A Dreamer with a Golden Heart  

“Hindi mo kailangang magkaroon ng yaman para ikaw ay makatulong sa iba. Bata ka man o matanda, ang maliit na bagay na itutulong mo sa iba ay malaki ang magiging epekto sa kanila. (You don’t need to be wealthy and rich to be able to help those who are in need. Young or old, a small help you can give will have a big impact on the lives of the needy).

For Adeli D. Tan, 14 years old, from Sitio Cambarwang, Brgy. Adela, Rizal, Occidental Mindoro, helping others does not require anything special since the smallest act of kindness can do a great amount of good to others. Known for her desire to help other people in need, Ada, as her friends and family fondly call her, shares that there is a positive feeling when she do things that make other people happy. This feeling inspires her more to strive hard and finish her studies so that one day, she can help more people.

During Typhoon Josie which caused flood in their neighborhood, Ada exerted effort to help families who were affected by starting a donation drive in school. Their house was also flooded but she chose to help even in a simple way.

Her family does not have much but her parents showered Ada and her little brother, with kindness and love which taught her to be more empathic towards other people. “Naiisip ko po kasi na may mga taong mas nangangailangan ng tulong, kaya lagi akong willing tumulong din sa kanila (I believe that there are other people who needs more help, that’s why I am always willing to help them),” Ada said.

At Grade 9 in Rizal National High School, Ada already knows that helping others is one way to achieve her success in life.


A farmer’s daughter

Ada’s family lives a simple life in the farm.

Her father, Adelo, 55, is a farmer but does not own a piece of land. He earns a living through tending his relative’s farm. His income is only 10% of his harvest which means that he only takes 10 sacks of rice if he harvested 100 sacks. Meanwhile, her mother, Neftali, 41, helps her father financially through selling vegetables from her backyard garden. Ada is the eldest child. She has a little brother named, Adelino, 8 years old, who is in Grade 3. Their house is far away from the main road and is muddy when it rains.

As a child, Ada already knows that life is difficult. They do not have enough money to buy material things she needs and wants. Hence, since then, she learned to be contented on what her parents can provide them.

Wala naman para sa akin kung hindi ako makabili ng materyal na bagay na gusto ko basta kahit papaano ay nakukuha ko lang ang kailangan ko kasi balang araw, makakabili din naman ako ng mga gusto ko ‘pag nakapagtapos na ako ng pag-aaral (What matters to me most is I can have essential things that I need every day because, I know that when I finish my studies I can buy whatever I want),” Ada explained.

She narrated that when she was in elementary, she goes to school with only P10.00 as her baon, which she uses to pay her tricycle fare going to school and back to their house. For lunch, her only ulam is bagoong which she pairs with rice. When she does not have any food and money to bring, she walks her way to school and back home and only eats nilagang saging during lunch so that she can tame her growling stomach.

Isang beses nung Grade 4 sya, naghahanap pa lang sana ako ng pera para ipangbaon nya kasi walang-wala kami kasi naawa naman ako sa bata na papasok na walang baon. Pero pagbalik ko, nakaalis na pala sya para pumasok sa eskwela (One time when she was in Grade 4, I was looking for money to give her because we do not have any and I feel sad if she goes to school without money. But when I get back, she had already gone to school),” narrated her mother.

After school, she does not forget her responsibilities at home as she helps her mother with the household chores and teaches her brother with his assignments.

Ada’s biggest inspiration is her father. She sees how her father works hard in order to provide for their needs. If there is no work in the farm, her father goes out in the sea to fish for their food or sell in the market.

Nararamdaman ko yung hirap ni Tatay para lang makapagbigay sa amin. Papasok ako sa umaga, madaling araw pa lang ay nasa bukid na siya tapos pagbalik ko galing eskwela, inaabot pa rin siya ng dilim at minsan naabutan pa ng masamang panahon (I am aware of how my father works hard to provide for us. When I go to school, he is already in the fields early in the morning and when I get back home, he is caught in the dark of the evening and sometimes caught in a bad weather),” Ada said.

Ada understands her family’s situation. This has helped her more to study hard in order to help her family get out of poverty. Since pre-school, she is a consistent honor student who has already received 46 medals and a lot of certificates for her academic excellence.

Since they do not have electricity at home, her family was able to spend time together more. Her parents play with them and help them with their assignments and projects. They sleep together and talk to each other before going to sleep. They make sure that they practice open communication in their family. They also value going to church together every Sunday since their family believes that faith in God should be the center of their household.

Ada has a hard life, but experiencing these difficulties has made her more appreciative of what she has and more understanding of other people’s difficulty as well.


Provider of noble service

Ada is not only known for her excellent grades in school but also through her good image in helping other people.

Mabait, mapagbigay, honest, at supportive po si Ada. Kahit pagod na pagod na siya ay handa pa rin po siyang tumulong sa iba. Kahit ako ay tinuturuan niya sa mga assignments namin (Ada is kind, generous, honest, and supportive. Even though she is tired, she is always willing to help others. She had also helped me with our assignments)”, said Gracelyn Manugay, one of her classmates.

As an active member of different organizations in their community and in school, Ada was able to reach more people in need. Being a member of the Youth for Christ in St. Peter Parish in their municipality, she was able to promote spiritual wellness among other youths. As she serves as the Grade 9 Governor in the Student Supreme Government (SSG), she becomes the voice of her fellow students, bringing their concerns to their teachers. She is also the President of the RNHS Sports Enthusiast Club where she helps in raising funds for the materials they need during their sports activities. She is also serves as a volunteer in their RNHS Student-Led Watching Team where she participates in the conduct of feeding programs to the Indigenous Peoples (IPs) of their community and packs relief goods during disaster.

In many occasions, Ada has already demonstrated her kindness to others. When someone needs her help, she is always there for them.

One of the situations she recalls is when her cousin runs to her for help with her project when she was in Grade 8. The project involves typing and printing but since they have no money to go to a computer shop, Ada accompanied her cousin to her teacher so that they can finish her cousin’s project. Even though she is also working with her own assignments that night, she waited for her cousin to finish her work before going home to do hers.

She also told a story when she had helped one of the candidates during their Foundation Day in 2017. She noticed that an escort from Grade 7 was preparing by himself for the pageant and was about to cry since he was not accompanied by any of his parents or a handler.  Ada felt pity so she called her other classmates to help her in preparing and fixing his clothes.

Noong naglakad na siya sa stage nun, napaiyak po ako kasi nakita ko na umaliwalas yung mukha nya dahil sa ginawa ko. Kahit po pala yung simpleng gawain mo ay makakapagpangiti sa iba (When he walked on the stage, I cried because I saw how his face brightened after what I did. I realized that even small actions can make other people smile),Ada said tearfully as she reminisced that day.

On July 23, 2018, Occidental Mindoro was declared in a state of calamity due to Typhoon Josie. Sitio Cambarwang was affected, and Ada’s house was flooded. They needed to evacuate their house and transfer to the barangay evacuation center for a day until the flood receded. Their house is still intact but some of their things were drifted by the flood. When her mother went back to the evacuation center to check on their other relatives whose houses were destroyed by the typhoon, she discovered that most families in there do not have any clothes with them. So, her mother told Ada to look for clothes in their closet which they can bring to the families. This has led Ada to start a donation drive with her classmates so she can deliver the goods to her neighbors.

Noong July, pagkatapos ng baha, nagulat ako na may dalang damit at goods ang mga kaklase niya at napagalaman ko na siya (Ada) pala ang humingi ng tulong sa mga kaklase nya para ibigay sa mga kabarangay niya na nasalanta, initiative niya yun. Umiiyak siya nung kausap ko siya dahil kailangan daw talaga ng mga kabarangay niya, (On July, after the flooding, I was surprised to see my students brought clothes and goods in class and I came to know that she (Ada) asked her classmates for help so she can give it to her neighbors who were affected by the typhoon. It was her initiative. She was crying when I talked to her because according to her, her neighbors really need those things),” shared Precious Melody T. Norella, her classroom adviser.

Ada’s act of kindness to her neighborhood was recognized in their barangay led by their Barangay Captain Romeo Aguirre. “Hindi siya nagdadalawang-isip sa kung ano ang maari niyang itulong. Isa rin siyang magandang modelo sa kapwa kabataan niya at naniniwala ako na ang katulad niya ang kailangan ng lipunan upang umunlad sa tulong ng pamahalaang local at BLGU. Proud ako sa kaniya, (She did not think twice on what she can give to help. She is a good model for the youth and I believe that someone like her is needed by the community to develop with the help of the local government and BLGU. I am proud of her)”, Capt. Aguirre said.

With this, more people were impressed with Ada for her passion in helping others.

Ang naisip ko po kasi noon ay maswerte pa kami dahil hindi kami umabot sa ganoong malalang kalagayan (I thought to myself that we are still fortunate to not experience any of that),” Ada said.

Ada may have her own problems and difficulties, but she has a desire to give help especially when she is needed.

Kahit mahirap kasi ang buhay, tinutulungan ko rin po ang mga taong mas nangangailangan dahil kahit papaano ay mayroon din naman kasing tumutulong sa amin – ang programa ng 4Ps (Life is hard but I still try to help those in need because at the very least we have 4Ps to help us)”, she shared.


Recipient of help

When she was in Grade 1, Ada’s family were included as one of the beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program.

Mas narealize ko yung tulong ng programa noong Grade 4 ako dahil nakikita ko na nakakabili na ako ng mga bagay na kailangan ko sa school at may gatas na rin kami at vitamins (I appreciated the program’s help more when I was in Grade 4 because I was able to buy school supplies as well as milk and vitamins),” Ada said.

According to her, since becoming a beneficiary of the program, her family has been more prepared during disaster or if any of them becomes sick. Her father’s income cannot really finance all of their needs but with the help of the program, the grants they receive is used their household’s other expenses.

Moreover, Ada shared that before the program, her mother does not give attention to their backyard garden. But after their discussion on bio-intensive gardening, her mother uses the garden to provide them more nutritious meals as well as use it as another source of income.

According to her, “dahil sa 4Ps, mas nagkaroon ako ng pag-asa na mayroon akong masasandalan bukod sa pamilya ko (4Ps made me realize that I have a someone to rely on other than my family).”

Nabuksan isip ko na hindi porket mahirap ay mananatili kang mahirap. Maraming maaring gawin para umunlad at mayroong sangay ng gobyerno na tutulong sa aming mahihirap upang maabot ang pangarap. At masusuklian namin yun sa pag-aaral nang mabuti upang matulungan ang aming komunidad (I realized that if you were born poor, you will not be poor your entire life. There are many government agencies that will aid us to reach our dreams. And we can give back by studying hard so we can help our community),” she added.

The help from the program that she receives motivates her more to uplift not only their lives but also the lives of other people in their community through studying hard and giving her best in school.


A future thinker

Ada, like other children, is a dreamer. She dreams of having a house made of stone for her family to live in in the future. She dreams of finishing her studies and becoming a bank employee, dressing up in a corporate attire.

Ang gusto ko lang naman po ay makapagtapos ng pag-aaral para maramdaman naman ng magulang ko ang kaginhawaan sa buhay (All I want is to finish my studies so that I can provide a good life to my parents),” Ada said.

She also dreams for her community to be peaceful, free from harm and violence for the children, has a clean environment, and where all people lives harmoniously. She dreams to help other people in need as long as she can give so that everyone in her community can uplift their lives.

Hindi ko sila matutulungan ng pinansyal, pero balang-araw, kapag ako ay nakapagtapos, matutulungan ko sila. Sa ngayon, ang magagawa ko ay hikayatin ang mga kabataan na lumaban sa kahirapan para maisip nila ‘yung mangyayari sa future kapag positive lang ang ginagawa nila (I won’t be able to help them now financially, but after I graduate, I know I will be able to help them more. For now, what I can do is persuade the youth to fight against poverty so that they will realize what good they will experience in the future if they only do positive things),” she said.

Her situation in life does not hinder her to study hard and keep the fire burning to achieve her dreams.

Indeed, Ada serves as an inspiration to all. With her kindness and golden heart, everyone believes that a good future awaits her. ###

Sama-samang pag-abot sa mga Katutubo ng Kabanaw

Pinamalayan, Occidental Mindoro – The Pinamalayan Convergence Team composed of the different field staff from the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, Modified Conditional Cash Transfer Program for IP, and Sustainable Livelihood Program Staff  of the Department of Welfare and Development Field Office MIMAROPA  celebrated the Indigenous Peoples Month through an outreach program as their Convergence Initiative held in Sitio Kabanaw, Brgy. Marayos, Pinamalayan, Oriental Mindoro on October 26, 2018.

The team tapped possible agencies and individuals to gather donations to be brought to farthest part of the mountain where the small tribe can be found. Many helping hands extended their help which made the convergence initiative possible.

The day started early for the team as they had reached Brgy. Marayos six in the morning as they look forward for what lies ahead in the community to be visited. They spent almost two hours of walking and trekking on the muddy and steep road before reaching their target area.

It was exactly 8:00 AM when they reached the Kabanaw IP community. They were welcomed with greetings and innocent smiles of the children which were already waiting for them.

As soon as the group reached the community, the barangay captain together with the tribal leader and other volunteers started calling all of the residents to formally start the program and welcome the team. The barangay captain rendered the welcome remarks and appreciated the efforts of the team for initiating such activity for the indigenous people. Brief discussion on Disaster Preparedness was being discussed by Municipal Link Regina Dela Pena and ways on how to properly plant different vegetables was shared by Sustainable Livelihood Program PDO-II Mark Gil Aban.

Profiling of Households was conducted by Municipal Links Rhonalee Carle, Mylene Espino and Jennifer Galan, Social Welfare Assistant John Paolo Mendoza and Municipal Roving Book Keeper Verna Divina. The compiled Household Profiling will be sent to possible partners for further interventions needed by the community.

While the parents are busy in the conduct of the interview for household profiling, Municipal Links Regina Dela Pena, Melani Joy Tabernero, SLP PDO-II Geanie Goco, Mark Aban, Carlo Marasigan and MCCT PDO-II Haniely Rey facilitated the parlor games with the IP children.

The donations collected by the team were distributed after the conduct of the discussion and were also used as prizes for the winning teams of the games.

True to its objectives, the activity was able to provide knowledge to the IP beneficiaries on the program’s processes and other topics which can help them in uplifting their lives. It also provided an avenue to the beneficiaries to break away from their normal routine from working in the fields and provide them supplies and materials which they can use.

At the end of the activity, the IP beneficiaries of Sitio Kabanaw bid farewell to the team and to the volunteers who participated the event with smile on their faces signifying the success of the convergence initiative. ###

Organic Farming BIG: small steps toward family development and sustainability

Resource Speaker Jerwin Jake Pamanilay (blue-green shirt) with the participants from Poblacion and Tangkalan during the simulation of the Fermented Plant Juice (FPJ) concoction at the Training on Organic Farming; Bio- Intensive Gardening on October 11, 2018 at the Balansay Gym

Mamburao, Occidental Mindoro – Two hundred partner beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office MIMAROPA from the different barangays in the Municipality of Mamburao attended the training on Organic Farming focusing on Bio- Intensive Gardening held at the Balansay Gymnasium, Barangay Balansay. The activity was organized by the Municipal Action Team (MAT) of Mamburao in coordination with the Local Government Unit of Mamburao, the Municipal Agriculture Office, the Provincial Government of Occidental Mindoro, and the Provincial Agriculture Office on October 11-12, 2018.

The Department periodically conducts assessments on the impact of the Program to the partner beneficiaries, one of which is the Social Welfare and Development Indicator (SWDI). The most recent SWDI was administered last 2015 where out of 1, 851 assessed households in the Municipality, there were 849 households under level 2 on the indicator of employable skills (ES), meaning, they have employable skills but are not duly recognized by authorities. These household beneficiaries derived their skills from non-formal and informal trainings.

Lack of employable skills of the adult household members may adversely affect the economic and financial status of the family, thus, to augment the skills of the concerned households under SWDI ES level 2, the Municipal Action Team of Mamburao organized a skills training where the participants would be taught relevant tips on organic farming and bio-intensive gardening. These tips may be applied in their backyard, communal and container gardening which may bring the family additional income.

The training started with the preliminaries facilitated by the MAT members of Mamburao followed by the introduction of the first speaker Ms. Floreda Rosales, who discussed the basics of Organic Farming and Bio-Intensive Gardening. Her topics include Land Preparation, Seedling Preparation, Propagation and Transplanting, Weeding, Fertilizer Application and Harvesting.

After her discussion and all questions raised were answered, her partner, Mr. Jerwin Jake Pamanilay explained the preparation of the different concoctions which will be used in organic farming. Then he invited the participants per barangay to simulate the preparation of the ingredients they brought for a specific concoction. Poblacion prepared the fermented plant juice (FPJ), Balansay for the fermented fruit juice (FFJ), Payompon and Tayamaan for Oriental Herbal Nutrients (OHN) while the rest of the barangays helped assisted in each simulation including the preparation of the Calcium Phosphate (CAL-PHOS).

After all the simulations, a commitment setting was done where the participants met per barangay and decided what kind of garden they will be doing individually, per sitio, or per barangay. Their plan also includes a monitoring process and evaluation where the best and most productive garden will be decided upon by judges on December 2018 and with prize to be lobbied by the training team.

To culminate the activity, each were given a tamarind, coffee, and pomelo seedlings.

The participants expressed their gratitude and appreciation of the activity which further enhanced their knowledge and skills on organic farming and bio-intensive gardening.

“Ang mga seedling na ito ay aming itatanim, palalaguin at aalagaan hanggang sila ay magbunga katulad ng pagbunga ng Programa sa bawat isang Pamilyang tinutulungan nito”, words of commitment of parent leader Susima Vilbes of Fatima.###

Pagsaulog 2018: A Fusion of Culture, Volunteerism and Collective Action

Malate, Manila—The 2nd National Community Volunteers’ Congress and 4th National Bayani Ka Awards was successfully conducted last October 2-4, 2018 in Cebu City. It was attended by at least 260 community volunteers of DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS and Local Government Unit (LGU) officials from across the country. The event’s theme is “Pagsaulog” a Visayan word which means festivity or celebration. This occasion celebrated the the noteworthy contribution of the Community Volunteers towards the success of the Kalahi-CIDSS program. More so, the occasion hailed the exemplary Kalahi-CIDSS Operation and Maintenance (O&M) groups that were awarded as “Bayani” during each region’s Regional Bayani Ka! Awards. These groups were awarded the prestigious Bayani Ka Award because of their remarkable ways of mobilizing their communities towards a collective community action.

The participants were welcomed by DSWD Field Office 7 Assistant Regional Director for Operations (ARDO) Shalaine Lucero. ARDO Lucero mentioned in her speech the importance of the Community Volunteers in Kalahi-CIDSS. “Walang Kalahi-CIDSS kung wala ang mga masisipag na community volunteers” [There is no Kalahi-CIDSS without the industrious Community Volunteers]. ARDO Shalaine’s speech was followed by the presentation of the current state of the Kalahi-CIDSS program by the National Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist Miss Abegail dela Cruz. This presentation was proceeded with the Communication Specialist Miss Maria Rosario Lagman’s presentation of the current status of Volunteerism in the Philippines. To conclude the first day of the activity, the participants were pampered with free massage and free nail care services courtesy of DSWD Field Office 7.

On the second day, the delegates were divided into three groups to visit the municipalities of Moalboal, Pinamungajan, and Dalaguete in Cebu. The field visit was conducted to serve as an avenue of exchange of knowledge between the community volunteers from the three visited Kalahi-CIDSS municipalities and the delegates of the National Community Volunteers’ Congress.

While the volunteers were on immersion, the LGU officials had an executive meeting with the Municipal Inter-Agency Committee of their visited municipalities. They shared their ideas and strategies on how Community-Driven Development (CDD) could be institutionalized in their respective municipalities.

The volunteers had sessions where they shared their knowledge on their project implementation techniques. They also had discussions about the opportunities given to them because of their involvement with the Kalahi-CIDSS program. Before returning to Cebu City to complete their field visit, the participants went to different sub-project sites in their visited municipalities.

On the last day of the activity, the participants had an open forum on their field immersion with the Community Volunteers from Cebu. The participants shared their learning and their insights. They also committed to share these learning and insights to their co-volunteers once they return to their communities.

In the evening of the last day of Pagsaulog2018, the notable volunteer groups were hailed and honored on the 4th National Bayani Ka! Awards. Almost 106 volunteer groups from nine award categories were honored. ###
