Rotarians spread joy in Olango

Singapore-based members of the Rotary and Rotaract Club visited Olango Island last December 14, 2007. The team was led by Mr. Philip Tan, Chair of the Rotary Club Cebu West and Member of the PBSP Visayas Executive Committee.

The trip to Olango was part of the Rotarians exposure to various Metro Cebu communities. They provided school supplies to the pupils of Candagsao Elementary School. They also planted mangroves in San Vicente.

Olango Island is one of the three priority ecosystems of PBSP’s Metropolitan Cebu Area Resource Management Program. The other two focus areas are the Cebu Hillylands and the highly urbanized communities in Metro Cebu. PBSP’s agenda in Olango are environmental rehabilitation, access to basic services such as health and water, and economic empowerment of the fisher folks.
