Presented by: Unlimited Productions, Inc., Development Bank of the Philippines and Galing Pook Foundation
Aired on: September 17, 19 and 22, 2013 (ABS-CBN News Channel)
Amidst the crisis in Zamboanga City, Galing Pook features the peaceful and resourceful people in the neighboring province of Zamboanga del Norte in its ninth episode.
The largest in terms of land area among the three Zamboanga provinces, Zamboanga del Norte has in at least one instance been ranked as the poorest province in the country.
In this week’s episode of Galing Pook, we take a look at their economic development program focused on agriculture, and how this program has helped the provincial government address the problem of poverty.
We also take a look at their native inhabitants—the Subanen—and how the provincial government has reached out to them to make them active stakeholders in governance.
