179 beneficiaries of Department of Social Welfare and Development from the Municipality of Katipunan graduated from a technical vocational skills training course, implemented by the Sustainable Livelihood Program in partnership with Our Lady of Triumph Institute of Technology (OLT) based in Ozamis City.
The graduates who are in-house students have completed National Certificate II (NC II) on Masonry and Housekeeping.
OLT assures that beneficiaries are directly employed after graduation.
Graduates who will be locally employed under housekeeping are expected to earn the average salary of 13, 500 pesos per month, while masonry will be 450 pesos per day.
Our program participants will gain not only monetary benefits from the acquired skills but it will likewise boost their confidence, self-esteem, and raise their morale because they can now provide the necessities of their family.
