Panabo City Bamboo Village
Panabo City in Davao del Norte is a city known for its sprawling banana plantation. This plantation, handled by the Tagum Development Corporation (TADECO), has continuously provided employment to locals and boosted the local economy.
In 2019, as part of TADECO’s commitment to its employees, its humanitarian arm, the Antonio O. Floirendo Foundation partnered with Base Bahay to build a sustainable community for its workers.
The project consists of two phases: a bamboo treatment facility, and Cement-Bamboo Frame homes for the workers.
The treatment facility aims to provide training and income opportunities to local farmers and workers on alternative bamboo building technology, while 100 CBFT homes will be provided to the local plantation workers and employees, giving them a safer community in which they can live comfortably and thrive.
Houses to be Built: 100
Beneficiary Profile: Low-income families, farmers and plantation workers
