DOLE Graduation Project – COVID Update Bulletin #3

By Bobby Irven • July 15, 2020 • 1 minute read

In mid-May 2020, Negros Occidental was placed on General Community Quarantine easing the restrictions in movement within the province. Subsequently, the project team geared up to resume field activities while abiding by the safeguards provided by the national government. The first activities post-quarantine in June included a Rapid Diagnostic Assessment to determine the current welfare and status of the livelihoods among pilot participants (prioritizing participants who the Graduation Community Facilitators (GCFs) were unable to reach during the quarantine period) and a Rapid Livelihoods Assessment to identify barriers to current pilot livelihoods and identify new opportunities in the market.
