Babasa, Jr. of the municipality of Bayog, Zamboanga del Sur, thru the Municipal Budget Office and in coordination with the barangay local government units conducted the Barangay Computer Literacy Program which started on November 28, 2011. This was held at the Office of the Municipal Budget Officer-Guest House Computer Room, Municipal Government Center here.

Twenty-eight barangay treasurers attended the trainings in seven batches for ten weeks. The training enabled the participants to know the importance of computer literacy, the basics of computer operation and 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.)

Melly Galambao-Madamba, together with Lorenzo Sta. Ana, Jr., technical staff, handled the said training as instructors.

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 satisfactorily within the demands and in keeping with modern techniques. (BAG/ALT-PIA9/Zambo Sur)
