AQD signs new pact with DAR

The new year brings with it new collaborators to AQD.

Last January 22, AQD signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), as represented by Regional Director Alexis Arsenal, at AQD's main station in Tigbauan, Iloilo.

The MOU will cover the development of different Agrarian Reform Communities (ARC) in the province of Iloilo. DAR will assist in preparing the plan for the identified area; provide data relative to program implementation, beneficiaries and area; and provide other financial, technical, social and physical infrastructure services. AQD on the other hand will assist DAR in providing technical assistance to agrarian reform beneficiaries; develop programs and enterprise development capabilities; and provide resource persons, trainers, technical specialists and extension workers during project development and implementation.

The MOU will be in effect for 5 years, and will be supplemented by Letters of Understanding, which will document specific terms and conditions on the agreed projects.
