Government interns receive stipends
Recruits of the Government Internship Program (GIP) in the Cordillera who were under the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) have finally received their stipends for the second half of their 52-day stint in government operations last year.
The release of payment, which was delayed due to realignment of funds, started in the last week of December 2012 and continued in all the provinces of the Cordillera early this month.
Regional Director Leonardo Reynoso said the Department is pleased that the funds that have long been awaited has been distributed to the youth interns. He added that the release of payments had erased doubts that the stipends will no longer be released.
