Marginalized women undergo livelihood training

by L. Lopez

TABUK CITY (8 September) -- Their being marginalized did not bar them from being productive members of society after graduating from the livelihood training jointly provided by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and this city government.

About 50 women from Kalipi- Tabuk Chapter, Malin-awa Disabled Center, senior citizens and SEA Kaunlaran recipients finished candy making training and are now into a small scale business for a living.

The candy making training makes use of locally available fruits and vegetables as raw materials like papaya, pineapple, santol, carrots and sayote.

As joint activity, the city government provided the funds, while trainors came from TESDA and DOST.

The trainor, Gilda Baliang of Elda's Food Production encouraged the participants to engage in business as she also trained them in packaging techniques.

More marginalized sectors in the province are given livelihood trainings under various government programs in line with President Arroyo's crusade against poverty, hunger and malnutrition.

This is the second batch of Kalipi members given candy making training by the city government, this year.

Recently, another group of women from barangays Balong and Cabaruan finished wine making from their fellow women, BITICK association.

Government livelihood programs are now in full blast with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) ushering organizations into micro-finance lending institutions, reaching out to poor clients in the province.

After gaining livelihood skills, beneficiaries can organize and avail of lending programs from government small funding institutions at low interest rate. (PIA Kalinga) [top]
