Villar makes sure more Pinoys will benefit from Build Program

Making sure that more Filipinos will benefit from the country's Build, Build, Build Program, re-electionist Senator Cynthia Villar brought construction training courses to the communities.

Through the Villar Social Institute for Poverty Alleviation and Governance (Villar SIPAG), Villar said ten mobile construction schools were deployed to different areas in the country to teach courses on masonry for men and painting for women.

"We want to help our kababayan to benefit from the construction boom para sila ang mabigyan ng trabaho kaya dinadala natin ang training program sa kanila," Villar said.

The Misis HanepBuhay of the Nacionalista Party said the mobile construction schools are in addition to five physical schools established in Cavite, Bulacan, Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo and Davao.

Under the program, the trainors were provided by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) while Villar SIPAG provides the training facilities and their job placements after one and a half months of training.

"Our trainees from Baseco are now deployed in one of our company's construction sites in Calamba. They stay in our on-site dormitories and were allowed to go home to their families on weekends after receiving their salaries," Villar said.

In her campaign sorties, Villar encouraged the public to avail of the free trainings and immediately get a job after training. She said in her family's home-building company alone, there is a need for 15,000 construction workers yearly.

"Isa ito sa mga programa namin na nakakapag-bigay ng hanapbuhay sa ating mga kababayan. Sana mas marami ang makapag-avail nito dahil marami talagang trabaho ngayon sa construction," Villar said.
