Tesda turns over houses to 20 fam­i­lies in Manapla, Cadiz

Sun Star Bacolod - - Business -

THE Tech­ni­cal Ed­u­ca­tion and Skills Au­thor­ity (Tesda), in part­ner­ship with lo­cal gov­ern­ment units (LGUS), has turned over houses to 20 fam­i­lies in Manapla town and Cadiz City.

In Manapla, 10 fam­i­lies re­ceived five du­plex-type shel­ters at Gawad Kalinga Vil­lage, Barangay Punta Mesa on Fe­bru­ary 1.

The turnover cer­e­mony was led by Tesda Re­gion 6 di­rec­tor Ashary Banto and Manapla Mayor Ma. Lour­des Es­calante.

Also present were Gawad Kalinga Di­rec­tor Ariel Pa­tria and of­fi­cials of Tes­dane­gros Oc­ci­den­tal and barangay coun­cil.

It can be re­called that dur­ing the on­slaught of Su­per Typhoon Yolanda in 2013, Manapla was among the hardly-hit LGUS in the prov­ince.

Tesda then launched its Yolanda Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and Re­cov­ery Pro­gram Train­ing and Pro­duc­tion (YRRP-TCP) project.

Tesda-ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal, in a press re­lease yes­ter­day, said the pro­gram pushes for sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment among Yolanda-af­fected com­mu­ni­ties through pro­vi­sion of liveli­hood and skills train­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

In Cadiz City, an­other 10 fam­i­lies also re­ceived the same num­ber of house units in Barangay Daga last month.

Like those in Manapla, the re­cip­i­ent-fam­i­lies have also trans­ferred in their new and per­ma­nent shel­ters.

The award­ing cer­e­mony was also at­tended by Tesda of­fi­cials and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of var­i­ous part­ners in­clud­ing I-home, Uni­ver­sal School of Ap­plied Tech­nol­ogy of Sa­gay City, Golden Prime In­sti­tute for Tech­nol­ogy Ser­vices Inc., and Barangay Coun­cil of­fi­cials.*
