By Presidential Proclamation No. 493, Series of 2004, the entire cooperative movement annually celebrates Cooperative Month every month of October. The spirit of cooperativism is rekindled through the holding of national and local activities where participation of cooperative members and leaders is discernible during this month.

For this year, the theme for the Cooperative Month is “Cooperatives: The Catalyst of Change through Poverty Eradication and Social Transformation”. The theme highlights the potential contributions of cooperatives in overcoming and ending the poverty problem in the society. Through the various livelihood programs and projects initiated and different products and the services offered, people get the chance of enjoying more improved lives and thus open door for transforming the society from that of being hopeless and enslaved by poverty to that of being conquering and flourishing. #
