  • April 20, 2017

MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur, April 20 --The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in the province of Lanao del Sur turned-over three completed subprojects to the Local Government Unit of Taraka  on April 17, under the DAR Asian Development Bank – Agrarian Reform Community Project (ARCP) Phase II.

The projects consisted of concreting of the Buadi Diamangga-Buadi Ongcalo Farm-to-Market Road, and construction of Multi-Purpose Building at Barangay Buadi Amunud and  Barangay Buadi Sundig.

The DAR ARCP aims to uplift the livelihood of the Agrarian Reform Partners by increasing their productivity and consequently their income.

Mayor Nashiba Areefa G. Sumagayan of Taraka said the projects were already completed early last year but was turned-over only this year due to conflict of schedules of both the LGU of Taraka and DAR Lanao del Sur. 

She also expressed gratitude to the department for the projects. “Rest assured that the two multi-purpose centers will be beneficial to the local farmers as they can use it for livelihood trainings and programs or evacuation centers when the need arise and any other functions,” she said.

Meanwhile DAR-ARMM Secretary Amihilda J. Sangcopan,  along with Sampaco A. Mamainte, DAR – ARMM Assistant Regional Secretary and Engr. Mesug P. Unda, Lanao del Sur Provincial Project Manager, underscored the collaboration of agrarian partners and stakeholders in helping the local farmers.

“Our commendation to the LGU of Taraka for its support as we are one and united in forwarding developments in Taraka and entire Lanao del Sur,” said Secretary Sangcopan. (Saliha P. Lalanto, DAR-Lanao del Sur / PIA-10)
