Updates from 'Jacinto&Lirio: Statement Plant Leather from the Water Hyacinth'
1 new Announcement:

  • Last June 2011, a river-clogging plant caused the devastating flood that struck 11 towns in Mindanao, Philippines. The ‘devil weed’ as they call it, the water hyacinth is known to infest most of our waters, resulting to clogged waterways, problems with irrigation and drainage, navigation, and fishing. The water hyacinth proliferation in Mindanao last year affected more than 600,000 people during the floods, and continues to affect the lives of Filipinos not just in Mindanao but all parts of the country.

    Jacinto & Lirio is doing our part to solve this problem one step at a time. By supporting our communities in Laguna and Pampanga who make the bags and journals, we are making the lives of Filipino women better by giving them sources of sustainable livelihood.

    We appreciate all the support from our funders and to our prospective funders as well! You are becoming a part of our story—a significant part indeed because without your help, we will not be able to achieve our goal. Scaling up our operations will help us scale to more communities, so that no water hyacinth proliferation can cause any more floods again.

    Why we are scaling to more communities
