Want to be a warrior? Have you seen a rice terraces? Do you like to help? If you answered yes to all of these then here’s your chance to join a worthy cause. Probably you haven’t heard of “voluntouring” yet – for a few hours of your time in a famous wonder of the world you will get a chance to help restore a damaged beauty. Due to the recent typhoons and flash floods in Batad, Banaue, the hundred year old rice terraces has been damaged. So in an effort to restore this gem the Batad Weekend Warrior has been established. The program started last February 2012 and will end December 2012 so hurry and make your weekend count!
Batad rice terraces is now officially off the endangered list! Hurrah for everyone’s hardwork. The initiative is still on going so all help is still welcome.
