Alleviating poverty thru IPEACE

ALABEL, Sarangani (June 24, 2020) – Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon welcomes Secretary Isidro Lapeña, Director General of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), during the launching of Indigenous People Empowered as Agripreneurs towards a Collective End (IPEACE) program on June 23 at Purok New Bohol, Barangay Alegria. IPEACE was formed to transform Indigenous People (IP) communities into integrated food production sites; develop self-reliant, resilient and sustainable IP communities; attain food security for a balanced and equitable resource distribution and dynamic economic, livelihood and income opportunities to produce sustainable communities; and end insurgency. The program was also in line with President Rodrigo Duterte’s objectives to alleviate poverty, address prevailing economic and social issues and develop stable employment conditions in all regions in the country.
