Knowledge Channel returns to Zamboanga Sibugay

MANILA, Philippines - The Knowledge Channel is back in Zamboanga Sibugay! This time connecting six more schools through a grant from Sen. Loren Legarda and the support of Gov. George Hofer and Rep. Dulce Ann Hofer.

At the turnover ceremony at Ipil Heights Elementary School last February 26, Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI) President and Executive Director Rina Lopez Bautista said that KCFI is not launching its partnership with Sen. Legarda or Zamboanga Sibugay, but rather, renewing old ties.

The Knowledge Channel has had a positive impact on the connected schools in Zamboanga Sibugay, helping to increase scores of students in schools with high utilization levels, and of this, Lopez Bautista said, “It also humbles us to realize that it is not only the children that we have affected, but also the communities where these schools are as well.”

Legarda addressed the school, saying that the quality of education in Sibugay has improved as a result of having the Knowledge Channel and adding, “That proves that our weapon against poverty and ignorance is knowledge in Science, Math, and English.” She went on to tell the students how lucky they are to have access to the Knowledge Channel, saying, “You are privileged that you will be able to watch quality programs that give not only entertainment, but knowledge as well.”

Economy of Zamboanga Sibugay Province, Philippines

The main economy is based on rice and corn milling, food processing, baking, rattan and wood furniture production. Additional businesses in concrete products, wax and candle factories, clothing, and other local industries are improving the new province's economic outlook.

Agriculture products include rice, vegetables, corn, root crops, coconuts, fruit trees, coffee, cacao, tobacco and rubber. Livestock and poultry productions are locally sustained and require additional investments.

Tungawan Mariculture Zone, Sibugay
Launched – March 03, 2007
Area – 500 Hectares
Mariculture farming in The Philippines
The local government is pushing for the extension of the fish port in Taytay Manobo in the municipality of Naga in order to expand its mariculture and fishing industries. The local economy is conducive to extensive mariculture, which is the farming of aquatic plants and animals in salt water. Thus, mariculture represents a subset of the larger field of aquaculture, which involves the farming of both fresh-water and marine organisms. The major categories of mariculture species are seaweeds, mollusks, crustaceans, and finfish.

As of early 2009, The Philippines has 40 Mariculture Parks in operation and out of the 11 in Mindanao, one is located in Tungawan, Province of Zamboanga Sibugay. Mariculture parks operate much like industrial estates on land, with investors setting up or renting fish cages to grow high-value marine species such as bangus, lapu-lapu, siganids, seaweeds and other high-value aquatic organisms. Mariculture parks are not only practical and economical but are also ecologically friendly. There is no need to cut a single mangrove tree in raising bangus, in a sea cage, and is also more economical because it would cost only about P150,000 to put up a sea cage while development cost for a hectare of fishpond would reach about P1 million, according to a recent Philippine Senate hearing.

Additional Senate data encourages that mariculture yields can reach as much as five tons in a 10x10x 5 meter-sea cage inside a mariculture park, which is the same as in a one-hectare fish pond. With production cost of P70.00-P75.00 per kilo, a fish farmer could easily earn some P90,000.00 per cropping per cage or a total of P 180,000.00 for two cropping periods per year. Additionally, to further increase earnings, a fish farmer can also grow danggit or samaral in sea cages in tandem with bangus under a system called aqua-polyculture. After one cropping with 1,680 pieces fingerlings, the danggit catch could reach an estimated 100 kilos, which could easily fetch an additional cash of P8,800.00.

Multi-sector group conducts fact-finding mission

by Bong Garcia


A MULTI-SECTOR group known as the Coalition for Peace Base on Justice (CPBJ) is conducting an independent fact-finding mission in the nearby provinces of Basilan and Zamboanga Sibugay.

The CPBJ, which is composed of loose coalition of human rights, peace advocates and other civil society organizations and was formed last November 9, sent Monday two fact-finding teams to Al-Barka, Basilan and Payao, Zamboanga Sibugay.

Former Bayan Muna representative Satur Ocampo said they will talk to the local government officials and the affected residents to look into the effect of the recent clashes, as well as the all-out justice directive of President Benigno Simeon Aquino III.

“Our point is from the people's side,” Ocampo said, citing the result of their fact-finding mission could serve as inputs to the concerned government agencies addressing the problems.

Bai Ali Indayla of Kawagib, which works for the advancement of Moro Human Rights, said they are concerned on the plight of some 20,000 people displaced because of the recent clashes in Al-Barka, Basilan and Payao, Zamboanga Sibugay.

Another member of the CPBJ, Jacquiline Ruiz of the Children's Rehabilitation Center, said they will also look into the plight of the women and children who were affected by the recent clashes.

Ruiz said they will determine the exact number of women and children affected by the recent clashes and determine what would be the most appropriate intervention they should undertake.

The CPBJ is expected to announce the results of its fact-finding mission Wednesday. (Bong Garcia)
