Farmers in Trinidad Bohol Receive Gifts

The gifts did come with ribbons, but there was no need for wrappers.

Unwrapped as the gifts were, farmers were still evidently thrilled upon receiving the certificate of recognition signifying their families are now beneficiaries of a carabao as pass-on-gift to help them in their farm tasks.
The carabao, which the family would have to care while using it to till their small patches of farm is part of the many poverty alleviation schemes Bohol adopted to actively empower and engage farmers to work out of poverty.
The beneficiary, and at least nine other farmers from Trinidad town went home that day towing a carabao, one that they have dreamt of to increase agricultural productivity and household incomes.
The carabao pass-on-gift is a unique roll-over animal dispersal project of the Provincial Government,  Heifer Project International, LIFFE and the a US based confederation of Boholanos managed by the Office of the Provincial Veterinarian, explains Daisy Evasco.
At a turn-over rites in time for the Civic Action in Hinlayagan Ilaud, Trinidad town last March 17, carabao recipient families eagerly anticipated getting the gift from earlier dispersal beneficiaries who, by agreement were to pass on calves from their own gifts years back.
Provincial Veterianrain Dr. Stella Marie Lapiz revealed that according to their records, the animal dispersal project in Trinidad alone is already worth P1.75 million, way too much since the dispersal expansion area was adopted in 2004.
“One thing about this project is that farmer families are getting responsible,” Dr. Lapiz added as she reiterated that a beneficiary has to be a member of a famer group, one whose members work closely with each other to help monitor and look up to the dispersed livestock’s condition.
In Trinidad that day, ten farmer beneficiaries: Francisco Loreto, Felix Orevillo of KAMMTAN in Tagum Norte, Restituto Baay, Ursenio Cornesio and Francisco Bayonas of NIHI Hinlayagan Ilaya walked home with their new dispersal livestock.
Also towing calves already capable of plowing are Zenaida Mejorada, Eutiquia Barbarona of TIMGAS San Isidro, Diosdada Caparoso, Mario Austria of San Vicente and Josefina Otara of LAVTRIM –La Victoria. (PIA-Bohol)
