This activity re-emphasizes DTI 12 Regional Director (RD) Jude Constatine S. Jaugan’s recurring message to encourage the local communities, most especially the Indigenous Peoples (IP) Youth, to continue learning and in the process, create businesses that will not only enable them to learn new skills but also help the local economy.

The members of the association participated in the 2-day activity which enabled them to produce fruit trays and baskets made of rattan. The training was facilitated by Mr. Alvin Andilon, resource speaker from Mafiun Kesaunutay Cooperative, along with Chieftain Willy Tumbao.

The IP for Youth Association of Pamantingan is also the NSB Beneficiary of the Negosyo Serbisyo sa Livelihood Seeding Program of 2021. A total of 20 participants attended the activity.
