Davao Oriental Rebel Returnees Acquire ICT Training

The Provincial Government of Davao Oriental has tapped the Tech4d Center, a computer-based educational mechanism under the Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT), to provide former NPA rebels with new tech skills.

Ms. Amelia S. Dean, DICT acting regional head for operations and coordination services, said the center provides delivery channels of “information and communication technology (ICT)-enabled services and government services to reach rural areas.”  “We are nationwide. We also serve as training hub to educate the public on digital literacy and to raise awareness on the importance of ICT,” stated Ms. Dean.

The beneficiaries are former members of the New People’s Army who are staying at the Davao Oriental Provincial Government’s Happy Home, a halfway house for those who have surrendered and laid down their arms.

Ms. Dean said the Tech4d Center provides programs like English competency, financial literacy, research, farming technologies, and also offers online job opportunities, business networking, and provides training for those who want online jobs.
