CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – The Pampanga Provincial Employment and Services Office (PESO) awarded a total amount of P 3,146,400 or P4,560 each to 690 (SPES) beneficiaries from the different towns and cities.

SPES beneficiaries were tasked to do administrative and clerical work in their respective schools to complete a total of 160 hours working period.

Erika Shayne Bondoc, a third year college student of Don Honorio Ventura Technological State University (DHVTSU) expressed her gratitude to Governor Lilia “Nanay” Pineda for the SPES program.

The provincial government is mandated to provide assistance to every Kapampangan youth who wants to purse their college education. –Ma. Reina Len Luna/PIO
