DOLE RIZAL HIRES 8 ADDITIONAL TUPAD COORDINATORS TO STRENGTHEN PROGRAM IMPLEMENTATION

 

The Department of Labor and Employment Rizal Provincial Office (DOLE RPO) welcomes the eight new coordinators to enhance its DOLE Integrated Livelihood and Emergency Employment Program (DILEEP) particularly the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers Program (TUPAD) implementation in the province last March 30.

This move is in response to the rising number of requests for employment/livelihood assistance from the informal sector workers in the province. DOLE-Rizal targets to widen the scale of implementation of its known short-term employment program, the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers Program (TUPAD) this year.

TUPAD is one of the staple programs of the Department that aims to provide community-based assistance to informal sector/displaced workers by giving them emergency employment of 10 days and could be extended up to 30 days depending on the nature of work that they will perform.

Raegan Bustamante, Denise Mikaela Camalig, Rafael Franz Cuyugan, Revimar Dulin, Dianne Gutierrez, Analou Macabenta, Mykee Martinez, and Rich Charles Petero made the cut out of the almost 100 applicants who tried to apply for the TUPAD Coordinator position.

 

During their orientation, Rizal Provincial Director, Marivic B. Martinez pointed out the nature of work that the newly hired TUPAD Coordinators will undertake.

“So, what I’m trying to emphasize now is, more on fieldwork ang trabaho niyo. Not necessarily for the whole week, naka-field kayo. Pwede ring nandito kayo (sa office) dahil you need to evaluate ‘yung mga sinasubmit na documents coming from the beneficiaries, ‘yung mga DTRs, ‘yung mga kontrata,” Martinez reiterated.

Newly hired TUPAD Coordinators are tasked to assist the program Focal Person in profiling and encoding the list of beneficiaries, reviewing of applications, conduct of field monitoring of project implementation and coordination with partner Local Government Units and other stakeholders.

With a total of 15 TUPAD Coordinators in the office, DOLE-Rizal could implement the programs in different localities, simultaneously.

After the orientation, Mykee Martinez, a newly hired TUPAD Coordinator from Antipolo City shared his expectations as he ventures a new journey with the Department.

“It is expected na ‘yung job, mayroon talagang challenges. So, I’ll face it with an open mind, with sincerity at saka dedication. Because without those, I don’t think na kakayanin [ko] ‘yung work. And of course, you should have the real love or concern for people,” Mykee exclaimed.
