ORMOC CITY, Leyte — Undaunted with the prospect of holding no Cabinet post designation under the incoming administration of President-elect Rodrigo Duterte, Leni Robredo will still work on her advocacies.

A Robredo spokesperson, Georgina Hernandez, declared that Vice President-elect Robredo would engage the participation of the private sector to fulfill her campaign promises.

Hernandez cited as an example the post-Yolanda rehabilitation program of the Lopez Group of Companies which will conclude this week. The program built 150 schoolhouses in 11 provinces and produced over 1,000 scholars in short-term construction courses.

Robredo and her team were in this city Friday to inaugurate new school buildings.

This early, Hernandez said that many private sector organizations had signified their willingness to support Robredo’s anti-poverty programs. The private sector could contribute more and would have a ripple effect of support from other groups, she said.

“We will improve and enhance the design of the projects to get the best results. So with or without a Cabinet position, the advocacies of Vice President-elect Leni Robredo on poverty alleviation will go on),” Hernandez said.
