Historical Background In 1962, Mapia was still a sitio. There was no leader who could guide them during their community activities. The head of the school and the teachers have difficulties gathering people for a meeting. Coincidentally, Atty. Funelas, supervisor of the Commission On Election (COMELEC) visited the school. Mr. Juan Z. Tumblod, head of the school made a Ubo Falls conversation with Atty. Funelas how he could have a precinct in his school. Through the conversation, Mr. Tumblod was granted to have a precinct Number 31. This was made as an incentive for the head of the school for organizing his candidates to fight against the mother barangay which is barangay Bayombon in May 1963 election. Fortunately, Jacinto Magbojos from barangay Mapia was elected as Barangay Captain. His barangay councilors were Igmedio Cineo, Epifanio Ibaya, Felipe Pablo, Sofonia Alba, and Santiago Torres. Only one barangay councilor from Bayombon was elected. In view of the victory, the former Barangay Officials requested the Municipal Councilor to have a resolution separating Mapia from the mother barangay. The people of Mapia rejoiced for the separation because they will have their own leader to run the barangay. Mr. Tumblod called for a conference with the barangay officials to procure a barangay site just in front of the school. He initiated to buy the land from Mr. Gregorio Manlapaz in the amount of one thousand pesos (Php 1,000). Barangay Officials contributed four hundred pesos (Php 400). The shortage was compensated by Mr. Tumblod by giving his female carabao to the owner of the land. With this, barangay officials worked on a resolution, converting the

Sitio to Barangay.

Political Subdivision Barangay Mapia is an upland barangay composed of three (3) puroks named as: Purok I- Sampaloc, Purok IIAvocado, and Purok III- Langka. Each Purok is being administered by assigned councilors and corresponding Purok president. They also represent the Purok in all barangay governance and undertakings.

Barangay Mapia 2005-2006 Socio-Economic Profile

Natural Characteristics The general terrain of barangay presents a surface configuration ranging from slightly undulating to rolling and from hilly to mountainous. It has a slope of level to nearly level, gently sloping to undulating to rolling. Soil The types of soil embracing the barangay are Himayangan Sandy Clay Loam and Ubay Clay, Steep Phase. On one hand, Himayangan Sandy Clay Loam comprises of 540.29 hectares of the total land area. This is a residual soils developed in place from weathering of non-calcareous shale. It is characterized by light brown to gray; poor granular; gravelly sandy clay loam or surface soil ranging in depth from 0-20 centimeters (cm). In about 20-80 cm. in depth it is dark brown to grayish brown, poor coarse granular to blocky cla y loam. Eighty centimeters and below in depth, it has a yellowish red to gray clay loam with mottlings; poor course granular; mellow when wet; friable and compact when dry and sometimes sandstones are on the process of weathering. On the other hand, Ubay Clay steep phase constitute of about 650.1 hectares of the total land area. This soil is represented by cogonal areas which are roughly rolling, hilly and mountainous. It is severely eroded with plenty of igneous and Mountain range dolomitic rock boulders as outcrops. The area is well dissected by deep ravines, intermittent rivers and creeks. The area should always be under thick vegetal cover throughout the year to safeguard soil and moisture losses, and at the same time to increase organic matter content of the soil; to improve the quality and quantity of forge grasses by fertilization and application of soil amendments rather than by burning; all soil conservation measures adapted to the soil, slope and climatic conditions should be strictly observed.

Barangay Mapia 2005-2006 Socio-Economic Profile

Hydrogeology Water supply of the barangay is rated poor to fair with majority of water coming from dugwell, shallow well and deep wells. Having a residual soil developed from sedimentation, quality of water is influenced with the presence of some sediment. Hence, potability of water is affected. Proper care must be exercised for drinking to prevent water-related diseases. Water in the barangay is commonly use for domestic and agricultural activities. Natural Resources At the mountainous part of the barangay in Purok 3 exists an untapped forest ecosystem. It hosts to diverse flora and fauna, as well as forest and commercial trees. Commonly found fauna are wild boar, snakes, birds, and monkeys. A variety of locally known fore st and commercial trees grow abundantly like narra, lauan white and red, acacia, jamorawon, apitong, molave, mahogany etc. This area is actually inaccessible by many residents since the area is very far and mountainous. The protection of this forest must be took in hand for possible threat from man-made destruction. Land Use Potentials Barangay. Mapia has a vast tract of agriculture area. Having these resources, it has the potential to develop and turn its unutilized agricultural land into a more productive area for growing fruit trees. Since their major produce is copra, farmers can also discover alternative products from coconut. Pineapple production can also be increased since the barangay has ample produce of pinya before. In addition, it is also suitable for livestock and poultry production.

Population Density This rural barangay has an average population density of 85.48 persons per square kilometer in 2000. In 2005 and 2010, it is projected to reach at 92.32 and 99.10 persons per square kilometer, respectively (CDS, 2002). This data indicate that people are moving towards the barangay in the coming years. Thus, it will be densely populated with more people from urban areas transferring due to higher land prices and land constraints. Fertility: Child to Woman Ratio Fertility rate refers to the number of children that the average woman will have in her lifetime. The fertility rate marks at 0.92 or 92 children aged 0-4 to women of reproductive age, 15-49 years old. This implies a relatively higher fertility rate as compared to some rural barangay of Masbate City.

Water Water supply within the barangay may be rated as poor to fair with the population largely dependent on shallow well, deep well and even springs and creeks. The waters from deep well areas are, in general, of good quality. Care must be exercised, however, in limestone formations where calcium carbonates are the major content. The aquifers are generally susceptible to pollution caused by the activities of man and animals. As reflected on the table 3, 51%% or 126 households don have access to safe t Barangay Water System water facility vis--vis drinking water. In order to promote the general well-being of the people, Level II or the community water system-shared was developed with spring (bukal) as its main source. This will ensure that the populace will have a source of drinking water that is accessible and potable. With this, the occurrence of water borne-diseases is expected to decrease particularly among children who are vulnerable to these kinds of diseases. The water system installed in the barangay has an intake tank of 1.50mX1.50mX1.50m=3.375m3 capacity with a reservoir of 2.0mX3.0mX3.0m=18m3 capacity. It has a distribution line of 1,700 linear meters with seven units installed public faucet.

Barangay Mapia 2005-2006 Socio-Economic Profile



Solid Waste Management The majority of solid wastes within the barangay are composed of household wastes, agricultural wastes like leaf litters and coconut husks and other biodegradable materials can also be found. The wastes are often dumped or burned by residents in backyard pits. Those residing near the sea or along the coastline just dumped their garbage at the sea. Some dispose wastes literally anywhere.

Areas for Protection Aside from its untapped natural resources, there are no other areas needed for protection against abuse of human activities. Ubo falls must be protected for possible pollution due to human activities.

Mine Site A multi-national company is currently interested to resurrect the mine site left by the Americans during the American occupation in our country. It is located at the mountainous portion of Mapia specifically in the boundary of Mapia and XYZ. The initial operation will be putting up of a bone mill factory where gold extracted from the different parts of Baleno and Aroroy will be processed here. The threat of this industry is the proliferation of the mercury if it will be used to separate gold or the unexplored effect of cyanide if the company will use it as an alternative to mercury. Tailings pond will also be constructed, however, its hazardous effect are not yet known.

Barangay Mapia 2005-2006 Socio-Economic Profile


Based on the table above, it revealed that the top five Minimum Basic Need of Barangay Mapia are the following: 1) Proportion of households without access to safe water; 2) Proportion of households without access to sanitary toilet facilities; 3) Proportion of children 13-16 years old not in high school; 4) Proportion of households with income less than the poverty threshold; 5) Proportion of households with income less than the food threshold. It can be derived that poverty poses the main concern of the barangay as well as the city. Hence, programs and projects developed by the city government should be geared towards poverty reduction. Summary of Issues/Concerns and Challenges 1. Proportion of households with no access to safe water. ? Construction of Level II water project (communal faucet) should be implemented to cover the whole barangay. Such project will reduce the contamination of water source. ? Chlorination of open dug well as well as deep or shallow well. ? Periodic monitoring of water source. 2. On proportion of households with no access to sanitary toilet facilities. Almost 69% or 172 households do not have sanitary toilet. This means that there is an indiscriminate dumping of human waste anywhere which may pose hazard to the health condition of the populace. In view of this, the barangay may allocate funds for this problem so that public or a private toilet should be constructed with common septic tank. 3. Proportion of children 13-16 years old not in high school. ? ? Grant scholarship to poor but deserving students. Road improvement for the accessibility of high school

4. Proportion of household with income less than the poverty threshold. ? Encourage investors in the barangay to open new livelihood opportunities that will provide the residents job that will give them a permanent monthly income.

Barangay Mapia 2005-2006 Socio-Economic Profile


? ? ?

Provide capital for food processing projects and other small scale business. Skills enhancement training for residents in preparation for job opportunities such as welders, mechanics, and other related works. Intensification of seeds and animal dispersal with fertilizer and agricultural equipment.

5. Other social concern that should be given priority: ? Health- upgrade health facilities and provide additional health equipment to provide better health care services to those in need. Also increase in the allotment for medicines should be included in the budget of the barangay. Social Welfare- there is a need to construct an additional day care center to cater children 3-6 years old. Moreover, day care centers should be given budget for the provision of educational materials to children as well as the classroom for better comprehension and familiarization of the pre-school children. For the vulnerable groups, mutual aid system should be given.

The programs of the city government are geared towards poverty reduction. Developmental social programs and projects are being conceive to provide quality education, better health care, security, and empowering all sectors of the society. Education The greatest challenge of the Department of Education with the LGU is to provide quality education among Mapia Elementary School children in elementary and secondary level. It may seem elusive but it can be achieved through provision of programs and projects anchored on academic excellence and education for all. Mapia Elementary School is the only primary school present in the barangay. It caters to children 6-12 years old. However, there are children above 12 years old who still avail elementary education. This is a complete elementary school complemented with1:1 teacher-classroom ratio and approximately 1:35 teacher-pupil ratio. Performance indicators of the elementary school also reflect that it has a graduation rate of 86.96% with almost 0% drop-out rate. Other indicators are found on table 13. The facilities of Mapia Elementary School in terms of its classrooms are good which were renovated or repaired by the TEEP Organization. However, other school facilities that are deemed necessary for the total development of the children are lacking. Absence of library room, industrial arts, agriculture and H.E. rooms, laboratory, school clinic and insufficiency of toilets are setbacks in the educational system of the school. Thus, there is a need to install/construct such facilities in order to provide better learning and hands-on experience of the lessons being taught to the school children. The accessibility of elementary and secondary education poses another problem of the barangay. Barangay Mapia has 56 children (6-12 years old) or a proportion of 22.20 who are not attending elementary education. For secondary or high school, a total of 82 children ages 13-16 years old or a proportion 68.90% who are not attending secondary education.

The health center of the barangay is equipped with weighing scale, table and chair. It has one (1) midwife and four (4) Barangay Health Workers. They don just implement health programs; t they too monitor and visit households to conduct health services. The city doctors, nurses and dentists are also conducting a monthly visit to give medical services to the barangay. With the existing facilities of the health center, patients of the barangay with minor medical and dental needs sought care at BHS while major cases are being brought to any government or private hospitals at Masbate poblacion where there is adequate facilities and equipment. One of the problems encountered by the barangay is the insufficiency of medical supplies and other basic health equipment and facilities such as examination bed, sphygmanometer, etc.

Health is likewise concern with the use of contraceptive among couples in Barangay Mapia. The barangay has 248 couples. Of the said number, only 25 couples are practicing family planning methods. Among the enumerated methods below, majority of the couples chose rhythm method with a total 10 couples. Rhythm or natural method is not always safe due to miscalculations. There is a big possibility that population growth will continue to rise. The need of advocacy for responsible parenthood, proper care for children, etc are necessary to help parents realize their important roles to their families.
