Considering parents as the primary responsible for the scholars’ development, Lihuk Panaghiusa Inc. tapped the parents’ potential and enhanced their skills in promoting effective parenting. Lihuk Panaghiusa envisioned for an empowered society by promoting formal education to younger generation and equipping the parents with necessary skills and knowledge through social awareness seminars. Consequently, the organization requires the parents or guardian of the scholars to attend the weekly prayer meeting and social awareness activities facilitated for them.
The organization also linked with various government agencies to apply for possible grant which can help our scholars’ parents in augmenting their income. As of the present, Lihuk Panaghiusa is a conduit of Department of Social Welfare and Development for their Self Employment Assistance-Kaunlaran (SEA-K) Program that lend money for 40 parents so they can start their own business.
We are also granted by the Department of Labor and Employment an amount of P150,000.00 that we used to purchase sewing machines (6 manual operated and 2 high speed machines) that provides livelihood to 25 scholars’ parents. Lastly, we just partnered with government-based women association the KALIPI to sell rice at lower cost to our beneficiaries. The KALIPI provided us 25 sacks of 50 kilos per sack to sell to our beneficiary families and the proceeds of this will be used again to buy cheaper rice so we can offer rice to our beneficiaries at lower cost.
