Masbate Rep. Wilton Kho has spearheaded the distribution of livelihood packages to 37 families in Municipality of Cawayan

The project came into fruition through the support of LGU Cawayan headed by Mayor Edgar Condor and the Department of Labor and Employment through the provincial director Ma. Ella Verano,

“This is our intervention to address the child labor issue that is emanating in our country. In coordination with DOLE, the team(s) were able to provide kabuhayan showcase to those families who have working children,” the lawmaker’s office said.

“It’s a jam-packed opportunity since these kabuhayan packages that were given include dressmaking, baking, farming, fishing, etc. Hopefully, it will help the families establish their source of income and eventually finance their child’s education in the future,” it added.

Meanwhile, the office of Rep. Kho has reiterated its commitment to provide more services to the benefit of the children.

“Meanwhile, we will continue to provide help and assistance through our scholarship program so no more children are obliged to work for their family while they are being provided with quality education,” he said.
