Posted on November 27, 2012


WALLS defaced by graffiti in Mandaue City may soon get cleaned with the help of outreach efforts of a fraternity.

Members of the Tau Gamma Phi started painting graffiti-marred walls i in the main streets of barangay Guizo last Saturday.

Nognog Angeles, one of the leaders of the fraternity also known as Triskelions’ Grand Fraternity, said they will mobilize the group’s 14 chapters in city for the clean-up.

Aside from restoring walls, the group is also cleaning clogged drainage and will donate a waiting shed in barangay Guizo.

The project of the fraternity is supported by the city government according to Jamaal James Calipayan, executive secretary of Mayor Jonas Cortes.

The city government is providing the group with paint, he said.

Calipayan said the city government suggested to the Tau Gamma to focus their campaign in the city center, like barangay Ibabao-Estancia and Alang-alang, aside from Guizo.

Calipayan said they are calling on other fraternities to join the campaign.

Frederick Bejo, project pointman of Tau Gamma said, they have also asked their chapters to identify areas to work on. /correspondent Jucell Marie P. Cuyos
