Tarlac State University (TSU) College of Public Administration and Governance (CPAG) extended services at Tarlac City Jail Female Dormitory.
This is part of “Hiraya: Isang Landas Pasulong” which is a three-year skills training project of TSU CPAG Extension Program with the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP).
In his message, CPAG Dean Edwin Caoleng thanked the BJMP for the opportunity to be of service to the personnel of BJMP and Persons Deprived of Liberty (PDLs) under its custody.
“We are grateful for this opportunity to serve you and we hope that our program will create an impact on your lives once you go back to mainstream society and pass forward whatever good things you have brought with you,” Caoleng said.
Topics discussed include Hygiene 101, a basic hygiene training by Dr. Ethel Vital and Usapang Barbero, a hair cutting training by Edgar Macapagal.
For her part, Jail Warden Jail Senior Inspector Jessica Corpuz expressed her gratitude for the first of many outreach activities for PDLs as well as the BJMP personnel.
“We are so blessed to have this first long-term program with Tarlac State University in order to guarantee change among our persons deprived of liberty, so that when they go back to their communities, there will be no discrimination rather acceptance to them,” Corpuz said.
Moreover, CPAG distributed hygiene kits, tumblers, hand fans, seven electric fans, and three exhaust fans to about 72 PDLs.
The event was organized by CPAG Graduate School Master of Public Administration 501 Class supervised by CPAG Faculty Roswald Fermin.(CLJD/GLSB-PIA 3)
