ICT/BPO Sector Pushes for Impact Sourcing in Provinces

ICT/BPO Training Programs in Rural Philippines

In a press conference, Lizabel G. Holganza, President of the National ICT Confederation of the Philippines (NICP), said they are working on several programs that can help rural areas take part in the opportunities from the ICT and business process outsourcing (BPO) sectors. The executive is hoping to achieve this through rural impact sourcing. The program is expected to equip particular underprivileged segments such as out-of-school youth and undergraduates with the basic skills needed in ICT-related tasks.

Holganza added that these training programs are also a great way to discourage people in doing malicious or unlawful acts because they are kept busy.

Impact sourcing is expected to bring communities together and make way for income-generating opportunities which could then lead to changes and growth to individuals, and the nation as a whole. By getting employed in the ICT-BPO sector, they no longer have to leave their communities.

One of the key regions eyed for this program is the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM).
