CSF Boosts Livelihood Program [ Tuesday, 11th of February 2014 | 4 years ago ]

In celebration of the 13th city charter anniversary of San Fernando, one whole day was allotted to give emphasis on the importance and contribution of livelihood in the progress of the city throughout the years. Dubbed as “CSFP Livelihood Day,” different activities such as job fair, trade fair and launching of livelihood programs added energy to the commemoration.

Mayor Edwin Santiago promoted the activity by encouraging the attendees to immerse themselves in livelihood endeavors so as to uplift their lives. In his speech, he also thanked different government agencies concerned and the private sector in helping the city administration to alleviate poverty through programs designed to reach out to the people especially the marginalized.

“It is my responsibility to provide you avenues for growth so that truly, we may attain our vision of a progressive San Fernando,” Santiago said.

The S3TAR program or “Sari-sari store program” was also launched by the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement between the city government represented by the mayor, Vice Mayor Jimmy Lazatin, City Administrator Fernando Limbitco, TESDA’s Provincial Director Benhur Banigued, and representatives from pilot barangays namely: San Jose, Sta. Lucia and Magliman. GAD focal person Ms. Amy Catacutan was very happy because the beneficiaries of this program will also be those who are under the Gender and Development program of the city which she heads. Also, leaders from San Jose boasted of their product from corn skin as a result of the city’s livelihood campaign program.

The job fair was attended by more than 50 companies within and out of the city. Participants flocked at the atrium to join and apply to their prospected companies. CSFP PESO Manager Donny Sayre thanked those who participated in the fair. He told them not to be discouraged even if this fair was their fifth one and for them not to leave stones unturned.

A showcase of products from the different barangays of the city added festivity in front of the city hall. Featuring their very own produce, people trooped to their stalls and bought what pleased them.

This year’s livelihood day is a manifestation of how far the city was able to lift itself from poverty to gradual and progressive success. It is for this reason why the administration of Mayor Edwin Santiago had included in its governance agenda the prioritization of livelihood and economic development to sustain and even raise this movement.
