Ang mga drug surrenderers ay kabilang  sa mga beneficiaries sa programang  Skills Training for Special Clients ng TESDA na ang ibang kasama ay ang indigenous peoples (IPs), calamity-affected communities, inmates and dependents, person with disability (PWD), family enterprises, at rebel returnees.

Batay sa status report on skills training for drug surrenderers sa loob nang nabanggit na panahon, 20,550 na ang sumailalim sa skills training program  at livelihood program ng TESDA kung saan nagamit na nila sa kanilang paghahanapbuhay at pagbabagong buhay.

Kung matatandaan na  inihayag ng TESDA chief na pagkakalooban ng ahensya ng skils training  at livelihood assistance ang mga ‘Tokhang’  surrenderers upang mabigyan sila ng pagkakataon na magbago, magkaroon ng desenteng pamumuhay, matatag na trabaho at oportunidad na maging empleyado.

Naniniwala ang opisyal na kung armado ng mga skills at oportunidad na makapagtrabaho at kumita ng pera, tiyak umanong magbabago ang mga drug users at pushers sa buong bansa.

Ito ay bilang pagsuporta ng TESDA sa programa ni Pangulong Rodrigo ‘Digong” Duterte kontra droga.

Samantala, patuloy pa rin ang paghimok ni Mamondiong sa mga drug surrenderers na magtungo sa pinakamalapit na mga TESDA training centers sa kanilang lugar at kumuha ng libreng skills training na kanilang gusto na magagamit sa kanilang pagbabagong buhay. (END)
