As Seen On...

As many of you know, not long time ago we added the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) to our regions list, a move highlighted by Philippine Global Explorers. 

This inclusion, driven by advocacy from our member Dr. Riza Rasco and the Philippine Global Explorers, showcases BARMM's rich culture and landscapes.
