2014 Laureate Global Fellow Cherrie Atilano

Cherrie co-founded Agricool in the Philippines with the goal of making farming “cool, smart, and sexy.” Located at the Gawad Kalinga Enchanted Farm, Agricool encourages the younger generation to pursue careers in agriculture-related enterprises. At the same time, it promotes reverse migration from urban to rural areas to sustain local development and ensure no one is left behind.
