ATI7 briefs Tier 2 Program at Siquijor

Seventeen (17) Agricultural Extension Workers from the province of Siquijor actively participated the one-day briefing on the Increasing Agricultural Productivity Towards Food Security and Poverty Alleviation: EXTENSION SUPPORT TO THE TWENTY TWO PROVINCES WITH HIGHEST POVERTY INCIDENCE IN THE PHILIPPINES (ATI TIER 2 PROGRAM FOR 2017) last May 25, 2017 at the Conference Room of the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist, Helen, Larena, Siquijor.

The activity aimed to orient/brief the enumerators about the Tier 2 Program and for them to familiarize the content of the survey questionnaire.

The purpose of this project is to increase agricultural productivity of the 22 poorest provinces through provision of high-impact extension interventions while the expected outputs include: 1) Local Government Unit (LGU-AEWs) will be capacitated to provide extension services to farmers/fishers; 2) Farmers/fishers will be trained on improved and sustainable technologies; 3) Collaborations forged to provide extension and other support services; and 4) Information support and other extension support services will be provided to farmers/fishers.

Spearheading the activity is Engr. Jonathan O. Sumagang, Tier 2 Focal Person for Siquijor and was assisted by Ms. Merigine C. Otara, Tier 2 Focal Person for Negros Oriental.

what our clients say...

“I am so blessed to have been a part of this training. As the memorandum has been circulated to our school; i had this feeling of uncertainty whether i will be able to produce the desired output because i had a zero knowledge on IEC production. Since, our school is one of the recipient of the adopt-a-school program and being the teacher in-charged; i did not hesitate to participate in this training because for me, this will help us in designing our advocacy materials especially that our school is among that will offer senior high school. With my participation, my expectation wasn't futile since ATI-RTC 7 equipped us not just on the material things that we need but on the knowledge and skills that we can apply. To ATI, thank you so much, more power and more collaborations from you. To my co-participants who are very supportive and very participative, until next time.”
