PhP400,000 set for anti-poverty program of NegOcc ARB group

radyo natinBACOLOD — The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has allocated P400,000 for the implementation of the Partnership Against Hunger and Poverty (PAHP) with Barangay Banog-Banog Agrarian Reform Farmers Association (BBARFA) in Isabela, Negros Occidental as the beneficiary.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Lucrecia Taberna said in a report Thursday the DAR in Negros Occidental entered into a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the Municipality of Isabela.

The PAHP, a collaboration between the DAR, Departments of Agriculture (DA) and of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), seeks to reduce hunger and poverty in selected rural communities by increasing the income of households of agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs).

Taberna said Barangay Banog-Banog was the lone recipient of the PAHP project in Negros Occidental.

The project, which includes project-related technology training, and purchase of machinery and equipment, will start within the year, benefitting at least 1,000 residents, particularly farmer-members of BBARFA headed by president Rodito Balasabas.

The MOA states that the local government will serve as the procuring party of the food products produced by the BBARFA for its supplemental feeding program with the DSWD.

The municipality will also provide additional support to the recipient-ARB organization through provision of technical guidelines to ensure the project's sustainability.

BBARFA, which will initiate the construction of the facilities, will serve as integrator of the whole endeavor especially in the production of vegetable and other crops, and operation and maintenance of the facilities as its joint venture with the individual farmer-beneficiaries.

It will set up 1,000-square meter area to be used as demo farm and project site. (PNA)— KBAPI
