Mary Hensley’s niece, Hope Morris, visited the Philippines and the project for two weeks during February. Hope, a budding commercial photographer living in New York City, is no stranger to the project. Hope took all of the product photos in the online store.

During her two weeks in the Philippines, Hope and Vicky traveled to Baguio City, the regional capital of the Cordillera Region; all three provinces where the project is operating; plus, the high elevation municipalities of Kibungan and Baukun, Benguet, which would like to join the project.

In Kalinga, Hope visited the municipality of Lubuagan, where Mary had been a US Peace Corps Volunteer thirty plus years ago. Her host was Isabel Agustin, the RICE, Inc coordinator for the Lubuagan area.  Thirty years ago, Isabel was the midwife at the Rural Health Unit in Uma, Lubuagan, where Mary was assigned.
