The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), together with the City Government of Valencia through the Employment and Placement Services Division (EPSD), marked the 2023 World Day Against Child Labor with the distribution of livelihood starter kits to identified parents with children at risk of engaging in child labor on June 16, 2023

Around 101 parents received starter kits worth P15,000 each under the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program (DILP). The program aimed to help qualified beneficiaries start their own businesses and generate income for their families, as well as enable their children to attend school.
School supplies were also given to the children of program beneficiaries by Dole Philippines and other stakeholders. Additionally, the DILP provided P250,000 worth of livelihood aid to the Uswag Association, one of the city’s people’s organizations.
The event was attended by Provincial Head Raul Valmores of DOLE-Bukidnon; Elna Guzman, EPSD Manager; Jun Hermosura, Executive Assistant IV; and representatives from Child Fund/Kaanib and Bukidnon Federation of Family Welfare Committees, who expressed their support for the program’s success and emphasized the importance of giving livelihood opportunities to marginalized communities as a way to reduce poverty and child labor.
