BONTOC, Mountain Province – Trainees under the Special Training for Employment Program (STEP) of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority-provincial office received 295 starter tool kits for their livelihood projects.

The kits will be used for bread making, cake making pastry making, beauty care, hair dressing, and automotive servicing.

Tesda Provincial Director David B. Bungallon encouraged the beneficiaries to spread the programs of the agency so more people can avail of their services.

Tesda Regional Director Efren F. Piñol expressed hope that the tools kits will improve the beneficiaries’ way of living.

Acting Governor Bonifacio C. Lacwasan, Jr. added  that the project will help address unemployment in the province

“We cannot hire all the unemployed in our province, much as we would like to. This is why we are exploring other avenues that may pave the way towards sustainable employment for the less fortunate,” Lacwasan said.

Dubbed as “Technical Vocational Education Training Encounter,” the activity is part of the Mountain Province Foundation Day and Lang-ay Festival.

STEP is a community-based specialty training program that seeks to address the specific needs of the communities and promote employment  through entrepreneurial, self-employment, and service-oriented activities.
