PIA Press Release

DOLE grants assistance to two organizations in Mt Province

by Juliet Saley

BONTOC, Mt. Province (30 October) -- The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) regional office granted assistance to the Mt. Province Provincial Jail Inmates Association and the Bontoc Differently Abled Organization to help them in the growing competitive environment.

DOLE Provincial Extension Unit Officer Jocelyn Culaling said the assistance is under the DOLE-Adjustment Measures Program (DOLE-AMP) thru Training-Cum-Production and come in the form of equipment, supplies and materials. This is in line with its effort to develop safety net measure to cushion whatever adverse impact the accession to WTO and to help rural workers adjust to the growing competitive environment.

Culaling said the P246,050 is used to purchase a welding machine for the Provincial Jail Inmates Association while the P144,675 will be used to purchase equipment, and supplies to upgrade the cellphone repair equipment of the Bontoc Differently Abled Group. The group is doing cellphone repair works at the DOLE office here. As its counterpart to this program, the provincial government will provide funds for meals during the conduct of training on iron works and welding to members of the Provincial Jail Inmates Association. The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) provides technical assistance to the beneficiary-organization in order to ensure the success of the project.

Although the inmates have some experience in welding, they still have to undergo further training to enhance their skills so that when they go out of the jail, they are equipped with the necessary skills to apply in starting a new life, Culaling explained.

She said the required equipment and materials are scheduled to be turned over to these two organizations next month. To ensure its sustainability, the DOLE will regularly monitor and evaluate these said projects, Culaling said. (PIA-MP) [top]
