Davao De Oro recognizes heroism among volunteers in the “Bayanihan Sa Paaralan 2019”
Davao De Oro— Davao De Oro Province celebrates “Volunteer’s Holiday” on December 13, 2019 at the Magnaga Beach Resort, Pantukan, Davao De Oro. With more or less 1,200 volunteers, it was a fun and memorable day as the provincial government spearheaded a day of thanksgiving for their selfless commitment as they give their time and effort to help those children have better quality of education through the provision of a classroom building.
This follows with the success of the Bayanihan sa Paaralan 2019 on five different sites: Danawan in Brgy. Manurigao, New Bataan, Side-4 in Brgy. Mangayon, Compostela; Sitio Sapang-lubog in Pantukan; Sitio-Bongloy in Pagsabangan and Panansalan in Compostela. Not only a 1 unit, 2 classroom buildings were built but also a teachers’ cottage, Kusina ng Kalinga (kitchen) and a Gulayan sa Paaralan (vegetable garden) were provided during the week-long build.
“Ni-volunteer gyud mi kay ang tumong ug tinguha nga ang among mga anak maka dawat gyud ug saktong edukasyon. Nangunay gyud mi ug lihok ug nagpasalamat pod mi sa uban ng taga LGU ug lungsod nga nagvolunteer ug nitabang sa amuang dapit.” said Margonio Jacinto, the purok-chairman who donated the space in Panansalan where classrooms and teacher’s cottage were built.
“No wonder sa tanan natung kalisod, challenges sa kinabuhi, dili lang sa atung sarili kung dili sa atung kumunidad maskin unsa ka bug-at nga mga problema, ang mga taga Davao De Oro makalampos ug makabarog gyud tungod kana sa paggawas sa kultura sa bayanihan sa atung mga sarili.” said Governor Jayvee Tyron Uy.
The provincial government of Davao De Oro initiated the celebration for all volunteers who served as “living heroes” paving the way to rack up an aspiration. Each team received a cash prize worth Php 30, 000 from the provincial government as a reward for a job well done.
“We will not stop nga maghimo ug proyekto ug programa pinaagi sa Bayanihan. Through the Bayanihan, we can do everything. Kahit gaano kahirap, kaya nating abutin basta’t nagkakaisa tayo” said Senior Board Member Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy, who has since been look up to as the father of the Bayanihan in the province. He was the one who steered “bayanihan” during his stint as the governor in the later Compostela Valley. (Jasteen Abella, ID Davao DE Oro)
