Community livelihood programs are an integral part of economic growth and economic stability, particularly for low capital businesses and micro enterprises who may not have the necessary resources to pursue their own interests. Not only does it provide them with life-sustaining money, but it also gives them a platform to build upon their current level of education and progress further.

When these individuals have more access to resources that can help kickstart their envisioned careers, the whole local economy can benefit as a result. It is therefore essential to make sure these kind of community livelihood programs are well supported and strongly catered towards low-income households.

If you are passionate about baking or interested in starting your own baking business, then the Bake and Earn Program is perfect! This program allows target participants to learn about different business ideas, how to create their businesses, baking skills training, and how to generate income creatively. 

We held two events this year. The first event was on October 29th from 10 am-12 pm at the HICAPS Main Office in Santa Rosa City, Laguna. Finally, the second event was held on November 26th from 10 am-12 pm at the Clubhouse of Villa Las Casas.
