NVizcaya village benefits from mining project

QUEZON, Nueva Vizcaya (11 October) -- Villagers in barangay Runruno here have received initial package of projects and services from a mining firm designed to improve their community.

Ernie Mendoza, consultant of the MTL Philippines, Inc. said the firm is presently concerned in the provision of various services on health, employment, education and basic infrastructure for the villagers as part their social obligations.

The mining firm recently provided the village with a nurse on duty for seven days a week and a doctor on duty twice a week including medicines for accommodation of patients needing consultation and cure.

Mendoza said the firm has also arranged a project with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority(TESDA) for the training of villagers on bakery operations, culinary arts and other skills in preparation for their livelihood projects.

He added that a tree project called Tree for Life program is also being introduced in the village to help protect and develop the village's environment.

According to Mendoza, the other forms of assistance given by the company are the shouldering of the salaries of six teachers in the village, employment of ten villagers for their road maintenance project, donation of a dump truck.

He said the mining firm's current exploration activities employed 137 villagers which represent 90 percent of its labor force.

The firm has also sponsored the training of other villagers on special skills in preparation for better and higher paying jobs within the company. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
