LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority-Cordillera in coordination with the provincial government of Benguet provided livelihood skills training to 29 persons deprived of liberty at the Benguet Provincial Jail.
The livelihood skills training was from Feb. 21 to March 4 in certificates of competency in Bread and Pastry Production NC II: Bread Making, Pastry Making, and Cake Making.
Tesda Benguet Provincial Director Jimmicio S. Daoaten, Governor Melchor D. Diclas, La Trinidad Mayor Romeo K. Salda, and Jirah Sidayao, a representative from the Office of Rep. Eric Yap, attended the graduation ceremony of the trainees.
Daoaten lauded the graduates on their diligence and urged them to continue learning despite being in prison.
“Life has a lot to offer. Just because you are detained means your life ends here. We have different experiences and stories to tell but do not let this experience and challenges stop you from achieving your goals in life. This is temporary. You won’t last here in jail.  It is part of our life that we make mistakes but use this as a source of inspiration. Tesda want you to have a vision for a better life and future,” he said.
The trainees expressed their gratitude to Tesda for the opportunity to learn. – Press release
