A total of 844 Day Care Parents in the towns of upper and lower Mariveles received orientation on the TUPAD and EduChild Programs yesterday, April 15.
The event was held in Barangay Alasasin and Barangay Maligaya and was led by Mayor AJ Concepcion, together with 3rd District of Bataan Representative Gila Garcia, Bataan Governor Joet Garcia, Vice Governor Cris Garcia, Pusong Pinoy Partylist Representative Jett Nisay, and members of the Sangguniang Bayan and Sangguniang Panlalawigan.
The Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program is a government initiative that aims to provide emergency employment and livelihood opportunities to those who are in dire need.

“We are grateful for the support of our partners in the government, who are always ready to help us achieve our goals. These programs will greatly benefit our Day Care Parents, who are among the most vulnerable sectors in our community,” Mayor Concepcion said.
Representative Garcia, for her part, expressed her full support for the initiatives and vowed to continue working closely with the local government to provide more assistance to the people of Mariveles.
Meanwhile, Governor Joet and Vice Governor Cris commended the local officials for their efforts in promoting the welfare of the people, particularly those who are in need.
