ISLAND Garden City of Samal -- A total of 25 graduates from Samal Island received the Community Based Technical and Vocational Training last December 4, 2017 at Samal Cultural Gymnasium, Barangay Peñaplata.
During the graduation, tool kits were distributed to those who completed the Motorcycle and Small Engine Servicing NCII.
The graduates were among the beneficiaries of Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)'s Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP), which provides 4Ps (Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program) beneficiaries free education on skills and practical technology vocational trainings.
“The training was from September 5, 2017 to October 9, 2017. It was held from Mondays to Saturdays at Freedom Park Peñaplata. The service provider of this training is the Southeastern Mindanao Institute of Technology, Inc. Davao City however it’s the DSWD who allotted budget for it," said Jenny Mae Bandola DSWD Project Development Officer II for SLP.
The SLP is a community-based capacity-building program aimed at improving the socio-economic status of its participants. The program was derived from the Sustainable Livelihood Approach (SLA). It was created through adopting key principles, structures, and processes from SLA and tailoring them to fit the setting of communities in the Philippines. Karousel V. Equia/ Samal Info
