ALABEL, Sarangani (April 28, 2021) – Bagacay Barangay Captain Dennis Torres (extreme left) congratulates Girlie Talino as he hands over the certificate of completion during the graduation ceremony of the Kaalaman para sa Kapayapaan at Kaunlaran (3K) Project on April 26. Talino, 33, is a farmer and a mother of four. She only finished Grade 3 and was not able to pursue her education. But because of the 3K program, she was able to further learn how to read, write and count which are the most needed skills especially when trading farm products. She expressed gratitude for the implementation of the 3K program and for the people who were doing their duties of teaching them every week since June 2020. “Dako kaayo akong pasalamat sa tanang staff nga naghatod og ani nga klase nga programa sa amoa ilabi na kay Governor Solon kay tungod ani, di na mi mailang sa mga tao nga naay ineskwelahan,” Talino said. Now that she knows how to read, write, and do basic math, she said she can already assist her children in doing their learning modules, and can use her gained knowledge during election since she no longer need to ask for assistance in reading the name of the individuals in the ballot as she cast her vote. The 3K project is under Sulong Karunungan which is a flagship program of Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon. (Jake Narte-Joshua John S. Pantonial/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)

Govt officials attack Kinam with Serbisyo

MALAPATAN, Sarangani (April 25, 2021) – Mayor Salway Sumbo Jr. (right) and Deputy Speaker Congressman Rogelio “Ruel” Pacquiao (left) welcome Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon (center) during the Serbisyo Caravan para sa Sarangan at Barangay Kinam on April 21. As an ELCAC community, various medical, agricultural, livelihood, environmental, educational, and other basic social services were provided in Kinam during the caravan. Kinam is one of the barangays in the province to receive P20 million funding for the barangay projects and programs from the Local Government Support Fund-Support to Barangay Development Program (LGSF-SBDP) 2021 under the General Appropriations Act 2021 which will be implemented this year. According to Barangay Captain Ruben Sumbo, the priority project for the P20 million fund will be intended for the concreting of roads in the barangay. Barangay Kinam was once one of the farthest and most hard-to-reach barangays in Sarangani that required half a day of a bumpy ride with over 20 river crossings to reach the center of the community. Through the governor’s strong desire to provide access to the rural communities, the people of Kinam restored their hope and brought change into their lives. Having a closer road to reach the town proper was also one of the reasons why the former rebels turned to the government. Also present during the Serbisyo Caravan were Board Members Joseph Calanao, Arman Guili, Irish Louie Arnado-Beñola, Ephraim Galzote, Rheymar Dian and Corazon Grafilo. Dr. Grafilo conducted an eye check up to some residents of Kinam. Vice Mayor Jean Delos Santos and the rest of the municipal and barangay officials were also present during the activity.
