DOLE Rizal turns over ELCAC livelihood projects

The Executive Order no. 70, the whole-of-nation approach is hereby institutionalized as a government policy for the attainment of inclusive and sustainable peace. Towards this end, the government shall prioritize and harmonize the delivery of basic services and social development packages in conflict-affected areas and vulnerable communities, facilitate societal inclusivity, and ensure active participation of all sectors of society in the pursuit of the country’s peace agenda.

One of the objectives of the Philippine Development Plan 2017-2022 is to attain inclusive and sustainable peace through intensified development and other peace-building initiatives in conflict-affected and vulnerable communities. 

In line with this, the Department of Labor and Employment Rizal Provincial Office, in close coordination with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority - Rizal (TESDA-Rizal) and the local government unit, as part of the program to “End Local Communist Armed Conflict” (ELCAC) implements the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program to the identified communities. 

Brgy. Macabud in Rodriguez, Rizal is one of the communities that received the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program assistance from the department worth Php 218,500.00. This amount is part of the Php 680,900.00 allocated fund for the livelihood program of the identified ELCAC projects within the province of Rizal. 

The community of Brgy. Macabud was awarded with the bakery project with the complete set of materials and equipment as a start-up for the livelihood. TESDA also provided the necessary trainings and seminars to the community for the bakery project. The barangay captain claimed, “Malaki po ang maitutulong ng proyekto na ito sa amin dito sa Macabud, lalo na po sa mga pamilya ng ating mabibigyan nito, lalo na po sa mga kabataan. “ 

This only signifies the help that it would bring to the identified beneficiaries is of great impact not only to the beneficiaries but also to their families and the entire community. From this project, the government aims to alleviate the conflicts and poverty in the community.
