Negosyo pa more: Tiangco encourages Navoteños to become entrepreneurs
Navotas City Mayor John Rey Tiangco is pushing his constituents to start their own business.
To make this possible, the politiko has started rolling out NavoNegoSerye to equip poor Navoteños with knowledge and skills on entrepreneurship.
The NavoNegoSerye is a series of seminars that aims to equip participants with livelihood skills training and teach them how to avail the city government’s Tulong Puhunan and Tulong Negosyo programs.
The City Government, through the NavotaAs Hanapbuhay Center, intends to hold 100 NavoNegoSerye this year to groups composed of at least 20 participants.
“We want Navoteños, especially those from low-income families, to learn how to start and sustain a business,” Tiangco said.
“Through the NavoNegoSerye, we aim to encourage them to venture into entrepreneurship and earn a decent living,” he added.
Tiangco also urged the participants to enroll at the Navotas Training and Assessment Institute to acquire technical-vocational skills.
“Studying at our training centers is free. You can learn bread and pastry making, dressmaking, welding, automotive servicing, and others at no cost,” he said.
“We want to give you the opportunities you may need for you to learn new skills, earn certifications especially from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), and be able to get meaningful employment,” he added.
