TABUK CITY, Kalinga- A group of motorcycle enthusiasts, together with the Highway Patrol Group (HPG), assisted parents and teachers of Tabuk City Central School (TCCS) clean the school grounds and trim the trees during their recently held Brigada Eskwela2020 on September 20.
According to Moises Baysa, Road Safety Marshal (RSM) Area Coordinator for Kalinga, their group consists of riders from all walks of life with solid commitment to help the community even amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
Baysa said that the community service was supposed to only last for half a day, but with the vast area of TCCS, the service was done the whole day.
“As long as the community needs us, we will be there. It doesn’t matter nu manu kami nga agturn-out, nu sangapulo ket adu nga ima daytan, we can do the work,” Baysa said.
Aside from their continuous community service, Baysa also said that their main advocacy is to promote road safety for riders.
“A kas makita tayu met ket dituy pagilyan tayu a Tabuk ket adu paylang dagiti violators, dayta iti maysa a tuttutukan mi, nu anya mai-contribute mi iti pada mi a riders tapnu mabawasan kuma iti aksidente,” he underscored.
Aside from the abovementioned assistance to said school, Baysa said that they are also planning to donate materials to be used for modules for other elementary schools in the near future.
