The Kabuti Project was started by Abigail Dampog, a graduating multimedia arts student from De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde. Visiting Sitio Pactil made her realize the benefits that mushroom production can bring to a farming community. She was able to visit their mushroom house, meet the community and develop a relationship in a short span of time and with this, she realized how important the mushroom became to the community of Sitio Pactil.
With the community in mind, she created “The Kabuti Project” a website with a video feature that aims to showcase the benefits of mushroom production with Sitio Pactil as the model community. The Kabuti Project is a combination of the two filipino words: mushroom being “Kabute” and good as in “mabuti”. With the “bute” from kabute being changed to “buti” from mabuti, it symbolizes the goodness and the benefits that mushroom production brings to a community.
Through the following steps:
Share The Kabuti Project on your social media accounts. Help us spread awareness knowledge about the benefits of mushroom production for our small-time farming communities. By sharing the website more people might venture into the mushroom production, and will certainly support to keep the government and other non-government organizations on supporting livelihood programs for our small-time farming communities like Sitio Pactil.
Small-time farming communities like Sitio Pactil produce different products from their other livelihood programs — potato chips, for example. A lot of effort and budget are exerted into their products due to the lack of the materials and equipment. These communities spend their time and their strength on preparing these products in order to support their families!
Let us play our part by supporting these communities by buying their products and spreading the word about it! Our farming communities deserve so much more.
