DOLE Check Turnover TATVA, PWDs, TaTTaPPP

DOLE 12 gives P1.48M livelihood check to marginalized sector of Tacurong The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) 12, through its Sultan Kudarat Field Office, turned over to the city government a check amounting to P1,484,050.00 intended for livelihood projects of 102 beneficiaries belonging to the informal sector of Tacurong City.

DOLE Assistant Regional Director Arlene Bisnon and Provincial Field Officer Mary Jane Hoksuan turned over the check to Mayor Angelo ‘Roncal’ Montilla during the flag ceremony of the LGU on Monday, July 29, 2019. Members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod headed by Vice Mayor Lino Montilla were also present during the turnover and signing of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA).

Two weeks ago, the Sangguniang Panlungsod, through the sponsorship of SP Committee on Labor and Employment David Salazar, passed a resolution authorizing Mayor Montilla to enter into a MOA with DOLE for the implementation of the project.

The LGU serves as Accredited Co-Partner (ACP) in this undertaking, which means that funds for the project will be deposited to the Treasury Office while undergoing the procurement/bidding process. Of the total amount, P984,050.00 is allocated for individual starter kits/nego-karts of 66 beneficiaries that also include fourteen Persons With Disability (PWD) and fourteen drug surrenderers who have completed the six-month community-based rehabilitation under the Tabang Tatap para sa Pagbag-o, Paglaum, kag Pagtuon (TATAPPP).

Some of the starter kits requested by the beneficiaries were welding machines, sewing machines, carpentry tools, compressors for vulcanizing project, and carinderia package among others. Meanwhile, the remaining P501,800.00 of the total amount is intended for the water refilling business, which is an enhancement project of the Tacurong Terminal Vendors Association (TATVA).

In his message, Mayor Montilla challenged the beneficiaries to take good care of the projects given to them. “Ang dalagku nga negosyo nagahalin sa gamay nga proyekto. Updan naton sang kapisan kag dedikasyon ang oportunidad nga ginhatag sa aton”, he said. The livelihood undertaking coursed through the LGU is under the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program (DILP), which gives skilled beneficiaries from the informal sector the opportunity to avail of starter kits or nego-karts.

For the individual project, each beneficiary is eligible to receive kits amounting to P15 to P20 thousand. Group projects could go up to half a million pesos depending on the proposal. The Public Employment Service Office (PESO) is now tasked to facilitate the preparation of procurement documents for bidding of the livelihood projects.

The PESO is also mandated to do the monitoring of projects once they are turned over to the recipients. (ASF, LGU Information)
