4Ps Beneficiary sa Apayao, binigyan ng biik

Hindi maikukubli sa likod ng facemask ang galak ni Manang Marietta mula sa Brgy. Laco, Kabugao, Apayao nang makatanggap siya ng biik mula kay SLP PDO Roma Joy Olivar.

Ang nasabing biik ay donasyon ni Roma at ng kanyang pamilya para sa pamilya ni Manang Marietta na kabilang sa Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program.

Nag-ambag ambag sila Roma at ang kanyang pamilya ng malaman na hindi nabili ni Manang Marietta ang hiling na biik ng kanyang anak na PWD.

Ang pagkadismaya at lungkot ay napalitan ng abot langit na pasasalamat dahil sa mabuting kalooban ni Roma at ng kanyang pamilya.

Kudos kay Roma Joy Olivar at sa kanyang pamilya!

Cordillera-  The municipality of Mankayan, Benguet and Luna, Apayao  were chosen by the Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT) as the rural impact housing hub in the Cordillera region.

The two chosen municipalities  will benefit from the DICT's program to improve the internet connectivity that encourage the  emergence of technology-based entrepreneurs and internet-based businesses as well as the improved transactions of the local government. 

The purpose of this program is to help individuals earn a decent income and improve the living conditions of families most especially those from the remote villages of the municipality.

"We will surely take advantage of this opportunity being provided by the DICT so that we will be able to lobby for the improved connectivity in the municipality which will be beneficial to all our constituents even those from the remote villages," the mayor of Mankayan, Frenzel Ayong said.

A required training center  will be established by the local government providing at least 25 computers and other  needed facilities.  Likewise, the DICT  is incharged of sending  competent trainers to help  the trainees who are interested in online entrepreneurship.

The honorable mayor of Mankayan, who just attended the DICT workshop in Clark, Pampanga  said that the training will prioritize the locals with disabilities, single parents and other marginalized groups although it will be open on a first come, first serve basis.

Ayong affirmed that appropriate screening will be done by the concerned offices of the municipal government so that appropriate guidance and training will be given to those who seriously want to commit in building and sustaining an online business or online jobs. 

He also mentioned that the municipality of Mankayan will work closely with the Lepanto Consolidated Mining Company and the Far Southeast Goldfields Resources Inc. in the implementation of this program.  

These mining companies  will be sharing their resources on their social development and management project. The local government can greatly benefit from these companies' sustainable implementation of the noble project that aims in providing guaranteed livelihood  to local residents who are interested to work at home.

Moreover, Ayong imposed that the DICT  will do its part in coordinating with telecommunication companies to improve their internet signals so that online entrepreneurs can do their online jobs successfully and efficiently.

The Ibaloi or Nabaloi is an indigenous ethnic group found in the northern Philippines. The Ibalois occupy the southeastern two-thirds of Benguet, particularly the municipalities of Kabayan, Bokod, Sablan, Tublay, La Trinidad, Tuba and Itogon, and the southern portions of Kapangan and Atok (CSG 2003).

Called Ipaway by the Kalanguyas, the name is derived from "those who live in the grasslands," with 'paway' as the Kalanguya term for grassland.

In Ibaloi mythology, this group's origin is traced back to a couple in Mt. Pulog who survived the great flood that Kabunian sent to punish the wicked people. This couple bore many children who intermarried, multiplied and descended to the fertile valleys of Benguet, including Tinek, to become the ancestors of the present-day Ibalois.

On August 1908, the Worcester policy was establishedby the government of Philippines, to organize perceived ethnic groupings and habitats under one province, the Mountain Province, into seven sub-provinces: Amburayan, Apayao, Benguet, Bontoc, Ifugao, Kalinga, and Lepanto.

The aim of this policy was to separate the mountain people from the lowlanders (Resurreccion 1999). This is to give a backgrounder as to the concepts of Igorot, meaning "of the mountains" (Scott 1992), Ibaloi, Kalanguya and Kankana-ey, as identifiers ascribed by others.

There are three migration routes of the Ibalois as proposed by Bagamaspad and Pawid (1985). From the Lingayen and Ilocos coasts, the early Ibalois moved to the Southern Cordillera Range through the tributaries of Aringay and Galiano rivers to Chuyo (Bakakeng) and Tonglo (Tili) in Tuba; the tributaries of the Amburayan River to Darew (Gaswiling) and Palaypay (Pungayan) in Kapangan; and third, the Agno River to Imbose (Pacso) in Kabayan and Amlimay in Buguias. It has also been proposed that by 1600 A.D., people started moving to the valley settlements along the Agno River from their settlements around the Mount Pulog area (particularly Tinoc, Hungudan).

Regarding the tracing of lineage, kinship is reckoned bilaterally, that is, from both parents. This makes extended households commonplace in Ibaloi societies. While rich (baknang) households are usually composed of extended families averaging at four to five, poor (abiteg) households are nuclear with the husband, wife and offspring.

Traditional Ibalois engage in wet-rice agriculture, swidden farming, mining, hunting and fishing. The 'baknang' (rich) has people working under him such as the pastol who takes care of domesticated animals and assists in the preparation of rituals like the cañao; the silbi who takes care in tilling the land; and the bagaen, a non-Ibaloi slave who does other tasks as required.
