Orientation and profiling for livelihood assistance held for Rizal town rebel returnees

The DOLE RO2 through its Cagayan-Batanes Field Office (CBFO) attended the 1st Cagayan Provincial Mobile Force Company together with partner agencies at Rizal, Cagayan on February 9, 2022. 

Barangay Masi in Zinundungan, Rizal, Cagayan is one of the identified CTG-affected Barangays in the province with a total population of 282 household wherein 90 belong to the Eata Community. 

The CPPO earlier facilitated the successful surrender and withdrawal of support of 5 CTG and NPA in the Barrios members.

The CBFO for its part facilitated the orientation and profiling of the 5 identified rebel returnees during the activity as support to the overall goal of the CPPO and the partner agencies as a whole. 

Since the surrenderees are not well-versed in basic entrepreneurship for sustainable livelihood, they will be accommodated under DOLE’s Emergency Employment Assistance through the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) Program. They will render work service at their community with compensation.

Furthermore, the CBFO will also refer the surrenderees to the DA for further livestock livelihood assistance. 

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department Of Science and Technology (DOST), Department Of Health (DOH), Department of Agriculture (DA), Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR), Office of Civil Defense (OCD), the Cagayan Police Provincial Office (CPPO), Provincial Government of Cagayan and LGU Rizal also attended the said activity. 

The CPPO conceptualized the said community-based and charity-based Project T.A.N.I.M. (Tulong pang Anihan at para sa Nangangailangan Iaalay sa Mamamayan ng Brgy Masi) and Project T.A.W.I.D. K.A.U.N.L.A.R.A.N. (Terorismo Ay Wakasan at Iadya ang Daan patungo sa Kaayusan at Kapayapaan Ating Undangin at makibahagi sa Laban at Adhikain sa Responsible At Nagkakaisang mamamayan) in support to the wholistic approach being done through Executive Order No. 70, institutionalizing a Whole-of-Nation approach in the attainment of sustainable peace. ###
