TESDA provides skills training for ARBS in Zambales
The Technical Educational and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is poised to provide skills training to dependents of agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) in Zambales province.
Emmanuel Aguinaldo, provincial agrarian reform program officer, said on Wednesday that he met and discussed with TESDA representatives how to empower the ARBs’ children not only in the field of agriculture.
According to a Philippine News Agency report, the partnership between TESDA and the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) is aimed at providing options to ARBs’ dependents.
Aguinaldo said the skills training to be provided will not only focus on agricultural courses but also electronics, practical electricity, driving, welding, and domestic household work.
“Although we realize that organizational development and strengthening and agricultural production seminars being conducted by DAR are necessary, we have to find ways to augment ARB household income,” he said in the PNA report.
“Skills training and eventual employment of ARBs’ children will go a long way in breaking dependency of ARB households on farm income alone,” Aguinaldo was quoted as saying in the report.
