DPWH Employs Women

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

The on-going Samar Road Rehabilitation Project under the United States Millenium Challenge Corporation (MCC) Grant Secondary National Roads Development Program has provided equal employment opportunities for women to increase their productivity in line with Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) poverty reduction program and women empowerment advocacy. Women local residents on the basis of proximity to project areas are tapped to direct vehicular traffic along the on-going 222 kilometer Samar Road Rehabilitation Project. DPWH was also a recipient of citation from the Philippine Commission on Women as one among the most gender-responsive agencies in the Philippine bureaucracy.
