25 farmers learn Korea’s secret to success

ILOILO - Twenty five farmers from different barangays in the poor town of Badiangan were taught of principles and strategies used by South Koreans in the early ‘70s to transform their war-torn country into an economic power house now. The successful rural modernization campaign known as Saemaul Undong (SMU) or New Community Movement was introduced to these organic farmers during the SMU Leadership Training held in Badiangan Central Elementary School on Wednesday (July 1, 2015).
