This is an ever growing area of Kadasig, which is developing more and more each year. These programs focus on developing skills to alleviate poverty. It may be in the area of hog raising, goat rearing, raising of chickens for sale, camote, peanut, corn and eggplant growing to mention a few. There are a number of families who are sewing rags for sale whilst there is also bread, cake & cookie making at the centre in Cebu. The latest addition is an eatery in front of the centre which is proving very successful.
There are many ways to assist families to earn an income, to work towards improvement in their life situation. Often an initial financial start, working with those who have knowledge and sharing within the community, is all that is needed to make an enormous difference and change in a family’s life.
The Livelihood Projects (below) are a great start to giving a family a chance to work, earn and grow and make a real effort towards independence.
These items are provided to families involved in the Livelihood and Sponsorship Programs in times of emergency and to assist them on their path to self sufficiency.

In the past we have had people request gift vouchers for birthday presents, Kris Kringle presents, to go under the tree, table settings for each guest or just because, for that person who has everything. How would you use one?
