MDG-F youth jobs programme transitions to Filipino management


COTABATO CITY, Philippines - The foreign-assisted Joint Programme for Youth Employment and Migration (JP-YEM) has relinquished its projects in Maguindanao province to the office of Gov. Esmael Mangudadatu, who in turn, shall continue its implementation in the towns under his jurisdiction.

The JP-YEM’s sponsors include the Spanish government; the United Nations; the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority; The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration; the Department of Labor and Employment; the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration; and the Department of Education.

The symbolic turn over rite, jointly initiated by Ruth Honculada-Georget, who is programme director of JP-YEM, and Mangudadatu, was held Tuesday at the municipal gymnasium of Buluan town in Maguindanao.

The JP-YEM, under the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) Fund, was started two years ago, as a pilot initiative of the DOLE and the United Nations Country Team in four areas in the Philippines --- Masbate, Antique, Maguindanao and Agusan del Sur.
