Negros Occidental’s entry is among the top ten finalists for the Tatak TESDA Video Making Contest-School Category.
The video features Mark Escora, a polio-victim since birth and a high school graduate, who availed of the Negros Occidental Language and Information Technology Center (NOLITC) and TESDA’s finishing course for call center agents.
Escora, born with disability has worked as a “barker” for seven years to support himself and his family.
The provincial government through NOLITC was able to help him finish his course and land a job in one of the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) companies in Bacolod City.
He presently holds a supervisorial position after being promoted in just a year.
All top ten entries will be posted on TESDA Facebook Fan Page starting April 15 to April 24. The entry with the most number of “likes” shall be considered the People’s Choice Award.
The winning LGU of the contest will receive scholarship grants for out-of-school-youth from TESDA.
Gov. Alfredo Marañon, Jr., is appealing to all Negrenses to support the entry by liking the video on TESDA’s fan page and share the link to relatives and friends here and abroad.
The awarding ceremony is slated May 1 at the PAGCOR Grand Theater in Parañaque City during the Tatak TESDA Film Festival. */Capitol News
