“These days, women should be given the same opportunities and rights like men. We need to support women as they perform their significant roles in the society.”
These were the words of the President of the Association of Barangay Captains in Batangas City, Hon. Vilma Dimacuha when she discussed the importance of empowering women.
Just recently, the local government through her initiative provided the women of Kumintang Ibaba with Women’s ID which could be used by local women folks to avail different government services including small business capital, scholarships and even EBD Health, Philhealth cards.
Right now, Mrs. Dimacuha is coordinating with the Office of the City Veterinarian and Agricultural Services or OCVAS to provide more trainings to further empower the city’s women. These skills trainings include cosmetology, dress making, meat processing, baking and cake decorating.[tags]women empowerment, batangas, WOWBatangas, Batangas City, Vilma Dimacuha, OCVAs, Association of Barangay Captains, Kumintang Ibaba, Cake decorating, dress making, cosmetology, meat processing, women, empowerment, [/tags]
