Parents of child laborers in Apayao receive livelihood aid
by Press release

The Department of Labor and Employment released P913,317 livelihood assistance to parents of child laborers and as salary to workers employed under its Tulong Panghanapbuhay para sa mga Disadvantaged Workers (Tupad).

Thirty parents of child laborers received P591,027 worth of livelihood assistance and 47 parents received P322,290 as salaries under the Tupad.

The livelihood assistance was released in the form of materials and equipment to be used for the implementation of livelihood projects.

The parents are engaged in vending, retailing, dressmaking, eatery operations, butchering, handicraft making, and piggery.

The DOLE continues to provide assistance to affected sectors. Recently, it hired 47 parents of 77 child laborers from barangays Shalom and Marag in Luna, Apayao to clean farm to market roads, pathways and declog canals as part of the disinfection and sanitation activity of both barangays.

The livelihood assistance is part of DOLE’s effort of helping parents have a decent job so they could provide for their family and prevent their children from missing classes and dropping out of school.

Other parents were referred to other agencies.

In Mountain Province, 857 workers from the informal sector have benefitted from the Tupad-Barangay Ko, Bahay Ko (#BKBK) program.

DOLE Mountain Province Provincial Head Apollo Luspian said the workers, with assistance of local health officers cleaned and disinfected homes and communities.

The Tupad #BKBK is designed to provide emergency employment to displaced informal workers.

They received a daily wage of P350 for 10 days.

This month, 100 informal sector workers are expected to benefit from the program.

The DOLE also awarded P876,010 to barangays Malayugan and Upper Atok – barangays affected by insurgency in Flora, Apayao.
