Tarlac City to establish cooperative for water lily weavers
The city government of Tarlac said Saturday it will form a cooperative composed of water lily weavers.
This as women and persons with disability (PWDs) from Culipat village underwent training in making handicraft made from water lilies, a program spearheaded by Mayor Cristy Angeles, on April 12.
“Ang nasabing proyekto ay bahagi rin ng pagbibigay solusyon sa pag-alis sa bulto-bultong water lily sa mga dike at ilog na isa ring pangunahing dahilan ng pagbaha habang tinutulungan makapag hanapbuhay ang mga differently abled at mga kababaihan ng lungsod,” the Tarlac City Information Office said.
Those who participated in the training belong to the Samahan ng may Kapansanan (SAMAKA) and the Kaisa Women’s Organization (KWO).
During the training, among the products made from water lilies were trays, mats, slippers, bags and baskets.
The project was started in the villages of Armenia, Banaba and Buhilit.
“Sa susunod na mga araw, isang kooperatiba ang itatatag para sa mga water lily weavers upang mabigyan sila ng panimulang puhunan at matulungan sa pagbebenta ng mga produkto,” the local government said.
