PORAC -- Single parents from this town received their nego-trailer as means of livelihood from Board Member Fritzie David-Dizon.
The nego-trailer is a livelihood project of the Provincial Government of Pampanga in partnership with the Department of Labor and Employment (Dole).
David-Dizon said that the single parents were organized in the town to enable them to work together and earn a decent living. She added that the livelihood assistance aims to give livelihood to the beneficiaries and will help them earn a living by generating income for the members and the organization.
The brand new nego-trailers are composed of a rolling kitchen, complete with equipment and utensils such as small kitchen sink, two-door refrigerator, two-burner gas stove, a set of kitchen utensils, fryer, toaster and microwave, David-Dizon said.
David-Dizon reminded the beneficiaries that they should appreciate and cherish the nego-trailer granted to them by the provincial government as it is both a blessing and responsibility to run a business and attain the goals of a thriving entrepreneur.
The livelihood and emergency employment assistance, which was sourced from Dole's Integrated Livelihood and Emergency Employment Program, is geared toward empowering the marginalized sector.
David-Dizon said that the project will greatly help the single parents in the town adding that it would the first time that such assistance would be given to the particular sector.
"Single parents need all the help they can get. It is difficult raising a child more so if you are all alone. Government needs to step in," David-Dizon said.
