30 indigents in Abra undergo training in reeds crafts making
by Press release

LA PAZ, Abra – The Department of Social Welfare and Development through its Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) granted P504,645 worth of livelihood assistance to 30 indigents here.

In partnership with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority of Abra, members of the Liguis Runo Weavers Sustainable Livelihood Program Association (SLPA) underwent a four-day skills training on reed crafts making which ran from May 7 to 10.

Liguis Runo Weavers SLPA has 30 members, 17 of them are Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries while 13 are Listahanan-identified poor. Currently, the members are reliant on their income from farming, selling unfurnished reed craft products and daily labor.

The weavers sell their products at very low price due to lack of proper furnishing and substandard designs. After the training, they are expected to produce various quality crafts like wine carriers, placemats, trays, and star vases that they can sell for P150 per piece or higher.

“We would like to ensure that this livelihood will help improve their economic status such that these give them a permanent source of income. We also encourage other stakeholders to support the livelihood endeavors of our participants,” DSWD-Cordillera Director Janet P. Armas said.

Aside from providing livelihood, SLP also supports the enterprise development of its beneficiaries in the context of competitiveness like product development, pricing, and gaining market access.

Ayaten mi ti aramid mi kasla panag-ayat mi iti bagi mi tapnu napintas ti maibunga na kadagitoy inted da nga pang progreso an iti biag, pang-adal ti anak tayo launay tanu napintas ti bunga na dagitoy nga produkto, dagiyay anak tayo ti agsagrap, makalpas da ti adal da ken magatang da iti kayat da,” said SLPA member Rosalie Cate.

he training, the DSWD has also provided starter kits that include spray gun, cutters, saw, flyers, carving knives, cutter, and scissors.
