    VP Leni pushes for more livelihood opportunities, brings Angat Buhay partners to Samar

    Office of the Vice President 15 September 2017

    Vice President Leni Robredo sat down with community leaders and local residents to discuss how to improve their livelihoods during a visit to the municipalities of Hernani and Salcedo in Eastern Samar. In her visit to Canhugas Nature Park, Brgy. 2 Poblacion in Hernani, VP Leni met with fisherfolk, tricycle drivers, and sari-sari store owners to discuss the various problems faced by the community. Lack of sufficient livelihood was the main issue raised, despite the community’s proximity to a possible tourist spot. “Hindi siya puwede madaliin. Gusto natin na bisitahin siya ng turista, pero kailangang i-prepare natin. Malaki ang mabubuksan nitong mga oportunidad para sa inyo kasi mas madaling puntahan,” VP Leni told residents. She also encouraged the community to create a plan that would promote ecotourism in the area. VP Leni stressed the importance of careful planning especially when it involves bringing in livelihood opportunities. “Kasi pag walang masterplan, baka masayang. Pag tayo-tayo lang ang nag-uusap, baka masayang ang ganda. Baka masayang at hindi natin ma-maximize ang kagandahan niya. Tingin ko iyon ang first step,” she said. The same day, VP Leni also visited the members of the Farmers Entrepreneurs Association at a demo farm in Brgy. Naparaan, Salcedo. In their conversation with VP Leni, the farmers identified the lack of financial resources to purchase livestock, poultry, and other farming materials as the biggest obstacle to improving their income. In both dialogues, VP Leni underscored the importance of enhancing incomes of existing livelihood opportunities, as well as the need to create new ones. “Kailangan may sapat na trabaho para sa inyo. Kapag may kulang, kailangan gawan natin ng paraan,” she said. VP Leni was accompanied on her visit by representatives from TripKada and the Management Association of the Philippines, both of which committed to assist in the development of Canhugas Nature Park as a tourist destination. Through Angat Buhay partners Lingap sa Laylayan ng Lipunan and Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc., two Eastern Samar schools also received water filtration systems, and a pledge of two new classrooms for Salcedo National High School, respectively, were also turned over the same day.
