From the Sun Star-Zamboanga (Nov 13): US ambassador to visit Zambo City
UNITED States Ambassador Philip Goldberg will be the keynote speaker Friday in the graduation ceremony of 181 out-of-school-youth (OSY) on livelihood skills training in Zamboanga City.
The livelihood skill training was conducted under the auspices of the US Embassy through the United States Agency for International Development (USAid) Mindanao Youth for Development (MYDev) project.
The five-year USAid project will actively engage at least 19,000 OSY in workforce and community development activities by developing their basic education competencies, livelihood capabilities, and life and leadership skills for civic engagement.
The US Embassy said in a statement Thursday that Goldberg will attend the signing of the Cities Development Initiative between the American government and Zamboanga City Government.
The Cities Development Initiative, which is part of the US-Philippines Partnership for Growth, aims to unleash the development potential of this city through collaboration in the areas of health, education, environment, and economic and investment promotion.
