Dire Husi Initiative

1:50 PM 0 Comments A+ a-



Couple of weeks ago, we were priviledged enough that we were invited by one of the co-founder of Dire Husi Initiatives~Mr. Rhyan CasiƱo for a  sumptuous "boodle fight" lunch with my cousins. Dire Husi Artsville's new location is in Mambatangan, Upper Puerto Cagayan de Oro City. If you really love arts, you will surely appreciates the place in itself. 

By the way, if you still don't know what Dire Husi means, here's an info that I got:

“Dire” is a Visayan word for “here” and “Husi“ is a Manobo word for “friend.” We are a youth organization, a creative social enterprise, an artisan collective, a band of world musicians, a training hub, and a fair trade advocate. If that already sounds a bagful, wait and see, because we believe that with faith and dreams, we could be so much more.

Wow! Kudos to all the people who are involve in this organization, they're not just plainly men and women for others but above all they are the mighty men and women of God! God bless all your advocacies!!

Once again, thanks for the invites Sir Rhyan! :) Sa uulitin!!!
