Dingdong Dantes’ Foundation Connects Pinoys Who Lost Job Due to COVID-19 to Work-From-Home Jobs

Dingdong Dantes’ foundation connects Pinoys to work-from-home jobs

COVID-19 has put many Filipinos in a tight financial position, especially for those who cannot opt to work from home, and have thus lost their jobs as a result. 

This uncertain situation has prompted Dingdong Dantes, former National Youth Commission Head, to connect Filipinos to work-from-home jobs through his foundation, YesPinoy. 


Since 3rd April, the YesPinoy Foundation has been collaborating with Jobstreet Philippines, and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) in the #SanaOL campaign, which helps Filipinos who lost their jobs due to COVID-19.

There are over 2000 work-from-home opportunities available on Jobstreet Philippines, as well as freelance alternatives.

There are also job openings for those without any job experience and graduates with K-12 qualifications.

Fortunately, the jobs available aren’t just for the quarantine period. But those looking for temporary work only until the end of the quarantine period can opt for freelance and part-time positions. Dantes clarified this on his Twitter account, and also launched a Twitter Q&A session on 6th April to answer queries about the campaign. 

No Filipino should be left behind

Due to the spread of COVID-19, the economy is struggling and Filipinos are hurting financially. But thanks to initiatives like YesPinoy’s #SanaOL campaign, we can ensure that no Filipino will be left behind in the fight against COVID-19.
