30 OSYs, 23 teachers in Nueva Vizcaya benefit from mining firm

QUEZON, Nueva Vizcaya (February 11) -- At least 30 out-of–school youths (OSYs) and 23 teachers have benefited from the assistance of a British-owned mining company in barangay Runruno here.

Dr. Ernie Mendoza, MTL Philippines, Inc. Senior Vice President for Corporate Affairs said the 30 former OSYs are now employed as accredited welders at the Hanjin Shipping Company in Subic City, Zambales while the 23 teachers were absorbed by the company who are now involved in teaching primary, daycare, elementary and high school students in this town.

"The welders are now sending their salaries to their parents and their parents are delightfully happy because they can now have a decent way of living. The teachers are actually absorbed by the company because the provincial government could no longer subsidize their salaries," Mendoza told PIA.

The former OSYs, he added were financially supported by MTL Philippines who availed of a training program by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) prior to their employment.

The OSYs employment and the teachers absorption in Subic and in this town respectively is part of the P23 million community and social development programs of the mining company which is currently conducting exploration activities in barangay Runruno for possible Gold, Copper and Moly deposits in the area.

Since the start of the mining activities, MTL Philippines, Mendoza said has also employed 90 percent of the half of the total employable population of the village with corresponding livelihood projects. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
