District 1 Representative Beng Climaco launched her second caravan February 3 and 4 in line with her intensified security, health and education (SHE) initiatives through outreach missions.

Some 400 families benefited from the different services provided by the congresswoman, who is also the Deputy Speaker for Mindanao, in barangays Baluno, Maasin, Malagutay and Calarian.

The services included medical and dental, livelihood training courtesy of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and security training for barangay tanods and members of the Barangay Intelligence Network (BIN) courtesy of the Military Intelligence group (MIG-9).

The lady solon kicked off her SHE initiatives through the caravan January 28-29 in barangays  San Jose Cawa-cawa, Sto. Niño, Sta. Maria and Pasonanca with also over 400 families benefitting from the outreach package.

Like in the first caravan, Cong. Climaco  personally  led the outreach activities in the four barangays where she also consulted with the barangay officials regarding projects they wish to be included in the priority list for 2011.

Barangay residents find the caravan laudable and commendable stressing that it makes government services more accessible.

The project is being undertaken in coordination with the Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) which took charge of the training on commercial cooking for mothers and other interested folks; the barangay officials and nursing students from the Ateneo de Zamboanga, Western Mindanao State University and Pilar College.

The caravan will be held every week until the month of March or until all the barangays in district I shall have been covered. — Rham Joseph Cabasag
