Tineg village officials participate in barangay dev't. planning workshop 

 BANGUED, Abra (PIA) -- Local officials of the remote barangays in the municipality of Tineg participate   in a 4-day Barangay Development Planning  workshop  spearheaded by  the Department of  the Interior and Local Government, Department of Social Welfare and Development with the Municipal Local Government Unit.

The first batch  is  composed of officials from the barangay Agsimao, Anayan, Naglibcan, Belaat, and Cogon who will have their training from September 18 to 21.  The second  batch  will participants from Apao, Alaoa, Caganayan, Lapat-Balantay and Lanec  will start training on  Sept. 25.

Participants are the barangay captains,  treasurers, secretaries, Barangay Sangguniang Kabataan chairperson, kagawad and people’s organization.

Tineg Municipal Local Government Operations Officer Janice Cristine Ton said the training  involves a series of workshops  for the  formulation  or enhancement of their Barangay Development Plan (BDP).

There  are also simulation exercises where the participants  will conduct an in-depth review of their goals and objectives indicated in their BDP. This ensures that its contents will directly address the needs of the community and its residents.

“This will update and develop their BDP dahil may mga barangays na matagal nang nagawa yung BDP nila, hindi pa sila ang official noon. So, first we need to ensure that our barangay local officials are trained by going through capacity building process,” she said. 

In an interview with Cogon Punong Barangay Jeremias Batawang, he said that the 4-day workshop is a substantial time for them to focus in the crafting of their own BDP.

 “Tututokan namin ang BDP sa workshop na ito dahil mahalaga ang mga programs and projects na kailangan naming i-prepare para sa barangay naming  especially sa Cogon, isa sa mga pinakamalayong barangay dito sa Abra,” he said.

Barangay Cogon is one of the isolated barangays of Tineg which takes several hours of trekking since  transportation is limited in the area. (JDP/CAGT – PIA CAR, Abra)
