In partnership with Marinduque State College (MSC), the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) conducted a series of skills training on meat processing last January 27-28 and February 2-3, 2018.

Participants from various barangays of Boac gathered at the food laboratory of MSC. The organizers also invited Ms. Nenita Gonzales and Ms. Ma. Edelwina Blasé who served as resource speakers for the training.

Participants answered the pre-test examination before they were assembled into smaller groups for the training proper. Some of the discussions include the principles and procedure of meat processing, meat preservation, and even food presentation which the participants enjoyed a lot.

Each group was then assigned to evaluate the performance and product of the other groups through food tasting. Two of the participants shared their insights on the overall training before the certificates and tokens were awarded to the speakers.

SLP partners with different service providers for the conduct of skills training to hone the participants on the modality they chose.

Cooperative Development Authority conducts Capacity Building to SLP-assisted Project

On January 11, 2018, the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) conducted a capacity building activity to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP)-assisted project in Bangbangalon, Boac, Marinduque.

Bangbangalon Consumers Cooperative is an organized SLP Association which was developed into cooperative to engage in catering and feeds retailing.

Mr. Rey Evangelista, a CDA staff, conducted a reorientation about the definition and importance of cooperatives, and roles of officers and members. He also held a coaching and mentoring session for the participants to better understand the value of cooperatives in the micro-enterprise development. He emphasized that it is the members of cooperative who could bring success to the cooperative more than the other way around.

The extent of the cooperative’s achievement depends on their synergetic perseverance. Transparency and increasing membership is also a top secret for the longevity of their organization.

CDA provides technical assistance to SLP-assisted cooperatives as part of their commitment to the Provincial NGANI partnership of Marinduque dated April 12, 2016 to work hand-in-hand in helping communities prosper economically.

DSWD Listahanan ends roadshow in Occidental Mindoro

Students of Occidental Mindoro State College participate the Listahanan Roadshow.

SAN JOSE-  The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MIMAROPA completed the Listahanan provincial roadshow in Occidental Mindoro.

Joined by students and local government employees and officials, the last stop of roadshows were conducted in Occidental Mindoro State College- Labangan Campus on November 20-21; San Jose Municipal Hall on November 22; and Occidental Mindoro Provincial Capitol in Mamburao town on November 23-24, 2017.

Earlier this year, roadshows were held in Marinduque, Palawan, and Oriental Mindoro provinces. In 2016, the first roadshow was held in Romblon.

“These roadshows aim to continue to advocate the regional profile of the poor to academe, local government units and the general public,” told Listahanan MIMAROPA Coordinator Ernie H. Jarabejo.

Listahanan is the government mechanism of identifying who and where the poor are nationwide. This system provides a database of poor families to social protection stakeholders which can be used as the basis for selecting potential beneficiaries of pro-poor programs and services.

In Occidental Mindoro out of 91,707 total households assessed and validated, 39, 182 or 47% are identified poor.

On the other hand, the provincial government of Occidental Mindoro has expressed the interest to enter into an agreement with DSWD to use the Listahanan data in planning and implementing local social protection programs.###

Mogpog’s School Jeepney Project now in Operation

The School Jeepney Project of Mendez Pantawid Sustainable Livelihood Program Association (SLPA) has started its implementation as the jeepney was bought last August 30, 2017.

The Mendez Pantawid SLPA was organized on March 15, 2016 composed of forty-five beneficiaries. Based on the result of the Participatory Livelihood Issue Analysis (PLIA), the beneficiaries were able to identify that the main problem of the community is the limited means of transportation.

Brgy. Mendez, a hilly, rocky road which is about 20 kilometers away from town, is one of the interior barangays of Mogpog. There were only two units of Public Utility Jeepney that take passengers, goods, and merchandise from remote barrio of Mendez to Mogpog and vice versa. In addition, the parents of beneficiaries worry for the safety and health of their children going to school especially during rainy season. Most students have no other option but to ride and hang either on the top load or behind the jeep just to get home.

To address these identified gaps, the Municipal Action Team of Mogpog initiated the School Jeepney Project of the community through Seed Capital Fund modality of SLP. The jeepney is now the school service of the students going to Butansapa National High School in the morning and afternoon. The jeepney driver passes another route from Balacanan to Buenavista and vice versa for additional income.

The jeepney costs PHP 350,000.00 in total. During the monitoring, the project earns an average income of PHP 8,000.00 in two months of operation. The project was able to employ a non-pantawid member as the regular driver with a monthly salary of not less than PHP 5,000.00. The parents and all the beneficiaries are thankful for granting this kind of livelihood that addresses the transportation problem of the community and also helps in ensuring the safety of their children.
