KALIPI members in Abra town train on loomweaving

DOLORES, Abra(PIA) -- The municipality of Dolores will soon join the top loom weaving towns of Abra following the completion  of 33 Dolorenian women of the basic loomweaving training.

The trainees who are members of the Kalipunan ng Liping Pilipina (KALIPI) received their certificate of completion during the graduation ceremony held at Dolores Civic Center recently.

 This loomweaving project with a total budget of P953,974.00 is a priority project of Congresswoman Menchie Bernos through the Department of Labor(DOLE) Integrated Livelihood Program (DILP).

Aside from the training, the project fund  also covers the procurement of loom machines or  tilar, raw materials, trainer’s fund,  and the land and housing for the loom weaving center located in Barangay Salucag, Dolores.

Said project  is  made possible  thru the collaboration of DOLE-Abra, the LGU of Dolores and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority(TESDA).

Dolores Mayor Conde Turqueza outlined the importance of learning the skills of loom weaving as it will provide an additional income for the women.

“I congratulate everyone I hope for the sustainability of this project so that Dolores can also become an exporter of woven products soon,” Turqueza said.

 TESDA-Abra Provincial Director  Jimmicio Daoaten explained that training programs at  the local level are among  their  priority agenda the under the “TESDA sa Barangay.”

With  woven or Abel-made products now in demand in the market,  he looks forward to  training sessions particularly focused on design to support the KALIPI-Dolores in the  livelihood opportunity provided to them.

DOLE-Abra Provincial Director Christopher Tugadi said that this training program will enable the KALIPI Women to create high quality textiles and earn a sustainable income.

 Ms. Florina Padagas, one of the graduates,  expressed her gratitude to the government for providing them the opportunity to learn new skill towards having a better livelihood.

“Dakkel a yaman mi kadagiti timmulong kadakami ti daytoy a training ti panagabel ket sapay kuma ta addanto manen nayon na tapno ad-adu pay ti ammo mi nga designs [We thank everyone who helped us in this training on loomweaving, and we  hope that there’s more so that we can learn more designs],” she said.(JDP/CAGT-PIA Abra)
