Families in Antique blessed with livelihood projects

Around 62 families in the province of Antique are taking the first step towards a better life after they participated the Home-based Livelihood Support program of World Vision, a global child-focused organization.

In partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), the families received livelihood workshop including Food Processing, Manicure Training, Massage Training, and Dressmaking.

World Vision also oriented them about Financial Literacy to remind them about the importance of budgeting and savings.

After the training and orientation, the families received livelihood start up kits to support the beginning of their business.

“My husband recently met an accident that left him disabled. I was worried about our family’s income because he could no longer go to work. Thankfully, this project arrived right on time to support us get back on our feet,” shares Josephine, a 31-year-old mother and recipient of World Vision’s Home-based Livelihood Support under food processing.

Jesusa, one of the participants, also shared that she is excited to start her new dressmaking business.

World Vision implemented the project to support vulnerable families during this time of the pandemic.
