PHilMech turns over Smart TVs for Info-hub

A total of 18 units of 40” Smart TVs were donated to model FCAs in Luzon during the turnover ceremony of the Smart TV for RCEF-Rice Extension Services Program held last December 20, 2022 in PHilMech, Science City of Muñoz, Nueva Ecija.

The donation of Smart TVs is part of RCEF-RESP Info-hub which aims to offer easy to access information, education, and communication materials (IECM) and knowledge, sharing, and learning activities (KSL) on RCEF, rice production, postharvest and mechanization to model FCAs nationwide.

Around 18 model FCAs from CAR, Region I, II, III, IV-A and IV-B attended the ceremony.

Dr. Ofero A Capariño, OIC, Assistant Director challenged each cooperative to use the smart TVs in enhancing their knowledge and become competitive. He also stated that PHilMech will continue to provide knowledge that will help them to progress and prosper as an FCA.

During the ceremony, consultant Dr. Rodolfo Estigoy discussed the process of conducting KSL activities using the Smart TV and its importance to the FCAs.

“Nagpapasalamat kami sa PHilMech para sa TV na natanggap namin dahil ito ay makakatulong na mas matuto pa ang farmer-members namin tungkol sa RCEF at mechanization”, Mr. Rufino Nocedal, chairperson of Cupang West Multi-Purpose Cooperative said.

PHilMech also shared about their advocacy campaign for the youth which will become the first KSL activity of info-hubs.
