KKI visits Barangay Calarian and turns-over DRRM Logistical Support
Katilingban Sa Kalambuan turned-over hand-held radios and projectors to Barangay Calarian last August 3, 2017. This logistical support is under its Participatory Governance advocacy.
These equipment will be used in implementing projects that would benefit the barangay’s constituents. The DRRM logistical support proposal was identified by the sectors and officials through a series of learning sessions and consultations. Barangay Calarian is a partner barangay of the Katilingban sa Kalambuan in a project on participatory governance. Katilingban is a member of the Zamboanga Basilan Integrated Development Alliance. Other members include Peace Advocates Zamboanga (PAZ), Reach Out to Others Foundation (ROOF) and the Nagdilaab Foundation Inc. (NFI).
After the turn-over, Barangay Chair, El King K. Omaga, explains to KKI, how their barangay data base / management information system works. The system, established in part through a computer unit provided as logistical support by the Peace Advocates Zamboanga (PAZ) in 2014, continues to serve the needs of Calarian residents.
“This is enhanced service delivery. Barangay clearance can be released in seconds; barangay IDs in 2.5 minutes.”, Brgy. Omaga emphasized. (Katilingban sa Kalambuan Org Official Facebook Page)
