Organized by TESDA-10’s Regional Office and TESDA-Misamis Oriental, the training conducted is part of the agency’s approach to rebuilding the lives of disaster-stricken areas through the provision of community-based training programs to capacitate, secure, and improve their socio-economic well-being.
The skills capacity-building activities held by the TESDA Technology Institutions were the Basic Solar Installation Demo by the Regional Training Center (RTC)-Tagoloan, Chicken Nuggets Making by the Provincial Training Center-Misamis Oriental (PTC-MOR), Empanada Making Demo by Cagayan de Oro (Bugo) School of Arts and Trades (COBSAT), and Siopao and Donut Making Demo by the Kinoguitan National Agricultural School (KNAS).
Based on the report by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)-10 last January 7, 10,302 families or 48,183 individuals living in Gingoog City were affected by the heavy flooding and rains. (TESDA-10/PIA-10/Misamis Oriental)
