Citizens act for Bukidnon

Barog Bukidnon took its name on August 15, 2013 during its first meeting with the Citizen Action Network for Accountability (CANA) and IWPR through Director Alan Davis. Barog Bukidnon began as friends in the social media who shared the common desire for a clean and transparent government in their province. Aware that there is more to be done outside the limitations of cyberspace and towards achieving a clean and honest government, the citizens then formed Barog Bukidnon.

Barog Bukidnon simply means “Stand up, Bukidnon.”

But its name has never been simple. Its members say their goal is to call on the people of Bukidnon to stand up and fight corruption and inefficiency in the province. A clean and honest local government is something which is not given in a silver platter; it is something that the citizenry has to fight for.
