Lepanto Cares reaches out to far-flung villages in Mankayan
by Press release

Thirty pupils of Las-Igan Multi-Grade School in Sitio Las-igan, Barangay Cabiten, Mankayan, Benguet went home one day with brand new bags, school supplies, toys, and smiles on their faces, and joy in their hearts courtesy of a team from Lepanto Mining Corporation.

Sitio Las-igan is one of the remotest communities in Mankayan. With no road access, it can only be reached on foot in about three hours, trekking a couple of mountains and crossing three hanging bridges over gushing rivers.

After the distribution of school supplies, the team visited another remote community, Barangay Bedbed. Unlike Sitio Las-igan, Bedbed can be reached by a four-wheel drive vehicle, but this means traversing an hour of rough roads and crossing a narrow river.

Headed by LCMC President and Chief Operating Officer Bryan U. Yap, Vice President for HRAD Knestor Jose Y. Godino, and VP/Resident Manager Engr. Tom Consolacion, the Lepanto team turned over cultural instruments like gongs and solibao; Benguet native attires; educational books; and a television set for the Bedbed day care, elementary, and high schools.

“Labis-labis ang aming tuwa at pasasalamat, dahil hindi namin sukat akalain na mismong ang mga nasa itaas na position, mga nasa executive na lebel, ay bababa sa mga malalayong lugar, lalo na dito sa amin sa Bedbed na talagang mahirap puntahan,” said Punong Barangay Dalion N. Baygan.

Sitio Am-am in Barangay Balili is another far-flung community in Mankayan. Although it has a paved road, it will still take an hour and a half drive to reach the village. Over 50 pupils of Am-am Elementary School were gifted with new school bags, while teachers get to enjoy new computers and printers.

To date, 12 schools and over 2,000 students of Mankayan have been serviced by the mining company.
