PWDs in Ifugao town need assistance

by Vency D. Bulayungan

Kiangan, Ifugao (15 August) -- Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) here are in need of funds for their livelihood projects.

Ms. Mylene Pumihic, Social Welfare Officer 1 here said that although there are two livelihood projects of the Kiangan Association of Persons with Special Abilities and Talents (KAPSAT), the sector still needs more projects to help them meet their needs.

The KAPSAT has more than 300 members with different kinds of disabilities. There are members who have multi-disabilities, in which case we involve their parents since they cannot really work, Pumihic said.

Pumihic disclosed that the two livelihood projects which the KAPSAT is now implementing are the pig and goat dispersal livelihood project and the credit facility.

According to Pumihic, there are three families each who are benefiting from the pig and goat dispersal project which started in 2004.

With the many families and with the lack of fundsr, Pumihic admitted that they are trying to source out funds from the members themselves in order to help one another uplift their living conditions.

Pumihic shared that they thought of putting up a credit facility by collecting P25.00 per PWD as lifetime membership fee, P50.00 membership fee and P10.00 for identification card. The Association was able to collect a total amount of P3,000.00 in July 2008 and used as capital. Each member is allowed to borrow P500.00 with an interest rate of 2%. (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
