BALER, Aurora (PIA) — About 100 former rebels in the province of Aurora participated in a two-day skills training provided by the government.

The attendees, who are members of 14 people’s organizations (POs), learned how to make processed meat such as tocino and longganisa as well as smoked fish, salted eggs and pineapple jam.

91st Infantry Battalion (91st IB) Commander Lieutenant Colonel Julito Recto Jr. said the training seeks to provide livelihood opportunities to returnees to uplift their lives and community.

“We wish for the success of their businesses but it depends on how they manage it,” Recto pressed.

To aid them, a total of P500,000 worth of livelihood starter kits were awarded to the attendees.

The kits included a steamer, casserole/saucepan, utility tray, mixing bowl, measuring cups and spoon, mixing paddles, gas stove with tank, weighing scale with stainless steel tray, and meat slicer.

TESDA OIC-Provincial Director Jerome Lopez, on the other hand, affirmed that they are always ready to capacitate marginalized and vulnerable individuals.

“We can arrange training even in far-flung areas. I wish you all success,” he told the trainees.

Meanwhile, PO Provincial Federation President “Ka Edgar” expressed his gratitude to the 91IB and the government for their continuous support to their needs.

“This training is a big help to us in order to become successful. We will do our best to work together in this endeavor through the guidance of 91st IB,” he emphasized.

Aside from training activities, the government provides other aid under the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program wherein returnees and their families are given a wide array of benefits to help them start anew as they are reintegrated to mainstream society.

These include scholarships, financial assistance, and employment. (CLJD/MAT-PIA 3)
