TUDELA, Misamis Occidental (PIA)–The Ozamiz Confession Classified together with the personnel of Philippine Army, Philippine National Police (PNP), AKRHO Ozamiz City Chapter and APO Ozamiz City Chapter launched the outreach program and community library in Sitio Tonggo, Barangay Namut, Tudela, June 20.
The launching of community library aims to provide the citizens, especially the children/students an access to educational materials, which would at least help the students in their studies. On top of that, parents would be able to lessen their expenses for the studies of their children in terms of fee on internet connection.
Due to the existing threats of COVID-19, face-to-face class is still prohibited and the students rely only on gadgets with internet connection for their virtual class.
Unfortunately, some parents cannot afford to buy decent gadgets and the internet connection on the said Sitio is very weak which is why the education of the children is being compromised.
“Nagpasalamat mi sa Ozamiz Confession Classified sa dakong tabang nga gihatag ug sa pagturn-over sa community library. Dako kaayong tabang alang sa mga kabataan ilabina sa mga lumad ang maong community library. Dako usab ang pasalamat namo sa 10IB sa pagpanguna sa ilang Battalion Commander LTC Ray Tiongson nga napili among barangay nga gitukuran ug library,” said Barangay Captain Rogelio Montac.
(We are thankful to Ozamiz Confession Classified for the great help and for turning over the community library. The community library is a great help for children, especially the natives. We are also very grateful to 10IB Battalion Commander LTC Ray Tiongson who has chosen our barangay to build a library)
The Philippine Army together with the different agencies of the government and other stakeholders will continue to support the endeavors of the Department of Education (DepEd) in delivering good and quality education to every Filipino Youth.
The said Sitio is situated near the mountain range of Mt Malindang, which is kilometers far away from Tudela town. (10th IB/PIA Misamis Occidental)
