LA TRINIDAD, Benguet, July 5 (PIA) — The municipalities of Bokod and Itogon will receive P7.5 million worth of community projects from SN Aboitiz Power (SNAP) in Benguet through its Community Social Responsibility (CSR). 

Benguet Governor Nestor B. Fongwan and Mike Hosillos, SNAP-Benguet vice president for corporate services, signed an agreement for the implementation of community projects in the towns of Bokod and Itogon, which host Ambuclao Dam and Binga Dam respectively. 

The projects include school and government building improvement projects for Barangay Tikey, in Bokod and the completion of the Marian multi-purpose bridge and construction of Binga Elementary school waterworks in Itogon. 

The indigenous peoples’ organizations of Tinongdan and Bokod also signed agreements with us for the release of our CSR funds for their respective projects, Hosillos said. 

The Shakilan ni Ikulos-Indigenous Peoples Organization of Bokod will receive funding for various projects, which include organic farming, reforestation, the construction of Heritage House, and the establishment of an alternative learning system-modular class, he explained. 

The Tinongan Indigenous Peoples Organization, meanwhile, will use their allocation for the improvement of various waterworks systems, the completion of the Livelihood Equipment Center and roadworks, Hosillos said. 

Barangay Ambuklao, which hosts the rehabilitated 100-megawatt (MW) Ambuklao Hydroelectric Power Plant, will receive funds for the construction of waterworks, flood control projects, and a new barangay hall. 

Hosillos expressed hope that these projects would be another step towards creating shared value among SNAP-Benguet’s host communities. 

Fongwan thanked SN Aboitiz Power for its continuing partnership with the provincial and local governments in developing local communities. (JDP/JBZ-PIA CAR)
