Homemakers, pre-schoolers complete rural improvement programs


ANTIPOLO CITY: The City Government of Antipolo, through its City Agriculture Office (CAO) led the completion and recognition ceremonies of some 400 pre-schoolers and 100 homemakers, mostly mothers from the seven Rural Improvement Club (RIC)-Children’s Center in various barangays in this city. The CAO supervised the barangay-based RICs who were among rural based organizations that were engaged in informal training, education and knowledge-sharing to parents and children on how to cope with basic needs. Proper food handling and basic nutrition and sanitation were imparted to the mothers to ensure their children’s health and wellness in view of the proliferation of “street food.” The 100 homemakers completed trainings on food preparations, home management practices and income-generating projects such as making garden containers and processing of “nata de coco” or coconut gel. City Agriculturist Dr. Cleotildo de Asis officiated the recognition rites of the 100 homemakers in Abuyod, Barangay San Jose in this city.
