ADCEP Statement on Lucio “Ka Louie” Tabing
ADCEP Philippines deeply mourns the sudden passing of Lucio “Ka Louie” Tabing, pioneer of school-on-the-air, multi-awarded community broadcaster, and development communicator. All his life, Ka Louie dedicated himself to being the voice of farmers, extension workers, and agricultural communities. His most distinguished work is project Radio Tambuli (Tinig ng Aming Munting Bayan Upang Umunlad ang Maliliit). His broadcast work in the Philippines extended to Southeast Asian countries and Africa. He has influenced many communities to embrace the use of community radio as a strategy in community development. May his life serve as an inspiration to all development communicators.
