Last Friday, August 29th, the Rizal Gamefowl Breeders Association and NFGB Foundation turned over their 2-classroom building project to the officials of Inuman Elementary School in Brgy. Inarawan, Antipolo City. The event was well-attended with no less than former Rizal Governor Casimiro “Ito” Ynares as guest of honor, together with Mrs. Josefina Gatlabayan, Chairman of the Education Committee of Antipolo City. Local DepEd officials, parents and barangay organizations also witnessed the turn-over ceremony with much enthusiasm.
Each month beginning with this issue, we will feature one member association so that our readers will get to know them better as we focus on their programs and projects.
For this month, we are featuring our member-association from the South – the Bicol Gamefowl Breeders Association, popularly known as BIGBA.
Established in 15 August 2002, BIGBA has been an active member of the National Federation of Gamefowl Breeders since 2003. Presently, they have a total membership of 213. For 2014, they banded 54 farms or a total of 2,045 cockerels locally and 11,813 for Bakbakan. From their entries in last year’s Bakbakan, they got a total of 32 3-pointers, two 7-pointers, and 18 entries got 8-9.5 points. And for this year’s Bullang-Bullang, they had a total of 32 qualifiers from 2-5.5 points.
The Bicol Gamefowl Breeders Association (BIGBA), an affiliate of the National Federation of Gamefowl Breeders, Inc. (NFGB), has been aggressively promoting the sport of cockfighting and the breeding industry in the Bicol Region. Aside from these, BIGBA, led by its President Vice Governor Harold O. Imperial, advocates social responsibility among its members through its health and education programs aimed to alleviate the plight of the Albayanos. Last year, medicines were distributed to chosen district hospitals in the region. This year, BIGBA opted to donate computer sets to six schools in the region, namely: Masbate South Elementary School, San Isidro Village Elementary School (Virac, Catanduanes), Oas Polytechnic High School (Albay), Libon Community College (Albay), San Jose Community College (Malilipot, Albay) and Kinale Elementary School (Polangui, Albay). The project is a response to the call for information technology facilities advancement in the elementary and secondary educational institutions in the Bicol Region. This is in cognizance to the increasing necessity for provision and improvement of I.T. amenities within the heart of the schools, to further develop the expertise, proficiency, and competency of our educators and learners as well.
