by Peter A. Balocnit / PIA

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Members of the Provincial Poverty Reduction, Livelihood and Employment Cluster of the Interagency Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (PRLEC-ELCAC) recently signed a pledge of commitment for the Kapwa Ko, Lingkod Ala (Kalinga) project for insurgency-affected barangays in the province.

The project, initiated by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) that heads the PRLEC, aims to develop self-reliant, resilient, and sustainable communities through the production of a community-owned organic farm and functional facilities.

The project involves training and livelihood entrepreneurship training, and aggrupation.  Beneficiaries are trained on vegetable and poultry production, carpentry and housing.

The project is also a food security intervention during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Under the project, we propose projects that involve food production to assist communities adopt with the new normal by raising food amidst the pandemic on their own after learning the skills and not just be dependent on government relief assistance,” Tesda Information Officer Imee Dong-as said.

During the PRLEC meeting on July 20, Tesda Provincial Director Victor Brioso presented   the Kalinga project to member-agencies while Provincial Training Center Administrator Artemio Jose Jr. discussed the scholarship program applied for the project.

Member agencies also presented their respective programs and projects and committed to contribute to the project. 

Gov. Ferdinand Tubban expressed his appreciation to Tesda-Kalinga for providing priority and quality training and livelihood programs that resulted in better employability of the iKalingas.

He also recognized the efforts of PRLEC members through their partnership with the provincial government and other LGUs in the province in empowering the citizenry and offering them opportunities to better their lives.
