20 Ifugaos train on haircutting

by Vency D. Bulayungan

Lagawe, Ifugao (15 August) -- In line with government's thrust to provide employment to the unemployed, the provincial government in coordination with the Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) conducted a 16 day training on haircutting and perming here.

With 20 participants from the different municipalities here and funded by the provincial government, the training aims to enhance the skills of the unemployed so they can put up their own business or be employed in existing parlors.

TESDA Provincial Director Ronald Ibay, said their office provided certified trainors from Baguio and Mt. Province.

Margaret Binhaon, one four trainees who was tapped by a local employer, is very grateful because the training paved the way for her employment. "I graduated from the training more confident, armed and equipped to start what I have learned," she said.

As a plain housewife, it is very difficult for a family to source out money for our daily needs but from now on I will be able to help my husband earn for our living, Binhaon said with a smile.

Binhaon also disclosed that aside from the income she will acquire from the job, she will now be cutting the hairs of his husband and four boys who have their haircuts every month thereby minimizing expenses.

Ibay said that with the success of the training, TESDA will conduct phase II which is on hair bleaching dying and scalp treatment. (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
