DAR-funded potable water project to benefit 500 San Enrique residents

sunstarlogoAT LEAST 500 residents of Barangay Batuan, San Enrique are seen to benefit from the Community-managed Potable Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene (CPWASH) project of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) and the Municipal Government.

A memorandum of agreement (MOA) was signed Monday by Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Lucrecia Taberna, Mayor Jilson Tubillara and San Enrique Agrarian Reform Cooperative chairman Eduardo Moscoso.

DAR Negros Occidental-South, in a press statement, said agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs), students and residents of the barangay will benefit from the project aimed at enhancing the access of the residents to safe drinking water and promote ecological sanitation through low-cost, culturally acceptable and appropriate technologies.

Under the MOA, DAR will allocate funds amounted to P80,000 as counterpart.

Of the amount, P50,000 is intended for the purchase of construction materials. The remaining P30,000 will be used for the project-related technology trainings in the identified project sites.

The agency will also hire and train para-engineers who will work in the construction of the facilities starting this week.

The Municipal Government, on the other hand, allocated P50,000 for the labor requirement and livelihood project components.

“DAR adopts the agrarian reform community development program approach as a key strategy to address limited sources and synchronize efforts and interventions among program stakeholders,” Taberna said.

The measure is vital in providing development interventions to ARBs to ensure economic, political, socio-cultural and ecological viability of their communities, she added.

Taberna also challenged the members of the cooperative to unite and to protect and conserve the support services they received from various government agencies like DAR. (EPN)
