BJMP-Caraga conducts literacy, livelihood program to inmatesby Robert E. Roperos
BUTUAN CITY, Jan. 12 (PIA) -- In an effort to provide literacy and livelihood opportunities to inmates, Caraga Region’s Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) continues to conduct trainings and seminars.
BJMP Assistant Regional Director Dario Campos in a radio interview here said the program aims to provide the inmates with proper values, skills and livelihood opportunities “so that by the time they will finish serving their sentence, they can still be productive citizens of the country.”
“Ang maong mga programa gibuhat aron mahatagan og kahigayunan ang atong mga inmates nga makabaton og maayong mga gawi ingon man kahibalo sa natad panginabuhi-an, aron sa panahong makagawas na sila, mamahimo guihapon silang produktibo sa komunidad,” Campos said.
(The programs are intended to give inmates the opportunity to learn good values and skills, as well as livelihood opportunities so that when they are already free, they can still be productive in the community.)
Insp. Campos also said the literacy training program is in coordination with the Alternative Learning System (ALS) of the Department of Education (DepEd).
Aside from the literacy training program, the official said the livelihood program will enable the inmates to be given business opportunities that can be used in the future. (PIA-Caraga)
