ADRA Philippines Country Director, Tom Pignon, and his team from ADRA Philippines, together with Mr. Samuel Ndikumana of ADRA Canada, and President of East Africa Star University visited CBSUA last June 8, 2022 to strengthen ties with the University. ADRA is one of the University partners in extending services to the Bicol community. The organization is assisting vulnerable communities particularly those which are affected by disasters and families living in extreme poverty to promote social development.
With the commonality in mandate, ADRA, and CBSUA sealed a commitment to partner in delivering Organic Agriculture Technology, GAD, IPs, and livelihood-related services. CBSUA’s mandate of serving communities and its expertise in generating agri-based technologies complements with the ADRA’s mission of serving humanity.
Prof. Lily John Casimiro of OAC, Prof. Glen Redecillas of GAD, and Prof Jesusa Taumotorgo of IP Center, assisted by the Director of Extension Services Division, Dr. Vladimir Foronda, lead the implementation of the partnership.
