The College of Management in CTU Barili, in coordination with the campus’ office of extension services, successfully launched its extension banner program, Project KA-SABA, on November 22, 2022.
Project KA-SABA an acronym for KAKAYAHAN, KAALAMAN AT KABUHAYAN PARA SA BAYAN, will incorporate various community extension projects for technology and management. It aims to answer the need to provide research-based extension projects that cater to the community’s condition per the 2030 agenda of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and mandate No Poverty, Zero Hunger, and Decent Work and Economic Growth.
In his opening remarks, Dr. Romeo C. Lepiten, CTU Barili Campus Director, emphasized the importance of the community, especially the women sector and the elderly.
‘Let us not forget our community, especially the women sector and the senior citizens, because they are still productive. They should be given a livelihood, so they will not depend only on what is provided. It is what CTU hopes for, extension services, training, then technology transfer.’
The project comes to realization through the collaboration of the College of Technology and Management faculty members. It envisions its workforce and community recipients to become innovative, resilient, skilled beneficiaries and extensionists through sustained collaboration with the community and other stakeholders in technology and management.
The event was witnessed by the CTU Barili Campus officials, CTM faculty, staff and students, community representatives, and guests.
