Socio Cultural Preservation

Cultural identity is essential in building harmonious and respectful relationships between cultures. Marcventures Mining and Development Corporation believes this should be given importance if development is to be sustained in its host communities. As such, the company fosters the preservation of a strong sense of identity through culture among the Manobo indigenous peoples (IP) and non-IP Surigaonons within and around its operations.

MMDC advances community participation in development projects, encouraging community members to take stock of their available resources, to identify their needs, and to understand their responsibilities to achieve those needs. This gives them a sense of ownership as regards their role, actions, decisions, and the outcomes.

MMDC also supports social activities that enhance cultural practices, such celebration of religious, tribal, and community festivals.
