CSWDO and CLEP collaborate in paving a brighter future for residents of the Women and Children’s Shelter
Thirty-two residents are undergoing training on hair cutting, cosmetology, and reflexology. These 15-day courses are provided by certified trainers under the Community Livelihood and Extension Program (CLEP) of the City Government of Tacloban headed by Ruena Mate.
According to Women and Children’s Shelter Head Carmela Bastes, they requested the assistance of CLEP to equip residents with necessary life skills. This way, they are prepared for life after they reintegrate into their community. Bastes also shared that some of their former residents found a career from the life skills they gained while at the shelter.
