NCR-TODA members binigyan ng TESDA scholarships

Tumulong ang Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) sa pagtugon sa mga hinaing at isyu ng mga miyembro ng National Capital Region – Tricycle Operators and Drivers’ Association (NCR-TODA) Coalition.

Ito ay sa pamamagitan ng paglaan ng paunang 200 TESDA scholarship slots para sa mga miyembro ng NCR-TODA Coalition upang madagdagan ang kanilang kaalaman at magkaroon ng iba pang oportunidad upang kumita.

Ang TESDA Certificate of Scholarship Commitment para sa TODA ay iginawad nina TESDA Scholarships Management Office Director-in-Charge Sonia S. Lipio at Pasay/Makati District Director Angelina M. Carreon kasama si dating Special Assistant to the President, Sec. Bong Go na tinanggap naman, sa ngalan ng kowalisyon, ni Mr. Ismael O. Sevilla, presidente ng NCR TODA Coalition.

Ito ay naganap sa idinaos na 3rd TODA Summit na isinagawa sa Cuneta Astrodome, Pasay City noong Enero 23, 2019.

Magkakaroon pa ng pag-uusap para matukoy ang mga training na angkop sa mga benepisyaryo at kung saan ito gaganapin.

Si Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte ang naging pangunahing taga-pagsalita sa nasabing summit na dinaluhan ng may 7,000 NCR-TODA Coalition members, mga bisita at empleyado ng mga kalahok na national government agencies (NGAs) at local government units (LGUs).

“We are here to serve.  Wala kaming ginagawa diyan kung hindi magtrabaho. Iyan ang buhay namin.  It’s just a matter of telling us na, ‘ganito ang problema,’” sabi ng Presidente sa kanyang talumpati.

Ang NCR-TODA Coalition ay binubuo ng may 965 TODA organizations sa buong rehiyon.

Kabilang sa mga reklamo at isyu na ipinarating ng grupo sa gobyerno ay ang hindi umano pagpansin ng gobyerno sa kanilang kalagayan; walang matatag na pinagkukunan ng pagkakakitaan; limitadong livelihood opportunities; at nahihirapan sa pagkuha ng mga health benefits.

Ang mga kalahok na NGAs ay kinabibilangan ng TESDA, Social Security System (SSS), PhilHealth, Pag-IBIG Fund, Commission on Higher Education (CHED), Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Department of Social Welfare Development (DSWD), Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Department of Energy (DOE), Department of Internal and Local Government, Department of Transportation, at Cooperative Development Authority.

Sa nasabing summit, ang mga kalahok na NGAs ay naglagay ng kani-kanilang booth para ipaalam sa mga miyembro ng TODA ang mga programa, proyekto at serbisyo na ipinagkakaloob gobyerno na pwede nilang mapakinabangan.

Ang mga tricycle drivers ay itinuturing ng TESDA na bahagi ng mga informal sector na kailangang matulungan ng ahensya.(END)

NCR-TODA members receive TESDA scholarships

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) has recently responded to the needs and concerns expressed by the members of the National Capital Region – Tricycle Operators and Drivers’ Association (NCR-TODA) Coalition.

An initial 200 TESDA scholarship slots were allocated and awarded to the NCR-TODA Coalition in an effort to enhance their skills and possibly help them supplement their livelihood.

The TESDA Certificate of Scholarship Commitment for the TODA was awarded by TESDA Scholarships Management Office Director-in-Charge Sonia S. Lipio and Pasay/Makati District Director Angelina M. Carreon along with former Special Assistant to the President Sec. Bong Go, which was in turn received on behalf of the coalition by Ismael O. Sevilla, NCR TODA Coalition president.

The awarding of the scholarship commitment was done during the 3rd TODA Summit held at the Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay City last January 23, 2019.

Further talks between TESDA and NCR TODA Coalition will be held to determine the most suitable training programs, its beneficiaries and training venues.

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte was the keynote speaker during the event which was attended by some 7,000 NCR-TODA Coalition members, visitors, and employees of participating national government agencies (NGAs) and local government units (LGUs).

“We are here to serve.  Wala kaming ginagawa diyan kung hindi magtrabaho. Iyan ang buhay namin.  It’s just a matter of telling us na, ‘ganito ang problema,’” said the President during his speech.

The NCR-TODA Coalition has 965 TODA organizations in the region under its umbrella.

Among the members’ complaints are the seeming lack of government concern for their situation; absence of a steady source of income; limited livelihood opportunities; and their difficulty in availing health benefits.

Among the NGAs that participated in the summit were TESDA, Social Security System (SSS), PhilHealth, Pag-IBIG Fund, Commission on Higher Education (CHED), Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Department of Social Welfare Development (DSWD), Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Department of Energy (DOE), Department of Internal and Local Government, Department of Transportation, and Cooperative Development Authority.

During the summit, participating NGAs set up booths at the venue to entertain queries that the members of the TODA may have regarding their respective programs, projects and, services and how these can be availed.

Tricycle drivers are regarded by TESDA as part of the informal sector which can further benefit from the agency’s assistance.
