In support of Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED), 19 November 2014, and in promotion of the the Women’s Empowerment Principles, SPARK! Philippines (one of the local partners of the Global Entrepreneurship Week held from November 17-23), SPARK! visited YWEB Fellow and Chocolate Princess, Dalareich Polot in Bohol to witness the growth of her delicious empire and to discuss future collaborations in her ‘chocolate with a purpose’ plans. (See a separate article written by Shamah Bulangis in the SPARK! Stories).
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.
ABG received the Certificate through its President, Atty. Pristine Raymond.
SPARK! and ABG are planning to do several projects in the coming months for the benefit of the local communities in the province.
