Farmers and residents in Ampusongan, Bakun would often fear to travel through a portion of Ay-ay Cabutotan farm-to-market road during heavy rains due to its susceptibility to erosion. To address this concern, the said road section has recently been improved with a project cost of P2 million as part of the HEALTHIER Benguet agenda of Gov. Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas. This project is only one among the different road development projects funded and implemented by the Provincial Government of Benguet headed by Gov. Diclas in the municipality of Bakun. #HEALTHIERBenguet#UnitedBenguet
Driven by its mission: Ensure Improvement of Quality of Life in Benguet, the Province of Benguet obtained a human development index of 0.883 in 2009. The province of Benguet promises its constituents high age expectancy, accessible high caliber education and more than sufficient way of living. This, however, can't be achieved without the help of its people.
The cultural beliefs and innate characteristics of the people made it possible for them to strive and develop higher quality of life without destroying the cradle that they live in.
