The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Region 10, through its Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP), held a turnover ceremony at the City Hall, Malaybalay City on July 11, 2023. During the event, three cheques were handed over to two Sustainable Livelihood Program Association (SLPA) recipients and an individual to serve as seed capital for their proposed livelihood projects

The primary objective of this program is to provide additional capital to Pantawid members, empowering them to become economic partners of the government. Among the beneficiaries is the Managok Rise SLPA, which received a total of P450,000.00 for their egg production project, benefiting 30 individuals with P15,000.00 each.

In line with Executive Order 70, which focuses on vulnerable conflict areas, the Tigbawan Agrisupply Project in Barangay Can-ayan was allocated P300,000.00.

Mrs. Archelie S. Pechora from Mapayag received P105,000.00 as seed capital for her proposed small income-generating project. Her husband, an environmental hero who lost his life while protecting the environment, was honored through this fund. The money will aid Mrs. Pechora’s family in starting a livelihood project and meeting their other needs.

The turnover ceremony was led by Mr. Rhandy L. Ladoroz, the Regional Program Coordinator, and Ms. April Trishia Cebilla, the Special Projects Coordinator of DSWD 10. Key focal persons were present, including Mr. Glenn C. Innovero, the Provincial Coordinator, Mr. Rey P. Valdez representing the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO), Mr. John Valmores representing Mayor Jay Warren R. Pabillaran, and counterparts from DSWD PDO, Ms. Alaiza Sumampong and Ms. Irene Acosta.

The DSWD 10’s Livelihood Fund Turnover ceremony aims to promote sustainable economic development and empower individuals and communities to become self-reliant. Through this initiative, the department continues to support the government’s efforts in poverty reduction and inclusive growth. (LGU Malaybalay)
