BOAC- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MIMAROPA held series of orientation on Data Privacy Act (DPA) as part of the mandatory Listahanan data sharing agreements to local government units (LGUs) in Marinduque.

Listahanan is a government mechanism that identifies who and where the poor are nationwide, where the result of the 2015 nationwide household assessment is available and accessible to social protection stakeholders.

“With the passage of the data privacy act, DSWD established a systematic way of sharing data to safeguard personal and sensitive personal information of households in the Listahanan list,” said Regional Coordinator Ernie H. Jarabejo.

RA 10173 or Data Privacy Act of 2012 protects individual personal information stored in the information and communications systems of government and private sectors. It aims to protect the fundamental human right to privacy while ensuring a free flow of information to promote innovation and growth.

For requests covering personal information e.g. list of names and addresses of Listahanan identified poor, the Memorandum of Agreement between the stakeholder and the DSWD is required, added Jarabejo.

However, for the statistical data request, a Letter to the DSWD enumerating the data needed and its purpose is required.

Also in this act, stakeholders requesting access to the list of poor are required to designate Data Protection Officer who shall plan, implement, and evaluate policies for data privacy and security, Jarabejo concluded.

The DPA orientations were attended by office heads of the Marinduque Provincial Government and Municipal Government of Buenavista.

To date, the local government of Boac has successfully complied with all requirements in the Listahanan data sharing among the six municipalities in Marinduque.

SLP, EEI Corporation nagsagawa ng Local Recruitment Activity sa Oriental Mindoro

ORIENTAL MINDORO – Kamakailan lamang, ang Sustainable Livelihood Program ay nagsagawa ng Local Recruitment Activity sa Calapan, Pinamalayan, at Mansalay, Oriental Mindoro nitong ika-29 hanggang ika-31 ng Mayo taong 2018.

Sa pakikipag-ugnayan ni Ginang Marites Pones, Private Sector Partnerships Officer ng rehiyon ng MiMaRoPa, ang kumpanyang EEI Corporation ay bumaba sa mga nasabing munisipyo upang magsagawa ng on-the-spot hiring sa mga aplikante. Ilan sa mga trabahong inalok ng kumpanya ay nasa linya ng konstruksyon tulad ng Masonry, Carpentry, at Tile Setting.

Apatnapu’t walong aplikante sa kabuuan ang natanggap at agad na pinag-asikaso ng mga kinakailangang dokumento upang makumpleto ang proseso. Sila ay nakatakdang ipadala sa Maynila at makatatanggap ng minimum wage na Php 512.00 kada araw, Overtime Pay, at benepisyo mula sa SSS, PhilHealth, Pag-IBIG, at iba pa.

“Natutuwa ako kasi marami na akong experience sa pagma-mason at magagamit ko ito sa trabaho. Pagkatapos nito, pupunta na ako ngayon sa SSS para asikasuhin ‘yung mga requirements ko,” sambit ni Rolando Molina, kauna-unahang aplikante na natanggap sa Masonry.

Katutubong Mangyan ng Bongabong 

Isa sa mga prayoridad ng EEI Corporation na mabigyan ng trabaho ay ang mga miyembro ng Indigenous Peoples sa Pilipinas. Sa katunayan, dalawa sa tatlong katutubong Mangyan na dumalo sa aktibidad ang natanggap upang sumailalim sa pagsasanay.

Sina Mawin Daway, Aytag Yagam-ay, at Altan Angguman ay mga katutubong Mangyan na naninirahan sa Bongabong, Oriental Mindoro. Sila ay magkaka-baryo na ang pangunahing hanapbuhay ay pagtatanim ng saging at kamote sa kabundukan. “Nahihirapan kami sa salapi. Kulang ang kinikita namin,” tugon ni Mawin nang tanungin kung ano ang nag-udyok sa kanya na pumunta sa recruitment. Kwento ni Mawin ay kumikita lamang siya ng limandaan kada buwan at kung minsan pa nga ay dalawampung piso lamang kung natutuyo ang mga saging dahil sa init ng panahon.

Si Aytag naman, 25 anyos, ay nagbaka-sakali lamang na matanggap upang mapagamot ang kanyang ina. “Gusto ko lang po na mapagamot si nanay kasi may TB (tuberculosis) siya,” sambit ni Aytag.

“Kung makakapag-aral, pangarap ko po sana sa buhay ay matulungan ang aking tatlong kapatid. Nagtatanim din sila tapos nahihirapan,” ani Angguman, 22 anyos, nang tanungin kung ano ang pangarap nito sa buhay.

Si Mawin at Angguman ay natanggap upang sumailalim sa dalawampu’t anim na araw na pagsasanay bago sumabak sa trabaho. Hindi man pinalad na makuha dahil sa kapansanan sa paglalakad, si Aytag ay pursigido pa din na makahanap ng trabaho kaya naman mag-iikot pa siya sa munisipyo upang humanap ng oportunidad.

Katuwang na Kawani

Kinikilala ng Public Employment Service Office (PESO) ng Mansalay, Oriental Mindoro ang kahalagahan ng pagdaraos ng mga serbisyong pag-eempleyo. “Sa halip na lumuwas para mag-apply sa Maynila, lumalapit na ang employer at nalalaman agad ang mga problemang maaaring harapin ng mga aplikante kaya mas madali na ang proseso,” sambit ni Ginoong Lowell Anastacio, PESO Manager ng Mansalay.

Ang EEI corporation ay isa sa mga kilala at nangungunang kumpanya sa linya ng konstruksyon sa Pilipinas. Sila ay matatagpuan sa 12 Manggahan, Bagumbayan, Lungsod Quezon, 1110 Kalakhang Maynila.
