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.
