POs attend comprehensive site dev't training



 two-day Comprehensive Site Development Training for POs of CHARM2 Project- covered barangays with agro-forestry projects was conducted. The activity was held on October 1 and 2, 2013 at the Ridgebrooke Hotel, Samoki, Bontoc Mountain Province and it was initiated by the CHARM2 Project personnel under the Agro-forestry component.


Participants to the activity were the LGUs, Peoples’ Organization officers particularly from barangays Data in Sabangan, Gueday in Besao, and barangays Mainit and Guina-ang in Bontoc, and the community mobilization officers (CMOs) assigned in those areas. Members and officers of Peoples’ Organizations in these places graduated from the Farmers’ Field School, a four month pre-requisite schooling before, their organization can avail of the project.


To catch up with the delay of the implementation of these projects, Mr. Reagan Codmos from CHARM2 Project Component 2 gave the POs two options to choose from; 80%-20% or 70%-30% this means, the 80% or 70% of the seedlings of their own choice will be bought plantables while the remaining 20% or 30% of the seedlings will be sowed. These options were suggested in order for the POs to cope up with the implementation period. He also reminded the POs to keep all records especially the expenses made before, during and after the implementation of the project which shall be needed by the Commission on Audit after completion of the project.


The work planning and financial budgeting is an essential tool for the Peoples’ Organizations to always look at before and during project implementations. This is done to prevent them from suffering consequences especially during validation which may cause nonpayment of completed project because of failure to follow instructions according to the program of work.


LGU’s who were present and CMO’s assisted the POs in preparing their work plans and financial budgeting according to the items of work to be undertaken and the approved financial budget for said projects. Work plans were however finalized after thorough review and were printed out for POs and barangay chairmen’s signature.// Claridad Kiat-ong, CMO
