DPWH completes new IP centers in Bukidnon

MALAYBALAY CITY, Mar. 4 (PIA)--The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) recently completed two multi-purpose buildings that now serve indigenous peoples (IPs) in the province of Bukidnon.

In a report to Secretary Mark A. Villar, DPWH Region 10 Director Zenaida Tan said the buildings located in the municipalities of Impasugong and Kitaotao can now be used as a venue for learning, meetings, and activities, as well as temporary shelter for transients.

The building structures are built with an open hall for gatherings, restrooms, a lodging area with rooms, and a balcony. It is also complete with plumbing and electrical works for overall functionality.

"Most of the indigenous people live in the highlands of Bukidnon so whenever they visit the town proper, the building is available to provide a temporary place which is comfortable to stay,” Villar said.

The Secretary added that the structures serve as a concrete expression of the Department’s support to preserve the culture and heritage of the indigenous people in Bukidnon. (DPWH-10/PIA Bukidnon)
