AGREA President and Founding Farmer Cherrie Atilano signs a Memorandum of Agreement for the internship of Bachelor of Science in Development Communication students of the Visayas State University (VSU), one of the leading universities in Southeast Asia for research in agriculture.
VSU President Dr. Edgardo E. Tulin was present during the MOA signing last Friday, 16 June 2017, together with the Department of Development Communications Head Dr. Christina A. Gabrillo, and Internship Coordinator and Faculty Member Ma. Claudine Gica.
Also present during the MOA signing were the first batch of incoming student interns: Prince Darius Aquino Lina, Raymund Sanchez Pastoril, and Jeanie Rose Sua-ze Deluza.
The MOA provides the students with the opportunity to get exposed into an immersive learning environment and in a professional practice of development communication through a month-long On-the-Job Training in AGREA’s main office in Marinduque.
Cherrie Atilano is a 2007 alumna of the VSU who later on founded AGREA, an agri-social enterprise that seeks to develop a replicable one-island economic model founded on sustainable agriculture.
