"Among the inputs we learned, the most important to me was when it was emphasized that a contract should be considered and studied well. Also, knowing that once a contract gets notarized, it will become a public document was a significant reminder,” shared Rolando Montera, owner of Vine's Restaurant and Catering Services of Bayugan City.

Further reflecting on what they have learned, Montera noted that in a business, the employer should always consider preparing a contract for his/her employees, specifying clear terms and conditions.

This last input and mentoring session was held at the Provincial Learning Center, Gov. D.O. Plaza Government Center, Prosperidad, this province. The mentees will present their Business Improvement Plans to a panel of experts on November 10, 2017. (DTI-Agusan del Sur/PIA-Agusan del Sur)

Cebuano News: POPCOM gidala ang programa didto sa hardcourt

Ni Bryan Jay F. Ceballos
BUTUAN CITY, Nob. 7 - Ang Commission on Population (POPCOM)-Caraga nakig-alayon sa lokal nga panggamhanan sa mga syudad ug probinsiya sa Caraga Region alang sa pagpahigayon sa usa ka open basketball league ubos sa programa sa KATROPA (Kalalakihang Tumutugon sa Responsibilidad at Obligasyon para sa Pamilya) on Hardcourt. Ang katuyoan niini mao nga mapakaylap ang programa ngadto sa mga kalalakihan aron sila maaghat sa pagsalmot sa hisgutanang pagka-responsableng ginikanan ug pagplano sa pamilya.

Ang KATROPA on Hardcourt usa ka adbokasiya sa POPCOM alang sa duha ka programa nga gilangkuban sa Responsible Parenthood-Family Planning (RP-FP) ug Adolescent Health Development (AHD) isip kabahin sa Philippine Population Management Program (PPMP). Ang maong estratehiya dili lamang sa ming-apil nga tim/koponan hinunoa ngadto usab sa kadaghanan/publiko nga nitambong pinaagi sa lakbit nga oryentasyon, salida, ug pag-apod-apod og mga balasahon.

Ang torneyo sa basketball karong tuiga gibahin ngadto sa duha ka liga. Ang Surigao nga liga giapilan sa mga tim/koponan gikan sa mga syudad sa Surigao ug Butuan, ug mga probinsya sa Surigao del Norte ug Agusan del Norte nga mahitabo karong Nobyembre 10, 2017 sa alas kwatro sa kahaponon (4:00 PM) didto sa Surigao del Norte Provincial Gymnasium, ug sa Nobyembre 11, 2017 sa alas dose sa udto (12:00 NN) didto sa Surigao City Gymnasium.

Samtang, ang liga sa Agusan paga-kompetensyahan sa mga syudad sa Bayugan ug Butuan, ug mga probinsya sa Agusan del Sur ug Agusan del Norte karon Nobyembre 17, 2017 sa alas kwatro sa kahaponon (4:00 PM) didto sa Bayugan City Gymnasium ug Nobyembre 18, 2017 sa alas dose sa udto (12:00 NN) didto sa San Francisco Municipal Gymnasium.

Ang POPCOM pinaagi sa iyang programa sa mga batan-on naglaum sa pagpalambo sa ilang positibong kinaiya, pagbaton og himsog nga istelo sa pagkinabuhi (healthy lifestyle), ug mahimong responsable sa ilang sekswalidad. Kini nagtinguha usab nga ang mga batan-on mamahimong kampeyon nga tigpama-ba sa adbokasiya nga dunay kalabutan sa ilang mga katungdanan ug responsibilidad nga mamahimong maayong amahan ug bana, anak ug modelo sa katilingban.

Sumala ni POPCOM-Caraga Regional Director, Alexander A. Makinano, “Ang KATROPA on Hardcourt usa ka abli nga torneyo sa basketball nga diin nangita nga mapataas ang lebel sa kaamguhan sa mga lalaki diha sa aktibong pagsalmot sa pagplano sa pamilya ug katilingbanong balaka nga diin kini unya mohubad sa maayong komunikasyon isip usa ka bana ug miembro sa katilingban”. Dugang niini, si RD Makinano miingon nga “ang kalalakihan kauban diha sa pagpanalipod ug pag-amuma sa mga kababayen-an aron mapasiguro ang luwas nga pagmabdos ug pagpanganak, ug paghatod og tinuod o tunhay nga kalamboan diha sulod sa pamilya/panimalay ug komunidad”.
