PIA Press Release

NAPC turns over P1.5M Kalahi Center to Oro city gov't

Cagayan de Oro City (12 September) -- A P1.5-million Kalahi Center funded by the National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC) was formally turned-over to the city government of Cagayan de Oro by NAPC Secretary Domingo Panganiban, Sept. 10.

Sec. Panganiban gave the symbolic key to City Mayor Constantino G. Jaraula in front of City Hall employees and city government officials during the regular flag raising ceremony.

Panganiban hoped that the Kalahi Center can help Mayor Jaraula in realizing his plans and projects for the poor families, especially those who need trainings to develop their skills.

The Kalahi Center at the Calaanan Resettlement Site will serve as venue for livelihood trainings, seminars and other functions related to help alleviate the plight of the poor residents in Cagayan de Oro, as well as the people in Northern Mindanao.

Mayor Jaraula thanked NAPC and Sec. Panganiban whom he considers a good friend for the support he extended to the city.

He said that the Kalahi Center can greatly help his vision to empower and capacitate the residents at the Calaanan relocation site to become highly skilled workers.

Mayor Jaraula envisions the Calaanan Relocation Site to be a showcase of effective local governance for the entire country, as a program that truly addresses the needs of the people in the community.

With the Kalahi Center, Mayor Jaraula is planning to tap the technical assistance of the Alternative Learning System of the Department of Education (DepEd) and the Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) to train the residents in Calaanan on livelihood skills like dressmaking, cooking, plumbing, practical electricity, refrigeration, and cellphone repair, among others, to help them earn additional income for their family.
