The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) recently rolled out its Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program in Sarangani to provide emergency employment to the province’s displaced, underemployed, and seasonal workers.
The 939 qualified beneficiaries were composed mostly tricycle drivers, vendors, construction workers, and overseas Filipino workers affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Beneficiaries in Alabel and Malapatan towns were assigned to work at the Sarangani National Sports Academy (SaNSA) facilities, and will receive P5,000 each at the end of the work period.
With a budget of P5 million, the provincial TUPAD program was facilitated by Sen. Manny Pacquiao, Sarangani Rep. Rogelio Pacquiao, Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon, and the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, with the help of DOLE Region 12 and DOLE Field Office - Sarangani.
