DSWD to hold “PaskuJuan” in CDO

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY: DSWD-Northern Mindanao is leading a Christmas Bazaar featuring various products from participants of the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) dubbed "PaskuJuan."

PaskoJuan will be held on Nov. 30, from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Gaston Park, this city.

Handicrafts, bags, accessories, shoes, clothing, furniture, bottled and packed foods and drinks, snacks will be displayed.

Services will also be available in the bazaar like cosmetology, manicure and pedicure, massage, and others.

The SLP aims to develop the standard of living of poor households.

Participants undergo workshops and skills training in order to get the most suitable market-driven and resource-based livelihoods to engage in.

An information management system generates a list of the underprivileged and indigents in the area who will then be given the chance to manage sustainable micro-enterprises and linking them to locally available jobs.

SLP is supported by DTI, TESDA and DOLE.
