BALINGASAG, Misamis Oriental -- Forty six members of the Higaonon tribe completed a month-long basic computer literacy training (CLT) here spearheaded by the Philippine Army.
Lt. Janelle Diaz, spokesperson of the Army’s 58th Infantry Battalion, said Monday the program aims to provide basic computer literacy for the lumads or indigenous peoples in Balingasag.
Datu Cesar G. Asapon, a representative of the indigenous people in Balingasag, expressed his gratitude to the sponsors of the training.
“This only shows that the military is one of the agencies of the government that look into the future of our tribal brothers,” he said in the vernacular.
Diaz said the CLT was conducted in cooperation with the Army’s 403rd Infantry Brigade, 4th Infantry Division, the local government unit of Balingasag, the Technical Education Skills Development-Misamis Oriental, and the Department of Education through the Alternative Learning System.
