PCU Kabalikat Outreach2

Enterprising Women

Kaakbay is an outreach project of PCU-ESD. The mothers, who help augment their families’ needs by selling their products, meet twice a month either on the PCU-Dasmariñas campus or inside the Sampaloc I Barangay Hall.  “It is very fulfilling to see them finish a product,” said Mrs. Miracle Belandres, ESD’s coordinator for Kaakbay. “Seeing the smiles on their faces makes all the hard work worth it.”
