NPC's Livestock Dispersal Program
The program aims to improve the social and economic welfare of the communities particularly the indigents by providing additional source of income for the household. Through the program, exploiting of natural resources within the reservation was minimized and many communities were participating on the program to sustain their basic needs.
The programs' concept provides for payback scheme wherein qualified beneficiaries are required to return two (2) female off-springs (upon successful farrowing) as part of the agreement with NPC through a contract. The off-springs will then be dispersed to other qualified recipients inside the reservation and will likewise undergo the same payback process.
From the total beneficiaries of the program this 1st quarter 2018, 48 beneficiaries or 60% are women reinforcing NPC's commitment to the Gender and Development Program (GAD) of the national government. In addtion to this, 3 Indigenous People from the Agta-Tabangnon tribe were included in the program in support for the livelihood development of the IP's inside the reservation as embodied in the Ancestral Domain Sustainable Development and Protection Plan (ADSDPP).
