Tabuk City, Kalinga – A total of 631 recipients of the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) in Kalinga Province started their 10-day work on Monday, April 18, 2022.
Before the beneficiaries were endorsed to their respective Municipal Public Employment Service Office (PESO) Managers, they have undergone orientation through the Department of Labor and Employment – Cordillera and Provincial Human Resource Management Officer Grace M. Kidang – Flores at Kalinga Astrodome.
The program was made possible through the initiative of Governor Ferdinand Tubban who sourced out funds from the Kalinga Partylist and Senator Joel Villanueva to assist those who were heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and other forms of calamities.
According to Flores, the TUPAD recipients will be working to accomplish community projects or render office works from 8AM to 12NN from Mondays to Saturdays for 10 days.
The usual 8-hour work was shortened to four to minimize the risk of exposure from COVID-19.
Governor Tubban and Flores reminded the beneficiaries to take advantage of the opportunity to earn even for a short period for their family, stressing that the provincial government would always support programs and projects generating employment and job opportunities for the people of Kalinga.
