NPC CESO gives livelihood assistance to Indigenous community in Buhi, Camarines Sur

The National Power Corporation’s Career Executive Service Officers earlier this week has extended monetary livelihood assistance to the indigenous people (IP) within the Buhi-Barit Watershed Reservation in Buhi, Camarines Sur.

NPC CESO Mr. Emmanuel A. Umali, Ms. Bernadette T. Rivero, and Atty. Patrick D. Mabbagu have personally handed the assistance to IP representatives Vilma Coronel and Nimfa Alina. The assistance will be used as capital investment to their existing livelihood programs such as coco jam production for San Ramon Agta-Tabangon tribe and basket weaving and pili oil production for the San Vicente Agta-Tabangon tribe.

The grant of the assistance is consistent with the Career Executive Service Board’s vision and thrust in pursuing national development goals with government leaders and the public.

NPC’s Buhi Barit Watershed Area Team also assisted the grant and will continue to help the IP communities with their livelihood programs.
