CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga Aug. 23 (PIA) --Governor Ferdinand B. Tubban lauded the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) provincial office for its contribution in changing the lives of families in the province.
Tubban acknowledged TESDA's role in job generation particularly to those with no formal education and out-of-school who found regular source of income after graduating from technology and vocational courses.
To see greater impact, he challenged other TESDA graduates to also help themselves and start opening their own livelihood activities now saying government is doing its part to address the economic plight of people.
'We want to see trained and skilled family heads having jobs than merely those having obtained skills from the program,' Tubban stressed.
To those seeking work, the governor offered placement assistance from the local government and other mandated agencies involved in employment programs.
He appealed to TESDA for wider dissemination of its programs especially to remote villages where he said the 'poorest of the poor' live. (JDP/LL-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
