DAR pushes sustainable livelihood for Isabela ARBs

sunstarTHE Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in Negros Occidental has partnered with the Camangcamang Integrated Farmers Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Association (Cainfarba) in Isabela town for the implementation of a sustainable livelihood project.
Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Lucrecia Taberna, who led the memorandum of agreement signing at Barangay Camangcamang Wednesday, said the agency is allocating P250,000 for the project.
 
Of the amount, P150,000 will be used for the purchase of 500 heads of duck and incubator machines for balut making; P40,000 for capability building; and P60,000 for technical trainings.
 
The recipient-agrarian reform beneficiary organization, meanwhile, will manage and operationalize the project pursuant to the approved project proposal.
 
Taberna said the project aims to enable ARBs to establish livelihood activities that will generate income, restore productivity, and create new opportunities for better and sustainable rural employment.
 
“It is also positioned to develop sustainable enterprises anchored with harmonious environment which will result to increase in productivity and household income,” she said, adding that it targets to cover at least 56 farmer-members of the organization.
 
On May 30, DAR-Negros Occidental II also partnered with the Isabela municipal government for implementation of a project aimed to curb poverty among the farmer-beneficiaries Barangay Banog-Banog Agrarian Reform Farmers Association (BBARFA).
 
The partnership program dubbed Partnership against Hunger and Poverty (PAHP) is a collaboration of three agencies, including DAR, Department of Agriculture, and Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
 
The initiative is mainly aimed at reducing hunger and poverty in selected rural communities by increasing the income of the households.
 
The agency allocated P400,000 to fund various project-related technology trainings, and purchase of machineries and equipment, which will directly benefit at least 1,000 residents, particularly farmer-members of BBARFA.
