68 barangays benefit from DAR SulKud implemented P20.4-M PAMANA-ARA projects

piaISULAN, Sultan Kudarat, Sept 7 (PIA) – The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently completed the implementation of 68 peace projects amounting to Php20.4 million in 68 barangays in six municipalities of the province here, an official said.

Rodolfo Alburo, provincial agrarian reform program officer II of DAR Sultan Kudarat said that about 4,739 beneficiaries are now being helped by these projects.

These figures, Alburo said, represent the total number of members listed in the agrarian reform beneficiary organizations (ARBOs) in the 68 barangays in the province.

“There are about 3,155 ARBs, 1,328 non-ARBs and 256 indigenous people comprising the direct beneficiaries of the recently completed PAMANA-ARA projects, PARPO Alburo said.

The projects under the Payapa at Masaganang Pamayanan in Agrarian Reform Areas (PAMANA-ARA) are implemented in partnership with 68 ARBOs in the 68 barangays and local government units (LGUs) of Columbio, President Quirino, Lambayong, Isulan, Senator Ninoy Aquino and Lutayan. 

Alburo added, “these projects are intended to spur rural developments and  promote peace and order in the area.”

The completed projects include 25 units of solar dryers, nine (9) units of multi-purpose buildings, nine (9) animal dispersals, eight (8) units of solar dryer with shed, seven (7) construction of fences around barangay halls and schools, six (6) subdivision surveys of barangay sites, two (2) units of potable water systems, one (1) unit of post harvest facility, and one (1) unit of mini rice mill.

 “Each direct beneficiary belongs to one household, so imagine how many could actually benefit from these projects by simply multiplying it with each member of the household,” Alburo said.

He pointed out that farmers from neighboring barangays would also benefit from these projects.

 “For instance, a solar dryer or a potable water system in a far-flung barangay can serve not only the locals but also residents from neighboring barangays,” Alburo cited.“It could even be an income-generating service of the ARBO.” he added.

Last July 28, 2015, these projects underwent the final assessment and were inspected by DAR Inspection Team headed by team leader Pabil Marohomsalic.  The official said that PAMANA-ARA finaimplementation is a form of training for the ARBOs and LGUs on conflict resolution and management, people empowerment  and implementation of projects.

“PAMANA-ARA involves only Php300,000 per project, a small amount as compared to other government projects. With these, ARBOs and LGUs can practice on implementing the project with the required degree of transparency and implementation of the project according to approved program of works,” Marohomsalic said.

The P20.4-M projects for the 68 barangays in six towns were from the 2014 PAMANA-ARA funds released in December 2014. (ACAgad PIA 12 with reports from JJBDael,-DAR-Sultan Kudarat)
