DOLE 3 turns over livelihood carts to 20 Aetas in Porac

 

PORAC - Some 20 identified members of the Aeta community in five barangays of Porac each receive a livelihood cart, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Regional Office No. III announced Monday, October 28.

Regional Director Zenaida Angara-Campita reported to Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III that the beneficiaries each received a P20,000 worth Negosyo sa Kariton (“nego-kart”) with raw materials under the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program.

During the turnover, Angara-Campita urged more informal sector workers to avail of the Department’s Kabuhayan Program. “Prayoridad po sa programang ito ng DOLE and mga kasamahan natin sa hirap at mga matagal ng walang trabaho, kabilang na rito ang mga Indigenous People (IP), magulang ng mga batang manggagawa o child laborers, matatanda, mga magsasakang walang sariling lupain at iba pa. Kasama po ninyo kami sa pagpapaunlad ng inyong kabuhayan pati na rin ng inyong pamumuhay,” Angara-Campita explained. (DOLE’s livelihood program gives priority to the urban poor and long-term unemployed including Indigenous People, parents of child laborers, elderly, landless farmers, and others. Together, we work to improve your livelihood as well as your quality of life.)

In a short message, DOLE Information and Publication Service Director Rolly Francia mentioned that the awarded livelihood is a joint effort by the Rotary Club and DOLE. “Sana po ay pagyamanin ninyo ang tulong na ito ng Department of Labor and Employment at ng Rotary Club. Malay niyo sa susunod na panahon ay maragdagan pa natin ang mga maibibigay na nego-kart,” Francia added. (We hope you nurture and grow the assistance given to you by DOLE and Rotary Club. And who knows? Maybe we can still add more next time.)

On behalf of the beneficiaries, Reggie Abuque, Barangay Chairman of Camias, thanked the Department for going an extra mile to reach their community.

The 20 beneficiaries came from the barangays of Camias (8 beneficiaries), Diaz (3 beneficiaries), Villa Maria (3 beneficiaries), Inararo (3 beneficiaries), and Sapang Uwak (3 beneficiaries).
