Cagayan De Oro City, we are not alluding to the Church involvement in local politics, as a whole. While there are few church leaders who are exerting political influence among the local parishioners, these few might have their own personal reasons. Perhaps, they do not want to believe that the “unscrupulous politicians” are using them. For instance, the politicians appoint some of these Church personalities to head

or chair various bodies in the guise of social awareness programs. After all, with the shower of privileges and the thought being close to the power-that-be, the Church believes it has a duty to protect its interest too. About three months ago, some speakers from Manila and other parts of the country came to Cagayan De Oro City. The team of speakers held lectures on the strengthening of faith at the Social Action Center in the St Augustine Cathedral compound. The participants to that lousy lecture were members of a Catholic charismatic movement (perhaps, a substitute of the CFC that has technically ceased to operate). The participants expressed the excitement that these “imported” speakers could provide new teachings to bolster their Catholic faith. The dedication and loyalty of the leaders of the local Catholic charismatic

movement are beyond reproach. These reformed lay workers of the Church have exemplified patience and obedience that they just simply keep their mouth shut! However, the speakers reportedly ruined the expectations of the participants. The gall of one of the lecturers, probably an elevated officer of the movement since he traveled around the country to spread the Gospel of Politics, inserts identifiable politicians in between lectures. He would talk about graft and corruption in the government and then, using a power point, flashed images of politicians he would accuse of being corrupt. Not contented, the speaker would remind participants that the politician alluded to should not get the support of the movement. What is happening to the Catholic Church these days?

THE Church should distance itself from politics. While it is true that the Church has a social obligation, its obligation should focus on alleviating the spiritual enrichment of its parishioners. It should not dip its fingers on politics. Doing so would only divide the beliefs of the believers because the parishioners do not necessarily support the Church’s political beliefs, if any. In fact, the principal reason of the disintegration of the “Couples for Christ,” (CFC) one of the most popular catholic charismatic movements in the 90s in Cagayan De Oro City, was the encroachment of politics in its ranks. The CFC members complained that the CFC leadership forced them to vote for a senatorial candidate. Well, that incident has eroded the credibility of the CFC that it gradually crumbled. Anyway, in the case of

Dr. Djuwari

throughout the country. A real nightmare. We realize that human beings are weak in some cases, but strong in other cases. Being weak is due to having no self-confidence. This self-confidence is that a status is not merely measured by the wealth. A status is not solely measured based on the prize possession. If a nation does not have such self-confidence they will be easily dragged into seeing money as the most powerful in life. These are the weak human beings. Others can be strong because they believe that the status can be measured by other factors, not money. They try to search anyone’s wealth. For example, how the money someone gets. How the wealth someone possesses. How the prize possession someone grabs. When they have investigated it and found the evi-

dence, then they either appreciate or evaluate money or wealth. It depends on the evidence they think good or bad. Integrity someone has can show where the money and wealth or prize possession he grabs from. These are the strongest human beings. The above models of the two different people groups are, now, in our live game. We can become either of them with the risks we realize to take but please never regret! We can decide who we are. We can judge how our personality is. We can also define what kind of human beings we are. That is so simple. We do not need to study in the best university to understand the play makers in politics. As the previous memory, track records are the best language to tell the nation about the candidates of leaders we have now. A socialization of this understanding of the whole nation is very important. This is a critical problem everywhere and anytime. But, for the candidates, it is also important to judge themselves by holding the philosophy of an ideal leader. The philosophy is that it is better to live one day as a lion than a thousand days as a lamb. (A Roman proverb). When he or she has been indebted too much for his

party or certain cronies, he or she must do things differently. This is a live game, but the whole nation is the priority if our nation life needs to be better. We have lived in long decades with the same symphony with the same orchestra on the same stage. No one wants to stumble again and again! Only the greedy people who want to enjoy glamorous life while ignoring the rest who live in powerless condition. Start this idea now! Go ahead now! Be more cognizant to perceive anything! Ignore our sense of vision! But, increase our sixth sense of perceiving the surrounding! Money is “beautiful” but behind the money, how to get it is more beautiful. By having this philosophy, we have made our days worthwhile. ----Editor’s note: Dr. Djuwari Sarkawi is the Director of Language Laboratory, STIE Perbanas Surabaya.

MSME sector, country’s main engine of economic growth – DTI Editor : CHRISTINE H. CABIASA - Editor : RUEL PELONE

Rafailes also commended the cooperation and support of the IGaCoS national agencies (BFP, BJMP, PNP, Task Force Samal and Barangay officials) who acted as the evaluators of the drill and for finding the simulation activity outstanding and the BFP for their prompt response to the

fire as part of the drill. Barangay Moncado Barangay Captain Benny Estrada was also grateful to the drill because this was a good exercise for them in responding to disaster especially that their barangay is the most populous barangay in Samal Island. HCBI Directress Sr. Dismas was also grateful for choosing the school for the drill of which she was hesitant at first for she don’t want their school to be put on shame. And yet, she was amazed of the very good outcome and the serious performance, she was happy, thankful and honoured and proud for choosing their school to the drill which she found would also help the preparedness of their students to probable disaster.

Customs to throw away P52.5m worth of Ukay-ukay Bukidnon • Camiguin • Lanao del Norte • Lanao del Sur • Misamis Occidental • Misamis Oriental

By GERRY LEE GORIT Correspondent

CAGAYAN de Oro City-The Bureau of Customs in Region 10 (BOC) will soon dispose the used clothings (Ukay-ukay) it seized from the Mindanao International Container Port Terminal (MICPT) in Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental last month. BOC-10 Chief for Assessment Division Nash D. Guro said the agency has three options in disposing the contrabands. First, Guro said is to bury the Ukay-ukay. The other, he said is to burn it but the agency has to get the green light of the Department of Environment and

logging activities in the area, around 5:30 a.m. on Thursday at Barangay Cuevas, Trento town in Agusan

Natural Resources (DENR). “We can also donate it to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) but it has to be properly documented--and should pass that tedious process,” Guro told Mindanao Daily News. He said the BOC-10 will dispose the Ukay-ukay as soon as possible to prevent port congestion at the MICPT. Earlier, the Intelligence Group (IG) of the BOC under Gen. Jessie Dellosa (retired) made a landmark accomplishment when its port of Cagayan de OroC u s t o m s I nt e l l i g e n c e and Investigation Service (CDO-CIIS) recorded the

agency’s biggest seizure of used clothing, locally called ukay-ukay. Alvin Enciso, BOCCDO-CIIS chief, said the agency was able to stop the release of 21 units of 40-footer container vans that were filled with ukayukay last month. The shipment was estimated to be worth P52,500,000 in the market. The shipment entered and was intercepted at the Mindanao International Container Port Terminal (MICTP) in Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental, which is a sub-port of the Cagayan de Oro port. “By virtue of the 21 alert orders issued by Customs

Deputy Commissioner Intelligence Group (IG) Jessie Dellosa, we were able to hold on to the shipment,” said Enciso. “The intensified vigilance against smuggling of the CIIS in the port of Cagayan de Oro paid off. We had set a new record in the BOC in terms of the number of apprehended container vans of used clothing. Under the guidance of DepCom Dellosa, we would surely do our best to accomplish more feats in our future operations,” Enciso added. All the 21 container vans were issued with Warrants of Seizure and Detention (WSD) and Forfeiture Orders given by Attorney Ruby

Claudia Alameda, district collector of Cagayan de Oro port. The shipment came from Malaysia and Korea. They arrived the MICTP between July 4 to 11, 2015. They were all consigned to Greener Pasture Marketing with address at no. 36 Acacia Street, Carmen, Cagayan de Oro City. While the customs broker was Abel Avergonzado, of Purok Talisayan, San Nicholas, Buhangin, Davao City. The shipment is made up of assorted articles such as bed covers, bed sheets, pillow case, blankets, bags, shoes and the prohibited Used clothing or Ukay-ukay. He explained that while

the importation of ukayukay is already a violation in itself, the CIIS also discovered “insertions” of other items in the 21 container vans that were not mentioned in their respective Import Entry documents. “We discovered that some ukay-ukay smugglers ventured into a new modus operandi. If before, the declared items were a complete falsity, now, they admit that it is a shipment of used clothing, except that they failed to mention some of the contents,” the CIIS official added. Meanwhile, the BOC-10 is set to auction this month the imported sugar it seized at the MICPT.

del Sur. The police report said that a unit of wing van truck (RLZ 134), driven by Isebro Pana ,28, a resident of Bunawan, Poblacion, Davao City; and his helper iden-

tified as Joemarie Narag, 28, a resident of Purok 10, Valencia City, Bukidnon were intercepted loaded with more or less 12,000 board feet of illegally cut Lawaan, with market value

at Php 500,000. The seized forest products which was believed to be illegally cut were now placed under the custody of the 133rd RPSC in Barangay Bunawan Brook

while Pana and Narag are now under the custody of Trento Police. The regional police is accordingly determined to intensify its campaigns against the wanton destruc-

tion of the region’s forest resources so as to help prevent destructive calamities as well as preserve the biodiversity of the region’s forests. A report from the Philippine News Agency

Group says Aquino overlooked environmental issues in Sona A GROUP of environmentalist expressed frustration over how President Benigno Aquino III’s skipped reports on some key environmental issues during his last State of the Nation’s Address (Sona) on July 27. Edel Garingan, PMPI project officer, said “what the country really needs is ecological rehabilitation and and conservation, and this is almost impossible

with the Philippine Mining Act and the poor implementation of our current environmental policies.” The President should push pro-environment projects to mitigate climate change, said Philippine Misereor Partnership, Inc. (PMPI) convener Sr. Cres Lucero. According to her, Aquino should also establish concrete measures to safeguard

communities from disasters and devastating effects of mining. Aquino “has forgotten his responsibility to take the lead in protecting the Philippine’s rich biodiversity and natural resources,” Lucero added. Past and most recent major environmental destruction has been associated with mining, said Yolanda Esguerra, PMI national coordinator.

“Af ter t he rele as e of t he E xe c ut ive O rd e r No. 79 in 2012, up to this time, what we have are categories for No-Go Zones for mining but still no specific area or province has b een de clare d as such in a policy or legal paper even at least on the part of the President,” she said.

It was tectonic in origin and had a depth of 40 kilometers. Phivolcs said Intensity 2 was felt in General Santos City. At 3.57 p.m. Friday, a magnitude 4.1 quake was also recorded by Phivolcs with its epicenter traced

122 kilometers southeast of Tarrangona, also in Davao Oriental. Like the first tremor, the second was also tectonic in origin and has a depth of 17 kilometers, Phivolcs said. At 12:02 p.m. Saturday, a magnitude 2.9 hit Alabel, Saranggani province with the epicenter traced 17 kilometers north of Alabel town. It has a depth of 26 kilometers and tectonic in origin. At 5:01 a.m. a magnitude

3.4 quake also hit Palimbang, Sultan Kudarat, the second tremor to hit the coastline of the province in two days. Tectonic in origin, the quake has a depth of 23 kilometers. On July 29, at 2:51 a.m. a magnitude 4.8 hit Palimbang with the epicenter traced 190 kilometers south of the coastal town. Phivolcs said there were no casualty or damages to property.

At that time, thousands of people died in coastal areas facing the Moro Gulf. The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) website listed 3,351 dead, 1,379 missing, 2,227 injured, and 43,534 left homeless in the calamity. It said the extent of damages to life and properties was high due to the fact that it happened just after midnight and the tsunami caught the people unaware. “More than 200 people died here, including my father and relatives. Dead bodies littered around. Others were found 40 to 50 days later,” Norhaiya recalled. See DRILL, page A11

P500m for cacao trees next year By Antonio L. Colina IV of MindaNews

DAVAO City--Some P500 million will be poured in Mindanao next year to increase by two-folds the number of cacao trees planted through the Double-Up Program. In an interview Friday, Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) executive director Janet Lopos told reporters that the Double-Up Program was

conceptualized with the Cacao Industry Development Authority of Mindanao Inc. (CIDAMI) in order to meet both global and domestic demand for cacao. Most of the funds will be downloaded by the Department of Agriculture (DA) while the counterpart of the MinDA will be P169 million. Lopos said more budget will be allotted for this project as other agencies such as Department of Environ-

ment and Natural Resources (DENR), Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), and Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA) are also expected to contribute in the program that will start next year. She said it is necessary to fasttrack the planting of cacao because Mindanao is being positioned as the top producer of cacao in the country. In fact, she said when See cacao, page 11

declaring eight areas in the country as mining-free zones. But these bills still require the concurrence of the Senate. Esguerra noted Aquino still has time to address the country’s environmental concerns. Lucero also asked Aquino to consider Pope Francis’ call to hear the cr y of the poor and of mother earth.

The last building standing By Arch. Fiel Espina-Reventar

THE field of architecture emerged from man’s survival instinct to seek shelter from the hazards of the natural environment. Over time, the architecture has come a long way from the caves of the earliest people to the bahay kubo of the preSpanish era, then to the bahay na bato of the Spanish time, and to the buildings seen now in the modern age. After all of these, the question remains, are the buildings that are supposed to provide shelter and protection really safe? What is a safe building? What building should withstand the test of time, especially times of natural disasters? To an architect, the hospital should be a safe place in times of disaster. Considering the country’s long history of destruction and deaths from earthquakes, typhoons and floods, it is the hospital that can provide shelter and health to everyone. It is where healthcare workers are stationed. It is also where life-saving equipment is available. It must, therefore, be the last building standing. In the Philippines, some of its health care facilities poorly dealt with a multitude of hazards, both natural and human-generated. Sadly, the ability of the hospital to endure the wrath of any disaster, a characteristic that should be intrinsic to its physical structure, is overlooked and even compromised for aesthetics and construction cost. Fortunately, some architects in the private sector are researching about the nature of such hazards and their effects on health facilities as it can be the key to unlocking the concepts behind architectural and engineering guidelines for building new health facilities that are safe from disasters. Every day, major health facilities all over the country drown in the crowds of patients demanding immediate medical attention. How much more during a disaster? In the event of disasters and emergencies, an even bigger crowd is to be expected and thus, a faster but equally efficient medical response is crucial. If the hospital itself becomes a victim of the natural disaster, the whole community will suffer. The breakdown of any health facility in such event is a disaster in itself and the aftermath could potentially be tragic. Minor interruptions in a health care system may cause major disruptions in medical functions and the nonstop provision of health care services. Hence, the health facility must become a place where medical care is continuous and can be provided to victims without delay. Safe health facilities, therefore, are required and this starts with the technical expertise of the architect. The cause to provide awareness on safe hospitals is more than a medical issue. It is a pressing concern in architecture that has to be addressed properly. There are, generally, three ways to make a hospital the safest place to be in during a disaster. The first approach is to check that architectural details and methods of construction of the past are still used in this day and age. Despite many encounters with earthquakes, typhoons and floods, the nation’s century-old churches still exist, a testament to the quality of architecture and construction of the old times. Next, maintenance is the key to long life. If the human body needs a habitual dose of physical activity to keep it strong, so does a building. Heritage buildings surely hold a regular schedule of general cleaning, repainting, re-finishing, re-screwing and others. Thirdly, ensure that, no matter the age of the building, it follows the latest building codes. Keep in mind that building codes are updated every so often. Currently, because of the revised structural code, newly-built hospitals are made to be 50% stronger than the old ones. For this reason, retrofitting of old structures is a must. ••• Feedback is encouraged. For inquiries, email the writer at

Solon wants Aug. 2 declared as Butuan City Charter Day By PAT SAMONTE, Caraga Regional Editor


UTUAN CITY – In pursuing a meaningful celebration of Butuan City Charter Day, Agusan del Norte First District Rep. Lawrence Lemuel H. Fortun has submitted a bill seeking to declare August 2 of every year as Butuan City Charter Day to be known as Adlaw Hong Butuan. The proposed measure under House Bill No. 5061 entitled “An Act Declaring August 2 of every year as Butuan City Charter Day and a Special

Non-Working Holiday in the city to be known as Adlaw Hong Butuan.” In his explanatory note, Fortun said that “Butuan became a political entity in 1907 through the enactment of Act No. 1693 and a city by virtue of Republic Act No. 523, otherwise known as the Charter of the City of Butuan which was signed into law on August 2, 1950. Since then, the people of Butuan have referred to the second day of August as the “Adlaw Hong Butuan” of

the Day of Butuan which they commemorate every year in remembrance of its history, and great achievement and the significant contributions of its people.” “Butuan City is blessed with rich cultural heritage, it has over 1,600 years of recorded history. It is known to be home of the Balangays, the ancient boats utilized by our ancestors in traversing Asia in the precolonial times, the oldest of which was carbon-dated 320 A.D. It is likewise host to the Bequibel Shell Midden that is proof to civilized human

existence in the area as early as the Neolithic Age. Thus, its people proudly lay claim to a declaration of their old folks, ‘In the beginning there was no Philippines, but there was Butuan.’” By declaring August 2 of each year as a special nonworking holiday in the City of Butuan, Fortun hopes to recognize Butuan’s historical niche as an ancient city and pay homage to the men and women who have contributed to its progress and development that should serve as inspiration and example to our people.

Congressman Lawrence “Law” Fortun is promoting the home of the famous Balangays and history-rich Butuan City quoting old folks as they claimed “In the beginning, there was no Philippines, but there was Butuan.” In a proposed law, he wants the celebration of the Adlaw Hong Butuan to be declared on August 2 to recognize the locality’s niche as an ancient city and give honor to the Butuanons who contributed to its development and progress . photo by pat samonte

Do not allow yourself to be disturbed Special Gospel of the day (August3, 2015-Monday) Luke 6:12-16”And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. And when it was day, he called [unto him] his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles; Simon, whom he also named Peter, and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew, Matthew and Thomas, James the [son] of Alpheus, and Simon called Zealots, And Judas [the brother] of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor: This gospel reminds us that before doing something, we must pray first to our God for further guidance and enlightenment.

Education Secretary felt pleasure to see all the support of the people from Mindanao thereby he strongly emphasized that the implementation of K to 12’’ IS JUST ONE LAST MILE AND WE CAN ALMOST SEE THE FINISH LINE.’’ This statement have reminded me of its first year of implementation where the universal Kindergarten started in SY 2011-2012 and private Kindergarten Schools filled with fears to decrease their enrolees gradually for a period of time. But along the way,everything was fully apprehended. Considering that Kindergarten is a pre-requisite for entering Grade 1 as stipulated in Republic Act 10157.Parents still have their own option as where to send their children for their education since private

institutions are recognized by Deped. On the other hand,’’ The Curriculum for Grade 1 and Grade 7 (1st Year Junior High School) was rolled out in SY 2012-2013,while the curriculum for Grade 2 and Grade 8(2nd Year Junior High School) was rolled out in SY 2013-2014 and the rest of the curriculum was being progressively introduced in the other grade levels in the succeeding school year. Grade 11 will be introduced in SY 2016-2017 and Grade 12 in SY 2017-2018. The first batch of students to go through Senior High School will then graduate in March 2018. Two years will be added after the current four-year high school program. This is what we call as the Senior High School or Grades 11 and 12.’’-FAQs K to 12 Deped 6 February 2014. The ingathering was foregrounded with testimonies and accomplishments by which each Division are honoured as they shared proofs of evidences on the preparedness of Senior High

There were selected Junior High School Students who shared their experiences on the intendancies of K to 12, its benefits and how did they gain from it.Ms.Lyn Joy Olana, a Grade 9 student of Impasugong National High School was one of them, she represented the Division of Bukidnon where strongly agree that the ultimate goal of Deped is to give an effective and quality basic education, a principle that underlies the mandated function of EFA (Education for All) The involvement of Deped personalities in diffferent divisions of Region X and the attendance of Br.Armin A. Luistro and company brought us an eloquent and noteworthy aftermath that made other stakeholders to support more, give more extend valuable services and be a correspondent on the awareness of the K to 12 program.

from page A1 Roman Catholic Church hiring political drum beaters to discredit and endorse politicians? According to a Roman Catholic priest, the Roman Catholics are losing followers compared to the growing number of followers of the other religious sects in the country. Well, now one realizes why this is happening. In Cagayan De Oro City, the politicians and their supporters are even using the names of Archbishop Antonio Ledesma, the head of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese and the Rev. Fr. Roberto Yap, the president of Xavier University, in pursuing a political agenda disguised as “social responsibility program.” We have no idea if the Archbishop Ledesma and Rev. Yap has allowed their names to be used to campaign for an obvious political agenda. Whatever, the people, especially the parishioners, should understand that politics is not part of the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church. Thus, the use of the names of known Church leaders by politicians and their allies is but another form of political misrepresentation. The church should not allow these things to happen at the expense of the parishioners. ––– Send comments/reaction:

Cacao... from page A8

farmers start to harvest, the next thing they will do is to develop a Mindanao brand. The Philippines has a shortage of around 40,000 metric tons (MT) of cacao, which have to be sourced from Malaysia and Indonesia. Despite the shortfall, the country has been exporting around 2,500 MT a year out of the 12,500 MT total annual production. Around 70 percent of the country’s cacao supply comes from Davao Region, which has 21,000 hectares planted to the crop. Davao City has 6,200 hectares, while Davao del Norte has 5,900 hectares. With the Double-Up Program, CIDAMI is looking at bringing the production level to 200,000 MT by 2020 with 2 million hectares planted to cacao. The original target set was 100,000 MT in 1 million hectares. Lopos said they will hire industry practitioners to do the monitoring on all crops starting next year in order to ensure that a sufficient supply will be attained by year 2020.


from page A8 She said if the people were only informed, trained on what to do, like in the earthquake and tsunami simulation conducted here Thursday for the culmination of the National Disaster Consciousness Month, many would have been saved in that tragedy.

To her recollection, the big earthquake on August 17, 1976 occurred just shortly after midnight, and lasted a few minutes. As the shaking intensified, people were yelling and crying, and rushed out of their homes situated along the coast of Kusiong beach. Then someone yelled “Tidal wave!” as the sea water receded then suddenly rushed back. Huge waves crashed into the coast, destroying anything and everything in its path. Everybody, including Norhaiya, rushed to the mountain about 500 meters away from the coast. Others did not make it and perished. In Thursday’s replication of the calamity, residents sounded off the alarm using a traditional bamboo instrument. Residents rushed away from the shoreline toward the mountains using the safety route advised by the organizers. A few minutes later, first responders – composed of personnel from the military, police, Bureau of Fire Protection and rescue groups – arrived. A horrific scene greeted the responders. Motorboats and bancas turned upside down, houses destroyed, people crying for help while others were out in the sea. In the aerial shot of GMA News, rescue workers hauled fisher folks, men and women from the sea. Many were “blooded,” others motionless. Rescue personnel applied first aid as fast as they could while others established emergency hospitals where the “wounded” were treated. There is also a place where those who played dead are settled in one place for proper identification of relatives. The simulation was skillfully carried out by representatives from various government agencies of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao that composed the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (RDRRMC). Engr. Rainer Amilbahar, PHIVOLCS-Cotabato station head, said the simulation was very significant because it provided the locals the basics of what to do in time of calamities like earthquake and tsunami. “My initial assessment is very good. As all of us witnessed, the local people followed the instructions on what to do and where to go as escape route,” Amilbahar said. Ramil Masukat, executive director of ARMM Humanitarian Emergency Response and Action Team (HEART), said two things are vital in a situation like this. “We should prepare more on the aspect of communication and coordination, especially in areas where mobile phone signal is absent,” he said. For Norhaiya, what is key is that the people now know “what to do, where to go.” She advised people not to panic but to keep calm so they can

Meanwhile, Office of Civil Defence XI, Regional DRRM headed by Regional Director Liza Rosales Mazo gave a Pre-Disaster Risk Assessment (PDRA) Orientation tothe IGaCoS DRRM Council and CDRRRM EMT on July 27 at the ABC Function Hall, Barangay Penaplata, Samal District. The activity aimed to update the Council on the importance of understanding PDRA to further enhance the DRR mechanism of the City andas a step ahead of a likely disaster. “Less casualties and less damages when an LGU is prepared, with PDRA we aim for a zero casualty”, RD Liza Mazo said. She said that by implementing PDRA, the concerned agencies, stakeholders and communities of the city will be more prepared and could readily bounced back in any calamities. City Mayor Aniano P. Antalanglaldly welcomed RD Liza Mazo and was pleased of her being back to OCD- Region XI. (MTA Samal Info.)


from page A1 He said that the members are the ones handling the clubs. Moreover, it is also a possibility that they will handle higher office in the future and it is important to know what are the basic tasks in performing such leadership duties. Resource speaker, Eagle Ferdinand A. Bernasor said that it is his first time to conduct a seminar-workshop for Fraternal Order of Eagles. Bernasor stated that mostly, if not all of the officers of the respective clubs, cannot conduct or make programs with regards to conducting meetings. “I want these participants to be future leaders of our fraternity... That’s why I want at the end of this workshop [that] if they will be already conducting general membership meeting or regional assembly if they are already in the regional office, they can learn how to conduct basic meeting of the proceedings of our fraternity,” he added. In the gathering, one of the tasks given to the members is the construction of Plans and Programs for Eagle Year 2016. They are divided in groups and each team should present their output after an hour of group discussion. PIEL Secretary Andy Paurom also commented that what members should remember is their responsibilities as leaders. “We conducted this seminar because as part of PIEL, we want them to learn more about our organization as Eagles and they will know how to govern or run a particular government... We want them to know what is leadership in Eagles.” Aside from the Leadership Seminar-Workshop, there are

Philippines through Office of Presidential Adviser for Peace Process (OPAPP) that intend to respond and strengthen peace building, as well as reconstruction and development on conflict-affected areas. It is being implemented through partnership with different government agencies. In terms of livelihood, it engaged with DSWD. Thus, PAMANA has become a special project under Sustainable Livelihood Program. In Region 10, there are about 122 barangays from 5 municipalities, all from Lanao del Norte that are recipient of these projects. PAMANA areas are selected and prioritized based on data provided by local government units and security sector. Summing up, these are emerging MNLF areas that need further development, areas affected by and vulnerable to armed conflicts as validated through assessments and consultations with the LGUs. Each barangay of municipalities of Pantar, Baloi, Munai, Sapad and SND are given P300,000 project fund for each tranch. The livelihood projects are divided into 3 tranches. First cycle of implementation has been implemented in the year 2013 and completed early on the following year. Second cycle was implemented on 2014 and where most of the projects were finished just earlier this year. The third tranch is expected to be implemented next month. These 3-c ycle projects amounted to P109,800,000. Other than this, each barangay will be given incentive of P50,000 at the end of this 3-year duration projects. SLP-PAMANA projects are community-based projects built through the lead of each barangay’s SLP Association who identifies livelihood projects that would likely solve the most pressing needs of their barangay comes to income-generation. These projects could be in Production or Consolidation Units mode. For production, projects might be manufacturing or processing facilities. Consolidation Unit, on the other hand, could be projects in form of acquisition and consolidation of goods from suppliers; selling, supplying and distributing goods, or transport facilities.

dent, said in an interview during a project sites tour held July 29-31 that it has been a big help to their community, especially in the production of rice. “Ito po yung pinili namin dahil ito ‘yung mkakatulog sa amin. Noong wala pa po ang handtractor, dalawang beses lang po kami makaka-harvest, ngayon po’ng meron na’ng hand tractor, tatlong beses na po. Mas mabilis na po ‘yung taniman,” she said. She also stated how SLPPAMANA has helped her and the community, and how it has cause big change. For this program required them to learn necessary processes such as social preparation, project identification, capacity building and project proposal preparation, and project review, they learned to value camaraderie and work as team. The community has learned to gather, organize a group and implement the project together with unity. “Noon po, kanya-kanyang buhay lang po kami. Nang dumating ang SLP-PAMANA, natutunan po namin kung ano dapat gawin para umunlad ang asosasyon namin.” She herself also justified how this program has change her view as a person. She said that being a 32-year old womanpresident of their association made her declare that “meron pa pala akong ikakahalaga bilang babae.” Though she finished 2 years from her course Midwifery from a college in Iligan, she has six kids to take care for that stopped her to pursue a higher opportunity from this course. Adam added that the program has strengthen community development, increased participation among women and acquired quality participation from fellow Maranaos. It has also offered holistic approach of minimizing conflicts and made them realize that development can happen if they worked together as community. The barangay Matampay has been one of the war-torn areas that experienced devastation last 2010 and even periods before that. It is also the former location of one of the three biggest MILF Camps. Their project for the second cycle is a unit of Solar Dryer that had been completed just last February. Whenever their cheque will be released on August, they are planning to purchase a vehicle to be used on hauling their produce. SLP-PAMANA Focal for Central Office Andrew Serrano also thanked the barangay and municipality for successful projects despite of challenges

they encountered along the implementation such as the acquisition of materials from distant places. He explained that PAMANA is a part of government’s goal of putting a permanent and just closure to internal armed conflicts in the country, and it still has so many places to reach. The 3-cycle SLPPAMANA projects has trained communities in implementing projects on their own and they are hoping that they will continue to do the same even sans PAMANA. Munai Municipal Mayor Muammar Jhon S. Maquiling expressed his gratefulness for the coming of SLP-PAMANA in his place. He proudly told the visitors, including the ones from DSWD-Central that Munai is a safe town and people are peace-loving. However, he also admitted that there are more areas of Munai that are in need of development. Thus, he hoped that OPAPP and DSWD would consider his town for future projects.
