Through the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) of Manolo Fortich, Four Differently Abled Person (DAP) and three registered associations in Manolo Fortich were able to avail of the livelihood grant from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) on August 8, 2023, at Barangay Damilag Public Market.
This livelihood initiative intends to assist marginalized groups like landless farmers, unpaid family workers, low-wage and seasonal workers, workers who have been or are about to be displaced, and self-employed workers who are unable to make enough income. The grant aims to provide them with the necessary resources and support to establish or enhance their livelihood ventures, thus improving their economic situation and promoting their independence.
The four DAP individuals requested that their names be kept confidential for their own privacy. The three registered associations that availed of the grant with their livelihood projects includes Aggies Multi-Purpose Cooperative with their Rice Trading Project, Damilag Market Vendors Association with their Bigasan Rice Trading, and Manolo Fortich Senior Citizen Federation with their Hydroponics Project.
The associations and DAPs have been given the chance to improve their economic situation and quality of life thanks to DOLE’s assisted livelihood project with Kaanib Foundation, Inc. as its Accredited Co-partner. These grants provide a lifeline to underprivileged people and organizations, enabling them to engage in the economy and support the socio-economic growth of their local communities.
The turnover of livelihood was attended by the DOLE Provincial Head of Bukidnon, Raul L. Valmores, Barangay Chairperson Allan G. Torres Jr., PESO Manager Roger O. Molina, Market Supervisor III Engr. Rico Angelo B. Macapondag, Market Specialist Allain S. Pausanos, and Accredited Co-Partner (ACP) Erlinda T. Sayago.
