Journalistic writing workshop for IP studes held in Pagadian

By Adrienne Natalie Ebillo

PAGADIAN CITY - A two-day journalistic writing workshop for Indigenous Peoples (IP) students has started today at Chandler Suites.

The activity, which is attended by 25 IP students and 10 personnel of the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP)-9, began with an opening program followed by a lecture on newswriting.

In his welcome message, Engr. Dave Lampayan said, “this program will help you enhance your capability in writing and give you an opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills.”

Speaking on behalf of Regional Director Woy Lim P. Wong, Ms. Margarita Baya, chief, Administrative and Finance Division, NCIP-9, encouraged the participants, who are mostly Educational Assistance Program (EAP) grantees, to study hard to reach their dreams saying “it’s up to you to either fly low or fly high.”

This activity has been spearheaded by NCIP-9 in partnership with the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) and Embassy of the United States of America with the theme, “IP Youth for Climate Change Adaptation and Peace Promotion.”
