In celebration of another successful year of Beauty For a Better Life, L’Oréal Philippines hosted a graduation ceremony event at the Renaissance Convention Center in Marikina City and announced the opening of three new training centers.
The program is deployed in 30 countries with a mission to empower women in vulnerable social or economic situations by honing their skills in the field of hairdressing and providing them job and business opportunities to sustain their livelihood after completion of the program.
In the second year of Beauty for a Better Life, a total of 69 individuals from Batches 4 to 6 of Barangay Jesus Dela Peña in Marikina completed the program after undergoing daily hands-on classroom training sessions for three months under the tutelage of L’Oréal trainers.
Succeeding the training sessions is the mandatory one-week salon internship with L’Oréal’s partner salons to expose them to actual hairdressing roles and potentially expand their career options.
Since the inauguration of the program in the country in 2017, 130 of the beneficiaries’ lives have been changed for the better, receiving career training and jobs or even their own businesses in the beauty sector.
“Beauty For a Better Life is about contributing to feeling and living better, and beyond today’s festivities we look forward to seeing how their lives—and those of their families—will change,” enthused Carmel Valencia, L’Oréal Philippines corporate communications manager.
Valencia officially announced the opening of three new barangay centers in Barangay Bayong Nayon 1 in Antipolo, Barangay Western Bicutan in Taguig, and Barangay Sto. Rosario Kanluran in Pateros as part of reaching L’Oréal’s mission of training and supporting a total of 1,000 graduates with a thousand better futures by 2022 in the Philippines.
