Barangay Pasong Tamo

District 6, Quezon City, Philippines

Welcome

Geographically situated in the heart of Quezon City.  Barangay Pasong Tamo is endowed with historical, rich culture and aspirations.

From its humble existence as a barrio and original inhabitants, the Barangay was transformed and nurtured into a self-reliant community through the good leadership and governance. Among the programs instituted are the moral and value formation undertaken with the residents to become socially aware and responsible to the needs of the Barangay.

Alongside with this, are the various economically empowering measures designed to place the residents in the economic mainstream. Political reforms have been instituted to unify all sectors towards the developmental goals of the community. These institutional reforms are conceived of mutual and shared responsibilities in the developmental changes in the community.   

Originally Barangay Pasong Tamo is a part of District II of Quezon City but as of July 2, 2012, Pres. Benigno Aquino III signed a Republic Act No. 10170 reproportioning the Barangay to District VI.
