GKONOMICS regularly gathers entrepreneurs, partner communities, partners, and volunteers for a few hours of inspiration, updates, and fellowship.
One of the attendees describes his experience in these assemblies, “I love being a part of GKON assemblies because I always learn something, feel re-energized and inspired especialy by the stories and sharings, and I am empowered knowing that I am a part of a big family that supports me in my journey.”
In 2018, GKONOMICS entered into a partnership with the Hernandez Family who owns a beautiful, idle 1.6 hectare farm in Lipa, Batangas that was once a thriving agri-preneurship training ground for disadvantaged youth. It is now home to GKONOMICS efforts to promote countryside development.
In 2019, GKONOMICS partnered with nearby Dagatan Family Farm School, a hybrid school (Grades 7-10), offering the farm as a base for developing future agri-preneurs to help spur countryside development in the Philippines.
