Bangued, Abra – In a bid to give a capital to those who want to earn a living, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) in Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) has released P22 million to Abra communities.

DOLE-Abra Provincial Head George Lubin, Jr. said fifteen (15) organizations received assistance under the livelihood project and Tulong Pangkabuhayan for Disadvantage/Displaced persons (TUPAD) project. Under the project, recipients have different activities that aims to help them earn a living.

“The Tupad project, is an emergency employment program where residents will be working for a minimum of 10 days and a maximum of 30 days. Lubin said.

Lubin added that in Tupad, one example is the repair and rehabilitation of a slope protection and farm to market road in San Juan, there are eight barangays and there are 510 people who will be working for ten days. The beneficiaries will be receiving around P4.6 million as their wage in working together in their community. Their attendance through their daily time record will show how much would be paid to them.” Those who will be working are required to have simple bookkeeping where they will be logging their financial statements. Through this, the Dole can monitor if project working or not. “The Dole field office in Abra will be also helping us to monitor the different organizations how sustainable their work and we aim them to do their best in working. We hope the residents will be trying their best to make money with the small amount the government has given to them for their development” De Leon said. Dole has also given assistance to Ifugao organizations last month under the Tupad program./ with reports from Christopher Tugadi, dole-abra field office.
