by Lito Dar

Baguio City (21 February) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo recently launched the Comprehensive Livelihood Emergency Employment Program (CLEEP), which is designed to protect the most vulnerable sectors from threats and consequences of reduced or loss income as a result of the present global economic crisis.

For the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), it has aligned its "Self Employment Assistance para sa Kaunlaran" or SEA-K and their Cash-for- Work or CFW to the CLEEP.

Hiyasmin Zambrano of DSWD-CAR in a radio interview explained that for the livelihood component, there is the SEA-K program, wherein the DSWD provides seed capital assistance to organized groups, composed of 15 to 25 individuals.

For the emergency employment component, they have the CFW, which is a "cost sharing" program, in which the DSWD shoulders a part of the labor component of an LGU based project.

According to Zambrano, DSWD Sec Esperanza Cabral has just recently launched the CLEEP program in Dolores and San Juan, Abra where awarded assistance to two SEA-K groups in the province and CFW assistances for the construction of a community learning center in Dolores and repair of an irrigation system in San Juan.

In a related news, DSWD-CAR put up an "adoption (information) desk" in SM City Baguio, Friday, as part of the observance of the "Adoption Consciousness Week" from Feb 16-22. The observance aims to increase the public's awareness level on issues related to adoption..
