ALAB ORIENTE

Although established officially as a barangay only in March 1972, Alab Oriente host the first village founded ages ago from which the rest of Alab sprang forth.

Sitio Dongyowan is where the first ato of the pioneering village stands. The cities of Dantay and Long-ay later emerged as the populatin increased. Now, the barangay has 506 constituents from 123 families.

The whole of Alab used to forested.

Once there was a hunter from Samoki who lost his dog. One day, as he was hunting at the area where Alab is presently situated, he was surprised to discover his missing dog lying down at a corner. He called for his resting dog so they could leave. The dog got up and they both left.

After having had lunch later that day still at the forest, the hunter noticed that his dog was missing again. He surmised that it must have returned to that place where he found it resting earlier on. He decided that the following day, he would call it back. Truly the day after, he did find his dog at the same place. He beckoned to the dog but it refused to go home with him! So the hunter went home and told his wife what happened. Both of them went to see the dog. Seeing that the place was conducive for farming, they made a clearing and started planted crops. Soon, they built a house and settled there. Their children are known to be the ascendants of the people of Alab today.

On March 3, 1972, the Mountain Province Board thru ResolutionNo. 52, S. 1972 approved the creation of another barrio sub-dividing Alab into two barangays. This was supported by the Bontoc Municipal Council Resolution No. 5, S. 1972. The petition of voters with the certification from the Acting Election Registrar that sitios Long-ay, Dongyuwan and Dantay can create one precinct  and the Certification of the Rural Sanitary Inspector that the said sitios as one barrio has 565 residents which is beyond the qualified number of a barrio under RA 3590 or the Revised Barrio Chapter ( based froom the thesis of Mrs. Jonah Gawidan 1998). As a result, Eastern portion was named Alab Oriente and the western portion as Alab Proper.

BARANGAY DEVELOPMENT PLAN

  • SITUATIONAL ANALYSIS BY SECTORS
  • Social Sector

Construction of barangay health station is one of the problem of the barangay. Barangay health workers share clinic with the neighboring barangay. Lack of this facility causes senior citizens, PWDs, pregnant and nursing mothers the need to walk at a long distance for their respective attentions. Also during emergency cases, proper first aid is not given to victims. Presence of this facility will also have a great help to persons who needs monitoring of their blood pressures.

As to education, the barangay do have two day care centers, however reading materials and learning tools are insufficient. For the protection of the pupils of Alab Elementary School, repair of Ku-usan pathway and installation of railing is needed. Aside from slippery path, portion of the path is located in a high steep of the mountain.

Though barangay officials joined by other barangay organizations and some residents underwent first aid training and basic life support, the sangguniang barangay still wishes to have trainings at least once in a semester to refreshen knowledge of the trainees and to teach new ones. This would be a great help for the barangay in times of emergency situations.

  • Economic Development Sector

For agriculture being the number one source of livelihood of the barangay, specifically growing of rice crops, the barangay sees the need of improvement of pathways from farm to market and irrigation in the farmlands. Trainings and seminars on livelihood have a great help to residents. They will have additional knowledge to the present agricultural activity and also to other applicable income generating activities such as food processing and hog raising.

  • Environmental Development Sector

Like other places, either barangay, municipality, etc., Alab Oriente prioritize waste management activity. Barangay officials and SK leading the conduct of clean and green activities. This activities, though maybe considered little, has a great impact in the betterment of the barangay and community health. Seminars and trainings on waste management is needed for better understanding of the community members.

  • Infrastructure Development Sector

With so many proposed priority projects, the barangay seeks funding to concern agencies. Completion of this projects will be a great help in the development of the barangay in many aspects. Installation of G.I pipes from Mabwang to community would ensure cleaner and abundant source of water for the residents of the barangay especially during summer. Improvement of Libliban’s farm to market pathway and installation of railings would cause an ease of travel to farmers including pupils of Alab Elementary School from sitio Dongyuwan and Long-ay.

  • Institutional Development Sector

The Barangay Officials made plans, formulate laws and ordinances to maintain public order and allocate appropriate funds  to priority development concerns in the barangay. Though with the increasing IRA plus innovations of the barangay officials, funds of a great impact for the barangay is stil inadequate.
