Celebrating the Spirit of “Pag-ajonay”

Celebrating the Spirit of “Pag-ajonay”

In Southern Leyte parlance, the word “ajonay” means to volunteer, help each other, support each other. Just as it should be, RIC members, farmers and fisher folk associations, and 4H club scholars gathered and celebrated their oneness with the Ajonay sa mga RBOs Sayawit Night on August 10, 2017 in Maasin City, Southern Leyte.

RTC 8 Center Director Dr. Vilma M. Patindol recognized the big role of RBOs in agricultural production in Region 8 and she thanked them for this. Dr. Patindol also encouraged them to continue with their “pag-ajonay” so that they may inspire other municipalities.

To embolden RBOs to be more proactive and productive, the Center with the LGU of Maasin City awarded the 3 Most Outstanding Farmers Association, 3 Most Outstanding Rural Improvement Club, 3 Most Outstanding Fisher Folks Association, Farmer of the Year, Fisherman of the Year, and Outstanding 4H Scholar.

Among the awardees were United Farmers of Baugo (Outstanding Farmers Association) and Malapoc Norte (Most Outstanding RIC). Ms. Anna Leah Layola, an ATI scholar who just graduated from the Visayas State University with a Certificate in Agriculture Science, was awarded as the Outstanding 4H Scholar.
