DOLE Kalinga to get land title
TABUK CITY, Kalinga-The Provincial Government of Kalinga has recently granted the Department of Labor (DOLE) Kalinga a land area of 1634 square meters at the government reserved area.

DOLE Kalinga Chief Dr. Avelina Manganip said this latest development is a good news for the agency after exerting all efforts to gain said land title.

"We thank Governor Jocel Baac for recently granting our request for a special hearing to discuss the land titling process of the lot for our agency to be able to improve and develop the land for the agency's purposes," she said.

Manganip relates that as a result of the hearing, it was agreed that the provincial government and concerned agencies will survey the donated lot including those donated to other government line agencies to legislate the subdivision and granting of the land titles to the concerned agencies.

According to Manganip, having the donated land titled to DOLE Kalinga would facilitate the agency's request for funding support to put up its own building and other needed development to eventually make better the agency's service in the province.

Currently, the agency she said is renting a building along the provincial road at P9,000.00 a month. The location she said is very accessible for the clients however, the agency she relates has many limitations in its services since it could not introduce innovations and physical improvements to the facility to cater to the particular needs of all its clientele.

With a lot to set up an office, the agency she said could save the monthly rentals to put up its own building which she said would be designed to accommodate and provide the various services of DOLE including its attached agencies such as the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) and Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).

The plan she disclosed is to establish a two-storey office building and a multipurpose function hall conducive to effectively and efficiently provide the agency's services.

"The building will be designed as a one-stop establishment to suit the provision of the various DOLE services with facilities responsive to our client needs," she said.

The POEA and OWWA she said would also be provided spaces so that the people would be able to access their services right in the province.

With a multi-function hall, DOLE she said would also be able to establish a centralized activity for its various public services such as recruitment activities including jobs fairs, livelihood trainings, values orientation, meetings and other programs without renting.

"We hope that under this administration, DOLE would be able establish its own provincial office which is more responsive to the needs of its labor force," she said.
