IPs of Brookes Point to get school building

Governor Jose Chavez Alvarez and Mayor Feliciano sign a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the indigenous communities

The provincial government is set to build a P3.7 million school building in town of Brooke’s Point primarily intended to provide educational opportunities especially for indigenous communities.

Brooke’s Point Mayor Mary Jean Feliciano said the school building aims to uplift the  overall living condition in the southern municipality by providing people, especially the IPs, access to education.

She also noted that nearly half of their population are indigenous people of IO whereas, almost 50% of the population of town is composed of the IPs.

She said that in order to alleviate the poverty in the province they should focus on the community that commonly identified having lack of education.

“Na-identify namin na kaya maraming illiterate dito ay dahil malayo ang mga bahay nila sa school, kapag walang baon ‘yong bata, walang pagkain, hindi na papasok kaya karamihan sa kanila mabilis papaniwalain,” Feliciano said.

Feliciano said they have already built school buildings in Sitio Tatandayan,  Tula-tula, Bayog and one in Barangay Saraza where all the students are IPs.

The local government of Brooke’s Point is tasked for the implementation of the school building in the Sitios of Barangays Aman and Mainit.

She added that they wanted to start the construction this year to use immediately and it is only combination of concrete and light materials.

“Mabibigyan natin sila ng option kasi sila ayaw nila umalis sa bundok, kaya itong mga schools ay doon na natin inilagay. Kung makakapag-aral sila [at] makapagtapos, hindi na sila sa bundok [dahil] ang hirap ng kalagayan nila doon,” she said.

It will also help develop the education system in the province and will have a good impact to the socio-oconomic development.

Feliciano added that they are able to empower and provide alternative source of income in the near future through education.

“Hindi natin binabago ang kultura nila, kundi tinutulungan natin sila na itaas ang kanilang pamumuhay at para magamot ang kahirapan dapat magsimula ‘yon doon sa edukasyon,” Feliciano told Palawan News.

Governor Jose Chavez Alvarez and Mayor Feliciano signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on October 10.

The fund of the project is donated by Liwayway Holdings Co. Ltd represented by Ambassador Carlos Chan.
