Vice Mayor Cesar Iturralde has commended Councilor Miguel “Mike” Alavar III and the Brotherhood for Livelihood Philippines (BLP) for a job well done in giving free livelihood trainings to various people in the different places in and out Zamboanga City.

Iturralde made the commendation during the graduation day of the comprehensive livelihood training on bangus processing held at the Escuela del La Infancia last Monday where he was the guest.

Iturralde  cited Alavar and the group for their  free services to the people by sharing free knowledge on fish processing.

He said that the training being held by Alavar and his group is relevant and useful because the students can use their knowledge to help their families earn a living aside from their other means of livelihood.

The vice mayor also congratulated the 42 mothers and guardians of pupils who completed the week long training.

Iturralde was impressed after Alavar and the graduates let him taste their finished products — “relyenong bangus” and “deboned bangus”.
Alavar graded the participants “perfect”after all of them showed keen interest in learning the fish processing.

He said that in the week-long training, the participants learned everything what the trainers have thought them from hand washing up to the final processing of the products.

Alavar and the group vowed to the participants to return to the school soon to conduct one more training after the graduates requested them to teach them another fish processing like the Spanish style sardines.

The city councilor said it is now more than seven years when he started giving free livelihood training to the people and he pledged to continue his mission to help the community especially the less fortunate.

Alavar also commended the trainers —  Mark Torralba, Joseph Araneta, Jefrrey Riondon, Alex Sali, Jung-Jung Abella and other staff members like Nonong Manahan, Jeffrey Alavar and Ducs “Pongie” Zapanta for their active participation in the conduct of the group’s livelihood trainings. — Dan Toribio Jr.
