104 ALPS/ALS learners given livelihood training

by L. Lopez

Tabuk, Kalinga (14 February) -- About 104 residents of barangays Locog and Dupag enrolled in the Alternative Learning System (ALS) were given livelihood trainings aside from their basic literacy education.

ALS Mobile Teacher Theresa Reglos said the trainees undergo special skills training on hollow blocks making, welding and mushroom propagation jointly given by TESDA-Kalinga and the Provincial Agriculturist Office.

Board Member Efraim Orodio in his keynote message during the launching urged the trainees to become "self-propelling" individuals competent to manage their own lives.

"With your special skills provided by this training, you are expected to effect change in your own lives and become more reliable members of your communities," Orodio stressed.

Barangays Locog and Dupag are major beneficiary areas of the Philippine Army's 21st Infantry Battalion under its Civilian Military Operation (COM) program under Lt. Jay Alambra.

The army is now intensifying its Social Integration Program (SIP) under the government's peace initiatives for former rebels who are now part of the civil community.

As component of the program, beneficiaries are provided livelihood trainings for them to support their families, while government assist them in their community integration.

Barangays Locog and Dupag used to be the seat of the communist movement in the province before government re-established control in the 90's, with the CMO program doing a crucial contribution.

As beneficiary areas of the Army's Literacy Patrol System (ALPS) and Department of Education's (DepEd) Alternative Learning System (ALS), Barangays Locog and Dupag can recover and develop faster from stories of their past. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
