Tanza, Cavite, Aug 25 (PIA) — Thirty-eight newly appointed Agrarian Reform Program Officers of Mimaropa Region underwent a five-day training workshop on Program Beneficiaries Development (PBD) functions held in Tanza Oasis Hotel in Tanza, Cavite.
“The activity was conceptualized at the close of the rationalization process. It should be an integral part of the government’s human resource development strategy to provide employees with the information as they become on board for a new position”, Ferdinand M. De Gala, Chief Agrarian Reform Program Officer emphasized.
“These newly appointed field implementers have been performing their assigned PBD tasks for almost a year or to some for more than a year. It was assumed that they have been briefed on their specific assignments but there is still a need to properly immerse them towards the depth of the program”, CARPO De Gala added.
The activity highlighted the modules on enhancing personnel effectiveness, internalizing ARC Development Perspective, acquiring ARC Development skills, participatory area planning, enterprise development, project proposal preparation, business set-up and value chain approach.
Luz Ani, one of the resource persons, shared the learning of value chain development in poverty alleviation. “No matter how good or excellent the product is technically, it is nothing if there is no buyer or market. Entrepreneurs are better off knowing what the market needs or wants, and then producing to meet those needs”, Ani stressed.
The training is a combination of lecture, structured learning exercises, simulation and workshop. CARPO Cecilia Reyes of Rizal, PARPO Marilou Baslan of Oriental Mindoro, ARCP Consultant Luz Ani and SARPO Rosemarie de Leon were the resource persons in the five-day activity. (Gefelyn A. Goleng/DAR4B)
