Livelihood Training on Mazapan Making at Barangay Poctol, San Juan Batangas
Barangay Poctol is quite lucky to be adopted by the Batangas State University and be choosen as recipients of its program and projects. It was July 2017 when Batangas State University sponsored a livelihood program with an aim of supporting 4ps recipients of the barangay along with the parents of the School- Based Feeding Program. Students and faculty members of BatStateU-San Juan trained the participants in preparing mazapan and other delicacies that they can sell to earn an income that can support their living. For the improvement of the program the office of extension in San Juan initiates this monitoring activity.
Based on the monitoring was conducted by the project leader and coordinators, there are ten parents who still participated the livelihood program. Every day, their mazapan is being sold at the school based canteen and other neighboring school. From the 15% of their profit they share it to the school canteen, and this is allotted to the feeding program.
