IP Civil Registration in Davao del Norte

A right to a name and a nationality...

The NCIP Davao del Norte facilitated the IP CIVIL REGISTRATION to the INDIGENOUS CULTURAL COMMUNITIES of Barangays Balagunan , Tulalian and Bobongon, all within the municipality of Sto. Tomas last Sept. 26 at Tribal House, Brgy. TULALIAN. The project aimed at recognizing the basic rights of the indigenous peoples to a name and a nationality through the registration of their birth.

The activity was supported by the local government of Sto. TOMAS thru the Municipal Mayor Hon. Ernesto Evangelista and the municipal LCR

Aside from the civil registration, the NCIP lawyers, Atty. Ariel Montana and Atty. Joan Melo were very kind in extending legal assistance to those with problems in the entries of their names,surnames year of birth and gender.

"Dako ni ug tabang sa amoa kay dako jud ang among kakulangon sa pinansyal kung lihukon namo ang birth certificate sa mga bata kay plete pa lang daan padulong sa munisipyo maglisud nami, said Datu Lito Aquino, the Barangay Tribal Chieftain and IPMR of Brgy. Tulalian.

It was decided by NCIP and the LCR that those who still wished to avail of the project may proceed to the LCR up to October 11, 2019 with complete requirements for them to be included in the payment of the mandated fees.

After the activity, the NCIP Team proceeded to the Provincial Ofiice to receive the official portrait of the Governor Edwin Jubahib to be displayed at the Office.

Salamat Magbabaya for the success..
