DOLE-X, KASAMMA cleans Sagay-Camiguin coasts

 

Sagay, Camiguin --- In line with the implementation of the Green Our DOLE Program (GODP), the Department of Labor and Employment, Regional Office No. X-Camiguin Provincial Field Office (CAM PFO), in close collaboration with the members of the Kahugpungan sa Masilakong Mananagat (KASAMMA) of Poblacion, Sagay, conducted a coastal clean-up in the shorelines of the Poblacion Sagay areas on 28 June 2018.  The coastal clean-up promotes awareness and encourages the coastal communities to preserve and maintain the cleanliness of the shorelines and to rid the coastal areas of waste materials. It further aims to increase the mindfulness among the members of KASAMMA on the importance of preserving the environment for the future generations. Further, the activity is part of the Green Our DOLE Program, in exercise of the Department’s corporate social responsibility in pursuing green and healthy initiatives at the workplace.

 

The 25 members of KASAMMA and the entire DOLE-X Cam PFO staff took part in cleaning the coasts.  The garbage/waste materials gathered were segregated into biodegradable and non-biodegradable and were placed in one designated area.

 

“Kini nga kalihukan mas maayo ipadayon sa grupo, aron kanunay nga malimpyo ang kadagatan ug aron makapahigmata sa katawhan ang kamahinungdanon sa pag-amping sa kadagatan ug kinaiyan (This endeavor noteworthy to be emulated by the group, for our oceans to remain clean and also as a wake-up call to everyone the importance of maintaining the cleanliness of the oceans and the environment),” KASAMMA Chairman Fernando Ocaba remarked.

KASAMMA was awarded first place under the group category in the search for the Best DOLE-assisted Livelihood Project in the entire country for their Tingco-tingco Boat and Fishing Project on 11 May 2018 at the Heritage Hotel in Manila.

 

DOLE supports the advocacies of KASAMMA, not only through livelihood endeavors in uplifting the lives of the poor, but also on environment consciousness.
