BAYOG, Zamboanga del Sur, Jan 18 -- The Barangay Computer Literacy Program which started on November 28, 2011, is a live-out, 10-week training where participants are the 28 barangay treasurers.
The training will teach the treasurers on the basics of computer operation and more specifically, to be able to formulate their respective Barangay Annual Budget for 2012.
According to Melojean C. Apelacio, barangay treasurer of Lamare, “As one of the recipients of this literacy program, dako kaayo mi ug pasalamat nga nagpahigayon ug training sama niini tungod kay di lang nakahibalo mi mo-operate sa computer kung dili nakakat-on pod mi unsaon pag-formulate ang among budget sa barangay (As one of the recipients of the program, we are so grateful that this training was conducted because not only were we able to learn how to operate a computer, but also we learned how to formulate our own budget for the barangay.)."
With the advent of new technologies, it is never too late to learn and adopt new innovations. It is expected that at the end of the program, participants will be able to handle public administration roles satisfactorily within the demands and in keeping with modern techniques.
