The Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan and PAMAG brought compassion to the scavengers in Bonuan Gueset.  They are referred as “manga-ngalakal” in Filipino vernacular. They collect discarded plastics, bottles, papers, and metals and sell these recyclable materials. Bonuan Gueset is located in the coastal area of Dagupan City. These low-income families are vital to the collection of said recyclable materials in the coastal area and it is their primary source of income. Previous projects awarded five “manga-ngalakal” tri-bikes donated by the club through the Rotary District grant as a livelihood enabler to help them become more effective at collecting recyclable materials which translates to a DIRECT POSITIVE IMPACT AT CONSERVING THE ENVIRONMENT

In addition, PAMAG in memory of its Past President Dr. Victor Bautista, and RC Uptown Dagupan distributed 20 grocery packs to these families last June 29, 2022.  The grocery packs contained rice, noodles, milk, loaf of bread with spread, canned goods, coffee biscuits, and multivitamins for children. We hope that these food packs bring some immediate relief to their families and that future projects can help improve their livelihood.
