DAR to empower Boracay’s Ati

news reg 1 pix 1 november 14 2018Agrarian Reform Secretary John R. Castriciones said the executive agency would extend support services to the indigenous people of Boracay Island who recently received agricultural lands from the government.

The land titles covering a total of 3.2064 hectares, which were personally handed by President Rodrigo Duterte, were given to 44 members of the Ati group under collective ownership.

“We will be providing the farmer-beneficiaries with planting tools and implements to maximize their efficiency when it comes to productivity,” Sec. Castriciones said.

He added that the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) would soon provide various trainings to help develop the land and uplift the economic lives of the Ati.

Community leader Delsa Justo, who received the Certificates of Land Ownership Award (CLOA) in behalf of the group, said they will take care of the land for their children and the future generations of Ati.

Aside from the Ati, Sec. Castriciones said that the DAR is also eyeing to distribute lands to the Tumandok who lives on some of the wetlands in the island.

“I have already made the necessary coordination with Department of Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Roy Cimatu so that they would be able to develop and preserve the land,” Sec. Castrciones said.news reg 1 pix 2 november
