This program will not be possible without the support of the Municipality of Baliwag under the leadership of Mayor Ferdinand V. Estrella. The skills training programs is in partnership with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and Provincial Youth, Sports and Employment Development Office (PYSEDO).

The event was formally opened with an opening remarks from Mr. Nedy Roxas, PESO Consultant “Ang pagsisimula sa maliit ay kayang palakihin, kung tayo ay may sipag, tiyaga at magandang pamamahala sa inyong napiling kurso para makilala kayo hindi lang dito sa Baliwag – maging sa buong mundo at isa kayo sa maging dangal ng Baliwag” he said. Mr. Lee Edward “Dingdong” Nicolas – Councilor, congratulates the attendees for successfully graduating and he said “Naniniwala po ako na pwede ninyong maabot ang inyong mga pangarap, pinakamasarap at pinakamagandang buhay sa ating bayan. Sana po sa darating na panahon ay magkikita tayo at isa sa taga-Baliwag ang pinakamagaling sa larangang kanyang pinili”. Ms. Flordeliza Tamayo- Division Chief of PESO Malolos delivered her message in behalf of Ms. Elizabeth Alonzo- Department Head of PYSEDO.  She encouraged the beneficiaries to continuously nurture their learning and used it as a stepping stone to put up a livelihood that may provide them an additional income for their family.

In an interview with one of the beneficiaries, Mr. Rufino De Guzman- Secretary of Change Politics Movement (CPM) “Thankful kami kasi nasama yung mga leaders namin sa training, malaking tulong po kasi mostly sa mga umattend ng free training ay mga ilaw ng tahanan so bukod dun sa hanapbuhay ng mga partners nila maisheshare din nila ung mga knowledge nila sa mga anak nila pati na rin sa mga kakilala at kabaranggay nila”. Ms. Zenaida Cabigao- a 34 years old housewife and currently works in a spa and wellness center “Malaki pong pagpapasalamat ko sa PESO Baliwag at kay Mayor dahil isa po ako sa naging benepisyaryo ng free skills training dahil nagkaroon po ako Massage Therapist NC II dahil nung nasa trabaho po ako wala po akong certificate ngayon maipagmamalaki ko sa iba na may Massage  Therapist NC II ako”, she said. “Maganda yung naging impact sa akin ung free skills training, bukod sa dagdag kaalaman ay nakatulong din ito sa aming pangkabuhayan, masarap pong ibahagi sa iba at yung mga anak ko natututo na rin po sa akin” said by the beneficiaries of Bread and Pastry named Ms. Erlinda Gerado.

All the graduates of this program are being encouraged to coordinate with PESO Baliwag to facilitate assistance either to wage employment or self-employment.
