Seaweed chips venture supports displaced Tawi-Tawi farmers, housewives and Badjao children

AT THE ONSET of the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) pandemic lockdown, Manila-based sisters Alyssa Sahali Tan, 21, and Dayang Iman Sahali, 23, immediately rushed home to the municipality of Panglima Sugala in Tawi-Tawi, with the intention to assist their local communities. Together, they launched Mangan by Iman, a social enterprise which aimed to change perceptions of the region. Juana’s Delight Seaweed Chips, named after their maternal grandmother, is their first product. Sourced from farmers at Barangay Tongbangkaw, the harvest is then processed by a team of mothers/housewives. Once done, the final product is brought to the Zamboanga City headquarters for marketing and distribution. Mangan by Iman lives up to its mission to place community development first before profit as a generous amount of the sales of Juana’s Delight is allotted to provide monetary assistance and school supplies for the indigenous children, especially the Badjao students in Panglima Sugala Sailing Boat School. Juana’s Delight accepts nationwide orders through the official Facebook and Instagram channels of Mangan by Iman. For inquiries, e-mail inquiries.byiman@gmail.com.
