Cagayan de Oro City --- The Department of Labor and Employment, Regional Office No. X (DOLE-X) celebrated the 7th Informal Sector Labor Day on 13 June 2018 at De Luxe Hotel, this city.  The theme, “Manggagawa sa Impormal Sektor, Pagkakaisa Tungo sa Patas na Makabuluhang Pagbabago,” is anchored with the Sustainable Livelihood Framework (SLF) thru the DOLE Integrated Livelihood and Emergency Employment Program (DILEEP).

 

DOLE-X Regional Director Atty. Joffrey M. Suyao reported that 40 livelihood beneficiaries, region-wide attended. Further, the winning livelihood success story videos of Tingco-tingco Boat and Fishing Project of Kahugpungan sa Masilakong Mangingisda (KASAMMA) Organization of Sagay and the PisoNet project of Mr. Axel Salise of Mambajao, Camiguin under the search for the Best DOLE-assisted Livelihood Projects in the entire country, were shown to encourage the beneficiaries to pursue and sustain their respective projects.

 

DOLE Undersecretary Joel Maglunsod, as guest speaker, informed the beneficiaries that the Labor Day for the workers in the informal sector is celebrated annually every after the nationwide May 1 event. He assured that DOLE helps and assists every worker regardless if they are from the formal or informal sector, like the Indigenous People (IPs), fishermen, or farmers. Usec Maglunsod encouraged that the projects should be sustained and members capacitated. He highlighted that sustenance of the projects should be concretely supported by the economic cluster of the government. He then advised the beneficiaries to approach their nearest DOLE Provincial Field Office for assistance.

The open forum was attended by DOLE-X, the DTI, TESDA, DOST, and RTWPB-X as panelists. Each group or association presented their project proposals for livelihood enhancement. The panel suggested ways and means to make their projects viable and sustainable. Likewise, Department Order No. 173-17 or the Revised Guidelines on the implementation of the DOLE Integrated Livelihood and Emergency Employment Program was presented.

 

For the province of Camiguin, the KASAMMA organization presented proposal for project enhancement, a diversification to bottled sardines similar to Panghiawan Farmer’s Association’s Meat Shop Project. Associations from other provinces  presented their proposals which will be enhanced for another activity showcasing their projects with the presence of BWSC officers.

 

With the inputs of the panel, the groups/associations will finalize their proposals for implementation under DOLE-X’s budget next year.
