Twenty six participants of the Livelihood Skills on Handicraft completed their 10-day training and then received their certification from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority-9 (TESDA-9) in a simple ceremony on July 25, 2011 Monday afternoon at the St. Anthony of Padua Parish in Putik, this city.

In coordination with the Daughters of Mary Immaculate International (DMI) and the Second District Congressional Office under Rep. Erbie A.  Fabian, the participants learned how to sew and produce travelling bags, bedroom slippers, lunch bags, souvenir portfolios, shoulder bags and cellphone pouches.

Barangay Affairs Officer graced the graduation ceremony, together with Barangay Kagawad Romano Barro and TESDA Senior Specialist Ms. Marilou Olayan.
During the second day of the training, an additional sewing machine was donated by Rep. Fabian and delivered by Mr. Camins in order to help the participants maximize
their outputs which are expected to be on sale and available for pre-order soon.

Interested buyers may place their orders by contacting the St. Anthony of Padua Parish in Putik.
The training is just one of the many scheduled under the Employment of Rural Barangays through Integrated Education or ERBIE Program.
