Belmonte speaks at Impact Hub’s Women NOW
Mayor Joy Belmonte was the closing keynote speaker at “Impact Hub’s Women NOW Closing Panel: The Way Forward” earlier today.
She highlighted the city government’s efforts in economically empowering vulnerable groups such as small business owners, solo parents, and victims of gender-based violence.
One of these programs is the Tindahan ni Ate Joy that aims to provide sari-sari stores to solo parents to sustain the needs of their children.
Another city program is the QC Essentials, spearheaded by QC Small Business and Cooperatives Development Promotions Office. This aims to provide unemployed solo parents with training and starter kits to produce alcologne as a source of livelihood during the pandemic.
Mayor Joy reiterates that empowering women economically and financially helps to make society a better place. This has been one of her main agenda as the leader of the city.
