Corporate Social Responsibility (BITGAP goes to Bien Unido)

I recently joined the Bohol Island Tour Guides Association of the Philippines, Inc. (BITGAP). Last October 10, 2011 (Monday), we had our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activity. We went to the town of Bien Unido, located at the northern part of Bohol, about 107 kilometers away from Tagbilaran City. It took more than two hours to get there from the city by bus. We visited Hingotanan West Seaweed Farming, which was more than an hour away from the mainland by boat. We interacted with some seaweed farmers and they showed us the basics and techniques they use in planting seaweeds. We also went to an island about an hour away from the seaweed farm, still part of/ one of the barangays of Bien Unido, called Bilangbilangan East (/Diot).

Picture! Picture!

Going to Bilangbilangan East island. Our boat couldn’t reach the island cause the sea was getting too shallow so we all had to walk a distance from the boat to the island…
