Brgy. Aposkahoy IPs to benefit from Bagsakan Center

CLAVERIA, Misamis Oriental (PIA)–To further capacitate Indigenous Peoples (IP) Communities and hinterland barangays in their economic development, the 58th Infantry “Dimalulupig” Battalion (58th IB) assisted in the inauguration and turnover ceremony of the newly constructed Bagsakan Center for the IP Community at Sitio Lantawon, Barangay Aposkahoy, Claveria, September 1.

The IP members of Mati, Manibay, Civoleg, and Langguyod (MAMACILA) will benefit from the 5 x 16 meters Bagsakan Center, an initiative lead by the partnership between the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)-10 and the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) known as Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS) Payapa at Masaganang Pamayanan (PAMANA).


Through the PAMANA framework, conflict-affected barangays are prioritized to receive funds and increase their access to basic social services as part of the national government’s campaign for peace and development in conflict-affected areas.

Nathalie Soldevilla, a representative from DSWD-10, urged the recipients to properly handle the Bagsakan Center as this will undoubtedly assist them in supporting their daily life.

A step forward for peace. Commanding Officer of 58IB Lt. Col Ricky Canatoy believes the project will empower the IPs as a community, allowing them to work together to sustain the livelihood program that has been granted to them and be a step forward in allowing progress and development. (58 IB)

The Bagsakan center will serve as the food basket for the Barangay and its neighboring barangays, and be an avenue for selling crops, fruits, and other items produced by the IP communities.

LtCol Ricky Canatoy, commanding officer of 58IB, believes that the project will empower them as a community, allowing them to work together to sustain the livelihood program that has been granted to them, and be a step forward in allowing progress and development, especially since their area was categorized as one belonging to “conflict-affected areas” in the province.
