DAR USEC led distribution of shredders to ARBOs in EV

piaTACLOBAN CITY, Leyte, June 17(PIA) ---An official of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) asked the agrarian reform beneficiary organizations (ARBOs) in Eastern Visayas to be responsible enough in using the shredding machines distributed to them.

Undersecretary Rosalina L. Bistoyong who led Wednesday the distribution of the shredding machines at DAR regional office compound appealed to the ARBOs to become the role model to other agrarian reform beneficiaries.

“At sana po kasama sa responsibility ang inyong pangangalaga dito sa ating mga equipments dahil hindi po biro-biro ang amount na ating ibinuhos dito,” Bistoyong said.

 A 6-months hands-on training for beneficiaries is included in the project.

Nonoy Moraca, technical consultant of the RU Foundry, the manufacturer of the machine assured to extend the necessary assistance to the ARBOs particularly on the training in order to achieve success in this project.

The machines, amounting to P49.5 million were funded under the Agrarian Reform Communities Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) and among DAR’s major contribution to the livelihood cluster to the Yolanda Recovery and Rehabilitation Program.

Of the 500 agrarian reform beneficiary organizations (ARBOs) in the region, 100 were selected to benefit after they underwent screening.  Fifteen ARBOs initially received the machines during the turn-over ceremony.


The machines will be used by the beneficiaries to turn biodegradable debris into income generating activities and produce community-based organic fertilizer.

The distribution of the shredders was one of the highlights of the 27th year anniversary of CARP implementation in the country. (ajc/cba/PIA-8)
