Samar island town gets road funding from ARCP 2

By Ninfa B Quirante

Catbalogan, Samar (24 October) -- Daram, a Samar island town gets road funding from the Agrarian Reform Community Project Phase 2 (ARCP 2).

This was bared by Teresa Tijol, Information Officer of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Samar.

On October 22, Daram Mayor Lucia Astorga received the good news with her constituents.

Some seven thousand Daramnons will benefit from the road network.

Ms Nenette Abinguna, DAR Officer for Beneficiaries Development and Coordination Committee (BDCC) together with other DAR employees sailed to Daram to bring the good news and orient Daramnons as to their obligation in the project implementation.

The road project stretches in the three barangays of Mabini-Mayabay and San Roque; it is 3.6 kilometers with a funding of P 20.2 M.

Said project is a grant but if not maintained properly will transform into a loan which the LGU will pay.

"It is important to orient the beneficiaries, their roles in the development project," said Abinguna.

Meanwhile, Daram LGU gives a 60% equity or counterpart of the total project cost.

"The road project is just the beginning," said Abinguna.

"More development projects will reach Daram in no time, because we have observed how serious the LGU is," opines another DAR executive.

Daram ARCP project was launched in September 2008 in time for Daram's founding anniversary, from then on, Daram LGU personnel and DAR officials have worked seriously and closely to make the project a reality.

Asian Development Bank, the Philippine government, OPEC fund for International Development and Daram LGU co share the funding.

Others ARCs that stand to benefit from ARCP 2 are Villareal ARC, Calpinset (Calbiga-Pinabacdao Settlement), Pagsanghan Strategic ARC and Tarangnan (St. Francis ARC). (PIA-Samar) [top]
