Leni off to provinces to inspect projects

Vice President Leni Robredo is off to Laguna and Quezon to inspect her office’s livelihood and training programs and community learning hubs.


Robredo said she will also go to Bicol to assess the ongoing housing projects for residents displaced by last year’s consecutive typhoons.

“After the pandemic, we expanded our livelihood and training program. We are visiting – or helping because we cannot visit everyone – groups to capacitate them so they can earn,” she said over dzXL.

These programs are in line with Robredo’s recent visit to Sta. Maria, San Jose del Monte City and Meycauayan City in Bulacan to meet beneficiaries of her office’s livelihood programs.

Many of these beneficiaries include the same groups she tapped to produce personal protective equipment during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Vice President had also visited Guinobatan, Albay where she helped in the construction of houses for typhoon victims.

In Lupi, Camarines Sur, where she met victims of the landslide, the OVP has “more or less 10” houses waiting for roof installation, she said.

Robredo noted her office is already in the post-typhoon rehabilitation phase of its programs.
