Persons Deprived of Liberty receive training from TESDA-AgNor

BUTUAN CITY -- The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority Agusan del Norte (TESDA-AgNor) recently conducted a three-day skills training in Slippers Making to Persons Deprived of Liberty (PDL) at Butuan City Jail-Male Dorm, Butuan City.

A total of 32 PDL were trained to make slippers. This would help them acquire knowledge and skills helpful for them as they reintegrate themselves back to the society.  

In his message, TESDA AgNor provincial director Rey Cueva encouraged the PDL to be hopeful and to still dream of greater things regardless of their situation. “Skills training would not only keep you busy, but would make you productive citizens. With this, you can still earn income and help your families despite being deprived of liberty”, he said.

The activity is a partnership between TESDA-AgNor, Butuan City Jail headed by the City Jail Warden, J/CINSP Diovin C Auza and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) Regional Office XIII headed by the Regional Director, J/CSUPT Jolly C Taguiam Jr, represented by J/INSP Margie Canangcaan.

TESDA-AgNor’s continuous support to BJMP in transforming lives is in line with TESDA Caraga’s mantra “Caraga CARES” headed by Regional Director, Tarhata S. Mapandi. (TESDA Agusan del Norte/PIA Agusan del Norte)
