Excitement enlivened the morning of March 17, 2008. Tani Ramirez couldn't contain her happiness as she watched her daughter rehearse for the graduation march. She shared her anticipation with other parents and visitors who were also awaiting for the ceremonies to begin.
“I am very happy today as this momentous occasion signals the beginning of a brighter future for our community,” Tani said.
Bantay Bigas also pressed for adequate subsidies and support services for farmers. They further recommended that the government allocate adequate funds for agriculture and restore the P8 billion to P15 billion subsidy of the NFA.
Irrigation facilities should also be set up right away. In order to increase rice production, rice-processing facilities, rice dryers and other post harvest facilities should also be set up.
