INTRODUCTION
The perennial and ever-nagging problem of the impoverished communities under the Parish of St. John Mary Vianney has caused tremendous anxieties and vexation among the people gathered in these areas, giving rise to moral disintegration of the physiological, psychological, social and spiritual dimensions.

The Camillian Sisters developed a program focused on the Livelihood Training that would enhance the welfare and economic status of our poor brothers and sisters and to help them uplift their spiritual life. Simple well viable technologies shall be taught to a participant in a mode they could easily grasp and comprehend. This project will play a vital role in the augmentation of their family income. The training shall further develop and enhance their positive outlook in life and instill in them the virtues of cooperation, self-reliance, leadership and teamwork.

While the livelihood program is geared towards emancipation from indigency, the participants on the project will be given seminars on interpersonal work relationships, values formation, and ethics for them to attain a level of growth in various aspects of life. To this end, Livelihood Training processes shall be integrated with character formation since part of Livelihood is awareness of proper conduct and morals needed to be fruitful and exemplary citizens of the community not withstanding the crucial bondage of poverty.
