DOLE Regional Director Atty. Evelyn R. Ramos emphasizes that for this GIP batch, priority is given to dependents of minimum wage earners, to help alleviate the effects of inflation on low-income families in the region.
Minimum wage earners are those receiving P312 to P370 daily rates.
“The DOLE, through the leadership of Secretary Bienvenido E. Laguesma, feels for the parents and breadwinners who are earning minimum wage. Hence, we offer this program to enable their capable children or dependents earn for themselves and augment their family’s income,” said RD Ramos.
“Likewise, we give these young people the opportunity to gain work experience, and open them access to enter government service which may propel their careers soon,” she added.
The DOLE RO1 has allocated the amount of P 7,318,910 for the program. It shall fund the wages and insurance coverage of the interns.
The GIP interns will be deployed to various government agencies across the region. These include local government units (LGUs), regional line agencies, and other provincial/satellite/field offices.
