86 complete livelihood trainings

    OLONGAPO CITY  —  A total of 86 residents of Barangay Gordon Heights in this city, graduated on July 3, 2009 after completing several free livelihood courses offered by Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. through the Livelihood and Cooperative Development Office (LCDO).

    Gordon has been encouraging community-based trainings to directly involve barangay officials and residents.

    A one-day mini trade-fair will highlight the said event which will showcase the end-products of fruit, meat and fish processing, dimsum making, iodized salt making, baking and sweet pastries. 

    “Sa pamamagitan ng munting trade fair na ito, maipapakita natin sa iba pa nating kababayan na mapapakinabangan nila kaagad ang kanilang natutunan upang pagkakitaan,” said Barangay Kagawad and Livelihood Committee Chair Ed Garcia.

    “Lubos ang pasasalamat ng Barangay Gordon Heights kay Mayor Bong Gordon sa libreng pagsasanay na ipinagkakaloob niya sa ating mga mamamayan,” said Barangay Chair Ed Gingco. “Ipagpapatuloy namin ang pagkakaroon ng libreng kursong pangkabuhayan dito sa Gordon Heights para mas marami pang residente and makinabang.”

    Gordon continues to provide livelihood trainings to Olongapeños to equip them with the necessary skills and competencies that can promote self-employment and assistance to would-be entrepreneurs.

    “With the different livelihood training programs we are offering, we hope to alleviate poverty by offering poor residents the means to raise their incomes,” Gordon emphasized.
