Retooled Community Support Program launches in Agusan Sur Town

PROSPERIDAD, Agusan Del Sur - Prosperidad Local Government Unit (LGU) launches the Retooled Community Support Program (RCSP) to deliver basic services in the conflict-affected areas of Sitio Tibog, Sitio Ugnop, and Purok 7 of barangay Mabuhay, Prosperidad on September 2, 2020, benefitting 79 households.

Mayor Frederick Mark Plaza Mellana led the RCSP team along with the core teams, local peace and order and development council members.

The RCSP teams are composed of the Basic Services Delivery team which will serve as the bridge of the RCSP team to the national government, the Citizenship and Community Participation team which will strengthen barangay-based institutions and sectoral organizations to engage in participatory issue resolution, the Peace Law Enforcement and Development Support Team which will protect and secure RCSP team and beneficiaries on the conduct of the peace and development activities, the Local Development and Peace and Order Councils which will screen and prioritize the needed government interventions in the community and the RCSP core team that directly supports the local chief executive in the operationalization of the RCSP. 

Upon the identification of issues by the RCSP and the Community Support Team of the 8th Special Forces Company of the 3rd Special Forces ”Arrowhead” Battalion, basic services issues such as the rehabilitation of farm-to-market road from sitio Tibog to Purok 7, access to potable water in Sitio Ugnop were immediately addressed and resolved by the LGU and concerned agencies. Further, Serbisyo Caravan consisting of outreach programs, medical services, birth registration, free haircut, donation of food supplies were provided to 79 households.

“This is the first time that we focused our efforts and actually went to those far-flung communities na nangangailangan ng serbisyo ng gobyerno. Usually, dun lang sa mga sentro ng barangays but this time we also have to immerse there para malaman natin ang sitwasyon nila at pangangailangan,” Mayor Mellana, said.

“The RCSP is aimed at addressing the root causes of insurgency and we hope na mawala na ang armed conflict sa municipality of Prosperidad so we can fully achieve our potential in eco and agritourism. We may not have all the resources but we are doing our best na maramdaman ang good governance kahit sa pinakamalayong sitios,” Mayor Mellana added.

RCSP is one of the national government’s mechanisms in implementing the Whole-of-Nation Approach to peacefully End Local Communist Armed Conflict which was institutionalized by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s Executive Order No. 70.

Meanwhile, Prosperidad RCSP theme is USWAG-Prosperidad which means ‘Uban ta Sa kalambuan Walay puwas nga programang Agrikultura, industriya ng Turismo para sa Gobyernong local sa Prosperidad’ to drumbeat their campaign in promoting peace and development.
