The turnover also came in time for the 2022 Brigada Eskwela. Classes are to begin on August 22 in a blended capacity and will operate full force in November.
Mr. Reynaldo Lee, President of TC-FCCCII, spoke on behalf of the organization.

He shared that their local group is also planning to initiate their own local school project, separate from the usual national-funded classrooms.
In his message, Mayor Lechonsito responded that Mr. Lee's statement is a welcome news to the local government as he had just allocated a counterpart budget to projects such as this classroom donation.
The mayor also assured the CSDT that an LGU budget has been allocated for 2022 Brigada Eskwela. An office of the LGU will also be deployed to each school to help with their preparation for the school opening. On top of that, Mayor Lechonsito also assured to deploy equipment and personnel from the City Engineering Office to help fix the RMES's grounds that has been damaged due to the incessant rains.

In a bid to help the city government in its efforts of restarting the local economy hardly hit by the COVID-19, the Department of Labor and Employment continues to provide it with various interventions, the latest of which is the hiring of twelve government interns deployed in the barangays where they reside. These interns will work under the Government Internship Program (GIP) of the DOLE that aims to provide young workers opportunity to work in government agencies. Basically, the program serves as a training ground for future government employees. The internsโ€™ tasks are anchored in the national governmentโ€™s National Employment Recovery Strategies (NERS) as well as the DOLEโ€™s Mission RACE or Rebooting Economies through Community Engagement that aims to create concrete strategies to deal with workers displaced by the pandemic. Under the Mission RACE program of the DOLE, each GIP beneficiary or government intern will be called as Healthy Economic Recovery officers or HERO. One of them, named as Local HERO, will be assigned to the City LGU PESO and will be tasked to supervise the implementation of the program at the barangay level. As to the selection of barangays provided with GIP slots, the first eleven Barangay LGUs that have established their respective Barangay PESOs were prioritized. These barangays are: Tina, New Carmen, San Rafael, Lancheta, Upper Katungal, Rajah Muda, San Antonio, New Lagao, Baras, San Pablo, and New Isabela. The government interns will complement the LGUโ€™s Public Employment Service Office (PESO) to carry out community engagements in the form of livelihood trainings and profiling of labor market situations in the barangays. By generating a true picture of the barangayโ€™s labor market, the government can subsequently identify and implement the necessary interventions to help the economy. The beneficiaries started rendering their duty in their respective barangays on June 1 and will continue their immersion in the next six months. Their outputs will be used by the DOLE and the City LGU in identifying specific interventions to be implemented. (LGU Information)

With her knowledge and skill in baking, Ann Rhea Gomez wished to have her own oven or pugon so that she can go full blast in her baking business. Her wish has been granted today.

Forty-eight workers in Tacurongโ€™s informal economy received their livelihood starter kits and nego-karts in a turnover ceremony held at the mini-gym of Barangay San Pablo.

Thirty-nine beneficiaries are all residents of San Pablo, while nine others who are parents of children at risk of child labor, came from other barangays in the city.

The beneficiaries of the project are engaging in various businesses such as baking, welding, food vending, dressmaking, vulcanizing and carpentry among others.

The Department of Labor and Employment funded the project under its DOLE Integrated Livelihood and Emergency Employment Program (DILEEP), a grant assistance that aims to provide livelihood for the poor, vulnerable, and marginalized workers.

DOLE downloaded the funds amounting to P798,309.40 to the barangay council of San Pablo that also serves as the Accredited Co-Partner (ACP) in this undertaking. An additional amount for GSIS insurance coverage of the beneficiaries was also paid by the DOLE.

The Public Employment Service Office of the city government of Tacurong assisted the barangay council in the implementation of the project.

Present during the turnover ceremony were DOLE Sultan Kudarat Field Office representative Supervising Labor and Employment Officer Willie Concepcion together with Donna Baron.

Mayor Angelo Montilla was represented by City Councilor David Salazar, City Accountant Orly Edica, and PESO Manager Allan Freno.

All members of the barangay council headed by Punong Barangay Rodolfo Jacob were present during the event.

The implementation of the livelihood project in San Pablo came in the heels of the councilโ€™s passage of a barangay resolution creating its Barangay PESO.

Barangay PESO Focal Person and Barangay Kagawad Ma. Luisa Acosta is grateful to the help of DOLE and the City LGU in the impementation of the program.

Meanwhile, Punong Barangay Jacob appealed to the beneficiaries to really take good care of the starter kits and nego-carts they received.

โ€œIpamalas natin na hindi nasasayang ang perang inilabas para sa proyektong ito. Gamitin natin ito para makadagdag sa ating araw-araw na kita,โ€ Jacob said. (LGU Information)

Two hundred twenty young Tacurongnons who are either displaced from work or currently unemployed benefited from a temporary employment under the Tulong Panghanapbuhay para sa Ating Displaced/Disadvantaged Workers (TUPAD) of the Department of Labor and Employment.

The DOLE-funded job program amounting to P751,000.00 was materialized through the initiative of Sangguniang Kabataan Federation of Tacurong City under its president, Maria Cristina Duadua, with the help of the Local Youth Development Office of the city government.

The SK Chairpersons of the 20 barangays were the ones tasked to identify and select the qualified beneficiaries for the program.

Orientation and profiling of qualified beneficiaries were already done in four clustered areas and facilitated by the DOLE Sultan Kudarat Field Office, LGU City PESO, and the SK Federation.

Under the TUPAD, each of the beneficiaries will receive wages amounting to P3,360 in exchange of a ten-day work in their respective barangays.

Another benefit each beneficiary will get from the DOLE TUPAD is to have the opportunity of being freely enrolled to and covered by GSIS Group Personal Accidental Insurance for a period of one year.

In consideration of the current community quarantine restrictions, the nature of work will be confined to disinfection and sanitation of certain areas in their barangays or other similar work that would avoid mass gathering. (LGU Information)
