  • Lagangilang, Abra on 15-18 April
  • Del Carmen, Surigao del Norte on 21-26 April
The hands-on training on community radio broadcasting is part of the capacity building aspect of the Nutriskwela Community Radio Network Program. The NNC provides the equipment and training while the partner local government unit or state university and college manages and maintains the station and provides the broadcast personnel as well. During the training, the community radio council is also organized. The multi-sectoral radio council is expected to manage the station in coordination with the station personnel.

The Nutriskwela Community Radio Network Program is a strategy of the National Nutrition Council that aims to empower communities through the establishment of community radio stations to disseminate nutrition, health and development-oriented information. The program has established 15 Nutriskwela Community radio stations the first five in 2008 and the second ten in 2010.

Bicol Plantations to Receive Grant Money - BM

SORSOGON CITY—Abaca and coconut plantations in the Bicol region have been identified and placed by the Department of Agriculture (DA) under its technology commercialization (TechCom) program which is funded by a grant from the government of Japan. The grant, according to DA regional executive director Jose Dayao, was under Japan’s 2KR (Kennedy Round)-Grant Assistance for Underprivileged Farmers (GAUF) that aims to support a range of diverse projects that adopt appropriate technology for commercial use. Last year, the Tokyo approved a ¥300-million grant under 2KR- GAUF for the Philippines to help tillers who can barely meet their families’ basic needs to raise their income and yield per hectare.
