Tortugas Breaking Dawn

posted Nov 29, 2012, 12:52 AM by Barangay Tortugas
With great pride and humility, see at how far we have gone as a Barangay!
Reports of what's happening in our community can be viewed here for your perusal.
We are very grateful with the governing City and Provincial authorities who are instrumental in granting multimillion worth of funding to Barangay Tortugas. When you Google Barangay Tortugas, you will no longer see a dot in a map but a much improved, developed and Progressive Island! Because we believe in our government, we know that whatever plans we do, the Almighty will establish them.

Jeremiah 29:11 for I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (NIV)

This verse from THE BOOK always comes to my mind each day I step inside our Barangay Hall to work as we see our future today! There is no idle moment here as the City of Balanga government continuously injects us with programs, projects and assistance; always considering and looking out for the interests of everyone in the Barangay level. And look at where we are now!

I must admit that barangay administration is oftentimes very challenging but one which is also encouraging given the benefits residents receives at the end of the day. These are what tie the Barangay Council and the residents together. This is why we work hard. We work hard because the development  and changes brought about by the generous programs being given down by our good city Mayor Joet Garcia help us, educate us, nurture us, and  strengthen us. When faced with financial challenge and other limitations, we rely on our own initiative to get things done and for that matter; we are able to give the different services needed by the community.  We are fortunate to get the kind support from the various sectors which care to work hand and hand with us. And we thank them for that. That is why Barangay Tortugas is a HALL OF FAMER, a three time Most Outstanding Barangay Award recipient in the city of Balanga!

To get, we must give
To lead, we must serve
