THE local government of Antipolo City turned over Negkarts or Negosyo sa Kariton to help ordinary citizens and the needy improve their living conditions.

Mayor Andres “Andeng” Ynares recently visited a NegoKart beneficiary, Mark Anthony Palmario, in his home at Zone 10 in Bgy. San Roque.

Tatay Mark sells fruits on his cart but his earnings are not enough to provide for his six kids. And the fruits he sells are seasonal, which means his earnings are not yearround.

“Bukod pa sa pagkain ay kailanganin din niyang problemahin ang pambili ng gatas at diaper para sa kanyang mga anak. Laking gulat po niya nang personal nating inihatid sa kanilang tahanan ang kanyang bagong NegoKart,” said Mayora Andeng.

The city government of Antipolo City is implementing the project, in coordination with the Department of Labor and Employment.

“Hindi lang basta NegoKart, may kasama pa po itong mga gamit pangluto tulad ng kawali, sandok, super kalan, gasulito, sticks, mantika, tongs, siomai/fishball sticks at plates, mga paninda tulad ng hotdogs, cheesedogs, french fries, fishballs, squid balls, kikiam, kwek-kwek (itlog ng pugo), gayundin ang ingredients para makagawa ng sauce tulad ng toyo, suka, corn starch, brown sugar at chili sauce,” said Mayora Andeng.

“Kumpletos recados na ang mga kailangan ni Tatay upang mapalago pa niya ang kaniyang pangunahing pinagkakakitaan. Sipag at tiyaga na lang ang kailangan at mai-aahon din niya sa kahirapan ang kaniyang pamilya,” the mayor added.

DOLE Bureau of Workers with Special Concerns Dir. Ma. Karina Trayvilla said the NegoKart project is being implemented under the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program.

It aims to help provide earnings to the marginalized and vulnerable sectors of the country.

According to hhe DOLE, 92,034 beneficiaries, including Tatay Mark, have received Negokarts from January 2020 to June 2021.

The DOLE distributes the NegoKart through the Antipolo LGU, which knows the truly marginalized sector in the city.
