Sun Star Bacolod - - Community Bulletin -

TWO hun­dred seven­teen res­i­dents of the Third District in Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal re­cently were awarded their com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cates by the Tech­ni­cal Ed­u­ca­tion and Skills De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (Tesda) for com­plet­ing the Spe­cial Train­ing for Em­ploy­ment Pro­gram (Step).

This is to get them ready for gain­ful em­ploy­ment or to start liveli­hood ven­tures in the home or in the com­mu­nity.

The skills train­ing was con­ducted by Tesda in part­ner­ship with the of­fice of Con­gress­man Al­fredo Ben­itez who fa­cil­i­tated the com­mu­nity-based train­ing ses­sions in co­or­di­na­tion with the lo­cal gov­ern­ment units of the district.

Philip­pine Women’s Univer­sity pres­i­dent Jose Fran­cisco Ben­itez, brother of the con­gress­man, rep­re­sented him in the grad­u­a­tion pro­grams held re­cently in Si­lay City and Tal­isay City.

He ral­lied the ben­e­fi­cia­ries to bring with them the ed­u­ca­tion and skills, and the dig­nity of la­bor, wher­ever they may be, so they can bring de­vel­op­ment and progress to their fam­i­lies and com­mu­ni­ties.

The train­ing in­cluded well­ness mas­sage, bread-mak­ing, cake-mak­ing, food pro­cess­ing (salt­ing, cur­ing, smok­ing), and ser­vice mo­tor­cy­cle/small en­gine sys­tem ser­vic­ing.

Sec­toral groups cov­ered were women, fish­er­folks, OFWS, drug re­formists, and in­mates of the Bureau of Jail Man­age­ment and Penol­ogy (BJMP) in Tal­isay and Si­lay./pr
