MetadataShow full item record
Zamboanga City—Sixty-year-old Badjao fisherman Munib Araa always dreamed of a boat he can call his own but he was too poor to buy one. His story and those of other Badjao fishermen have brought to life the saying that giving a man fish could feed him for a day but teaching, or helping, them fish could feed them for a lifetime. On Monday, Araa tried to fight back tears of joy as he received a fiber glass boat from the Department of Agriculture (DA) and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR).
