FLORIDABLANCA -- The Kapampangan Ku, Pagmaragul Ku (KKPK), an organization of Kapampangan on Facebook, hosted a housekeeping training program for dozens of participants here in bid to give employment skills to people in need of jobs.
The KKPK is composed of Kapampangans who have bonded together on Facebook under the same name. The group is composed of dozens of Kapampangans from across the world.
The Housekeeping Training Program was made possible through the Archangel School and Development Inc. and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda), and was implemented by the KKPK members based in Pampanga at Barangay Valdez.
Those who have finished the program received certifications from Tesda. KKPK said that the event is part of the long list of programs and social services it wishes to accomplish with its members in various parts of Pampanga.
KKPK hosts regular missions in the facility as part of its social service programs to bring Kapampangans from different locations in an occasion for camaraderie and giving. Recently, the group has been quietly hosting feedings programs and medical missions in target communities in Pampanga.
The KKPK, through its six chapters in the province, has been active with its feeding programs, financial assistance to indigent patients, children’s home, senior citizens centers, and other projects. The group’s resources are mainly through donations coming from its members through networking links through Facebook.
