Recently, our government launched the Balik Probinsya Program. It only has one purpose: to encourage citizens to go back to their hometown and probably live or start a good life there. For instance, if you lost your job in Metro Manila due to pandemic, you can join this program so you could go back to Samar, Leyte, Masbate, etc.
I feel like this program is AWESOME. Aside from helping unemployed in NCR, one long-term effect would be the resolution for overpopulation. Metro Manila has always been a symbol of hope for many. They try to live in the capital city since they like to experience the benefits of easy access to transportation, jobs, and goods. But the competition is too high and it results in poverty!
I just hope that aside from helping them go back to their province, it’s better to diminish provincial rate as well.
