With the end goal to enhance the effectiveness of CSOs in Local Development, the Provincial Government of Aurora in collaboration with the DILG Aurora led the Capacity Development Program for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in Local Special Bodies (LSBs) on October 6, 2022 at the Aurora Trading Center, Baler, Aurora.
Governor Christian M. Noveras opened the activity by inspiring CSOs in the Province of Aurora to participate and help fill the gaps of government: “Mas malalim ang inyong pagiisip at pagunawa. Kayo ang magiging tagapagtangol ng mga sektor.”
The program included modules presented by the Department of Agriculture (DA) Region III Office, PPDC/CSO Desk Officer Armida Palispis, DILG Provincial Director Ener Cambronero, LGOO V Maricar Janice Perez, LGOO II Reyner Buenconsejo, and closed with final remarks from CTL Ariel Espinosa.
As a result, the organizations learned about the DA’s CSO Accreditation process, the Local Development Councils, Local School Board, and Local Health Board in order to be active participants in their community’s development.
