We went for a little stroll and stumbled upon another relocation area. This is of particular interest in relation to the UNDP Relocation Site we visited earlier. The stuff in-between the architecture makes all the difference. Some of the things we discussed would be suitable for Cagbuhangin are already in place. A huge roof, a basketball court, small gardens, a playground. These things are everywhere and everyone is using them.
We will schedule a meeting with the inhabitants of the UNDP Site in Cagbuhangin and see what additions they would prefer. Our guess is it wont be much different from whats here, plus some sort of market facility.
Below description of this relocation area was found on GK's Website: http://www.gk1world.com Again, the resident story is very similar to Cagbuhangin's relocation area:
"GK Santiago is located at Sitio Canlalin, Poblacion, Albuera Leyte. Brgy. Canlalin is the center of the municipality where the seat of the local government is located. The site is about 500 meters from the national road and is easily accessible by land transportation. Potable water is readily available. All beneficiaries are residents of Brgy. Poblacion. They came from poor families who have no decent houses and lots of their own. Most of them are farmers, fishermen and tricycle drivers. Miss Anecita Zaidivar donated a portion of a sugarcane-planted lot with an area of approximately 1.3 hectares for a noble purpose, thus the GK site was unexpectedly offered as donation."
