Spearheaded by Congressman Romero Federico “Miro” Quimbo, the city government of Marikina launches its “Q Livelihood Trucks” which will roam around the District II of the city to provide quality livelihood trainings.
The Mobile Livelihood Training Trucks are from the private organization Asian Touch International Training Institute, Inc., which is worth PhP5M and shall be used by the city of Marikina for free.
These trucks will provide the residents of District II in Marikina with Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA)- accredited trainings. Two trucks shall be used, where one truck has facilities for housekeeping while the other is for commercial cooking and bartending.
“We want to bring the government and its services closer to the people of Marikina. Through these trucks, we can educate them and provide them quality trainings without having to travel far as we go to their barangays,” said Quimbo.
In each session, 30 to 50 students can learn and train in the said trucks. These trucks are operated by the personnel of the TESDA-accredited Asian Touch International Training Institute, Inc. and they will provide the lessons as well.
“This way, the students shall be provided with quality trainings for them to be able to find quality jobs here and abroad,” Quimbo added.
This is in line with the flagship programs of the Office of Congressman Quimbo which is “Livelihood” aiming to maximize the learning facilities available in the city.
