Decent Work and Economic Growth


DLSU-D strengthens the capacity of micro-small medium enterprises, young entrepreneurs, and skilled workers by instigating various enterprise development projects and livelihood skills development activities in partnership with the members of the Lasallian community and its public-private networks. Multi-stakeholder projects are carried out to propel new ideas, promote product innovation, and stimulate productivity among its marginalized partner communities and organizations.

To further support decent work and economic growth, DLSU-D works in partnership with DILG as CaLaBaRZon Water and Sanitation (WatSan) Hub. The project centers on working with communities and government agencies for the development and implementation of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) programs. Also, DLSU-D partners with DILG, NGOs, and the Province of Cavite for the implementation of G-HUBS (Holistic Understanding through Bridging Solutions for Governance) and SDG localization. Ultimately, these efforts support economic growth and stimulates more opportunities for economic development and decent work.
