DOLE-X Project Angel Tree and Zabdiel Foundation distribute school supplies to 796 Claveria public e

Claveria, Misamis Oriental --- The Department of Labor and Employment, Regional Office No. X (DOLE-X) - Eastern Misamis Oriental (EMO) Provincial Field Office (PFO), in partnership with the Zabdiel Foundation founded by Maria O. Moreno distributed school supplies under DOLE’s Project Angel Tree to 796 Mat-I, Luna and Lanise elementary schools in this municipality on 27 June  2017.

 

DOLE-X Eastern Misamis Oriental Provincial Field Office Chief Errol A. Natividad informed that the Department’s Angel Tree Project gives school supplies to elementary students as an aid to their basic needs per grade level. “This project is one of the activities by the DOLE-X and this provincial office as support to poor but deserving parents to at least ease the burden of equipping their children to be school-ready, since we in the Department almost prioritize education and at the same time prevent these children to become child laborers,” he added.

 

Supporting the distribution were Town Mayor Redentor Salvaleon, Public Employment Service Office (PESO) Manager Ellaine Edio, and Zabdiel Foundation Benedict O. Moreno (the son of Ms. Maria Moreno).

 

Aside from school supplies, the Project Angel Tree, a component of the DOLE Child Labor Prevention and Elimination Program, provides an array of social services that range from food, clothing, educational assistance or school supplies, and even work and training opportunities made available by sponsors or benefactors through Zabdiel Foundation (as ‘angels’) to child laborers and their families.  It aims to improve the economic and social conditions of child laborers and their families and increase the number of allies and advocates of child labor prevention and elimination.
