Panabo City - After successfully offering livelihood opportunities to more than a thousand of his constituents last year, Davao del Norte Representative Anton F. Lagdameo Jr. will provide another round of livelihood projects this March at selected areas in his district. Around 1,600 non-working mothers and out-of-school youths (OSY) will benefit in the second round of Barangayanihan Livelihood Program to be conducted from March 12,13,14 and 16.

Congressman Lagdameo’s office will work in tandem with the Compassionate Heart In All Times (CHIT) Foundation in conducting trainings such as Hair Cutting, Carpentry, Food Processing, Sewing, Vegetable Gardening, Massage, and Foot Spa technologies. Each participant will receive their respective livelihood kits to enable them to immediately earn. The project is part of Lagdameo’s program of enhancing income generation opportunities for his constituents and therefore, improve the nutritional needs in every family.

Gene-Rose Tecson, chief of staff of the congressman, said that this program will accommodate 400 persons per day, the participants will be equally divided in morning and after sessions. A participant only needs to come early since registration, food, and transportation will be afforded to them.

Training will be done in the ARF Covered Court in Barangay New Pandan, Panabo City on March 12, while March 13-14 schedules will be held in Marscon Covered Court, Barangay Tibal-og in Sto.Tomas. Then it will transfer to the Island Garden City of Samal on the 16th.
