Never Again! Never Forget!

Why does it matter?  Can't we move on? There is a thin line between moving forward and forgetting. The occurrence of collective amnesia did not happen only by mistake or overnight. Correctly remembering what happened during Martial Law is important, especially amidst ongoing conversations that attempt to revise history. While others have made attempts through social media platforms to cement the Martial Law's place in our cultural memory, we have a clear social responsibility to be accountable for our actions and be conscious of its impact on others and in our communities. Truths are learned to be remembered and not to be forgotten. There is nothing wrong with forgiving and moving forward, but what makes things hard to digest is when accountability is neglected. In that case, chances are, Filipinos will find it hard to value, defend, and promote our freedom. To be reminded to #NeverForget does not necessarily mean holding a grudge until our very last breath. It will

Partnerships help DA-assisted farmers weather health crisis

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, July 2 (PIA)--Banking on public-private partnership, at least 500 DA-assisted farmers in Miarayon, Talakag, Bukidnon rebounded after struggling with the COVID-19 setbacks.

The farmers who belong to an Indigenous Peoples (IP) community are now expanding their market reach, profitably supplying fresh vegetables produce to the neighboring regions.

“Because of the COVID-19 pandemic our farm products’ prices plunges so our sales drops. Thanks to unwavering support of the Department of Agriculture and our partnership with PITAC MPC, we were able sell our products in other region, for now in Butuan, but we have plan to penetrate Cebu, once our production can cope with the demand,” said Ryan Danio, president of Miarayon Highland Farmers Association.

The Philippine International Travel Assistance Center Multi-Purpose Cooperative (PITAC MPC) is a financing institution based in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon.

The cooperative provides agri financing support to Bukidnon farmers.

Through the Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Credit Policy Council's (DA-ACPC) Sure Covid-19 loan, the company ably supports the Miarayon farmers’ financing needs during the pandemic.

“Our engagement with the farmers associations in Talakag started last year, but we provided added support during this crisis. Right now we are helping them to sell their products in a new marketplace” Ricky R. Chamen, PITAC MPC special project manager remarked.

By partnering with PITAC MPC farmers in Talakag were able to sell 25 tons of carrots, cabbage, and potato at a decent price, earning them not less than P400,000 sales in a month.

The Miarayon Highland Farmers Association, Talaandig Farmers Agriculture Cooperative, Pagsabuwahan Ipalambo Sa Organisasyon and Talakag Potato Farmers Association form strategic alliances by consolidating their farm products for bulk selling to PITAC MPC.

With this scheme, the farmers are assured their products will be sold profitably. “Our aim is to help the farmers engage not only in agriculture production but also to diversify into other forms of business ventures suited to their place. We wanted the locals to benefit from the potential of their place” Chamen added.

Chamen disclosed PITAC MPC is presently helping Miarayon Highland Farmers Association to start their water refilling business.

He also shared the possibility of helping the farmers explore agri-tourism in Miarayon in the future. Vegetable farmers in Miarayon are recipients of several agricultural interventions from DA-10.

To boost their vegetable production the farmers are granted projects such as establishment of spring development irrigation system, provision of farm machineries and equipment, draft animals and high quality vegetable seeds.

The farmers are also technically assisted in the production and marketing of their products.

“Through DA-10 Kadiwa on Wheels the Miarayon farmers were able to sell their products directly to the consumers in Cagayan de Oro City amidst the COVID-19 crisis. Now we are glad to note that, despite the pandemic, they were able to expand their market, distributing their products to other regions,” DA-10 Regional Technical Director for Operations Carlota S. Madriaga accounted.

According to the director, Miarayon Highland Farmers Association is a model farmers group pioneering farm products consolidation in Northern Mindanao. The association is also one of only eight DA beneficiaries for the Sustainable Potato Program in the country. The program is undertaken in partnership with the Universal Robina Corp. (URC) of which, the Miarayon Highland Farmers Association emerged as the top potato producers.

While grateful of the agricultural assistance and opportunities accorded to them by DA, moving forward the farmers are hopeful of DA’s continued support.

“Given our situation right now, we hope we can be assisted in terms of road construction in some remote production areas in our place. Having a proper road will help us reduce the production costs. Also, we are looking forward to farming technology assistance from DA. This will be beneficial to keep us updated of modern farming methods,” Danio shared.

A model farmer in Miarayon, Danio considered farmer’s ingenuity and dedication key to thrive amid this pandemic. “We should not fret over the crisis. This will pass. The DA will always be around to guide and help us,” Danio said, assuring his fellows. (DA10/PIA10)

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.

Ginusto Niyo 'Yan!

'Di kami nagkamali, we already expected those things to happen... You're making fun of our opinions pero 'di niyo magets na para 'yun sa ikabubuti ng lahat. Now, why so sudden bigla kayong nagreklamo? eh diba ginusto niyo 'yan, honestly dito samin nagsasabing nagsisisi sila sa naboto nila, for me hindi na kasalanan ng mga politiko na naloko nila kayo dahil there are so many evidences na. Pero all of you still chose to be fooled and deceived by them. But it's too late na eh nakaupo na sila sa pwesto na hindi nila deserve. Pero ito na lang... Let our response be, GINUSTO NIYO 'YAN!
