IPEACE geared towards productive communities

ALABEL, Sarangani (June 24, 2020) – (from left) Mayor Vic Paul Salarda; Secretary Isidro Lapeña, Director General of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA); and Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon attend as guests of honor during the launching of Indigenous People Empowered as Agripreneurs towards a Collective End (IPEACE) program on June 23 at Purok New Bohol, Barangay Alegria. Salarda and Solon thanked Secretary Lapeña for having Sarangani as one of the pilot areas to launch the IPEACE program. “This is being done sa lahat ng regions para maipaabot natin yung serbisyo ng gobyerno sa ating mga katutubo dahil kailangan ito nila and I am very happy kasi nakita ko dito sa Sitio Pait (Alegria) na marami ng tanim doon and that’s why we have this IPEACE kasi kailangan lang talagang maturuan pa yung ating IPs kung paano maging productive yung lupa nila,” Lapeña said. “Sa panahon ng Covid ngayon, ang priority ng gobyerno is food production through agriculture talaga next of course to health,” he added.
