TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, Philippines (PNA) – The Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), in partnership with Angelo King Foundation Inc. (AKFI), had just turned over the Technology and Livelihood Center to the Bohol Integrated Development Foundation Inc. (BIDEF) for their beneficiaries in Barangay Malitbog, Dagohoy.

PBSP program coordinator for Bohol Aurelio Salgados Jr. said AKFI’s assistance is intended to improve the productivity and income of the marginal farmers of Bohol.

Salgados said AKFI anchors its programs on the adage “give someone fish and you feed him for a day but teach someone to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
