Organic agriculture training in Tomoy-Tomoy successful

Despite the disruptions brought by the pandemic, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and the Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT) still continue their advocate to train Filipinos in basic skills that will somehow uplift their standards of living. And we, together with the ALS Learners of Tomoy-tomoy CLC, are blessed to be included among their recipients. Last July 12 to 16, a 5-DAY DIGITAL LITERACY TRAINING for 20 participants was conducted at Tomoy-tomoy CLC and was gladly attended by my ALS Learners, who showed their eagerness in learning the essential Basic Computer Skills. Throughout the training, they were able to manipulate the computers with ease and made them more competent and confident individuals. They are now prepared and more equipped in terms of finding decent jobs. I cannot express in words, the joy they felt, the moment they tearfully received their certificates at the end of the training. And for that I am very grateful to the people behind this, specially the officers from the DICT Rey Noel Collera together with their ILCDB Focal Marian Go-Soco.
TESDA conducted a 29-day Short Course Training on Organic Agriculture Production NCII at barangay Tomoy-tomoy on October 23 to Nov. 11, 2021. My ALS learners and I were among the participants together with some residents of the community. Its focus is to train us in producing organic farm products including the application of organic supplements such as raising organic chicken, producing organic vegetables, organic fertilizers and organic concoctions and extracts. This type of training fits the needs of the participants because farming is the primary source of income in the said barangay. TESDA also granted several benefits to all the participants, including NCII certificates which are very important in seeking jobs abroad. Another was the Training Support Fund amounting to P160.00 per day and internet/protective equipment allowance of P1,000 per scholar. With the collaborative efforts of everyone involved in this activity, the said training ended very successfully.
