More nito basket ware training

The four-day nito-weaving skills training program in Bocboc was successfully concluded with participants from barangays Bocboc and Puting Buhangin learning how to make nito baskets, coasters and placemats.

A joint project of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Marinduque office, Cottage Industry Technology Center (CITC), Barangay Bocboc and the Office of Congressman Allan Velasco. The project has, likewise, generated the interest of other barangays in the other towns where nito vines are abundant, and are now coordinating with the DTI for similar training in their communities.
