DAR accredits PRRM as Service Provider

BY NILO V. MANANGAN

The Philippine Rural Reconstruction Movement (PRRM) is among the 38 private organizations/NGOs accredited by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) as Professional Service Providers in its latest review released last 10 February 2012. Eighteen (18) academic institutions are also included in the pool. (http://www.dar.gov.ph/)

For its Program Beneficiary Development (PBD) Program, DAR taps service providers to assist ARB organizations (ARBOs) through the rendition of professional services which include: Agricultural Extension, Business Development Services (BDS), and Impact Assessments.

PRRM continues to assist organizations of small farmers, fishers, women and youth in implementing sustainable development programs and projects. Its involvement with the DAR will also build on its experiences in community education and policy advocacy work on sustainable agriculture, social enterprise development, and organizational development and management, among others.
