MP sustains job plan for rebel returnees
by PIO&ndahs;Mt. Province

BONTOC, Mountain Province – The provincial government continues to sustain its Provincial Livelihood Program of Rebel Returnees program, which is intended to help former rebels regain normal lives in the community. 

Now on its eighth year of implementation, 28 rebel returnees, 10 of them female, are currently waiting for the signing of the memorandum of agreement for the renewal of their contracts.

Based on the data of the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office, the program first implemented in 2011 benefitted 42 rebel returnees in the province. 

Renewable every year, the provincial government through the PSWDO conducts year-end evaluation on the performance of the beneficiaries.

Under the program, the rebel returnees and their respective barangay chairpersons sign a memorandum of agreement with the provincial government represented by the governor. In the MOA, barangay chairmen are tasked to supervise and sign the daily time records of the beneficiaries in their respective barangays. Aside from the beneficiaries themselves, the punong barangays also report on the performance of the rebel returnees.

A qualified beneficiary receives P5,000 monthly allowance in exchange for community service they render in their barangay. They are required to work from Mondays to Fridays except holidays.

Community services include cleaning of pathways and roads, irrigation maintenance, tree planting, assisting in the day care centers and health stations, helping in the repair of school buildings, and performing other tasks assigned to them by their barangay leaders.

Once admitted in the program, they are prohibited from making contacts with their former comrades.
