Sorsogon farmers undergo co-op training

WEB R5 REGL policy making photoFarmer-leaders and officers from eight agrarian reform beneficiaries organizations (ARBOs) in Sorsogon underwent a three-day policy-making seminar to enhance and strengthen the existing policies of their ARBOs.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Leonito M. Gaveria said the training implemented under the Agrarian Production Credit Program (APCP), delved on policy formulation and its role in the ARBOs.

“Policy is important in every organization. It serves as a guide and direction to avoid conflict. It is also important that every policy is being reviewed and monitored to conform with the current situation and needs to its members,” said Gaveria.

Training facilitator Lucia Vitug of the APCP said, “we taught them the role of policies and policy formulation in the organization; the factors to be considered and principles of good policy formulation. We ended the training with a short workshop on policy-making.”

The three-day seminar on policy-making were attended by farmer-members of Mayon Farmers’ Association (MAFA), Bangate Multipurpose Cooperative (BAMUCO), Capuy Basud Multipurpose Cooperative (CABAMUCO), Monbon Farmers’ Association (MONFA), A. Bonifacio Farmers and Irrigators’ Association (ABFIA), Bigkis can mga Paraoma sa Bulan, Bigkis Cooperative in Irosin, Bagacay Contod Irrigators’ Assocition (BACIA) and Ariman Tabi Buenavista Irrigators’ Association (ATABIA).
