Each month beginning with this issue, we will feature one member association so that our readers will get to know them better as we focus on their programs and projects.
For this month, we are featuring our member-association from the South – the Bicol Gamefowl Breeders Association, popularly known as BIGBA.
Established in 15 August 2002, BIGBA has been an active member of the National Federation of Gamefowl Breeders since 2003. Presently, they have a total membership of 213. For 2014, they banded 54 farms or a total of 2,045 cockerels locally and 11,813 for Bakbakan. From their entries in last year’s Bakbakan, they got a total of 32 3-pointers, two 7-pointers, and 18 entries got 8-9.5 points. And for this year’s Bullang-Bullang, they had a total of 32 qualifiers from 2-5.5 points.
The Bicol Gamefowl Breeders Association (BIGBA), an affiliate of the National Federation of Gamefowl Breeders, Inc. (NFGB), has been aggressively promoting the sport of cockfighting and the breeding industry in the Bicol Region. Aside from these, BIGBA, led by its President Vice Governor Harold O. Imperial, advocates social responsibility among its members through its health and education programs aimed to alleviate the plight of the Albayanos. Last year, medicines were distributed to chosen district hospitals in the region. This year, BIGBA opted to donate computer sets to six schools in the region, namely: Masbate South Elementary School, San Isidro Village Elementary School (Virac, Catanduanes), Oas Polytechnic High School (Albay), Libon Community College (Albay), San Jose Community College (Malilipot, Albay) and Kinale Elementary School (Polangui, Albay). The project is a response to the call for information technology facilities advancement in the elementary and secondary educational institutions in the Bicol Region. This is in cognizance to the increasing necessity for provision and improvement of I.T. amenities within the heart of the schools, to further develop the expertise, proficiency, and competency of our educators and learners as well.
In response to numerous requests from indigent residents of South Cotabato, the Socsksargen Gamefowl Breeders Association conducted 2 dental and circumcision missions. The first one was held at the grounds of St. Alexius College on April 26, 2014 while the second was held at Barangay Poblacion Norala on May 29, 2014. The “operation tuli team” was led by SGBA President and former South Cotabato Governor Dr. Arthur Pingoy.
Even as they were all exhausted after one whole day of procedures, it was quite fulfilling for the team because they were able to serve a total of 272 young boys and 72 adults and children for the dental procedures.
Dr. Pingoy and the SGBA Board extends their heartfelt thanks to the doctors and nurses who assisted to make the missions successful.
