LIVELIHOOD TRAINING IN EAST BAJAC-BAJAC
The five (5) day training/seminar was held in the Brgy. Hall of East Bajac-Bajac from June 16-20, 2008 with the theme ‘Isang Gunting, Isang Suklay’.
“Nakadagdag po sa aming pagkatuto ang mga kompletong equipment sa paggupit na libreng pinagamit ng mga facilitators,” said Ma. Theresa Orio, one of the participants.
Chris Tooley, a professional hairdresser and member of Olongapo’s Hairdressers Association and his assistant Norfa Balor, who graduated from the same training in 2005 trained and guided the participants.
Basic haircutting like barber’s cut, layer hair style and hair trimming were some of skills learned by the participants.
The said training was just one of the many trainings that are being conducted by LCDO in line with the programs of Mayor Gordon to advance the livelihood opportunities for the benefit of the Olongapeños.
“Hindi hadlang ang kahirapan para umangat sa buhay. Sa tulong ng mga skills on the different sources of livelihood na tulad ng haircutting at skills on food processing maaari nang makapagsimula ang ating mga kababayan ng munting negosyo bilang simula ng kanilang pag-asenso,” Mayor Gordon stated.
