Balanga Learning Hubs to thank for Bataan’s low poverty index–Mayor Garcia
Bataan has the second lowest poverty index in the country.
Balanga Mayor Francis Garcia announced the news during the Philippine Statistics Authority’s (PSA) annual data reporting last April 26.
The Bataan politiko cited the city’s Learning Hubs in schools and communities as one of the reasons for Bataan’s progress in education.
Balanga’s Learning Hubs allows the youth to access computers and internet services in the city for free.
Garcia also announced that an Orion-Manila ferry line will open on May 9 while a by-pass road will soon connect Bataan to Apalit, Pampanga.
