VIRAC, Catanduanes (PIA) – The Catanduanes Police Provincial Office (CATPPO) in partnership with the Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) launched Project Usap TaYoe last Monday and Tuesday, July 29-30, at Camp Francisco Camacho here.
According to Police Col. Paul F. Abay, provincial director of CATPPO, the program was envisioned to bring together various government agencies with the support of IPA and a research team from the University of California, Princeton and Damouth to make government services accessible and available to the youth.
He added that the project sought to utilize the “whole of the nation approach” in ending communist insurgency with PNP serving as orchestrator in coming up with a sustainable program that will benefit the out-of-school youth and make basic services more accessible to them.

In attendance were municipal local government operation officers, municipal social welfare officers, barangay captains and Sangguniang Kabataan chairmen from seven chosen municipalities of the province, namely, Panganiban, Viga, San Miguel, Baras, Bato, Virac and San Andres. (PIA5/Catanduanes)
