DSWD-IX releases P7.7M for Tawi-Tawi livelihood, employment program

Zamboanga City (5 February) -- The Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office IX had recently released over P7.7 million for the Comprehensive Livelihood and Emergency Employment Program (CLEEP) to aid poor, distressed, out-of-school youths and displaced persons in the different municipalities in Tawi-Tawi.

P6,462,720.00 is set for use for the program, while the remaining amount will be used for administrative expenses such as traveling expenses, capability building activities, supplies, and others.

Under the CLEEP, the targeted beneficiaries will be able to avail of the Self-Employment Assistance-Kaunlaran (SEA-K) Program and the Cash For Work (CFW) program of the National Government. The SEA-K is a continuous program of the DSWD to enhance the socio-economic skills of poor families through the organization of community-based associations for entrepreneurial development. Specifically, four (4) groups, with one hundred (100) beneficiaries are entitled to a P125,000.00 livelihood grant.

On the other hand, Cash For Work would provide the beneficiaries with temporary employment for ten (10) days: in exchange for work rendered, the recipients are provided with cash (P158.00/day/client) to meet their basic necessities. The recipients’ work includes environmental protection and sanitation, road gravelling, repair of footbridges and the construction of core shelter units.

Meanwhile, DSWD-IX officials last week visited Tawi-Tawi for a Performance Review and Evaluation Workshop (PREW) on the implementation of the Food For School Program. Likewise, the officials, in coordination with the province’s Local Government Unit led by Tawi-Tawi Vice Governor Ruby Sahali-Tan conducted a briefing on Cash For Work for the 120 beneficiaries at the Municipal Hall last Friday (January 30, 2009). The recipients started working the following day. (DSWD/PIA ZC) [top]
