The Extension Management Office (EMO) conducted community needs assessment on May 26 at One Ynares Village, Baras, Rizal. It took more than two years for the EMO to engage with the community and undertake this activity due to pandemic restrictions.
One Ynares Village is a resettlement location for informal settlers all over Manila. A short briefing was held at the National Housing Authority (NHA) office with their Senior Community Development Officer, Mike Marzan, together with other representatives of the agency and barangay leaders. A short briefing was held before the teams were deployed to various areas and blocks to conduct the survey. Each team was assisted with one barangay leader with the aim of visiting and collecting responses from three hundred (300) households.
Simultaneously, the Community Relations and Outreach Services team led by Chief Airavie Austria, together with CROS Coordinators, held an outreach activity at the Baras Pinugay Elementary School. Participating in the activity are the children of the families residing in the relocation site of the NHA.
The EMO Team headed by the Chief of the Extension and Community Linkages Center, Dr. Henry B. Prudente, together with the extension chiefs, Asst. Prof. Zenaida S. Bonaobra (Monitoring and Evaluation) and Asst. Prof. Raquel Arevalo (Extension Support) spearheaded this CNA. Coordinators and faculty extensionists from the main campus are also part of the team.
One of the missions of EMO is to ensure a community needs-based project or program. This should leave an impact to beneficiaries’ lives with the aid of a roster of experts from various colleges, campuses, and branches.
