Agriculture Secretary William Dar awarded to Mayor Gabino Ganggangan of Sadanga, Mt. Province a total of P6,863,190 worth of projects under the Special Area for Agricultural Development (SAAD) on June 19, 2020.

The interventions, which form part of the program’s effort to increase food production through the establishment of community enterprises, seek to aid the municipality in its fight against domestic communist terrorism.

Last year, SAAD approved and funded a proposal from the office of Mayor Ganggangan for an integrated farming project that included livestock and poultry raising with legume production.

According to Secretary Dar, to win the battle against armed conflict, the government must provide socio-economic interventions and make livelihood sustainable in rural communities. (Photos by Alan Jacalan, DA-AFID)
