City of San Fernando, La Union (15 Sept. 2011) – Some unemployed tech-voc graduates of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority recently received livelihood assistance that will enable them to use and further enhance their acquired skills.

The P100,000 worth of livelihood, which comes from the Kabuhayan Program of the Department of Labor and Employment, was awarded to the 18 tech-voc graduates from the Municipality of Badoc, Ilocos Norte for a business undertaking on welding, vulcanizing and repair of tricycle.

DOLE regional director Henry John Jalbuena said the intervention is aligned with the goal of inclusive growth under the leadership of Labor Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz.  “The Labor Chief is committed to achieve inclusive growth through the promotion of decent and gainful employment,” he said.

Jalbuena said the recipients can apply their skills to earn through the fabrication and repair of tricycles, which are primary means of public transportation in the town of Badoc.

In return, the recipients vowed to properly manage the project and to “inspire others with their oneness.” asv w/ report from Leonavella Dadiz, DOLE-INFO
