Aboitiz Group trains La Trinidad LGU and MSMEs on business continuity


Recognizing Benguet’s vulnerability to disasters, the local government of the provincial capital La Trinidad partnered with the Aboitiz Group to promote self-reliance among cooperatives operating in the municipality.

The Aboitiz Group, through its units Aboitiz Foundation, WeatherPhilippines Foundation, Aboitiz Equity Ventures – Risk and Security, and Hedcor Benguet, as well as the Mines and Geosciences Bureau conducted a series of disaster resilience-related training workshops for five cooperatives in La Trinidad, Benguet: Thanksgiving Multipurpose Cooperative, Barangay Alapang Multipurpose Cooperative, Lamut Multipurpose Cooperative, and Shilan.

This training coincided with the International Day of Cooperatives 2019 (Coops Day) on July 6. Coops Day celebrates increased awareness of cooperatives, underscoring the contributions of the cooperative movement in resolving major problems identified by the United Nations. It also strengthens partnerships between the international cooperative movement and the other groups.
