ILOILO – Philippine Saemaul Undong, a movement inspired by the success of South Korea, celebrated its fourth foundation anniversary on Tuesday through sharing of best practices from two villages in Oton and Lemery.

Punong Barangay Antonio Masculino Jr. of Abilay Sur, Oton shared how their church and community infrastructures like irrigation canals, pathways and vegetable gardens were completed using “dagyaw” system.

An effective way to boost morale and ownership, dagyaw system means that able residents agree to provide their labor for free to construct a project.
