DOLE-NCR at the Zonal Assembly of the ESGPPA Implementers

The Department of Labor and Employment was invited to the Zonal Assembly of the implementers and program managers of the Enhanced Student Grant in Aid Program for Poverty Alleviation at the Commission on Higher Education auditorium in Diliman, Quezon City.

The main objective of the study is to gather the implementers of said program to thresh-out concerns and issues and recommend actions for policy enhancement. Also in attendance were the representatives of DSWD and CHED from Regions IV-A, IV-B, and V together with the State Universities and Colleges that partnered with the implementation of the program.

During the activity, practices worthy of being showcased were presented by the Laguna Polytechnic University of Region IV-A, Mindoro State University of MIMAROPA, Bicol University of Region V, and Technological University of the Philippines of NCR. The practices centered on the development of the program beneficiaries such as remedial and tutorial classes, access to computer that promoted computer literacy, and peer meetings and discussions. The latter intervention aims to encourage better understanding between the education institution and the program beneficiaries and at the same time build camaraderie and cooperation among the student-grantees.

Representing the Office was Mr. Ryan Roberto E. Delos Reyes of the Employment Promotion and Workers Welfare Division who likewise provided inputs on the enhancement on the provision of said program. He also discussed the initiatives being implemented in NCR such as the strong coordination among the member-agencies, the Trabaho, Negosyo, at Kabuhayan Caravan, and the dissemination of information on labor standards and employment coaching to the graduating beneficiaries of ESGPPA. Participants were encouraged to coordinate with their local counterparts and their respective Public Employment Service Offices for more information on the employment programs and services.

The ESGPPA is a convergent program that aims to holistically assist the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program beneficiaries by providing interventions on higher education and employment facilitation.END/Ryan Roberto E. Delos Reyes
