Give a man fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for life.

With this axiom in mind the Barangay San Jose Sangguniang Kabataan Council, under the leadership of SK Chairman Monte Tolentino, taught the youth of Sitio Pag-asa, San Jose how to make soap and dishwashing liquid as part of a livelihood program.

Sitio Pag-asa youth residents were given the raw material and then taught by resource persons the mechanics of how to actually make soap and dishwashing liquid. 

Soap making can be a profitable business. And the young people of Sitio Pag-asa can certainly help earn money as additional source of income for their families.

Soap is useful for helping remove sweat and dirt from your skin and people include soap as a regular part of their personal hygiene routine.

You may buy soap in stores, but it’s also possible to make soap at home for personal use or as additional income if you do decide to go into business. Making a mild soap can be both fun and cost effective.

Among those present during the livelihood program were San Jose SK Council’s Rey Rivera, SK Kagawads Paolene Salvador, Mikko Suarez and Angeline Pinote, SK Secretary Jackzon Remondavia as well as Janvier Gonzales and Bryan Herrera.    

The SK Council received help from the Agimat Party List as well as Antipolo City Councilors Angie Tapales, Doc Ian Masangcay, Edward O’Hara and Nixon Aranas.
