DAR hands over P1.2 M assistance to farmer groups in N. Cotabato

piaKIDAPAWAN CITY, North Cotabato, Apr. 29 (PIA) --   Four  farmer organizations in Banisilan  town in North  Cotabato   recently  received   peace  projects  with  a combined  value  of  P1.2 million, an official of the  Department Agrarian Reform here announced.

Marion  Abella, provincial  agrarian  reform officer II, said  the infrastructure  projects, amounting to  P300,000 each,  were carried out under the national government flagship program Payapa at Masaganang Pamayanan (PAMANA).

Abella  identified the  beneficiary  groups as the  Moroland Farmers Association in Barangay Pantar, Kalipunan ng Liping Pilipina (KALIPI) Association in Barangay Wadya, Gastav Agri-Service Cooperative, and Carugmanan Rural Improvement Club.

“These four farmer groups received the second cycle of the PAMANA projects based on their proposal and priority needs,” Abella said.

He elaborated said that except   for  Gastav Agri-service  Coop,  the recipient organizations  previously availed of  assistance  for the construction of multi-purpose buildings.

Gastav Agri-service Cooperative was granted a  solar  dryer in  the  initial   cycle.

Vilma Ofiana,  president of KALIPI,  thanked  DAR and  PAMANA  for the  project  as this  would  mean having a place  to hold  meetings, general assemblies  and  other social activities.

“The project from PAMANA is very empowering to women in our barangay. We really feel that we are given favor by the government because our proposals are heard and materialized,” Ofiana said.

Ofiana also assured DAR officials that they will take good care of the project to make it useful in the community and make it sustainable in the best way that they can.

Meanwhile, Board Member Maybel Valdevieso of North Cotabato 2nd district complemented the projects with 40 monobloc chairs for each organization.

During the  first  year of PAMANA project  implementation  last year,  barangays Pantar, Wadya, Gastav, and Carugmanan also received solar dryer, cow dispersal, goat raising, and potable water system projects, respectively.

PAMANA project is the government’s program and framework for peace and development in conflict-affected areas through community infrastructure and focused delivery of social services. (DEDoguiles-PIA 12   with report  from  ROrejudos-DAR North Cotabato)
