Yolanda Victims Trained As Agricultural Extension Workers

25SEP2015. "Transforming Farmscape through Diversified and Integrated Farming". That's the formal title of a training workshop attended by 30 beneficiaries from Leyte and Western Samar selected by Plan International under the ADB JFPR Grant 9175 who will become what we call Agricultural Extension Workers at their respective communities.

This intensive 5-day live-in seminar ended today at the Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) inside the Visayas State University in Baybay, Leyte, where participants received their certificates after doing a rigorous action planning together with their respective LGU's Agricultural Technologists and Community Development Facilitators (CDFs) from Plan Inernational.

Next step, these 'graduates' will become trainers of their fellow residents on more productive farming techniques and approaches that includes awareness of calamity resilient areas, products or activities.
