TESDA, Ginebra partners to train unemployed bartenders

Published January 14, 2015
         Graduates of Food and Beverage Services from any technical-vocational education and training (TVET) institutions in the provinces of Iloilo and Aklan aged 18 to 35 years old and unemployed will benefit from the TESDA-GINEBRA Entrepreneurship Project.
        The project was launched in Iloilo province last January 12 and in Aklan on January 14.
        Under the project, beneficiaries will undergo trainings on bartending and entrepreneurship conducted by TESDA accredited TVETs which are funded by Ginebra San Miguel, Inc. (GSMI). They will also be provided with tool kit consisting of one set of uniform for each member, one mobile bar with tools for each group and one set of starter GSM products after graduation.
        The partnership project was realized after a Memorandum of Agreement for its implementation was signed between Secretary Joel Villanueva and GSMI President Bernard Marquez in October last year.
       It is entitled “GSMI Scholarship, 180 Livelihood Opportunities for 180 Beneficiaries” which marks GSMIs 180 years.
        The 20 beneficiaries from the provinces of Iloilo and Aklan are part of the 180 beneficiaries nationwide.
        The TESDA-GINEBRA project aims to develop a pool of trained and TESDA certified bartenders and develop entrepreneurs among tech-voc graduates who will respond to the demand for their services in the communities. It will also provide employment opportunities and source of income to the graduates and develop positive work values and behaviors among them.
