SABANGAN, Mountain Province – Another resident for this municipality was successfully deployed to work in a tomato factory in Japan as part of the ongoing efforts of influential families to provide sustainable livelihood for the qualified individuals who pass the stringent requirements and tedious processes.
Dexter Badaran, president of the Manila-based Philippine Human Resource Global Information Center (PHGIC), named the latest overseas worker from this municipality to be deployed to Japan as Cherry Alvero who will be working in a tomato factory in Komamoto.
Alvero, who will be working with D Craft Corporation, a tomato producer in Komamoto, is the 4th farmer from the province to be deployed to Japan under the Join Us for Progress program of the Dominguez family for qualified residents.
Badaran disclosed that another batch of farmers from the province will also be deployed to Japan after they complete the requirements and the processes involved for them to get to their jobs after having undergone the rigid Nihongo language training.
By next month, Badaran claimed there will be some 24 individuals from the different parts of the province who will be interviewed by their prospective employers in preparation for their deployment to their potential workplaces in Japan in the next several months.
The PHIC official revealed it will take some 3 months for a worker to be deployed for their overseas work after having passed the interview of their employers and the completion of their requirements and the processes involved for the said purpose.
According to Alvero, the earliest that a qualified overseas worker can be deployed to Japan is around 2 months if the employer urgently needs the workers while it will take a maximum of 6 to 7 months for them to be deployed depending on the prevailing circumstances.
Earlier, three farmers involved in organic farming from the province deployed to Komamoto in separate tomato companies that need their expertise after having undergone the training for their assigned work.
Those who were earlier deployed to Komamoto were Estefania Buyagao, 29, married and a native of Balili, Bontoc; Christen Jane Mangay-at, 25, single and a native of Poblacion, Bauko and Jolina Ayban, 24, single and a native of Lusad, Sabangan.
Buyagao is employed by the Sun Rise Corporation, Ayban was hired under the Shinokawa Corporation while Mangay-at is employed under the Mizutani Juchine Corporation.
Among the works of the deployed overseas workers include farm preparation, harvesting and changing the greenhouses.
The three newly deployed farm workers from Mountain Province previously acquired their respective certificate of competencies on organic farming through the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) training center based in Sabangan and completed their Nihongo language training under Sage Asian Language And Education Center Bulacan.
