The Kariton throughout history is part of a Filipino culture.
Growing up in the Philippines we have seen various ways a Kariton is used. From the makeshift sari-sari store, rolling classrooms, to some would even call a home. And through Filipino ingenuity karitons are created from various recyclables.
JCI Legazpi and JCI Senate Legazpi brainstormed and took the challenge of creating something that keeps this Filipino Culture and Ingenuity, while at the same time expand the versatility and use of our ordinary Kariton……
