Roy D. Barte, president of the City Wide Urban Poor Council of Zamboanga City and president-mobilizer of the Zamboanga Peninsula Urban Poor Alliance, Inc.(ZAMPEN) conducted last Sunday a one-day orientation seminar for some 400  members/ beneficiaries of the Boalan Homeowners Association. It was held at the Red Cross Hall.

Mr. Barte with other officers of the City Wide Urban Poor Council of Zamboanga City attended the 1st Mindanao Urban Poor Summit Davao City last September 6. It was sponsored by the Presidential Commission for Urban Poor.

Barte believes that there is a need for him to conduct an orientation seminar to CMP beneficiaries for them to gain knowledge on what is the Community Mortgage Program all about.

The Community Mortgage Program of the national government is aimed  at addressing the problem of homelessness in the country.

This program is intended solely for the poor sector of the society, for them to own a piece of lot which they can call their own and for them to build their houses.

The members were satisfied with the orientation conducted by Mr. Barte and his group and they went home happy.

Barte was assisted by his working staff  — Mr. Vicente M. Candido, Mrs. Cesenia B. Rimando, Mr. Felimon Rimando, Mr. Romy B. Ulla, Mrs. Yvone B. Porras, Mrs. Marilyn B. Juaton, Mrs. Esther Ornopia, Mr. Arvy 0. Jamin, Ms. Aime G. Baltazar, and Mr. Leve B. Lumampao.
