Proponents of the Save the Ifugao Rice Terraces Movement can now count on the support of RBAP as the association recently pledged its intention of donating 25,000 pesos, which will be used to purchase a mechanical grass cutter for the rehabilitation of the terraces. Members and trustees of the RBAP board unanimously gave their resounding concurrence in helping regain the old splendour of the rice terraces during their monthly meeting last January 20, 2012.
The campaign to Save the Ifugao Rice Terraces is part of a nationwide PWD-project, culminating on February 3-4. As mentioned in the previous web post, proponents of this undertaking are also encouraging Filipinos and non-Filipinos alike to revive the Bayanihan spirit by volunteering.
The support for the rehabilitation of the Rice Terraces is one of the many notable CSR projects of the Rural Bankers Association of the Philippines. While RBAP is a not-for-profit advocacy association, helping to position its members as a formidable force within the Philippine national banking system, the association nonetheless never fails to engage and participate in worthy socio-civic activities.
