San Jose, Antique – Two recipient barangays of the Retooled Community Support Program (RCSP) in the Province of Antique received Smart TVs during the launching of the RCSP TV Aralan Series, held on Nov. 25, 2020 at Adelaide Tourist and Traveler’s Inn, San Jose, Antique.  

The RCSP is only one of the strategies employed by the government in ending insurgency by strengthening the  government’s role in establishing peace and development in every community.

The TV Aralan Series, which forms part of the RCSP, is an initiative by the DILG Region 6 in partnership with the Regional Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC). Along with the Smart TVs, three modules were also provided for learning and development of key barangay stakeholders.

“It is a mechanism to keep the target audience in the target barangays abreast and well-informed of the various programs, projects and activities of DILG and other concerned national government agencies.” said DILG R6 OIC-Regional Director Juan Jovian Ingeniero during the launching.

The RTF-ELCAC has been active in its duty to bring peace and development in the region through its sub-clusters.  Various efforts have been advanced and maintained so as to realize its aspirations for the region. 

DILG Antique PD Cherryl Tacda said that the DILG Antique Province has been assisting the recipient barangays in the implementation of the RCSP by strengthening their barangay based institutions, empowering their communities and revisiting their barangay development plans to ensure that the programs and projects are shovel ready when the appropriate budget comes in 2021.

“Of the 74 RCSP recipient barangays in Region 6, two are from the Province of Antique -  Brgy. Bulan-Bulan, San Remigio and Brgy. Cabladan, Sibalom,”  said RCSP Provincial Focal Person Whel Frank Santias.

The Municipal Mayors of Sibalom and San Remigio, Hon. Gian Carlo Occena and Hon. Margarito Mission Jr; and the Punong Barangays of the RCSP recipient barangays, PBs Pedro Raymundo and Porficio Cabigunda expressed their gratitude to DILG Region 6 during the turn-over of the knowledge materials.

RD Ingeniero hopes that the program will strengthen the partnership between the local government units, beneficiaries and stakeholders in advancing peace and development in the communities. #
