MCT Staff Re-Oriented on the Process of Community Driven Development


TAGAYTAY CITY, Cavite- The Municipal Coordinating Team (MCT), the local counterpart of the field staff of the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s program- Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan – Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi – CIDSS) were re-oriented on the first two stages of the community driven development process of the program.

The two day seminar was attended by 200 participants (47 from Romblon Cluster; 59 from Mindoro, Marinduque, Conception and Banton (MiMaCon) Cluster; and 94 from Palawan Cluster) across MiMaRoPa. Two classes divided into sessions were simultaneously held in Bali Village Hotel (MiMaCon) cluster) and Tagaytay Haven Hotel (Romblon Cluster) in Tagaytay City in March 3 and 4, 2016 while the seminar in Palawan cluster was held at Sunlight Guest Hotel on March 7 to 8, 2016.

The Municipal Coordinating Teams were composed of Municipal Area Coordinator (MAC), Municipal Engineer/ Municipal Technical Facilitator (ME/MTF), Municipal Community Empowerment Facilitator (MCEF), and Municipal Accountant (MA).

The program was started by the opening message from the Deputy Regional Program Manager of Kalahi CIDSS National Community Driven Development Program (NCDDP) Irenea Liza Roque. Miss Roque reminded the MCTs that they should work hand-in hand with the Area Coordinating Teams in their respective areas. In addition, she acknowledged the accomplishments of the teams and told them about their roles in empowering the people in the communities of MiMaRoPa.

“Let the people participate, let the people be part in the decision making in the government” Miss Roque reminded the participants.

The first day has focused on the introduction of Kalahi CIDSS process to the MCT. The Community Development Officers and the Regional Community Development Specialists served as the resource persons in the introduction of the community driven development (CDD) approach and the community empowerment activity cycle (CEAC) process to the MCTs.

The Community Infrastructure Officers, the Regional Community Infrastructure Specialists, and the Monitoring and Evaluation Officers has also discussed to the MCTs the technical aspects of the program such as the utilization of the Technical Assistance Fund (TAF), the conduct of the site validation for the sub-project, and the overview of Monitoring and Evaluation of Kalahi CIDSS- specifically geotagging of sub-projects, Project Information Management System, and the Grievance Redress System (GRS).

On the second day, the discussion about the CEAC process continued. In the afternoon, the MCTs from the Romblon Cluster were given a chance to raise their issues and concerns to the Regional Program Manager of Kalahi – CIDSS and the Assistant Regional Director for Operations of DSWD MiMaRoPa Floreceli G. Gunio regarding the implementation of Kalahi – CIDSS in their area. Some of the major issues that arise in the meeting were the accomplishments of the backlogs of the municipalities before their transition into the next cycle.

 

Being the counterpart of the LGU to Kalahi CIDSS, seminars for the MCTs can serve as a strategic instrument in the institutionalization of the CDD process in the governance strategy of the MCTs respective LGUs.

This seminar will be followed by the next re-orientation of the MCTs on the third and fourth stages of CEAC after the second quarter of this year.  (Sharmaine Catapang) ###

Urduja of Seaweeds Production in Taytay Palawan


Seaweeds

Gaudiosa M. Alto, president of Bagong Pag-asa Association, is known as Urduja of Seaweeds Production

Urduja is a legendary Filipino heroine recognized for her strong leadership and passion for serving the people. Deviating from stereotype about woman being weak and passive, Urduja showed that she is a ruler who can mobilize and defend her people. She is a true legendary warrior.

In the midst of sea paradise in Taytay Palawan, there is also a strong, independent and dedicated woman recognized as Urduja of Seaweeds Farming.

Gaudiosa M. Alto, 63, is the president of Bagong Pag-Asa Association (BPA), an organization guided by Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) IV- MiMaRoPa Sustainable Livelihood Program.

During the field visit, as the cold breeze touched her skin and splash of water lingered in her feet, Gaudiosa started to tell her story. Her stories pierced the heart and soul of the listeners. She looked straight into our eyes and sincerely told every chapter of the book of her life: every journey she had encountered, every failure she had tasted and every triumph she had reached.

As she gazed in the sky painted with mixture of  gray and tangerine triggering a feeling of longing, she reminisced her experiences before the SLP Seaweeds Production.

Life dark as a coal

Life before the SLP seaweeds production was full of hardship and uncertainty.

“Mahirap po ang buhay namin dati bago ‘yang SLP, para pong laging may pangamba,” recalled Gaudiosa.

Coal mining was her primary source of income.  As a coal miner, Gaudiosa’s life was full of darkness and fear.  It was always like a vacuum: sufocated with emptiness and no direction.

Her life was always at risk.

“Dati po kaming nag-uuling. Para kami ay maka-survive (pinasok na namin ang pag-uuling). Ay mahirap mag-uling! Buhay ang nakataya dyan,” said Gaudiosa while trying to control the crystal clear tears from falling in her eyes.

Aside from being illegal, coal mining posed risks in her health and her environment.

However difficult life has been, she didn’t lose hope.  Risks of her previous work pushed her to look for greater opportunities.  With the help of Edilberto Y. Felizarte, Pamantulon Taytay Palawan Barangay Chairman, Gaudiosa discovered the opportunities offered by SLP.

“Huminigi si kapitan ng tulong sa SLP kung pwede raw bigyan kami ng hanapbuhay. Ito nga ang binigay, ang pagse-seaweads,” Gaudiosa stated.

Seaweeds: treasure in the heart of sea paradise of Taytay, Palawan

Sustainable Livelihood Program introduced Seaweeds Production in 2013.  This project has been offered by DSWD-SLP to Gaudiosa since the municipality of Taytay provides a sustainable environment for seaweed production because it is strategically located in a relatively typhoon-free area having wide reef areas, extended marine coastlines and wide coastal shelves.

Aiming to improve their knowledge and skills in seaweeds farming, Gaudiosa, together with other partner-beneficiaries, undergone the six (6) day training of SLP provided by the Department of Agriculture Bureaus of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Regional Fisheries Training Center Palawan and DSWD-SLP.

This six days of training changed their lives forever.

Asked about her life transformation, Gaudiosa answered genuinely. Her voice rattled and became more sincere.  Her eyes widened as if letting you glimpse into her soul.

“Napakasaya ko po. Malaking tulong talaga pag-seaweeds sa amin. Laking pagbabago po talaga,” said Gaudiosa while posing her sweetest and sincerest smile.

She was able to breakaway from dragging and hazardous livelihood. No more sleepless nights worrying what will happen to them during their work. No more despair on things they can’t give and promise to their family. No more emptiness, risk and darkness — only light and future full of hope and prosperity.

Godsend Wealth: Benefits of Seaweeds

Treasure in the heart of sea paradise of Taytay Palawan brought illuminating light in the dark life of Gaudiosa.

Every strand of seaweeds is like a rope made of gold, a discovered wealth.  Seaweeds served as the primary source of income, it strengthen the tie of relationship with her family and knitted her closely with the community.

Gaudiosa’s wealth is her family. As bread winner,  she spends all her income for her family, most specially for the education of her grandchildren.

“Dito kami kumukuha ng pagkain at mga gamit na pampaaral sa aming mga anak.”

Seaweeds also transformed the lives of members of her community.

With the help of DSWD-SLP, two major associations were organized: Bagong Pag-asa and Taytay Palawan Seaweed Farmers Federation.

Gaudiosa is the president of Bagong Pag-asa. It is noticeable that all her members are all men and yet, everyone of them has high regard and respect for Gaudiosa. She really shows great leadership in the members of her association. Indeed, she is Urduja of the seaweeds production.

During the  planting and harvesting season, everyone gathers together —  sharing unceasing stories, unwavering hopes and never-ending laughters.

Everlasting Treasure: Sustainability of Seaweeds Production

With the success she has tasted, Gaudiosa don’t want to remain dependent on what SLP and other agencies have given them. She wants a sustainable business. She is dreaming of being in full control of seaweeds production, free from the abuse and cruelty of middle men.

“ Malaki na po ang tulong ng SLP. Pero syempre po hinihiling ko po na kami na talaga mamahala sa seaweeds. Para po hindi na kami umaasa sa mga middle man. Madalas po kasi lugi kami,” emphasized by Gaudiosa.

Seaweeds is in demand in the market all year round thus making it more sustainbale with the technical support from partner agencies in the areas of organizational development and marketing.

Victory of Urduja of Seaweeds Production

Gaudiosa like Urduja has tasted countless battles in her life but she remained standing like a true warrior. In her journey, no matter how many gigantic waves will come and collosal combats she will encounter, she will alsways give a whirl in order to protect and serve her family and her people.

For all the victories she has achieved, she is grateful to her family and seaweeds farming: the true treasure of her life. ###

DSWD MiMaRoPa supports 4th Juvenile Justice and Welfare Consciousness Week


Malate, Manila – In accordance with Presidential Proclamation No. 489, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) through Juvenile Justice and Welfare Committee (JJWC) celebrated the 4th Juvenile Justice and Welfare Consciousness Week’s Kick-Off event, Monday, Oct. 19, at Century Park Hotel Manila.

Ribbon Cutting

Ribbon cutting for the Exhibit of Products and Artworks of RRCY Residents and selected CICL.

Proclamation No. 489 dated October 12, 2012 entitled, “Declaring the Fourth Week of October as the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Consciousness (JJWC) Week” aims to heighten the awareness and counsciousness of Filipino people about the rights of Filipino Children including Children in Conflict with the Law (CICL), responsbility of all stakeholders and all duty bearers in ensuring the protection of Filipino youth and children.

During the Kick-Off event, participants of Regional Rehabilitation Center for Youth (RRCY) also showcased their talents and skills.

RRCY members sang, danced and performed their heart out: offering their presentation to their family and friends, and to the social workers and other stakeholders who helped them reach their zenith potential and achieve lives full of hope.

DSWD Usec. Parisya H. Taradji, together with Atty. Tricia Clare A. Oco, DSWD MiMaRoPa Regional Director Wilma Naviamos, and Police Supt. Sofronio Bumalay, initiated the ribbon cutting for the Exhibit of Products and Artworks of RRCY Residents and selected CICL.

Asked what differentiates 4th JJWC from previous celebrations, Usec. Taradji said, “ 4th JJWC is different because this is the first event which includes the amendment of Republic Act No. 9344 (Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act of 2006), streghthening  the juvenile justice in the Philippines. Also, this celebration is bigger!”

RA 9344 provides that children 15 years of age and under at the time of the commission of the offense are exempt from criminal liability.

Psupt. Bumalay accentuated the Philippine National Police (PNP) Manual on the Management of Cases of Children in Conflict with the Law. “Crafting of the manual is essential because this will serve as guide to various agencies in protecting CICL,” said Psupt. Bumalay.

The theme for the 4th JJWC is “Bata ay gabayan, batas sa Juvenile Justice Bigyan Daan”.
