KIDS Foundation headed by Atty. Karina Tanega went out of their way to visit the Miarayon KIDS.  Miarayon is about 8 hours away from CDO.  KIDS was assisted by Edmund del Castillo, Exec. Director of LSED, Jean Netario-Cruz, GM of SOD and Exec. Dir of GreenMinded and Ferdinand Cruz, Exec. Dir of EASTI.  Lito Ramos of Sta. Teresita Foundation for the KIDS of Miarayon is the coordinator for the School Supplies for Abel and Edmund for the Sta. Teresita.  Jean Cruz coordinated for the Daraghuyan in Malaybalay City.

Miarayon other than being far from CDO is also known as the warrior Tribe, the Talaandig.  We were warned but the group has all the courage of Father Dario, the Parish priest in Miarayon was with us.  The face of the people when we asked for the Miarayon direction shows that there was a tale of how frightful the place is being known as warriors domain.  Being to a place is far opposite from hearing the tale from the hearsays.  The place is so peaceful and enchanting.  The beauty is magnificent.  The Talaandigs are friendly yet it is true that they are armed to protect themselves from people who brings only misery to their place.  Miarayon has been raped byt the loggers.  Only a few trees were left.  Landscape of a previous volcano eruption made the place fertile that it is a perfect place to grow vegetable.  But then another problem is being experienced by the farmer here.  The middlemen who exploits them through financing their farming.  They almost earn nothing.  GreenMinded allies is exploring how to help the farmers for their livelihood, fair trade and fair equity.  Father Dario and Green Allies has been exploring the coffee of Miarayon to be its major banner.  Miarayon produces Arabica Coffee, known for its flavour and better price.  It has a huge market demand only if produces right.  Ferdinand Cruz' has assessed the place and the people that the idea can be done.

KIDS distribution of the school supplies to the beneficiaries were delivered on target.  The activity were sealed by the exciting white river rafting in CDO, a reward for everyone who cares.
