DOLE BATANGAS PROVIDES LIVELIHOOD ASSISTANCE TO 40 INDIVIDUALS FROM MATAAS NA KAHOY

 

Recently, 40 qualified individuals composed of solo parents, persons with disabilities (PWDs) and the unemployed from Mataas na Kahoy, Batangas, received livelihood assistance from the Department of Labor and Employment Batangas Provincial Office (DOLE BPO). The P30,000 worth livelihood assistance were given in the form of nego-kart and accessories (stove, LPG, cooking materials, utensils, barbecue grills, etc.) for use in their food businesses.


Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III led the formal awarding of starter equipment to said beneficiaries, together with Mataas na Kahoy Municipal Mayor Janet Ilagan, Vice-Mayor Jay Ilagan and DOLE IV-A Regional Director Exequiel Ronie A. Guzman with the able support of Ms. Salvacion Kalalo (DOLE BPO DILP Focal Person).
In his speech, RD Guzman conveyed his appreciation for the trust, cooperation and continued support of everyone to DOLE’s programs.

“Maraming salamat sa pag iintay at pagdalo ng lahat. Hindi ito magiging posible kung hindi dahil sa pag tutulungan ng bawat isa. Sapagkat ang programang ito ay para talaga sa ating mga disadvantaged workers.” RD Guzman said.

“Merry Christmas and Happy New year sa inyong lahat. Masaya kami na ang aming tanggapan ay patuloy na pinagkakatiwalaan ng mga namumuno ng bawat bayan at distrito,” he added.
Mayor Janet Ilagan, for her part, underscored the great opportunity given to her constituent to have availed of the DOLE assistance.
"Mapalad ang bayan ng Mataas na Kahoy na isa sa mga iilan pang bayan na nabiyayaan ng tulong pangkabuhayang Negokart ng DOLE.

Nawa'y maging daan ito ng bawat isa sainyo upang maitaguyod ang inyong pamilya , maging simula ng inyong pag unlad at maging daan para matupad ang inyong mga pangarap di lang pansarili pati pangarap nyo sa inyong pamilya.
Naway ang ibinigay na negokart ay maalagaan at mas lumaki pa. Huwag ito itambak lamang, sapagkat hindi lahat ay nabibigyan ng ganitong oportunidad.”

Secretary Bello emphasized the essence of providing assistance to people who are in dire need of livelihood in this time of pandemic.
“Sabi nga ng ating pangulo huwag tipirin at ibigay ang kelangan ng bawat mamamayan ng Pilipinas sapagkat itong negokart ay 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 lalo na ngayon na tayo ay naapektuhan ng pandemya.”
In closing, Secretary Bello expressed his delight of making people happy through the intervention provided. “At least po kahit papano mayor napasaya natin ang mga kababayan nyo dito sa Mataas na Kahoy at sana ang inyong bagong taon ay magiging maligaya, maunlad at ligtas mula sa covid 19, sabay sabay tayong bumangon at umunlad. Maraming maraming salamat po ulit sainyong lahat at sabay sabay natin salubungin ang bagong taon na puno ng saya na meron kasamang pagasa".
