Empowering Mindanao: Promoting Communities of Practice Through Volunteerism, Tech and Innovation

I was born and raised in the beautiful province of Bukidnon, from very humble beginnings, I witnessed firsthand how technology can transform lives and bridge gaps in education, communication, and opportunities, fueling my passion for tech as a tool for empowerment.

Volunteering from the first Techstars Startup Weekend Bukidnon back in 2017 allowed me to give back to my community, share my skills, and collaborate on solutions that drive meaningful change. My dedication to Mindanao, my home, stems from its rich culture, diversity, and untapped potential. By promoting ICT and innovation, I aim to empower local communities, drive sustainable economic development, and ensure that the benefits of technology reach even the most remote areas, ultimately fostering a more inclusive and equitable future. mamakikin.co
