Gov't launches TVET-ALIVE Part 2 in Northern Mindanao

Cagayan De Oro City (22 March) -- The government has launched the Technical Vocational Education and Training with Arabic Language and Islamic Value Education (TVET with ALIVE) Part 2 Program which integrates livelihood skills training component for Muslims in Northern Mindanao.

The project is undertaken jointly by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and the Department of Education (DepEd). The launching was held here over the weekend.

Northern Mindanao TESDA Regional Director Edwin C. Gatinao said the program is an "opportunity for TESDA to reach out to the greater number of our Muslim brothers and sisters in the region."

The program is initially eyeing the provinces of Bukidnon, Lanao del Norte and Misamis Oriental.

The TVET with ALIVE Part 2 Program aims to produce holistic Muslim workers imbued with better appreciation of the Muslim culture, ability to speak the Arabic language and endowed with employable skills to better prepare them for local and overseas jobs.

In a meeting with the Asatidz (Arabic term for teachers) in the region last March 7, Brenda Furagganan, national program coordinator of TESDA ALIVE, together with Director Gatinao, discussed the implementation details of the livelihood skills training program which also aims to uplift the welfare of the Filipino Muslims, specifically those residing in urban areas, through socially and economically productive activities.

Gatinao expressed his full support to the program and targeted for a 100 percent implementation in Northern Mindanao this year. (muc/PIA-Caraga) [top]
