As part of their preparation for reintegration into mainstream society, around 25 former rebels (FRs) are now undertaking livelihood skills training at the 4th Mobile Force Platoon headquarters in Nabua, Camarines Sur.

The training is being conducted by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA)-Bicol and includes a workshop on assembling electronic products, according to Maj. Malu Calubaquib, spokesperson of Police Regional Office 5 (PRO5).

She explained that the government’s Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) provided training to former members of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA).

“E-CLIP is a program of the government that aims to give direction and assistance to those who want to go back to the folds of the law,” Calubaquib said.

She said that the FRs will become valuable members of the community as a result of the new skills and information they will gain.

“The intervention given by the government is not just for them but also for their families and the community itself,” Calubaquib said.

The Philippine National Police (PNP) will continue to assist surrendered insurgents in starting a respectable and peaceful life with their families, according to Brig. Gen. Jonnel Estomo, PRO5 regional director.
