Congratulations, scholars!

Twenty days ago, they were charcoal makers. Now (20 days later), they've become full-fledged carpenters and masons.

Last November 30, thirty-five men from the barangays of Buhisan, Toong, Sapangdaku and Pamutan finally received their certificates of training after completing the 20-day course on Basic Carpentry and Masonry under the Don Bosco Technology Center. This training course is a component of the diSop Butterflies & Trees Project.

Attending the graduation ceremony were DBTC-TVED Training Director Fr. Rex Carbilledo, SDB; DBTC-TVED Trainor Marcia Roma, Jr.; and PBSP Visayas Executive Committee Member Rogelio Lim.

Following their graduation, the scholars will undergo a TESDA Accreditation Assessment for their NC II certification.
