As part of the Department of Interior and Local Government’s (DILG) ‘MASA MASID’ program, the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) is conducting a five-day barangay-based rehabilitation program at Narra Centerpoint, Narra, Palawan this February 13-17. MASA MASID or ‘Mamamayang ayaw sa Anomalya, Mamamayang Ayaw sa Iligal na Droga’ is a barangay-based anti-criminality, anti-corruption, and anti-illegal drugs program which encourages multi-sectoral partnership to intensify volunteerism at the community level.
Participants to the said program are from Narra, Brooke’s Point, El Nido, Roxas and Taytay, along with a team composed of personnel from the Bureau’s national and regional headquarters, as well as local stakeholders.
The five-day program will train participants on emotional, intellectual, spiritual, vocational and survival skills. It also aims to eliminate antisocial behaviors, enhance employment productivity and encourage adoption of pro-social values.
As of press time, the concerned agencies are still coordinating with the local government for the schedules of the program in Palawan.
