80 students graduate under DOLE's K-ITO project

by Maritess Benas

Bangued, Abra (29 May) -- The NIC (Nayon ti Income Cacailian) program of out-going Bangued Mayor Dominic B. Valera had given certificates to 80 graduates last May 7, 2010 under the Kabataaan Information Technology Opportunities Program (K ito) of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

In an interview with DOLE-Abra Head, Dr. Emerito Narag, the K ito is a special project of the agency to provide technical trainings to out-of-school youth as well as professionals in government who need information technology to upgrade their skills especially in computer literacy which is necessary in coping with the demands of information age.

The implementation of the K ito project in Bangued is an expansion of the NIC program of the LGU, to generate livelihood among the people of Bangued and the province as a whole.

Per Memorandum of Agreement between the DOLE and the Bangued LGU, the honorarium of the 10 mentors was paid by the DOLE. The venue and computers were provided by the LGU. The training was supposed to be conducted only for 22 hours at P3,500.00 per individual mentor. However, Bangued LGU extended the training hours to 22 days instead. The trainings were conducted at the Mega Centrum Building of the Bangued LGU.

Each mentor was assigned eight students to handle and so the total of 80 graduates.

The training covered four modules namely e familiarization with the computer hardware, how to operate the computer, operating word processing application using the MS Word, and using the internet for searching and communication. (PIA-Abra) [top]
