Matigsalug group undergoes values formation

Fifty members of the Matigsalug tribe have attended recenlty a values formation training and team building activity organized by AboitizPower subsidiary Therma South, Inc. (TSI) and Aboitiz Foundation, Inc. (AFI).

The activity, conducted in cooperation with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI 11) and the Matigsalug Council of Elders Marilog District Davao City, Inc. (Macoemaddaci), was part of the crafts livelihood project of Aboitiz Power for the indigenous peoples. It aims to capacitate the Matigsalug tribe members into developing quality, culturally inspired clothing, baskets, and fashion accessories that can be sold commercially.

The activity endeavors to instill values of teamwork and good work ethic in the Matigsalug trainees, as AboitizPower and DTI believe that starting the crafts program with a right mindset is key to a successful livelihood intervention for the Matigsalugs.

During the activity, participants discussed the values necessary in forming a cohesive team. This was done through fun-filled discussions and games. Members of the Davao Designers Pool were also in attendance to train the participants on product development and quality control.

“We did not expect that a lot of people are willing and interested to help the Matigsalug tribe.,” Macoemaddaci leader Datu Diosdado Mampao said in the dialect. (pr)
