Diwalwal residents diversify livelihood through tech-voc

by JMD Abangan

Davao City (7 February) -- Gold-mine residents of Barangay Mt. Diwata are diversifying technical-vocational (tech-voc) interests from mainly jewelry-making to baking and pastries production.

TESDA Officer-in-Charge Provincial Director Elma A. Sudan of Compostela Valley said TESDA will be conducting a special session on baking and pastries production for 25 participants from Mt. Diwata.

Scheduled from February 18 to February 20, the training forms part of the intervention of TESDA provincial office aimed at providing alternative livelihood for Mt. Diwata residents.

It would be the first time that TESDA would be conducting the training at the Lamdag Panginabuhian which is the livelihood development center of Compostela Valley, Sudan said.

She however said that the provincial office of TESDA will continue to provide technical assistance on jewelry-making to help the provincial government attain its plan of staging Compostela Valley as the center of jewelry-making industry in Mindanao.

Meanwhile, Sudan said that majority of tech-voc assistance seekers are up for training on computer skills, computer hardware servicing and welding.

Along with this, Sudan has urged vocational schools in Compostela Valley to offer training on welding but she acknowledge the difficulty of the schools to put up training facilities.

"Nahihirapan kasi ang mga schools because it (welding) would require them to buy equipment," she said.

She said vocational schools in Compostela Valley are seeking assistance from local government officials so they can produce the necessary facilities to start offering training on welding. (PIA XI) [top]
