DAR Conducts Paralegal Training For Farmer-Beneficiaries

news regional 2 nov. 5 2015Twenty-five farmer-beneficiaries from the 3rd, 4th and 5th Districts of Iloilo Province were trained as paralegals to help the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in resolving and settling agrarian disputes and fast-tracking land acquisition and distribution under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).  

“The farmers were trained on the basic knowledge and skills on agrarian reform laws and paralegal skills which they will need in their work as farmer paralegals in their respective communities,” said Regional Director Stephen Leonidas.

The Farmer Paralegals Program of DAR seeks to enhance the capacity of farmers, the members of the Barangay Agrarian Reform Council and other Agrarian Reform Advocates towards an effective partnership in implementing and fast-tracking land distribution under the CARP.  

“We are encouraging our farmer-participants to recruit their fellow farmers to join in the formation program. More hands would mean more workers and eventually more will be achieved and resolved,” said Leonidas. 

The resource persons in the training were Ludy Cruz of DAR Central Office, Harriet A. Loot, Mylene S. Alviar, Johnny C. Vicentino, Antonio Z. Mocero, Jr., Susan G. Agustin, Ma. Yvonne E. Senobin, and Ernie T. Tumlos.  (Yvonne Senobin)
