The goal is to foster steady increase of youth venturing in the agriculture sector, invigorating investment and scientific advancement to achieve sustainable food supply;
The search and award for farmers is an initiative since the early 70’s by the Philippine Jaycees (now JCI Philippines) as an award program in recognition of the resiliency, ingenuity, and the strength of our hard working Filipino farmers. The search will be inclusive and participative, expanding from public to private sector stakeholders in agriculture, fisheries and livestocks. This project is open to all Filipino farmers, fisherfolk, animal raisers, cooperatives, farm communities, organizations, education/academe, agriculture scientist, LGUs and public employees, and business entities in both rural and urban areas/centers. Winners and their work of life shall be published in our website to share the knowledge and best practices in agriculture so we may imitate. Please visit www.tofarm.org for more details.
