Cagayan de Oro City – Green builder Italpinas Development Corporation recently partnered to support the Executive Order 70, “Whole of the Nation Approach” and in accordance with the “Development Support and Security Plan: Kapayapaan” of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, together with the Philippine Air Force’s Tactical Operations Group-10 (PAF TOG-10) in the inauguration ceremony of the tribal hall or “tulugan” for the Higaonon Indigenous People (IP) in the upland village of Bayanga Lumbia, Cagayan de Oro.
The tribal hall of the Higaonon Indigenous People stands overlooking the Higaonon community in the hinterland barangay of Bayanga, Cagayan de Oro City. The Philippine Air Force’s Technical Operations Group-10 led the construction of the hall as a way of making government services more accessible to tribal communities in the area.
Italpinas has been a consistent ally with PAF TOG-10 in building a better community in Cagayan de Oro.
Gisselle L. Mantilla, IDC’s HR & Admin Manager, said that the company started its corporate social responsibility projects by helping the IP communities, and the construction of the tribal hall in Pigsag-an last December 2019.
“We see the IP community as a significant part of our development. We should continue to support activities which focus on community unity and improvement as much as we can. We applaud the dedication of PAF TOG-10 in its efforts to serve and support various communities,” she said
As a sustainable developer, IDC invites everyone to come and take part and stand up and make a positive impact on our environment and on the community. Together, we can be a catalyst for a better community. With commitment, we can make a difference.” said Frances Mae R. Galvez, IDC Brand Manager.
IDC has been investing in alternative locations where nature and the environment has been thoroughly preserved and optimized. Primavera City and Primavera Residences are both located in a master-planned community in uptown Cagayan de Oro, and has been effectively leading in promoting green advocacies in Cagayan de Oro.
