piaKORONADAL CITY, South Cotabato,  Apr. 25 (PIA) --  Three  community-based organizations in  Polomolok town  received  livelihood projects  from  the Department of Agrarian Reform.

These  projects, according to a press statement from DAR-South Cotabato  were implemented  under the Payapa at Masaganang Pamayanan – Agrarian Reform Areas (PAMANA-ARA) Program.

DAR-South Cotabato identified the   recipients as Sulit Farmers’ Association (SUFA) and Sulit Tricycle Operators’ and Drivers’ Association (SULTODA) of Barangay  Sulit and Silway 8 Community-based Association  of  Barangay  Silway 8. 

Each group received Php300,000.

Roldan Ali, OIC PARPO II of DAR South Cotabato urged the recipients to build on the projects that  the  national government  has  granted them.

Meanwhile, Engr. Nestor I. Villanueva, chief agrarian reform program officer of the Program Beneficiaries Development Division of DAR South Cotabato, said the program aims to improve the lives not only of the recipients but also of the next generation.
