NNC Caraga to conduct Nutriskwela Training

BUTUAN CITY -- The National Nutrition Council (NNC) Caraga will conduct a 4-day Nutriskwela Training from October 24 to 27, 2022 in the local government units of General Luna and Del Carmen, Siargao Island, Surigao del Norte to be participated by the  Nutriskwela Community Radio stations with 5 representatives from each station. 

The training is designed to equip the radio station personnel and select members of the Community Radio Councils (CRC) with skills and knowledge  for the timely  delivery of  relevant nutrition, health, education, and development information. This can help reduce the prevalence of various forms of malnutrition and high malnutrition rate in some areas in the region.

There will be four modules with different topics to be discussed during the training, namely:

  1. Understanding Community Radio and Nutriskwela radio program
  2. Community Radio Production and Operations
  3. Community Radio Production
  4. Hands-on training

Caraga Region has 3 Nutriskwela Community Radio Stations: Radyo Kaagapay in Sibagat, Agusan del Sur, Radyo Kabakhawan in Del Carmen, Surigao del Norte, and Radyo Kinaiyahan in Malimono, Surigao del Norte. 

Nutriskwela Community Radio Network Program was launched last 2008 to address the problem of hunger and malnutrition in the Philippines and now has 50 Nutriskwela Community Radio stations across the country including non-profit, non-partisan community radio stations. The program aims to empower communities through dissemination of correct and up-to-date nutrition and health information, as well as educational and developmental information from all relevant sectors of the community, government agencies, and non-government organizations.
