The head of the Ministry of Social Development (Mides), Martín Lema, visited, this Thursday the 11th, dependencies of the Ministry of Transportation and Public Works (MTOP) where 63 members of the Accesos del Mides program work. There they carry out tasks of administration, maintenance, painting, blacksmithing and carpentry, because the objective is to generate job placement opportunities and greater autonomy, said Lema.
The tour was also accompanied by the Undersecretary of Mides, Andrea Brugman; his peer from the MTOP, Juan José Olaizola, and the National Director of Architecture, Santiago Borsari.
Accesos is a socio-educational and labor program that is integrated with people coming, for the most part, from other Mides projects. It consists of two phases, the first, of seven months of protected work, offered by public institutions and departmental governments, with a social benefit equivalent to a national minimum wage. In this, participants receive training to acquire and strengthen skills. In the second stage, these people apply to be inserted in companies according to their profiles.
The purpose of the program is to generate opportunities and promote the inclusion in the formal labor market of people between 18 and 64 years of age, especially women and young people in situations of socioeconomic vulnerability.
Lema explained that the objective of visiting the offices where users of Accesos work is to closely monitor the process of task development and training. She reported that those involved receive different tools through sheltered work and training in trades. “What matters in this process is that the participants end up with greater autonomy,” Lema asserted.
Meanwhile, Olaizola considered the performance of the members of Accesos in the development and execution of daily tasks in the portfolio positive and highlighted the value they give to the opportunity to learn trades in the assigned areas. He maintained that it is an enriching experience, in which they participate with a very good disposition and that they adapt to the tasks entrusted to them. Presidency
