DOLE awards sewing kits to 19 beneficiaries in Tabuk

CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga (PIA)-- The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) recently awarded sewing kits to 19 beneficiaries from the city’s micro-sewing industry.

DOLE Provincial Head Avelina Manganip said the assistance under the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program (DILP) is a joint project of the Office of Sen. JV Ejercito, Tabuk local government unit and DOLE. 

The livelihood assistance kits  consisted of one unit sewing machine, threads, needles, scissors, chalk, measuring tapes, measuring sticks, and other sewing tools costing P20,000.

Manganip said  target beneficiaries under the DILP are  from vulnerable and marginalized workers who could not afford to buy their own sewing machine and those with worn-out machines.

Juliet Gaddao, a beneficiary of the program  who works with her husband in a tailoring shop under a daily wage, said they can now work on their own.

“With our own machines, we can earn higher to support our family,” she said.

Mayor Darwin C. Estranero encouraged the beneficiaries to make use of the assistance to improve their living condition. (JDP/LL-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
