STA. BARBARA, Pangasinan – “Give man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.”

Following this famous adage, and in line with the Ten-Point Progress Agenda (particularly in the area of Livelihood and Job Creation) of Mayor Reynaldo V. Velasco, a 15-day Summer Skills Training Program was launched on April 26 at the Orbos Gym in this town.

This project, which covers courses on Food Processing, Commercial Cooking, Baking/Pastry Production and Food & Beverage Services is in partnership with the Luciano Millian Memorial School of Arts and Trade (LMMSAT) of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) based in Asingan, Pangasinan.

“We are providing this kind of opportunity because we want the people of Sta. Barbara to be progressive through perseverance, hard work and self-initiative. We want our constituents especially the less privileged to be free from people who tend to take advantage of their plight,” he said.

“This is a free training. Half of the cost will be shouldered by LMMSAT-TESDA and the other will be shouldered by LGU- Sta. Barbara. The savings from gasoline expense of 2009 will be used for this project so that we could maximize the utilization of our funds,” he added.

Dr. Rosa Untalan, Administrator of LMMSAT said, “This is the first time that we are conducting this program in the 3rd District of Pangasinan. We offered this project after the recently conducted Galing Mason Oympics in Gawad Kalinga (GK) – Leet because we saw the dedication of Mayor Velasco is giving service to the townspeople of Sta. Barbara.”

In his orientation, Mr. Jesus Saagubang, LMMSAT training/instruction supervisor said, “If the kapampangans have their Pampanga’s best, after this training, you will be having your Sta. Barbara’s best.”

Present during the launching program were Velasco, Norman Dalope, municipal councilor in charge of livelihood programs, Erlinda Parayno, consultant on livelihood,. Gertrudes Fernandez, co-coordinator of the program, Wilma Coquia, MSWDO, Jesus Salagubang, LMMSAT training/instruction supervisor, Romeo Pandio, admin staff of LMMSAT, Brgy. Capt. Ernesto de Guzman, Gilda Contawe, trainer for baking/pastry production,. Zemma Fulgencio, trainer for commercial cooking, Evelyn Pascoy, trainer for food and beverage services, Valeriana Silvania, trainer for food processing and 200 targeted beneficiaries of the program.

After the launching program, the trainers and participants proceeded to GK-Leet and GK Maticmatic where the classes are being held. (DBC)
