Mushrooming partnerships: Project KKK joins 2nd BYLC

By Errol Ivan Badong

Naga City --- a remarkable organization is making waves not only as a champion for sustainable livelihood but also as an invaluable partner in advocating for social change. Project Kabutehan Para sa Kabuhayan at Kalusugan (Project KKK) is lighting up communities with hope, and their collaboration with the second Bicolano Young Leaders Congress exemplifies their commitment to fostering impactful partnerships.

Project KKK is no ordinary initiative; it’s a beacon of hope for mushroom growers in the Gawad Kalinga Abanggayon Village. For these growers, it’s not just about cultivating mushrooms; it’s about cultivating livelihoods and improving health. With sustainability at its core, Project KKK offers a lifeline, equipping individuals with the skills and resources needed to grow mushrooms and earn a dignified living.

As a staunch advocate for community development, Project KKK joined forces with the second Bicolano Young Leaders Congress, held in Vinzons, Camarines Norte, from August 26th to 28th, 2023. The organization’s mission dovetailed beautifully with the Congress’s theme, “Journeying Towards Creating Impacts.”

One remarkable facet of Project KKK is their innovation in producing “mushroom chicharon.” This delectable snack, born from the humble mushroom, not only delights the palate but also serves as a symbol of empowerment. During the Congress, it served as a tasty treat for delegates and a thoughtful token of appreciation for resource speakers and discussants.

But Project KKK’s involvement in the Congress goes far beyond snacks. Their participation is a testament to their commitment to elevate their advocacy, to inspire and assist other initiatives, and to forge stronger partnerships with like-minded organizations and individuals. By taking an active role in the event, they have demonstrated their dedication to promoting positive change, not only within their community but across the entire Bicol region.

In a world where collaboration is key to addressing complex challenges, Project KKK’s involvement in the second Bicolano Young Leaders Congress is a shining example of how diverse organizations can come together to create a better future. Their mushroom-based livelihood program, their delectable mushroom chicharon, and, most importantly, their unwavering dedication to social change remind us that small initiatives can have a profound impact.

As Project KKK continues to cultivate both mushrooms and partnerships, their work stands as an inspiration to all who seek to make a difference. Their story is a testament to the power of community, sustainable livelihoods, and the shared vision of creating a brighter, more prosperous future for all.
