Paraan ng pagpapatupad ng proyekto ng 2 barangay sa Aborlan, gagawing modelo ng iba’t ibang bansa sa Asya

ABORLAN, Palawan- Swerte kung ituring ng mga taga Aborlan ang pagbisita ng mga representante ng bansang Myanmar, Indonesia at East Timor kaninang umaga.

Ang Barangay Sagpangan at Gogognan sa Aborlan kasi ang napili ng Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) sa buong Pilipinas na may matagumpay nang proyekto sa ilalim ng Kapit Bisig Laban Sa Kahirapan, Comprehensive And Integrated Delivery of Social Services o KALAHI CIDSS.

Nais kasing gawing modelo ng mga nabanggit na bansa ang pagpapatupad ng matagumpay na proyekto sa pangunguna ng komunidad at ordinaryong mamamayan.

Gaya na lang ng 3.345 km. Farm to market road sa Barangay Sagpangan at ang hanging bridge sa Barangay Gogognan.

Kung dati ay kailangan pang lumangoy o maglakad ng malayo ang mga mga estudyante at residente ng Brgy. Gogognan para lang makatawid, ngayon naman ay kailangan na lamang nilang lakarin ang 60 metrong tulay. Malaking kaluwagan para sa kanila at sa kanilang pamumuhay.

93% ng residente ng barangay ay pawang katutubong Tagbanua at sila ang nagtulung-tulong para magawa ang tulay. Aminado naman ang mga volunteers ng proyekto na hindi naging madali ang proseso dahil kailangang maging transparent lahat.

Ito ang kanilang ibinahagi sa mga bisita na pag-aaralan naman nila para ituro rin sa mga mamamayan sa kanilang bansa.

Patunay umano ito na malaki ang papel na ginagampanan ng ordinaryong mamamayan. Dahil kahit sila ay maaaring makapagpatupad ng mga proyektong mapapakinabangan ng lahat.###

DSWD awards Palawan province: Gawad Listahanan champion


Representing the Provincial Government of Palawan, Dominic Fresnillo and Helen Bundal receive the award as the 2015 Gawad Listahanan regional champion under provincial category.

PUERTO PRINCESA CITY- The Provincial Government of Palawan (PGOP) won two times in a row as regional champion for the 2015 Gawad Listahanan  search under provincial category while the Province of Romblon is this year’s first runner-up.

The awarding was held in Palawan on December 11, 2015 which was witnessed by partner Local Government Units (LGUs), Civil society Organizations, media and academic institutions.

Regional champion received Php 10,000.00 cash prize while the first runner-up with 7,000.00. Each winner has plaque of appreciation.

Gawad Listahanan is a recognition to all Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) partners specifically to the LGUs who have Memorandum of Agreement on Data Sharing through the Department’s Administrative Order No.2, series of 2009.

Data Sharing aims to establish systematic way of sharing data, as well as information on poor households that will be or can be eligible for various local social protection programs.

“We launched the 2015 Gawad Listahanan to confer awards to our partner stakeholders in promoting the usage of Listahanan database,” said Regional Director Wilma Naviamos for MiMaRoPa region.


Ms. Bellie Faminialan (center)  from Romblon province receives the award as this year’s first runner-up.

The PGOP has made strides in promoting the welfare of senior citizens and has ensured their continued participation in development, thru granting Local Social Pension to indigent citizens province wide within the age bracket of 73-76 years old in the amount of P250.00 per month.

This also promotes the complementation and convergence of all social protection stakeholders on the identified poor to effectively address the different aspects of poverty, said Naviamos.

Nevertheless, the province of Romblon is implementing the HEART program which focuses on Health, Education, Agriculture, Revenues, Resource Generation, Tourism and Transparency with the aid of Listahanan data to combat the aging and multiplying effects of poverty in the province.

Gawad Listahanan was first celebrated in 2014 in Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro. Winners are judged on the compliance to the Data Sharing Agreement; integration of Listahanan data in local advocacy activities; and innovative practice where the data of poor households are used as basis in crafting local development plans.

Moreover, Provincial Government of Palawan is one of the finalists at the national level. Winners will be named on January 2016 during the DSWD anniversary annual celebration.

Listahanan, which first started in 2009, a mechanism of mapping out poor and non-poor households in the Philippines.###
