Inmates learn bayong-making for money

Koronadal City (18 November) -- Inmates in Malapatan District Jail will soon have income-generating activities to while away long days in their cells.

At least 10 jail inmates in Malapatan, last week underwent "bayong-making" training conducted by members of the Rural Improvement Club (RIC) under the Municipal Agricultural Office.

Jail Warden Senior Inspector Marlon Robles said, the training is part of the Inmates' Welfare Development (IWD) Program of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP).

"Our objective is to explore and enhance the inmates' skills and talents that they can use to earn income while inside the jail," Robles said.

The native bags that the inmates will produce will be displayed and sold during the product exhibit at the Munato Festival in Sarangani Capitol in Alabel, Sarangani.

Funds for the training of the inmates were provided by the Local Government Unit of Malapatan and the Department of Agriculture.

Robles said he is grateful for the concern of the LGU and DA to give livelihood opportunities for the inmates. (DE Doguiles/PIA 12 with report from M. Robles, J Singson, M Depra, and R Tagaoc) [top]
