The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority and the Metro Manila Mayors’ Spouses Foundation, Inc. have joined forces for the Special Skills Training Program for Marginalized Workers.

The program will benefit the urban poor, disadvantaged women, informal workers and other marginalized workers who have no permanent jobs or livelihood, Mamondiong said.

Through the MOU, Tesda and the MMMSFI will give free skills training to the marginalized workers of Metro Manila “so they would have enough skills when they are finally employed,” he added.
