Said activity is in line with providing relevant information as regard to program implementation.

Program recipients were oriented on their roles and responsibilities. The attendance and performance as TUPAD workers were discussed thoroughly to emphasize on the importance of their accomplishments and as to how their involvement contribute to the development of their community.

Labor and Employment Officer, Leila R. Legayo, and EPWW Division’s Acting Chief Aurora E. Halcon, headed the series of orientations in Caloocan, Navotas, Malabon, Parañaque, Manila, Quezon City, and Pateros. 

Pateros local chief executive, Mayor Miguel Ponce, graced the occasion during the orientation at his locality. Mayor Ponce expressed his gratitude to the Department for extending the program to his municipality.

The orientation also highlighted the new facility in providing the salary of the beneficiaries through the money remittance scheme under the Palawan Express. One beneficiary said “mas maganda po yung bagong sistema [remittance scheme] kasi mas madali po ito para sa amin. Another pariticipant mentioned “makakatulong po ‘to ng malaki sa amin, lalo na po sa araw-araw naming gastusin.”

A mother of three also mentioned her plans on the salary she is about to received. “Gagamitin ko pong pangpuhunan; magtatayo po ako ng maliit na tindahan para pang-tawid sa gastos namin.”

The activity is part of the social preparation of the beneficiaries to provide relevant information about the program and ensure its proper implementation. 

TUPAD is one of the bridging programs of the Department that aims to alleviate the conditions of the marginalized sector and harness their potential for the community development.
