AT LEAST 90 inmates of the Cebu City Jail together with their beneficiaries will avail of the skills development program offered by the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology in Central Visayas (BJMP-7).

The 91 inmates witnessed the launching of the program, which is a joint project of the BJMP and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) at the Cebu City Jail.

The program called “Integration Through Skills Development Project for Inmates and Families” would provide free skills and training on courses such as bread and pastry production, barista, electrical installation and maintenance, cookery and hairdressing.

Supt. Jessie Calumpang, Cebu City Jail warden, said the 91 inmates with their beneficiaries would be the first batch to avail of the program.

Alvin Feliciano, deputy director general for operations of Tesda, who attended the event, said that this program also would cater the inmates’ family

“It is clear in our mandate in Tesda so as in the mandate of BJMP, that we are not excluding you in the society,” he said in Filipino.
