1,000 ‘Digong’s Day for Women’ attendees get scholarships from TESDA

MANILA, April 3 (PNA) -- About 1,000 attendees of “Digong’s Day for Women” were given scholarships by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), the agency said Monday.

”Digong’s Day for Women” was held at the Kalayaan grounds in Malacanang last Friday, to cap off the National Women’s Month celebration.

During the event, President Rodrigo Duterte told women supporters how much he respects women, and even cited that even when he was the Davao City mayor, he already created ordinances to protect their welfare.

While some people think President Duterte has a bad boy image, he clarified during the event that he has never been disrespectful to women, adding that he has daughters who might be subjected to abuses.

TESDA told the Philippine News Agency that the recipients of scholarships came from different sectors of the society, and were pre-selected by the Palace. “Our commitment is to provide them with scholarships, skills training,” it added.

The agency handed the certificates to beneficiaries, and said these scholarships can also be used by their relatives.

Scholars can enroll in any course in the Training for Work Scholarship Program.

In a statement, TESDA Director General Guiling Mamondiong said the agency will continue to support the President’s programs, particularly on providing women with technical vocational skills.

”We want to help uplift the lives of Filipinos, by providing free skills training,” he said.

Mamondiong added that anyone interested to avail of a free skills training may inquire in their office, or check agency’s website.

Meanwhile, aside from TESDA, other agencies which supported the “Digong’s Day for Women” event were the Departments of Tourism; Health; Transportation; Social Welfare and Development; and Interior and Local Government. (PNA)
