DAR partners with La Carlota for potable water project

radyo natinBACOLOD — The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has partnered with the City of La Carlota in Negros Occidental for the P130,000 drinking water project in Barangay San Miguel.

The Community-Managed Potable Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene (CPWASH) project will be implemented through the memorandum of agreement (MOA) forged between DAR-Negros Occidental II and the city government as of Thursday.

The DAR counterpart will amount to P80,000, including P50,000 for the purchase of construction materials and P30,000 for the project-related technology training in the identified project sites.

It will also hire and train para-engineers to work in the construction of the facilities starting this week.

For its part, the city government will allocate P50,000 for the labor requirement and livelihood project components.

According to DAR-Negros Occidental II, this CPWASH initiative is expected to benefit 256 students and teachers of San Miguel Elementary School, 31 households of Sitio Dulom, Barangay San Miguel, and 60 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs).

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Lucrecia Taberna said the project seeks to enhance the access of beneficiaries to safe drinking water and promote ecological sanitation through low-cost, culturally acceptable, and appropriate technologies.

Taberna signed the MOA with City Agriculturist Noel Camilla, who represented Mayor Luis Jalandoni III, and Estela Agrarian Reform Cooperative chairman Nelson Agotmo in rites held at San Miguel Elementary School.

"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 added. (PNA)— KBAPI
