Dr. Wilma GiangoDr. Wilma C. Giango, chairman of the CTU Graduate School Extension Program, was awarded at the 25th anniversary of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) Region VII on August 11, 2016.

BJMP VII   recognizes Dr. Giango’s support to the agency’s various programs geared toward humane safekeeping and development of inmates.

Gender and Development (GAD)  Extension Services has been  conducting culinary  skills development training to the male and female inmates at Cebu City Jail in  Barangay  Kalunasan.

Dr. Giango is well aware of the impact the initiative has on the  economy of the country especially that self-employment is envisioned once inmates reintegrate in society  after serving their  sentence.

“The participants are made aware of the economic significance of the series of activities.  They can be self-sufficient through  providing opportunities  that  enhance their abilities.They are given hope  once they leave the prison as they could be entrepreneurs ready to serve the needs of the industry.”

Regional Director JCSUPT  Allan S. Iral and Officer-in-Charge JCSUPT  Serafin P. Barreto Jr. were among those who extended their appreciation to the efforts of Dr. Giango during the ceremony.

She  has sustained the university’s responsibility in  making the community  progressive, as she transforms the mindset of inmates  through— enhancing  the capability, efficiency, effectiveness and equity among target beneficiaries in agriculture, forestry, fishery, and industry; promoting  functional linkages among government and  non-government organizations; maintaining   good public relations; reducing  the number of unskilled workers; and conducting  technical assistance to depressed barangays.
