The long wait for assistance to the marginalized people from Rodriguez and Baras, Rizal was put to an end when the Kabuhayan projects of the Convergence team of Rizal started. The convergence team is comprised of the Department of Labor and Employment- Rizal, Department of Trade and Industry- Rizal and the National Housing Authority.

The Kabuhayan program is a holistic approach to help the beneficiaries establish a livelihood that will lasts a lifetime. This includes the distribution of starter kits, skills training, entrepreneurship, and business work improvement seminars. Along with the trainings, DOLE-Rizal will also conduct monitoring to ensure that the beneficiaries sustain the livelihood that was given to them.

The Department of Labor and Employment awarded funds to the following accredited partners to set-off the livelihood programs provided for the beneficiaries of various “kabuhayan” such as home care, nego-kart, garments, baking etc. DOLE-RPO granted Php 13,037,610. 00 to the Children’s Mission Philippines Hills of Grace Foundation Inc. and Php 21,737,728.00 to the Skill Power Institute as the accredited partners of DOLE-Rizal in the implementation of the program.

“Pagyamanin niyo sana ang biyaya na ipinamamahagi ng ating gobyerno upang kayo ay matulungan sa inyong kabuhayan” the DOLE provincial director, Ms. Marivic Martinez, said to the beneficiaries. This was a word of inspiration for the people to remind them that what the government had given them were just the beginning and it is still up to them for their livelihood to flourish.

The first to receive trainings amongst the batch were the beneficiaries of home care products from South Ville 8B Rodriguez, Rizal. The happiness and gratitude of the people were evident as their eagerness to start with the trainings was apparent. It was 3-day training but the beneficiaries were enthusiastic all through out to learn the needed skills for their livelihood.
