QC holds orientation for over 800 TUPAD participants
More than 800 residents from District 4 of Quezon City recently attended an orientation program for the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program. The TUPAD program is an initiative under the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) that aims to provide emergency employment to people who have lost their means of livelihood.
The orientation program was organized in partnership with the office of 4th District Rep. Marvin Rillo and local councilors Imee Rillo, Raquel Malañgen, and Nanette Castelo Daza. The local officials expressed their commitment to supporting the TUPAD program and helping residents in need.
During the orientation, attendees were briefed on the program's guidelines and requirements. The TUPAD program provides beneficiaries with temporary employment for a period of 10 to 30 days, with a daily wage of Php 537. The program targets informal sector workers, marginalized workers, and self-employed individuals who have lost their source of income due to natural disasters or other calamities.
The orientation program was an opportunity for residents to learn about the program and register as beneficiaries. The local officials emphasized the importance of the TUPAD program in providing emergency assistance to disadvantaged workers and urged residents to take advantage of the program.
The TUPAD program is just one of the initiatives that the local government is implementing to address the needs of the community.
