Cash-for-work program to benefit 500 unemployed KSU graduates

Tabuk City, Kalinga - Graduates of Kalinga State University who are still unemployed are set to benefit from a cash-for-work program by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).


This initiative aims to support local graduates while they are seeking stable employment. It will also provide them with work experience before entering their desired jobs, according to its program coordinator, Gian Carlo De Guzman.


The program targets 500 graduates of KSU who completed their degrees from 2022 to 2024.

The selected beneficiaries are scheduled to work for 90 days and will be paid a wage of P430 per day. They will be deployed in various national government agencies and local government units across the province.


Orientation for the targeted beneficiaries is set for Thursday, April 4, 2024, at KSU.


Funded through the initiative of Sen. Imee Marcos, the cash-for-work aid is being implemented under DSWD’s Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services, or the KALAHI-CIDSS program.
