Spearheaded by OIC PD Ma. Sofia G. Narag, DTI Quirino Provincial Office carried out the 1st wave of its Kalinga Project for 2017 on June 3, 2017 at the Provincial Gymnasium, Cabarroguis, Quirino.

With the theme “Serbisyong DTI, Serbisyong Higit pa sa Inaasahan – Kahit Saan, Kahit Kailan, Maging Sino Ka Man”, the project is part of the organizational culture of DTI Quirino which aims to promote teamwork and camaraderie among its personnel through a meaningful activity that strengthens the organization’s bond with the community specially with the indigenous and marginalized sectors in the province.

In this recently conducted activity, DTI Quirino partnered with the PLGU of Quirino and distributed rice to target beneficiaries that included pregnant women, senior citizens, persons with diabilities and indigent families. A total of 237 families benefitted from the project.

DTI Quirino’s Kalinga Project was launched last year which benefitted the Agta schoolchildren in Nagtipunan, a far-flung municipality of the Province of Quirino.  It was dubbed as “Kalinga sa mga Katutubo ng Nagtipunan Project”.
