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”.

DSWD MiMaRoPa heightens knowledge and skills in Risk Management

Taguig City – Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MiMaRoPa Regional Management and Development Committee (RMDC) attended the Technical Assistance on Risk Management organized by DSWD Central Office, October 12 to 14, 2015, in DSWD SWADCAP Taguig City.

Risk Management, as defined in ISO 31000, is the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks followed by coordinated and economical application of resource to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events or to maximize the realization of opportunities.

“In order to effectively analyze and prevent risks in DSWD MiMaRoPa, everyone should know your respective business processes,” said Imee Manalili, DSWD Organization Development Specialist.

Clear and comprehensive business processes of every unit are significant because these will be the basis of guidelines for risk management.

In relation to this, DSWD MiMaRoPa Regional Director Wilma Naviamos expressed, “Business processes of every unit should be interrelated with each other. It should not stand alone.”

Memorandum Circular (MC) 27 series 2014 or the DSWD Risk Management (RM) Framework requires that Risk Management be applied to all DSWD OBSUs and Field Offices implementing social protection program and services.

“In conducting risk analysis, everyone should be knowledgeable and vigilant of external and internal factors for risk assessment,” said Edwin Calubag, DSWD Organizational Development Specialist.

External Risk Factors are outside organization’s control and influence.  These may include the following: Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Legal, and Environmental (PESTLE) factors.  On the other hand, Internal Risk Factors comprise of: organizational factors; strategic directions; capabilities; internal stakeholders; organization’s culture; adoption of standards; guidelines and models; and contractual relationships.

“When we are talking about Risk Management, we should not just think about what will happen next year, but what will happen in the next ten years and beyond,” emphasized Manalili.

At the end of the training, participants gained familiarity and dexterity on how to create comprehensive business processes and how to generate proactive rather than reactive management of risks that may hinder the organization in achieving goals and objectives. ###

DSWD MiMaRoPa conducts Organizational Development and Management Training in Banton Romblon

BANTON ROMBLON- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MiMaRoPa together with the Municipality of Banton conducted the training on Organizational Development and Management (ODM) last September 29 to October 2, 2015.

The training gathered 56 participants composed of operation and maintenance groups, barangay officials on infrastructure, and the ACT members of Banton.

Aimed to strengthen and enhance the organizational development and management practices in the community, the participants were expected to understand the organizational development framework, encourage the other community members to participate in the planning process of sustaining their sub-projects, and build their self-trust, cooperation, and communication for the successful achievement of their organization’s goals.

The three-day training covered topics including the overview of ODM, Sustainability Evaluation Tools (SET) assessment, leadership and management, organization registration and accreditation, and operation and maintenance of the sub-projects.

Responding positively to the training through their lively participation, the participants committed to serve their communities by sustaining their sub-projects.

“To ensure the sustainability and to enjoy the longer benefits brought by the sub-projects, it is necessary to hone and strengthen the capacity/capability of the operation and maintenance groups and institutionalize the regular conduct of sustainability evaluation to the completed sub-projects,” said one of the resource speakers.

These operation and maintenance groups are expected to evolve into a full functioning organization with vision, mission, by-laws and constitution at least on the completion of a CEAC cycle.

Most of the sub-projects in Banton are level-one water systems and as part of the mandate, all Kalahi-CIDSS projects should be maintained and operated by registered and accredited operation and maintenance groups. ###
