COMMUNITIES IN ZAMBOANGA SIBUGAY

GK Baluyan Hills
GK COMMUNITY
Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay
The word Baluyan is a Subanen word which means livestock area. The Subanens are natives who are dominant in Zamboanga Sibugay and its neighboring provinces. Upon the development of Buug as a municipality, Baluyan Hills became part of Barangay Bliss, thus the Subanens learned to live side by side with the new settlers but some of them sold their property for a bargain and move up into the forested or undeveloped area of the municipality. This particular tribe still exists today and they live along with the people of Buug and other sectors  ofsociety. The families who live in the GK site are informal settlers who live in the Barangay Bliss and its neighboring barangay in the Poblacion area of Buug.They gain self confidence because of the experience they learn in GK. Partners that help developed the site are Provincial Government of Zamboanga Sibugay, ECOGOV, ANCOP Canada, NHA for the Land, and Bayan-Anihan Program.
