MAMBAJAO, Camiguin, Jan 15 (PIA) — The Camiguin Interpretive Center was formally launched last week with the signing of the memorandum of agreement (MOA) and turn-over of the marker to the province and to the local government unit of Mambajao.
The Interpretive Center was established with the technical and funding support from the New Zealand Aid Programme through the Camiguin Coastal Resource Management Project (CRMP), while the provincial and municipal local governments are tasked to oversee the operation and management of the center, as well as, monitor and document its use.
The center serves as the primary source of information on historical accounts founded on stories of the people in the island which unfolded from generation to generation.
Moreover, the local government will also provide a counterpart fund to cover its operational cost.
A committee will likewise be formed to foresee its operations and ensure the formulation of the Interpretative Center Plan which will spell out tasks from all parties involved in order to achieve specific goal.
Camiguin Governor Jurdin Jesus M. Romualdo for his part also expressed optimism for the project.
“With this, the more we will be identified – how beautiful our island province is,” the governor said.
Mambajao Mayor Maria Luisa De La Fuente Romualdo likewise urged townsfolk to help in promoting the interpretative center which can be found at the Tourism Pavilion in Poblacion Mambajao. (PIA 10)
