Among the key strategies of the government to reduce and further prevent the incidence of child labor is to ensure decent and productive work for parents of working children and provide basic social protection for their families. It is within this context that the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) initiated the Kabuhayan Para sa Magulang ng Batang Manggagawa (KASAMA) Project. Since 2008, KASAMA has been implemented as one of the regular projects under the DOLE Integrated Livelihood and Emergency Employment Program (DILEEP), which is aimed at the formation or enhancement of livelihood undertaking of informal sector workers toward the creation of sustainable or viable businesses that will provide decent income for their families.
