Wednesday, October 30, 2013
TWENTY women, mostly housewives, underwent skills development training jointly conducted by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the Technical Education and Skill Development Authority (Tesda) in the municipality of Jose Dalman, Zamboanga del Norte.
DTI Regional Director Nazrullah Manzur announced on Wednesday that the training forms part of the services they provided to the residents in Jose Dalman town during the recent information caravan cum medical mission.
Manzur said the participants were trained on hair cutting techniques and in manicure and pedicure by an expert beautician-trainer provided by Tesda.
The DTI, on the other hand, has provided the starter kits containing the basic tools and materials needed for the hands–on training, according to Manzur.
“It (the training) was specifically requested by the residents from DTI and Tesda during the needs assessment survey conducted prior to the caravan,” he added.
He said the participants of the training could use later the starter kits to start a salon business to earn a living to augment the family’s income. (Bong Garcia)
