PRLEC Mass Graduation
More than 800 graduates on training programs on Executive Order No. 70 attend the Mass Graduation being held at the San Mariano Convention Center, San Mariano, Isabela.
The activity is an offshoot of the different training programs conducted by TESDA Isabela Provincial Office together with the Isabela School of Arts and Trades to Indigenous People and residents of the Municipalities of San Mariano and Benito Soliven in Isabela, two of the towns in Region 2 that are identified as conflict affected areas.
The activity was graced by the Poverty Reduction Livelihood and Employment Cluster (PRLEC) Coordinator for Luzon, Dir. Diosdado C. Escalante. Dir. Escalante shared that TESDA, as Chair of the PRLEC, shall continue to support the implementation of Executive Order No. 70 or the Whole of Nation Approach to End Local Communist Armed Conflict through the provision of skills training to those who are affected by the armed conflicts.
In his message addressed to the graduates, he said that he hopes that their productivity and employability will be increased and their lives will be better. According to him, this is what TESDA Abot Lahat is all about, to reach the unreached, serve the underserved and bring those in the margins into the mainstream of society.
