Remote sitio in Talakag, Bukidnon launches SBDP projects

BUKIDNON (PIA)–After completing the needed documentary requirements to proceed to the next phase of the implementation of the program and with the availability of the funds, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG)-10 along with the Local Government of Talakag organized the ceremonial groundbreaking of the priority projects, September 2.

“After the longest time, our prayers have been heard,” said Christian Dave Talian, a member of the Talaandig Tribe in Sitio Kaulayanan, Barangay Lirongan, Talakag, Bukidnon. 

He added that the government and their assistance through the Support to Barangay Development Program (SBDP) have finally reached their very remote sitio.

The said activity was the first groundbreaking ceremony conducted for Region 10.
