2020 was one of the toughest years for fisherfolks in Caramoan, Camarines Sur. Majority of them, if not all, are relying on seaweed farming and tourism for their livelihood.
Under Hapag-Kapwa, our goal is to support farmers and fisherfolk by helping them put food back on their tables and rebuild for their trade. In partnership with Agrabah Ventures, an end-to-end agritech start-up, we aim to support seaweed farmers and their families with relief packs (e.g. rice, vegetables, etc.) and tools for their livelihood (e.g. initial planting implants).
Since its creation in February 2021, we have raised more than Php 280,000 for seaweed farmers. Together with our 40+ partners, we have turned over flip flops, food packs, goggles, nylon rope, motors, and seaweed propagules for hundreds of seaweed farmers.
