TOFARM 2013 in full swing

After the success of the first ever TOFARM Awards of 2012, the committees and members of JCI Philippines rallies yet again to promote the 2013 initiatives of TOFARM, with the commitment to cover and visit more areas and farm cooperatives throughout the Philippines.

The program set about by UHI and JCI Philippines has already reached many areas of the country and is now anticipated by numerous agri-cooperatives who were unable to participate during the initial launching and awards. Both are teaming up for a full scale campaign to promote TOFARM 2013 in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
