58IB, Claveria award livelihood tool kits to IPs

Indigenous people (IP) community in barangay Minalwang, Claveria, Misamis Oriental now have the means to start their own small-scale business for extra income following the livelihood training and turn-over of tool kits.

Army’s 58th Infantry Battalion (58IB) in partnership with Claveria local government unit, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and Balay Mindanaw turned over the tool kits for the graduating partipants from Minalwang during the closing ceremony of the baking training at the barangay.

The livelihood training, conducted by Balay Mindanaw to 25 IP and residents of the barangay, was part of the community support program of the government. Among the participants of the training were wives of the Citizen Armed Force Geography Unit (CAFGUs) stationed at the barangay.

Apart from the tool kits, the participants were also given allowance for the duration of the training and their National Certificate II.

According to TESDA, national certificate is issued when a candidate has demonstrated competence in all units of competency that comprised a qualification.

Further, with the skills they acquired through this livelihood training will open a new window for several job opportunities that will help uplift their economic living.

The training program was conducted in coordination with TESDA and LGU Claveria to deliver the basic services to the people in this far-flung barangay. It was facilitated by Balay Mindanaw at the nearest TESDA accredited institution.

Through this livelihood training Minalwang will become a resilient community and enable them to withstand the influence of NPA terrorists.

“I am happy that the IP community of Minalwang seeks to develop their lives by taking this livelihood training. They (IP) want to show that NPA were just full of empty promises and lies to organize their community but it is our own government that will help the community and bring them peace and development which they have long seek to enjoy,” Ltc Anthony O Derilo, 58th IB commanding officer said.
