Community Extension is one of the tri-fold functions in Lyceum of the Philippines University Batangas thus plays an important role in the social transformation and became an instrument in changing lives of many Batanguenos by providing sustainable projects. The College of International Tourism and Hospitality Management conducts this livelihood project through their faculty member and students teaching the residents on beads making and selling these bracelets. This study assessed impact and effectiveness of the livelihood project to the Beneficiary of SHL Restoration Village. The participants of the study will be those residents of SHL Restoration Village covering 50 houses. There is a total of 20 beneficiaries who voluntarily serve to be part of livelihood project which is the beads making. The instrument that will be used in this study is a self-made questionnaire to assess the impact of the livelihood project in terms of values gained and economic status and the effectiveness of the project. Based on the result of the study, it was revealed that there was a positive impact on the beneficiaries, CITHM Faculty and students. It is also proven that the livelihood project is effective. Furthermore, it is revealed that the impact of the project is not affected on whether the project is effective. It is suggested that livelihood project and program may be continued since there is a positive impact to the benefactors; however, it is recommendable to fine other beneficiaries and may look for industry partners to have regular customers to ensure sustainability of the project.
