One of the many areas of operation of Haligi ng Bata, Incorporated is the Barangay Castro, located in the sleepy town of Sudipen, La Union Farming is the number 1 source of income of Barangay Castro residents. With 92 sponsored children and families, HBI has been operating their Child Sponsorship Program here since the late 1990s.
The lands of Castro are fertile for planting tobacco, rice & other vegetation, only problem is that most of the farmers do not own their farming lands. They get a meager share of the harvested crops – too meager that they cannot fulfill the needs of the family. We are going to stop here and will let the video tell you the rest about Barangay Castro & the Castro Elementary School.
