THE UST-Simbahayan Community Development aimed for sustainable livelihood for its partner-communities during the week-long Pistang Tomas trade fair, which opened last Feb. 10.

Simbahayan Director Arvin said the 20 partner-communities were encouraged to deliver homegrown products all-year round.

May freedom `yong ating mga partner communities na magpadala dito ng kanilang produkto para hindi naman sabihin na one time, big time lang or one shot. Mas magandang may sustainability ngayong Pistang Tomas,” Eballo told the Varsitarian.

Eballo said partner-communities were the same from last year’s, including Farmer’s Association; Cooperative of Women in Health Development; Tiboli Tribe in Cebu; Ariendo, San Jose and Rodriguez in Nueva Ecija; Laguna; Rizal and Parañaque city jail.

Partner-communities took part in a two day-livelihood and entrepreneurship program of College of Commerce and Business Administration.

Pistang Tomas marked its 18th year with the theme “Pistang Handog, Pusong Tomasino.”

The event was led by Simbahayan, in partnership with the College of Commerce and Business Administration, College of Architecture, the UST-Alfredo M. Velayo College of Accountancy, Faculty of Arts and Letters and the Institute of Physical Education and Athletics. C.A.H. Torres
