“The food really tastes good and we had such a great experience,” shared by one of the satisfied customers of White Sand SEA-K Association (SKA), Ms. Louela Mae Lanzaderas. White Sand SKA is located in Brgy. Daku, General Luna, Siargao Islands, Surigao del Norte. The 24 Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) participants of the said group agreed to fuse their grant to ensure economic viability. These participants are all Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program partner-beneficiaries.
High foot traffic of tourists have been visiting the island due to its astonishing scenery. It’s also a great place for a combo day-trip of surf and beach. However, access to food is not easy in the island. With this, the group decided to engage in catering services. They serve sumptuous food with an affordable price compared with the rates other hotel or resorts offer. They also offer island hopping services as part of the package.
