I am thankful to DA-ATI for giving me a chance to pursue my dreams in earning a college degree thru the YAFP scholarship. My 2 elder brothers and 3 elder sisters were not able to enrol in college because our family is financially incapacitated to support them. The program encourages me to continue my study with the trust and confidence bestowed to me. It made me a responsible person and connected me to the community.  The program taught us to feel the need of the community and share what we have. Today, I could heartily say that “I become like this, not because of my hard work but because of the family whom I am not even bloodily related.” The relationship we have established with ATI-RTC X was like a family. The goodness of this family will not be forgotten in me. DA-ATI RTC 10 continue what you have started YOU ARE THE LIGHT of my AMBITION.

We are very fortunate

We are very fortunate; we were given this very rare opportunity to be among the first group in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon to be given this one of a kind training: the Farmers’ Field School – Rubber Production. We gain knowledge, ideas and practical understanding in the production and establishment of natural rubber, based on actual experiences of our Resource Persons.

Quote from a Farmer-Partner

Now that I have joined the Palaycheck FFS, I got a higher yield with lesser expenses. The grains are much fuller and heavier.

I was just a neophyte farmer but then I became the top grosser in our Province after I underwent FLE training and planted Hybrid Rice.
