Tahi-tahi na! Taytay Mayor Joric Gacula wants his constituents to make the town’s garments
People flock to Taytay for its inexpensive garments, but Mayor Joric Gacula is saddened that this garments aren’t actually made by the people of his town.
In a Facebook post, Gacula said Taytay has been hiring seamstresses from other provinces. But there are actually a lot of Taytay residents who have the time to do the same as long as they learn the skill.
This is why he is spearheading a livelihood program to teach them how to sew and make garments, and to give them machines. They could get free training from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority and from the St. John Baptist School, he added.
This kind of training would not only give new jobs to the people of Taytay, it will really help cement the town’s reputation as the garments capital!
“Sa lumalaking industrya ng Garments ng Taytay, nakaka lungkot na malaman na sa ibang probinsya pa tayo kumukuha ng mga mananahi. Madami naman mga kababaihan at mga misis na may panahon upang manahi. Ito ang proyekto ng Pamahalaan na nag bibigay ng mga makinang panahi para sa mga Misis ng TAYTAY para sa kanilang Livelihood Program. Meron din tayong free training Sa TESDA Taytay at sa St John Baptist School Taytay para turuan sila ng dress making skills. Bahagi ito ng libong makina na ipapamahagi sa mga Taytayeneo na masisipag at matiyaga.
“When one person’s livelihood changes, it can impact an entire family, then a whole community.”
#bestTaytay,” Gacula posted.
