ATI-RTC 8

Sharing is the watchword

I have been inspired by caring people, helpful people, thoughtful people.

Value for Money, Shopping for Health

Inspired by an extension activity designed to curb obesity implemented by the Cornell University Cooperative Extension (CUCE) in New York City, ATI-RTC 8 implemented a similar activity under its Organic Agriculture (OA) program to educate mothers on the value of money with the food they prepared. The activity, which took place in Calag-itan, Hinunangan, Southern Leyte on March 23, 2015 was dubbed "Value for Money: Shopping for Health".

It's what we do

Sir Jim: Give example of a topic for your blog...

We: Extension...

Sir Jim: Extension of what?

We: It's what we do...

Funny but this happened during our training on blogging and photography with our resource person Mr. Jaime Ramon 'Jim' Paredes of Apo Hiking Society. We were used to having resource persons who are familiar with what we do that we just assumed the rest would also know, which include Sir Jim.

Nonetheless, let me tell many others who don't know who we are and what we are.

For the second time, "accidentally"

In my blog "Life according to Jim", one of the life lessons I mentioned was 'be accident prone'. I was thinking when would it happen to me, until I read "Not Once But Twice" did I realize that it already did. Photography always fascinates me ever since I can remember. I always look for ways of improving what little I know of this craft.

Life according to Jim

 Trainings for e-Extension Coordinators of ATI are always exciting because they are usually held in different venues. Recently, I have three (3) reasons to be excited: 1) it is held in Coron, Palawan, one of my wish-to-visit-place; 2) it is about blogging and photography, which is one of my most-requested-training since I became an e-Extension Coordinator; and 3) the most exciting is our resource person Mr. Jaime Ramon Paredes, the Jim Paredes of Apo Hiking Society, one of my favorite singing groups of all time.
 

Keep on keeping on

In our 2013 highlights of accomplishment I wrote, "Super-typhoon Yolanda may have stripped us of the fruits of our labours but not our commitment to make a difference in the lives of our stakeholders and to help our region rise from the shambles.  It may have washed out landmarks of our successes but not our learning and experiences we shared with fellow extension agents, farmers and fishers, women and youth".
