Magsaysay Holds Paper Crafts Livelihood Series Program

Wives Club members show their decorative home pieces made of recycled materials


Magsaysay Maritime Corporation (MMC), in cooperation with its Crew and Family Affairs Department and Homer Foundation, Inc. (HFI), staged the first phase of its Paper Crafts Livelihood Series Program last July 23, 2016 at Robert Hall, Ermita, Manila. 

The half-day event was targeted towards creating a sustainable livelihood opportunity for Magsaysay employees, crew, and allottees. Lilibeth Javilanar of JB Paper Crafts spearheaded the training on product design, costing and development, after which 200 participants learned how to create decorative home pieces and accessories out of recycled materials. “This is not only an entrepreneurial activity, but also a fun and creative way of reducing one’s carbon footprint and spending quality time with the family,” said Alfonso A. Pablo Jr., HFI Executive Director and MMC – Crew and Family Affairs Department Head.
