Youth Leaders from the Municipality of Nunungan and Magsaysay are very thankful for the two-day field trip officially dubbed as the Lakbay-Aral Program that took place last Sept. 22-23, 2017. This program was initiated by the 15th Infantry “Molave Warriors” Battalion led by Lt. Col. Ericson V. Rosana in partnership with the Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte through the Population Office in line with the Youth for Development (Y4D) program of the Province. The youth leaders were given accommodation for free at the Mindanao Civic Center Sports Complex. Their first destination of this program is a visit to Governor Arsenio A. Quibranza Provincial Government Center then to Iligan City’s Maria Christina Hydroelectric Power Plant.
These Youth leaders are a product of Kalinga sa Bayan, it is a program of the 15th Infantry Battalion where they train young adults to become responsive, responsible, useful, and productive citizens to be able to contribute in the development of the community as agents of change.
This Lakbay Aral Program aims to supplement these youth leader’s knowledge through exposure visit or experiential learning, on the first day of the activity they began with an orientation at the Macapagal Training Center discussing about the Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte’s front line services and what it can offer then they went sight-seeing at Bacolod’s Eco-Park Fort Almonte and its two beautiful waterfalls the Biak na Bato falls and the Pagayawan Falls.
On its second day the youth leaders travelled to Iligan City to see the majestic Maria Cristina Falls and were briefly lectured on the functions of the Hydroelectric Power Plant. Then they had a quick break at Robinson’s Place Iligan for a bit of fun before heading back to Salvador at Brgy. Inasagan’s 15th Infantry Battalion Camp.
With the support of Provincial Governor Imelda “Angging” Quibranza Dimaporo through the PPO the 15th Infantry Battalion Molave Warriors and PGLDN who are working hand in hand in guiding these youth leaders in becoming the future frontrunners of our Province of Lanao del Norte and to the country which brings out the best of its people.
