Another batch of Sugbo Kahanas graduates in the sixth district and Mandaue City have received their National Certificate II from Tesda and starter tool kits from the Capitol during the Caravan of Service in Consolacion on November 11.
Gov. Gwen Garcia led the ceremonial distribution of starter toolkits, as well as allowances ranging from P2,200 to as high as P9,800, depending on the number of days the beneficiaries spent for their training.
These graduates, who are now NCII holders, are now qualified to apply in skills-based jobs both here in the country and abroad, and may also start their own business using the skills they have learned.
Sugbo Kahanas is a 100-million-peso initiative of the Capitol first launched in the late 2021, benefiting more than 4,300 Cebuanos in its first round. This year, it has produced over 4,000 tech-voc graduates. | Babie Jane Revecoy
