DOLE XI funds Mag-uumang Mekaniko Program

By Rodrigo O. Roble, LEO III, TSSD, DOLE RO XI

The Department of Labor and Employment XI Regional Director Raymundo G. Agravante signed the Memorandum of Agreement to fund the Starter Kits for the “Mag-uumang Mekaniko” program in partnership with Department of Agriculture represented by DA XI Regional Director Ricardo Oñate and Director Arnel Ramir M. Apaga of the Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization.

DOLE XI approves the proposal for Starter Kit amounting to 1.2M Pesos. The program aims to provide kits for the farmers who are trained by Technical Education Skills and Development Authority (TESDA) XI who passed the Small Farm Engines with National Certificate II.

“We did not hesitate to approve the proposal knowing that our farmers need assistance like this. Remember that Region XI is an agricultural region and the numbers of farmers now is diminishing. I know how hard it is to be a farmer, because I am also a farmer. With that, you can always count DOLE XI for the welfare of our farmers.”, RD Agravante said.

The MOA signing was conducted in line with the celebration of the 2018 Gawad Saka Agri-Fishery Achievers Awarding Ceremony held at Grand Regal Hotel on May 31, 2018.
