DOLE’S ANGEL TREE PROJECT PROFITS 40 CHILD WORKERS

Cabarroguis, Quirino - A total of 40 Child Workers from identified End- Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC) barangays in the three municipalities of Quirino province received school supplies packages during the turnover ceremony facilitated by the Department of Labor and Employment-Quirino Field Office on August 19, 2020.

The Angel Tree Project is one of DOLE’s initiatives under the Child Labor Prevention and Elimination Program where its main objective is to provide an array of social services that may range from food clothing, educational assistance, school supplies, work and training opportunities.

Each child at risk beneficiary received a kit of school supplies that contains notebooks, pencil, clear envelope, scissor, pad paper, ball pens, pencil case, eraser, foot ruler, set of crayons, colored paper, drinking tumbler and face towel.

25 child beneficiaries were from Dibibi, Cabarroguis, 9 from Disimungal, Nagtipunan, and 6 from Alicia, Aglipay, Quirino.  

 Jeremy C. Salvador, a recipient from Nagtipunan, Quirino expressed his gratitude for the assistance he received, “Salamat po sa regalong binigay ninyo. May magagamit na ako ngayong pasukan. Ngayon lang po nagyari na bago lahat ang gamit ko” Jeremy said.

Also, Ms. Marjorie Butic, a mother of a child worker uttered her appreciation to the program. “Nagpapasalamat ako sa programa niyo. Malaking bagay na makita kong masaya ang anak ko. Di ko na din iisipin pa ang magagamit niya ngayong pasukan” she said.

The event made a significant impact on every child. It was not the items that made the awarding ceremony a memorable one but the smile in every beneficiary. The program did not only help the children but most importantly the parents who will no longer have the burden of providing school items to their kids especially this time of the pandemic.  END(HDN/DLGL).
