CP-WASH project to benefit Himamaylan schools, community

piaNEGROS OCCIDENTAL, May 19 (PIA6) - - The Department of Agrarian Reform-initiated Community-Managed Potable Water And Sanitation Hygiene (CP-WASH) project in Sitio Tara, Barangay Carabalan Himamaylan City will benefit four schools, an old public market and the agrarian reform community (ARC) in the area.

The project will benefit the elementary schools of Carabalan, Campayas, Culban and a day care center in the village.

More than 1,200 students and teachers will benefit with the bio-sand filters and Rain Water Collector with 106 agrarian reform beneficiaries in the ARC.

The project includes three units of Bio-Sand Filter (BSF), two units of Iron Removal Filter (IRF), one unit Bio-Gas Digester (BGD) and one unit Rain Water Collector (RWC).

The Tara Agrarian Reform Cooperative (TARC), a successful cooperative in the village will manage the project which has counterpart funds from DAR amounting to P70,000 for the trainings and technology and the local government of Himamaylan amounting to P50,000 for the construction materials while the cooperative will shoulder the labor cost of eight para-engineers who will begin construction of the project next week.

DAR Assistant Regional Director for NIR Dr. Antonio del Socorro told the members of the cooperative to embark on the project with a sense of ownership and see its impact on a long term scale.

“This will provide you with potable water that will make you healthy and if you are healthy, you are productive.  If the project becomes sustainable, it will benefit you by increasing your level of production and income,” del Socorro said.

Meanwhile, TARC General Manager Pacita “Nene Decs” Decatoria urged the members of the cooperative to do their share and participate in the project since they are partners of DAR and the LGU in development.

The signing of the Memorandum of Agreement among DAR, the local government of Himamaylan and TARC represented by its chairman Hortecia Romay officially launched the start of the project. *(JCM/EAD-PIA6 Negros Occidental)
