The TRC, formerly known as TLRC or Technology and Livelihood Resource Center, is set to spearhead DOST’s TULONG KABABAYAN PROGRAM which will give livelihood assistance for troubled balikbayan overseas Filipino workers (OFW) from countries in the Middle East.
According to TRC Director General Dennis L. Cunanan, the program is intended to open doors of new opportunities to OFW’s affected by the conflicts in the Middle East. Given the proper training and assistance, hard-working OFWs can easily retool themselves and become effective entrepreneurs, he added.
DG Cunanan said that TRC’s business packages for the displaced migrant workers shall include an entrepreneurship counseling session to help them identify the kind of business they would likely succeed in. Following this is an intensive 2-day hands-on training on setting-up the business. He added beneficiaries shall also be provided with “trial business kits” to help speed up their training and gain first hand experience. The next stage would be the business planning course, which shall guide them on how to work out an effective business plan, source it’s funding, and have it registered. After the training, Cunanan said the beneficiaries will be given a business start-up kit and shall be provided with an extended mentoring assistance package.
Qualified OFWs can avail of TRC various hands-on livelihood trainings such as production of flavored and fortified juice, layer (table egg) production, manufacture of fashion accessories, herbal bath soap, perfumes and colognes, among others. Management-oriented OFWs can also avail of other trainings such as a business operation, event planning and management, setting up a domestic ticketing office for airlines and shipping companies, bakery management, and others.
OFWs who would like to avail of the TRC livelihood packages may contact Rene Oxina at the TRC office in 103 J. Abad Santos, Little Baguio, San Juan City or at telephone number 727-6205. OFWs going home to the provinces may contact DOST’s regional offices through the office of Usec. for Regional Operations Carol Yorobe at telephone number 837-2944
