In line with developing more areas for irrigation, another solar-powered pump irrigation project, the Bitaogan River- Maputi Small Irrigation Project (SIP), is now in its implementation stage under the Davao Oriental IMO.

The project has a potential service area of 60 hectares which will benefit 48 farmers mostly devoted to rice and some will venture into diversified cropping.

THE SPIRIT OF GIVING CONTINUES

 

The Davao City Local Government Unit issued EO 31 on May 24, 2021 which restricts government activities including holding of community pantries. The NIAEASP quickly responded, following the EO's effectivity on May 26, 2021, by turning over to the Barangay LGU the goods that were gathered for the community pantry, thus the Office of the Punong Barangay would distribute the packs house to house.

The community pantry was originally plotted for 5 days from May 24 to 28, 2021, where each NIA XI Region Chapters would sponsor a day based on the following schedule:

Residents picked from various choices of daily staples such as rice, eggs, canned goods, noodles; and fresh vegetables such as okra, string beans, karlang, squash, sayote, mongo, among others. Pre-packed snacks were also provided for those who came.
