DOLE BATANGAS AWARDS NEGOKART TO 40 INDIVIDUALS FROM IBAAN

40 individuals composed of solo parents, persons with disabilities (PWDs) and unemployed from Ibaan, Batangas received livelihood assistance from the Department of Labor and Employment Batangas Provincial Office (DOLE BPO) in an awarding held recently. The assistance worth P30,000 were given in the form of Nego-kart and accessories (stove, LPG, cooking materials, utensils, barbecue grills, etc.). These will be used to start their food business.

Mayor Edralyn Joy Salvame, Ms. Lea G. Catapang (PESO Manager), Cong. Lianda Bolilia (4th District), Jane De Torres (Board Member Jessie De Veyra’s Representative), Lynne Bancoro (Chief of Staff - District 4 Congressional Office) headed the formal awarding of starter equipment. Dir. Predelma M. Tan of DOLE-BPO, together with Ms. Salvacion Kalalo (DILEEP Focal Person) and Ms. Remalyn Bautista (DILEEP Staff) were also present in the gathering.

In her speech, Dir. Tan expressed her appreciation for the trust, cooperation and continued support of LGU Ibaan to DOLE’s programs.

“Sa pakikipagtulungan ng lokal at district government, unti-unting nakikilala ang programa ng DOLE. Marami na ang nakaka-alam ng aming programa hanggang sa grassroot level ng ating community, sapagkat ang programang ito ay para talaga sa ating mga disadvantaged workers. Masaya kami na ang aming tanggapan ay patuloy na pinagkakatiwalaan ng mga namumuno ng bawat bayan at distrito”

Mayor Edralyn Joy Salvame, on the other hand, emphasized how fortunate the beneficiaries are to have this kind of assistance.

"Mapalad ang bayan ng Ibaan na isa sa mga iilan pang bayan na nabiyayaan ng tulong pangkabuhayang Negokart ito ni DOLE. Aking tanging hiling na ang ibinigay na negokart ay maalagaan at huwag itambak lamang, sapagkat hindi lahat ay nabibigyan ng ganitong opotunidad. Nawa'y maging inspirasyon ito ng bawat isa upang ituloy ang buhay at patuloy na magsumikap sa kabila ng mga pag-subok sa buhay ng bawat isa”

Cong. Lianda Bolilia extended her gratefulness to the local and national government in helping the Filipino people who suffered during the COVID 19 pandemic.

"Ngayong panahon ng pandemya, bilang mga namumuno malaking hamon kung paano matutugunan ang problema sa kabuhayan at trabaho ng ating mga kababayan.

Itong negokart ay tulong mula sa pondo ng gobyerno, buhat sa buwis ng taong bayan. Hindi nyo ito kailangang tanawing utang na loob sa aming mga namumuno sapagkat ito ay aming responsibilidad.

She ended her talk with these words of gratitude and encouragement. “Salamat sa inyong pagtitiwala sa lokal at national na pamahalaan. Sama-sama tayong magtiwala sa ating mga sarili na kaya nating malampasan ang pandemyang ito. Matatapos din ito at babalik tayo sa sa normal nating buhay at magiging masayang muli."

The assistance of DOLE does not end in the giving of start-up materials. DOLE-DILP personnel shall conduct regular monitoring to determine the progress of the projects. They shall be guided further on the proper operations and implementation of their business.
