ORE than 220 farmer-trainees of the SM Foundation’s Kabalikat Sa Kabuhayan (KSK) Farmers’ Training Program – Batch 216 recently capped off the 12-week training program with a bountiful harvest festival and a graduation ceremony on December 17 and 18, respectively, in Pampanga.
Through this program, farmers were equipped with knowledge on sustainable farming technologies to help them bring food on their table and create economic opportunities for them and their families.
Unlike the previous batches, the Batch 216 was divided into six sites – one of which was a regular KSK training site (San Isidro, Sta. Ana, Pampanga); four sites for TESDA-Organic Agriculture Production NC II (Sto. Rosario in Sta. Ana, Brgy. Anon in Floridablanca, and Sitio Pidpid and Brgy. Sapang Uwak in Porac, Pampanga); and one site for TESDA-Agri-Crop Production NC III (Bamban, Tarlac).
