MANILA -- When Typhoon Yolanda struck the fishing villages of Madridejos in Bantayan Island in Cebu, people lost their homes and livelihood.

Today, they are rising from the devastation with the help of organizations like WWF-Philippines and ArthaLand.

These two organizations recently teamed up with the Tambuyog Development Center and the community to conduct a home container farming training to ensure food security and a sustainable source of income.

More than 50 families were trained to become the inspiration for their community to adopt this alternative livelihood.

WWF and ArthaLand have been working together for six years now to promote environmental awareness and climate change resiliency. Education programs have been conducted with several communities, local government units, and public elementary schools.

The Kaugmaon Project is just the beginning of their long-term commitment to serve the Cebuano community.
