Skill development for OSY
On December 12, 2016, 25 out-of-school-youth (OSY) IPs got their certificates for completing the six-month residential programme of the Palawan Conservation Corps (PCC), a non-government organization catering to OSY through the conduct of several trainings for skill development such as capacity building, environment conservation, organic farming, alternative learning system, among others.
During the graduation ceremony held at the Rural Agricultural Centre in Puerto Princesa, PCC Executive Director Cherry de Dios lauded the graduates for finishing the programme. She also expressed her gratitude to PSFI for its indelible support to the developments of IPs.
Jomar Reyes, the batch valedictorian, commended PSFI for opening opportunities to enhance their skills. He further expressed that what they gained in the programme will help them provide for their family needs.
The partnership between PCC and PSFI started in 2015. A total of 44 OSY IPs have graduated since.
