The Department of Labor and Employment Region IV-A through its Quezon Provincial Office (QPO) released P2,000,000 worth of livelihood grant to the Local Government of Tagkawayan for the provision of fiber glass motorized fishing boats which is expected to benefit 232 fisher folks belonging to 15 fishing associations in the said municipality.

Around 20 fishing boats will be constructed from the grant released to the project proponent. Mayor Luis Oscar T. Eleazar personally received the check from DOLE QPO Head Edwin T. Hernandez on May 20, 2020 at the office of the Municipal Mayor in Tagkawayan, Quezon.

Originally, the said project was conceptualized prior to the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) to support the town’s poor and marginalized fishing sector. Nevertheless, the release of the livelihood support is very timely considering that a lot of informal workers lost their soure of income because of the imposition of the ECQ.

“Tamang tama po ang pagkakaloob ng tulong na ito mula sa DOLE dahil nagkataon naman na may gagawin ang LGU na training ng paggawa ng fiber glass boat kaya yung mga mag undergo ng training sila na din ang gagawa ng mga bangka,” Mayor Eleazar mentioned.

The simple awarding ceremony was witnessed by Tagkawayan PESO Manager Sarina Añonuevo and livelihood coordinator Ms. Anna Louella Villanueva. Likewise, Mr. Ohmar Lorena, DOLE Quezon Livelihood Focal Person, also attended the activity.
