35 families train on bread, pastry making
by Babble Mae Gorio

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – The Department of Social Welfare and Development through its Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) granted P700,000 worth of livelihood assistance to 35 indigent families.

In partnership with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority of Kalinga, members of the Istay-Makun-Na Sustainable Livelihood Program Association (SLPA) underwent a seven-day skills training on bread and pastry production which ran from May 11 to 17.

Istay-Makun-Na SLPA has 35 members, 27 of them are Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries while eight are certified indigent. Currently, the members are reliant on their income from farming and daily labor.

Members of the SLPA expressed their gratitude for the opportunity.

SLPA president Daria Guinayao offered her family’s old house to accommodate the bakery that they will be putting up.

“Our agency, with the local government unit and DSWD will be assisting the association for their registration and linkage to the market,” Tesda Provincial Director Gabriel Cayacay said in his speech during the training’s opening program.

Meanwhile, SLP OIC-regional program coordinator Enrique H. Gascon, Jr. said continuous provision of grants to SLPs is one of the government’s contributions to poverty reduction by providing a sufficient and sustainable source of income.

SLP is a community-based capacity building program that increases the economic opportunities of the families through the different modalities like the Microenterprise Development-Skills Training (MD-ST). 

MD-ST is a grant given to SLP program participants to enhance their skills for higher productivity and profitability. It provides the participants financial capital, knowledge and skills to be able to establish and manage sustainable microenterprises.

Participants in the MD-ST track are pooled as a group known as SLPA. These will help them establish economically sustainable microenterprises and maximize resources within their organized groups.

Bread and Pastry Production is a Tesda short course training focusing on the preparation and production of pastries and desserts. The participants have to undergo knowledge and skills transfer training on bread and pastry production and basic bookkeeping to establish their market-driven and resource-based bread and pastry micro-enterprise. Successful trainees are conferred with a National Certificate II.

Aside from the training and assessment fee, the DSWD has also provided starter kits which include baking equipment, utensils, and ingredients.
