Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. (BAVI) President Ronald Mascariñas graced the summit organized by the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) which aimed to promote and protect the welfare of Indigenous Cultural Communities/IPs (ICCs/IPs). The event was held at the Armed Forces of the Philippines Commissioned Officers’ Clubhouse in Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City.
Mascariñas delivered a message reiterating BAVI’s commitment to work with the NCIP through the company’s livelihood programs for the people in the indigenous cultural communities.
With the theme, “Building Families, Building Ancestral Domain/Ancestral Land Communities and Building the Nation,” the summit highlighted the role that NCIP, government agencies, and the private sector play in nation-building and for the well-being of the country’s ICCs/IPs.
