Alay Kapwa para sa Kabuhayan

Demonstrating its commitment to reducing poverty and hunger in the Philippines, Caritas Philippines launched the “Food Security & Livelihoods – Alay para sa Kabuhayan” program (2021-2023). This three-year initiative aims to empower local diocesan Caritas (DSACs) through economic and technical support.

Key Program Components:

  • Capacity Building: DSACs receive training in technology, information, enterprise development, sustainable agriculture, and organic farming.
  • Livelihood Assistance: The program scales up agricultural production through agro-enterprise clusters, community social enterprises, and increased farmer income.
  • Partnership and Marketing Hubs: Caritas Philippines strengthens partnerships with government agencies and development partners to support DSAC product marketing.

Entrepreneurial activities like community and sectoral organizing further empower producer groups and contribute to program success.
