The City Council of Granadilla has launched a new employability plan from which 45 families benefit, including students and teaching staff, and which makes it possible that, in addition to removing the recipients of this project from unemployment, they are trained and qualified to facilitate their integration In the laboral world. The mayor, José Domingo Regalado, and the councilors Yanira González and Marcos Antonio Rodríguez welcomed the workers who will be part of this action for a period of six months.
The employment program involves an investment of 335,000 euros and is focused on work in three areas: the protection and maintenance of natural areas, the revaluation of urban public spaces and the cleaning service at home and centers for the elderly.
In this project, the contracted students present a profile without basic training, so key competences in mathematics and Spanish will be taught, as well as complementary studies. The aims of the plan are to protect and maintain natural areas (coves, roads, ravines, rubble) in good condition; cleaning of the surroundings of camping areas, streets and entrances in coastal and midlands areas, illegal dumps; provide a home cleaning service in the homes of disabled and elderly people without resources; maintenance and cleaning of municipal senior centers and enhance urban public spaces.
