Trash-To-Cash Training for Women

The Iloilo City Gender and Development (GAD) Office conducted Livelihood Skills Training for Barangay Officials and Community Women Officers as a part of the Barangay Economic Empowerment (BEE) Project on March 10 in line with the International Women’s Month Celebration.

The undertaking was in collaboration with the Technical Institute of Iloilo City (TIIC) through school administrator Maria Mathilde Treñas, Zonta Club of Iloilo City President Louise Cordova, Talatapan Center Coordinator Shirley Conte and GAD head Mary Ann Ramos.

Barangay secretariats and female officials were instructed on how to make “makeable” items from recyclables, a replication of arts and crafts produced by the City Government Children’s Learning Center or Talatapan’s Trash to Cash Project.

Seven (7) barangays namely: Navais, Mandurriao; Ungka and Bitoon, Jaro; Arsenal-Aduana, Ortiz, and Rizal Ibarra, City Proper; and Bo. Obrero, Lapuz, participated in the recycling cum income-generating initiative.

The concerted efforts made and skills taught could be an avenue for barangay officials to share their knowledge with their constituents. (Iloilo City PIO)
