The “Libertad Fisherfolks SKA” is a 20-member association organized through the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s Sustainable Livelihood Program under the Grassroots Participatory Budget Process (SLP-GPBP). The government program aims to improve the socio-economic mobility of poor households by letting them undergo workshops and skills trainings in order to determine the most suitable market-driven and resource-based livelihoods to engage in. In Lanao de Norte, there are 27 associations under SLP-GPBP benefiting from the Program. ###smu
