SPL misuporta sa kababayen-an

ANG Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) sa Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) misuporta sa kababayen-an pinaagi sa paghatag og livelihood programs.

Sa 2020, taliwala sa Covid-19 pandemic, dunay 18,547 ka mga babaye ang benepisaryo sa SLP.

“When I became an association’s member, it gave me a chance to earn on my own and to provide for the needs of my family,” matod ni Valentina Razola, miyembro sa Barangay Biga Women Workers Association sa Barangay Biga, siyudad sa Toledo, Cebu.

Usa si Valentina sa mga sakop sa asosasyon nga gipadagan sa kababayen-an. Siya nagtrabaho alang sa iyang pamilya. Ang iyang bana nawad-an og trabaho sa konstruksiyon.

Si Irene Antenero, usa ka maglala o mat weaver sa lungsod sa San Francisco, Cebu, nipaambit sa kalisod sa iyang trabaho sa pagla human naapektohan sa pandemiya.

“Our life was hard. We just took crops from our backyard like camote tops or banana plantains and sell them to our neighbors to make money. It was hard earning a living during the pandemic. Orders for our native mats are scarce. We need to improvise to survive,” asoy ni Irene.

Si Irene, usa sa benepisaryo sa Livelihood Assistance Grant (LAG), kinsa nakadawat og P5,000 cash assistance gikan sa SLP. “It is a relief I now have the money to buy materials for the mats. Even if we were still in community quarantine, I continued weaving mats so that, when the situation would normalize and the quarantine lifted, I already have stocks of mats to sell,” dugang ni Irene.

Sila si Irene ug Valentina pipila lang sa mga babaye nga nakabenepisyo sa programa sa DSWD 7. (PR)
