Women’s club celebrates achievement day
The Rural Improvement Club (RIC) of Nueva Vizcaya celebrated “Achievement Day” on October 27 at the People’s Stage, Capitol together with the 4-H Club of the province aiming to empower rural women in sustainable agriculture.
Although most of the PLGU officials were not able to grace the programme, since it coincided with the PLGU Medical Mission at Ganao, Dupax del Sur, RIC women filled the day with songs and dances and were able to sell their livelihood products. Prizes were also given through raffle draws.
Food processing, crafting and sewing, fruits and vegetables farming are some of the livelihood activities of the RIC women. Bagabag RIC won the Best Table Bazaar.
Board Member Elma Lejao said, “It is nice to see rural women actively involved with RIC. In spite of what you have done in your localities, we hope that you can still contribute more and improve your livelihood.”
Shiela Ocumen of Villaverde was crowned “Ginang RIC 2017.” However, Junia Dinangwayan of Tiblac, Ambaguio is the “Ginang RIC Region 02” and will represent the region in the RIC National Convention at Puerto Princesa, Palawan next month.
RIC is being supported by the Provincial Agricultural Office. Barangay Kagawad Christie Sampaga of Bonfal Proper, Bayombong is the RIC Provincial President. #bg
