Iba, Zambales – The TESDA Provincial Training Center Iba demonstrated its unwavering commitment to community development by actively participating in the One Stop Service Caravan for the 4Ps beneficiaries. This groundbreaking event was initiated in collaboration with the Local Government Unit of Botolan and the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office. Held on October 11, 2023, at the People’s Plaza in Botolan, Zambales, this event was a harmonious effort that featured the participation of both government agencies and private enterprises.
Dr. Eugene Peñaranda, the esteemed administrator of Provincial Training Center Iba, spearheaded the center’s involvement in the event. The services offered by the center during this exceptional gathering were diverse and inclusive, ranging from enrollment activities and advocacy programs to job inductions and toolkit distribution. A remarkable total of 145 enthusiastic individuals enrolled in various programs, with a special focus on land transport and agriculture-related courses.
Additionally, the event provided a platform to recognize and empower 73 Indigenous Peoples (IPs) graduates from the Assembly of Solar Nightlight and Post Lamp program. These talented individuals received their starter toolkits, which will undoubtedly empower them to pursue their careers further. The initiative was graced by the honorable presence of Botolan Mayor Jun Omar Ebdane. In addition to the toolkits, recipients received essential job induction and financial literacy interventions, skillfully conducted by Social Security System, Public Employment Service Office, and Cebuana Lhullier.
