Highlighting the activity was the ceremonial signing of pledge of commitment by leaders of national government agencies and tribal leaders of the indigenous people. RD Agravante in his message said, “In line with President Duterte’s Whole-Of-Nation-Approach in delivering services to the grass root level, the Department of Labor and Employment will continue to extend our livelihood and employment programs to all constituents in this province. Many have already improved their financial status, and many will still be served.”, Agravante said. He ended his message by informing the participants of the groups in the province who already have received grants from DOLE’s Livelihood Program, and how these groups are now doing well as regards marketing of their products and services. (By Eduardo P.
