The Zonta Club of Zamboanga City and TESDA will launch a livelihood program that aims to benefit the women of Zamboanga City.

In a meeting between the Zonta Club led by its president Rowena Tan and TESDA Chief Regional Operations Division, Mr. Eulalio Lumactod, held last July 4, the Zonta Club sought the support of TESDA in coming up with a viable livelihood program that would help the women of Zamboanga City become self-sufficient and generate income for their families.    The first batch of 30 to undergo training and supervision will be selected from two barangays in the city.

The assistance of the barangay chairmenwill be sought in the selection of these women. The initial training is scheduled on July 26, 2011.

Technical Education and Skills Development Authority or TESDA was established to encourage the full participation of and mobilize the industry, labor, local government units and technical-vocational institutions in the skills development of the country’s human resources.
