Your Native Title,
I sincerely acknowledge.
This land is your land!

(Lakan Sumulong)


Jobee Basas, our current intern, and I are excited to receive a very important document from the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) in Region 11. The NCIP has released its Certificate of Compliance to the Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) to the PeaceBuilders Community for the establishment of coffee drier and processing plant in Sitio Malipayon, Barangay Managa, Municipality of Bansalan, Province of Davao del Sur., with a corresponding resolution by the Bagobo-Tagabawa indigenous communities.

The coffee products would later be bought and marketed by Coffee For Peace.

The Support Team who accompanied Jobee and I in this task includes Tyron Ortiz, Byron Pantoja, Chacha Denila, Fred Abelitado, and Nite Alparas.

Good job, PBCI-CFP Team!
