3rd batch of sewing craft training opens in Kalinga

by L. Lopez

Tabuk City, Kalinga (28 July) -- The third batch this year for a two -month training on basic sewing craft started last July 14 until September 14 at the training center of the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO).

Bambi Sabado of the PSWDO said the trainees will take courses on basic dressmaking and tailoring, under the Productivity Skills Capability Building Program (PSCBP) of DSWD. The center has produced 35 graduates from the two batches this year.

Project Trainor Precy Awis said the initial group of 9 trainees who are all women come from different places in the province and mostly belong to low-income families.

Asked why almost all who take the training are women, Awis explained that there are other trainings now offered for men like welding and metal artworks by TESDA.

As wholesome development program, PSCBP trainees are also provided self-enhancement modular sessions to improve their total well-being as a person. Here, social welfare services are inculcated, Sabado said.

Some graduates of the training have in fact landed in jobs abroad, while most of them are self-employed, here, she added.

The program adopts the multi-lateral approach involving other government agencies in the training like the Provincial Health Office, which provides trainors on health and maternal-child care enhancement.

The program started in the province in 1997 upon completion of the training center which is equipped with 20 units foot-operated sewing machines, 20 high speed electric sewing machines and 10 special machines for botton holes and zigzag edging.

The training center was funded by the Japan International Cooperating Agency (JICA) program. (PIA Kalinga) [top]
