From accomplishments to positive shifts, the event painted a vivid picture of change brought by the project since 2020.
The Livelihood Program, launched through the ceremonial dropping of coins into a bamboo bank, where each coin resonates with the promise of a brighter future for all and serves as a symbolic gesture, embodying the prosperity envisioned for the project.
