Person-With-Disability/ STAND Association President Enriquito Tacogdoy was teary-eyed as he gave his words of commitment and thanks to the Department, “Dili ko kapugong sa akong kalipay nga gibati karon. Sa akong katigulangon, wala ko nagdahom nga naa pay grasya muabot sa akoa gikan sa ahensya sa gobyerno, ang DOLE. Kaning project namu nga pagpadako sa baboy, siguradoon namu nga mulambo kini para mahibalik ang capital ug mudaghan pa para makadungag na sa among mga gastohon pang-adlaw2x. Dakong pasalamat namo mga PWD sa programa sa DOLE nga maka benepisyo sa mga low-income and individuals” (I can’t contain the happiness I am feeling right now. With my age, I didn’t expect I would still be able to receive a blessing from the agency of the government which is DOLE. We make sure our hog fattening project will prosper so that the capital will come back and the assistance will double or more so it can surely augment our daily living expenses. A big thanks from us the PWD’s to this DOLE program that will benefit many low-income individuals.

 

Another grateful beneficiary from Tul-an Pangkabuhayan Women’s Association, President Alien Icao said, “Ika-duha nani namo nga grasya gikan sa DOLE, sa tinuod lang, ni request mi ani nga enhancement sa amoang Sewing Machine Project kay dili na maka-apas among mga machines sa kadaghan sa among orders. Dako ni ug natabang sa among mga kinabuhi, nakapa-skwela mi sa among mga anak, naka-palit mi sa mga kinahanglanon sa among pamilya. Wala mi galisod ug pangita ug mga customer kay sa among barangay, kami ra gyud ang ga-negosyo ani ug amo pud gi-market among mga produkto sama sa kurtina ug punda didto sa sentro. Ikalipay nako ug promote ang mga programa sa DOLE didto sa uban para daghan pang kinabuhi ang mu-asenso (It is our second time to receive the blessing from DOLE, in fact, we requested this enhancement of our Sewing Machine Project because the machines we currently have cannot accommodate anymore our orders.  This is of big help to our lives, we were able to send our children to school and we can buy the needs of our families. We did not even find it hard to look for customers because we are the only one who is having this kind of business in our barangay and aside from that, we also market our products such as curtains and pillow cases in the city center. I would also will be glad to promote the programs of DOLE to the community so there will be more lives that will improve.)

 

The association officers disclosed that the PFO staff was very accommodating in the processing of the project proposals that made the release of the livelihood financial assistance very timely. Moreover, the beneficiaries gave their commitments for the sustainability of the projects.

 

Lastly, the ACP ensured maximum participation in implementation and monitoring of the projects.
