DAR restores 13 daycare centers in South Cotabato

piaKORONADAL CITY, South Cotabato, Aug 17  (PIA) --  Thirteen  day care  centers in  nearby Tampakan town have recently been rehabilitated  courtesy of the Department of  Agrarian  Reform Provincial  Office  in South Cotabato.

Nestor Villanueva, provincial agrarian reform officer 1  and CARPO for Support Services Lorna Garde  and Tampakan Mayor  Leonardo  Escobillo led the turn over  ceremony  of the    early childhood  care  facilities to the officials of the ten beneficiary barangays  on Tuesday, August 16.  

The day care centers, which were  refurbished through  the  Bottom-up  Budgeting (BuB) program are located  in the  following  barangays: Albagan, Buto, Danlag, Kipalbig, Lambayong, Maltana, Palo, Pulabato, San Isidro, and Tablu.  

In his message,  Villanueva  lauded the  local  government  unit  for “successfully implementing the project and completing the rehabilitation of the daycare centers as expected from an awardee of the Seal of Good Housekeeping.”  

He explained that  originally  the  BuB  funding was intended  for only one daycare project amounting  to Php1,046,500 but LGU-Tampakan was able to stretch the funding to cover rehabilitation of  13  centers in 10 barangays.  

“DAR, as funding agency for the project, is very happy to be a part of the childrens’ Munting Pangarap which is the beginning in forming the children’s dream to become what they envision to be in the future,” Villanueva added.  

On his part, Mayor Escobillo  thanked DAR for supporting the project and the barangay officials for their cooperation.  

“Let us take care of the facilities provided for our children so that they may enjoy going to school and learn new things,” the local  chief executive  reminded  his village  officials.  

The Bottom-up Budgeting (BuB), now called the Grassroots Participatory Budgeting (GPB) Project was formerly adopted through DBM-DILG-DSWD-NAPC Joint Memorandum Circular No. 1, dated March 8, 2012, as a strategy in pursuing the Millennium Development Goal of reducing poverty as well as the government’s goals of inclusive growth and poverty reduction.  

The GPB/BuB is also intended to make planning and budgeting processes of both local and national governments more participatory through the genuine involvement of grassroots organizations and communities, and to strengthen the convergence of delivery of national services to the community.
