To continue the commendable effort of the Regional Training Center Korea Philippines Vocational Training Center (RTC-KPVTC) and SAKADAB, Los Amigos, Calinan, Davao City to promote inclusive and sustainable development, a strategic plan was deliberated to conduct again a training especially for the people with disabilities (PWDs) in said place. To recall, last November to December 2022, 25 beneficiaries including 15 persons with disabilities (PWDs) were trained by the Center on Dressmaking NC II aimed at enhancing the livelihood opportunities of the beneficiaries. The initiative exemplifies the commitment of the RTC-KPVTC to empower marginalized individuals and promote their socio-economic inclusion.
The Dressmaking NC II program covered a comprehensive curriculum that included theoretical lessons, practical hands-on training, and industry-relevant techniques. Participants learned about fabric selection, pattern making, sewing machine operation, garment construction, and quality control. The program also incorporated essential modules on entrepreneurship and business management, empowering the participants to establish their own dressmaking businesses or find employment in the local garment industry.
By enabling PWDs and beneficiaries to start their own dressmaking businesses, the program not only provides a source of income but also instills a sense of pride, accomplishment, and self-reliance. Moreover, the skills acquired through the training program can be utilized in various other areas of the garment industry, opening up opportunities for employment and career growth.
