Roxas City to launch "Sulong Kabuhayan"
by A. Lumaque
Roxas City (26 October) -- A community-based skills training that will give participants the opportunity for local and overseas employment will be launched by the Roxas City government in November.
The project dubbed "Sulong Kabuhayan" is geared towards helping jobseekers become competent by undergoing accredited training programs offered by concerned national government agencies.
"It will be piloted in Barangay Lanot but we are studying the model for possible replication to other barangays," said Roxas City administrator Rey Cordenillo.
The initiative is in line with the city government's livelihood generation agenda aimed at generating opportunities to facilitate employment.
The city government has also established a Public Service Employment Office (PESO) which has been considered as employment driver because of its facilitation services that had deployed Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) and placed jobseekers to work in various local firms. (PIA) [top]
