Kinaiyahan Housing New Community Leaders and Developments

The Kinaiyahan Housing is the 4th Housing Community of Katilingban Sa Kalambuan Inc. (KKI), a ZABIDA member-organization. It is also the Housing Project under the 2nd Convenio Project supported by the Spanish Cooperation for International Development Agency (AECID) and Manos Unidas. Last December of 2017, 80 household beneficiaries received the keys to their respective units. 

On April 8 of this year, an eelection of officers for the new community took place in Barangay Sinunuc, Zamboanga City. The new set of officers from community President down to PIO are coming from the different associations of K4. The election of officers was supervised by KKI project staff and assisted by ZABIDA housing staff.

On the other hand, the site development continues as heavy equipment are working double time in clearing the major and minor roads within the housing construction site for easy, convenient and passable roads for the beneficiaries and visitors of Kinaiyahan Eco-Village. Filling materials are being transported away from the construction site to loosen areas that were used as temporary stockpile area for filing materials (recreation area of K4) and other areas where construction is still on-going.

With the rainy season coming up, the developers are continually constructing the drainage system to ease the flow of rainy water within the community. As well as, the slope protection construction in the village is on-going wherein the areas identified as critical areas are immediately mitigated and addressed to safely secure of the community in terms of soil erosion and possible landslides.
