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.
