School Building Construction
In order to increase the lack of classrooms in public schools, it has become a habit for the Provincial Government, under the leadership of LRay Villafuerte, to provide assistance to fulfill the needs of the students, in which many classrooms where built in different public elementary and high schools in the entire province. Because of this project, students who used to suffer conducting classes under trees were lessened. Now, they have a better and a more comfortable classroom to study in. This resulted to higher grades and better learning among students.
Library Hub Construction
Lray Villafuerte Jr, as the Father of the Province, ensured a steady support to students and their education. This was shown through the establishment of libraries in public schools. This encouraged students to read books and improve their studies in the same way that LRay gave importance to his education when he was still a student like them.
To provide the request of most of public schools, school stages were built by the Provincial Government. Almost all schools were given assistance so that they would have a better place to host programs for the students and their families.
Lray Villafuerte also responded to the needs of public schools for a pavilion. Now, they hold their school programs in these comfortable and spacious pavilions.
Repainting of Schools
In order to maintain the classrooms and other parts of the public schools, LRay Villafuerte and the Provincial Government decided to have these structures repainted.
LRay Villafuerte also responded to the call of those in far barangays that do not have decent pathwalks. The construction of concrete pathwalks was funded by the Provincial Government. What was formerly rough and rocky is now concretized.
As response to the request of the constituents for potable water, LRay Villafuerte established water systems to ensure the safety of the people in his province against water borne diseases.
LRay Villafuerte also made sure to solve the problem of flooding especially during the rainy season through riprapping and provision of drainage systems in the area.
To fully distract the youth from vices such as alcohol, drugs, gambling, and others, LRay Villafuerte decided to construct covered courts in various barangays. The courts are beautiful, properly-constructed, modern-looking enough to support the sports program for the youth.
In the three terms of service of LRay Villafuerte as governor of the province, one of his priority programs is the establishment of hospitals for the whole province, complete with facilities and personnel.
As response to the needs for health services, the Provincial Government under LRAy put up health centers especially in far flung barangays.
A bright future for the youth is Lray’s priority. This is through providing free education in elementary and high school. During his term as Governor, Lray had the most number of scholars in the history of the province.
As a result of his successes in TOURISM, INVESTMENTS, and BUSINESSES of the Provincial Government, CamSur pioneered the implementation of NO COLLECTION POLICY of all DepEd fees in elementary and High School. Free Education brought about by TOURISM.
Still because of tourism income, LRay Villafuerte continuously uplifts the living of his fellowmen, especially that of the parents of students. Aside from free education, free school supplies are distributed like School Bags, School Shoes and Slippers. To date, no other governor has done this.
Early Childhood Care and Development Kits, which focus on children ages 5 and below, were distributed. This is to ensure a strong foundation for learning among children and to monitor their growth.
Students are not the only ones whose needs were provided for by LRay Villafuerte. Teachers’ major needs were also provided to ensure that they effectively teach the youth.
Locally Funded Teachers
To respond to the need for more teachers, the Provincial Government under the leadership of LRay Villafuerte allocated funds for locally-funded teachers. These teachers are assigned by the Provincial Government to the elementary and secondary schools that still lack teachers.
Breaks Guiness World Record Twice
Under LRay Villafuerte’s leadership, the province made a new world record of the most number of seedlings planted in an hour and bagged the Guinness Book of World Records. Shortly after, Camsur again beat the world record as it led in planting 1 million mangroves in an hour.
LRay Villafuerte’s good governance inspired Gawad Kalinga to award the Provincial Government as the only GK Designed Province in the nation. Camsur has the most number of Gawad Kalinga Villages to the point where almost all municipalities has a GK Community.
Provincial Government, UNDP & IOM Housing Program
Pabahay ni LRay. This program solved the need of the marginalized who do not have their own decent house. Those who used to live in shacks and endure both intense heat and heavy rain were provided with concrete housing by LRay. At present, 10 thousand houses were constructed by the Provincial Government throughout CamSur.
Camsur Watersports Complex (CWC)
The Camsur Watersports Complex was the start of progress that the province has been savoring up until now. Alongside this are job opportunities for the people of the province. At present, more than 2,000 individuals are employed and are enjoying a comfortable living through CWC.
Gota Village and Hunongan Cove (CARAMOAN)

Camsur Animation Studio
Part of the wide Camsur Information Technology Park is the Camsur Animation Studio that gave hope to the talented out-of-school youth. The first digital animation film, which was chosen as one of the entries for the Metro Maniila Film Festival, was made in this studio. The animators received a weekly salary of PhP 3,000 to PhP 4,500.
The unemployed Camarinenses that have medical background were given the chance to work through Medical Transcription Job Offers brought about by the Information Technology Park in the capitol.
