Moreover, the Amicitas Business Group, an association of business and professional women in Negros Oriental who are successful entrepreneurs, lawyers, doctors, artists and Mothers, was awarded for being a shining example of work-life balance and balancing the perfect formula for passion and purpose. The ABG is active in social engagement in the region especially focusing their efforts in women, children and the environment. One of their latest pursuits, with SPARK!’s support, is the furnishing of the Women and Child Protection Units.
