The People’s Action Center (PAC) recently hosted the 1st Piglet Catching Challenge called “Tiliwem, Kukuam,” at the Cagayan Sports Complex on June 24, 2012. The activity was played among participants from different municipalities of the province, Provincial Government of Cagayan (PGC) employees, Bin-I-Ti Agtutubo (BTA), Out-of-School (OSY) youth and from the audience.
According to Cristina I. Antonio, who represented Criselda I. Antonio, PAC Head when Alvaro T. Antonio took his seat as Governor, it became his goal to provide business and employment opportunities to every Cagayano. He put up programs to decrease demands of unemployment and poverty to his constituents. “One of the programs of the Governor is the provision of livelihood programs to poor Cagayanos in the barrios such as animal raising, sari-sari store business, and others. Through this, recipients had the chance to improve their life and sustain their needs. This challenge is timely because the winners will not just benefit from it, it can also provide them opportunities for a better future,” Cristina Antonio said.
The ten winners who won the piglet challenge were, Rico Ricafrente of Ballesteros, Estanislao Soliva of Solana, Teresita Caronan of Amulung, Alice Sulyer of Gonzaga, Freddie Danga and Vergel Adap of PGC, Randy Singayan of BTA-Peñablanca, Ryan Morgado, BTA-Amulung, Jomar Addun, OSY of Tuguegarao City and Mark Anthony Corpuz, an audience from Maddela, Quirino.
