Marginal Fisherfolks, now National Awardees for Best Livelihood Project
The Kahugpungan Sa Mga Masilakong Mananagat or KASAMMA of Sagay, Camiguin was hailed as the Best DOLE-Assisted Livelihood Project under the Group Category for 2018. Their Tingco-Tingco Boat and Net Fishing or Deep Sea Fishing Project bested other regional candidates across the country, on the night of May 11, 2018 at the Heritage Hotel, Manila.
Delighted and surprised, Mr. Fernando Ocaba, Chairman of KASAMMA, received the plaque of award on behalf of their organization, along with the officials from the DOLE Regional Office 10. As he received the award, a sense of accomplishment and humility, at the same time, exuded from the man. “Di ko akalain na makukuha kami as National Winner. Ang gusto lang namin ay maiangat ang mga miyembro ng organisasyon namin sa kahirapan. Pero wala kaming intensyon na makapunta sa taas at magka-award pa”, said Mr. Ocaba.
