TESDA Zambo Norte conducts livelihood training

By Franklin P. Gumapon

Dipolog City (18 October) -- Twenty-four members of the Kalipunan ng Liping Pilipina (KALIPI) and some soldiers of the Philippine Army’s 55th Infantry Battalion based in Mutia town have recently completed a five-day training on Christmas décor making and food processing conducted by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).

Ms. Merlyn C. Santillana, Municipal Social Welfare and Development Officer and concurrent Community Training and Employment Coordinator of Mutia, said the training was designed to equip barangay folks with certain skills to help them start some livelihood activities using indigenous materials.

Mutia mayor Arthur Tenorio also lauded the enthusiasm demonstrated by the participants in learning new skills both in handicraft making and food processing.

The participants were able to make squash into different food products such puto squash, gulaman, squash candy, catsup and noodles.

With the new knowledge and skills in handicraft making and food processing, Tenorio was optimistic that the participants would be able to find new source of income.

In a related development, TESDA has also given free Skills Assessment Examination to 45 employees of the municipal government and residents of Mutia who wished to have a certificate of competency, a passport for possible employment abroad. (PIA) [top]
