The major industry in the Kabankalan region is sugarcane. Remuneration to workers is very low. Generally, these workers are squatters on land owned by the sugar plantations. ERM Kabankalan endeavours to build communities for mutual support and initiate livelihood programs to increase income. The focus of ERM Kabankalan’s programs is Sustainable Community Development.

ERM Kabankalan works to empower the very poor through targeted community education enabling them to uplift themselves from extreme poverty.
