DSWD gives P2 M livelihood to Itogon
by Babble Mae Gorio

The Department of Social Welfare and Development through the Sustainable Livelihood Program distributed around P2.1 million worth of livelihood assistance to 105 individuals displaced by Typhoon Ompong and the ban on small-scale mining in Itogon, Benguet.

The livelihood assistance is P20,000 worth of Seed Capital Fund grant in support to the initiative of providing start-up capital for the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) for the establishment or rehabilitation of their livelihoods.

The IDPs were identified based on the assessments done on Sept. 22 until Nov. 5.

During the assessment, the IDPs identified and prepared their own project proposals based on their needs. The Implementing Project Development Office (IPDO) reviewed the feasibility of the selected livelihood and recommended it for approval.

Before releasing the assistance, the IDPO conducted a basic livelihood training, in which the beneficiaries were taught on basic bookkeeping and financial literacy.

“This is our way of helping provide them assistance and entrepreneurial skills which they can develop in order to manage their livelihood to be successful and for them to start a new life after the disaster,” OIC-Cordillera Director Janet Armas said. 

From their proposals, most of the 105 IDPs from Ucab, Tuding, Poblacion, and Ampucao are venturing into sari-sari store, hog-raising, soft broom-making, and poultry production.

After receiving their checks, the IDPs are given two weeks to purchase their materials and implement their projects with the guidance of the IPDO.

After three months, the IPDO with the local government unit will start monitoring the projects.
