FREE LIVELIHOOD TRAININGS IN OLONGAPO, STILL ONGOING!
Under the leadership of Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr., the free Livelihood Training is still ongoing and growing strong further for Olongapo City residents who are interested and eager to learn to make a living.
‘’Dalawang klase ang trabaho, ang una ay sa pamamagitan ng pag-eempleyo o pamamasukan at ang pangalawa naman ay ang self-employment o mismong ikaw ang nagpapa-takbo ng iyong sariling negosyo at iyan ang mas maganda dahil ikaw ang boss ng iyong sariling negosyo at walang amo,’’ said Mayor Bong Gordon.
Free livelihood trainings are conducted continuously in Olongapo administered by the city local government through Mayor Gordon’s HELPS Program. ‘’Dapat rin nating tandaan na ang Livelihood ay isa sa mga programang kabilang sa HELPS program ng aking administrasyon kaya dapat nating tutukan iyan,’’ Mayor Gordon added.
The following is the list of livelihood training schedule for the whole month of June given by the lead agency of the program, the Livelihood Cooperative Development Office (LCDO):
June 7 & 8 - Meat Processing
June 10 & 11 - Chinese Dimsum
June 14 to 25 - 10 days Whole Body Massage
June 16 - Chocolate Candies Making
June 22 & 23 - Sweet Pastries
June 29 & 30 - Squash Based Products
In September 2009, the Livelihood and Training Center at Ohio St., Brgy. Kalaklan formally opened. The construction of the tw0 (2) story training center is proof of Mayor Bong Gordon and First Lady Anne Gordon’s pursuit to give Olongapeños a better training environment and, at the same time, a place that can accommodate more trainees for the program.
Since the livelihood training started in 2005 up to the present, over eight thousand (8,000) trainees have graduated from the program and a lot of those graduates have started their own little businesses and projects from which they earn a living.
