BALANGA CITY, Bataan—-The Bataan Peninsula State University (BPSU) provided agriculture training to persons deprived of liberty (PDLs) inside Bataan District Jail.
“We recently held graduation for PDLs who studied agriculture conducted by BPSU”, said Jail Superintendent Andrew Tauli, Bataan District Jail warden.
“They were taught hydrophonics and urban farming”, he said.
The agriculture training was headed by Dr. Bernadeth Gabor, BPSU Dean of College of Technology.
Through the leadership of BPSU President Dr. Greg Rodis, the university continuously conducts its extension programs inside the district jail to help PDLs.
A laudable project of the university inside the jail is the “Hope Behind Bars” now a full-blown program with about 50 fellow volunteer-educators providing inmates with skills trainings.
“We want to help the community through our extension projects”, earlier Rodis said.
