Albayano students get financial aid from Ako Bicol
Thousands of Albayano youth have benefited from Ako Bicol’s education assistance program under the Local Government Support Fund.
“Labis ang pasasalamat ng libu-libong kabataang Albayano sa Tulong sa Edukasyon na inisyatibo nina Ako Bicol Congressman Elizaldy S. Co at Congressman Alfredo A. Garbin Jr. para sa probinsya ng Albay,” said the party-list.
The payout of the assistance program was held last Oct. 15 at the Albay Astrodome in Legazpi City.
Officials of the Ako Bicol Regional Headquarters spearheaded the distribution of the Educational Assistance under the Local Government Support Fund.
“Naging posible ang aktibidad sa pagkikipagtulungan ng Ako Bicol sa pamunuan nina Governor Al Francis C. Bichara, Vice Governor Edcel Grex Lagman at ng lahat ng volunteers na nagkakaisa sa layuning matulungan ang mga Albayano na magkapagtapos ng kanilang pag-aaral,” said the partylist.
Meanwhile, Ako Bicol likewise provided sports equipment to a barangay in Legazpi City.
“In show of it’s support for the sports and recreational needs of the youth, Ako Bicol formally turned over two sets of basketball rings and backboards to Kgd. Jomar Reojano along with the residents of Barangay 19, Cabangan, Legazpi City last October 14, 2019 at the Ako Bicol Regional Headquarters in Legazpi City,” the partylist said.
“Ako Bicol believes that sports and recreation will help decrease the culture of bullying, hazing, and substance abuse in schools and indigent communities,” it added.
