DOLE brings aid to Quirino through Kabuhayan program

Quirino Province - A total of 34 beneficiaries of DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program (DILP) Starter Kit received their anticipated tools, equipment, and raw materials awarded on March 30 and April 4, 2022.

17 beneficiaries from the municipalities of Diffun and Cabarroguis received their requested livelihood materials on March 30; while 17 beneficiaries from the municipalities of Aglipay, Maddela, and Nagtipunan received their materials on April 4, 2022 at Poblacion Sur, Maddela, Quirino. Most of the projects involved rolling stores which promotes easily cooked meals such as fried chicken and calamari.

The aid was made possible through the initiative of former Director General/Secretary Guiling Mamondiong of Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and Director Joel M. Gonzales of Department of Labor and Employment- Region 2 (DOLE 2) which aim to revitalize the lives of the beneficiaries through livelihood undertakings especially with the COVID-19 pandemic at hand.

“Umaasa po kami na alagaan ninyo ang mga gamit na ito dahil malaking tulong ito lalo na’t nasa pandemic pa [rin] tayo. Umaasa rin po kami na sana lumago ang inyong negosyo at kung gayun nga ay pwede po kaming magparating ng karagdagang tulong sa inyo,” Provincial Head Laura B. Diciano says during their short meeting to the beneficiaries.

Moreover, DILP Focal Claire M. Joaquin emphasized the importance in monitoring their livelihood undertakings to assess their growth and provide assistance if they would need it.

“Napakalaking tulong na ito para sa amin lalo na ngayong may COVID [pandemic]. Ang pinakaimportante ngayon ay hanapbuhay at ‘yun ang natanggap naming ngayon. Maraming salamat po sa DOLE at sa ating gobyerno,” one of the ambulant vendor beneficiaries said during an interview.

The awarding program was kept simple and short to abide to the minimum health protocols even though the province is under COVID-19 Alert Level 1. ###
