Through Breaking Barriers for Children (BBC) project, Bohol ties up with Kapisanan nga mga May Kapansanan sa Pilipinas Inc. (KAMPI) for the organization to assist Bohol in the need for rehabilitation and non formal education training for CWDs.

Representative Adam Jala signed the MOA ahead before the ceremonies, BBC said.

In his message, Chatto said it is a great opportunity for Bohol to pool resources with private sectors and put up a center that would soon be a focal center for rehabilitation of special children in Tagbilaran and neighboring towns.

Over this, he lauded BBC and the provincial government for jointly agreeing on the project even as he assured that he personally supports the project.

Meanwhile, Board Member Lopez, speaking for the governor, said Bohol is committed with the MOA conditions more importantly with the infrastructure as he assures the sustainability of the project.

The MOA also stipulates that KAMPI would train parents of CWDs as well as personnel from other sectors interested in pursuing the program.

In exchange of the funds assured by Bohol representatives, BBC dispenses free comprehensive rehabilitation services to poor CWDs, supports CWDs to be integrated into the formal schools, trains parents, day care workers and barangay health workers and persons with disabilities for them to help sustain the project. - Rey Anthony Chiu - PIA

Panglao Bohol International Airport Update

The Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) has endorsed Gov. Erico Aumentado's request to frontload the 2010 budget for the Panglao Bohol International Airport to 2009.
  In a letter to Budget and Management Secretary Rolando Andaya, DOTC Secretary Leandro Mendoza favorably endorsed Aumentado's request seeking the frontloading, citing among other reasons, that 2010 is an election year.
