The training was conducted through the Training for Work Scholarship program of AMA Computer Learning Center (CLC).

DSWD secretary Corazon Soliman said that the undertaking is part of the overall initiative of the agency to provide opportunities for poor families to earn regularly and support their respective needs.

?We continue to partner with various sectors in providing livelihood support and employment opportunities to Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries to help them achieve self-sufficiency especially after the program,? Soliman added.

Those who trained were 18 years old and above and at least high school graduate.

The training was conducted in nine clusters in selected areas in the province with participants coming from Nasugbu, Calaca, Lemery, Cuenca, Batangas City, Lipa City, and Tanauan City.

After the training, the AMA-CLC will endorse graduates to their partner-BPO companies.

Pantawid Pamilya is a human development program of the national government that invests in the health and education of poor households.

It utilizes the conditional cash transfer scheme where qualified households receive grants provided they comply with their co-responsibilities such as attendance of children aged 3-18 years old in school; regular health check-ups for children aged 0-5 years or pregnant member of the household, and attendance to the monthly Family Development Sessions.

As of December 2014, the program covers 4.2-million households in 17 regions of the country.
