One Dream Down: A Girl’s Journey to Success

Looking back to her list of 50 things she wants to achieve in life, Angela said that she had already crossed out many of them.

One of those is to graduate in college.

Despite the many hardships and challenges she experienced being from a family belonging to the marginalized sector, she had never thought that she will be able to get over through the winding road of her journey.

Her determination to take her family out from poverty became her motivation to keep on moving forward.

At an early age, Angela Mae Tacan, 19 years old from Taytay, Palawan, knows how complicated her life is. She was raised by her biological mother and stepfather, not knowing about her father. She lives with them and their 4 children and considers them as her true family.

Her stepfather was able to finance their needs through his small income from gardening.

Angela, as the eldest, felt a need to help her parents in supporting their family.

When she was in high school, Angela needs to rent a boarding house since the only school providing secondary education in their municipality is far away from their house. And to pay for her fee, she brings the vegetables harvested by her father to their land lady as an exchange for her rent. She also works with her land lady as their labandera and helps her in running their store. Having a talent in crafts and arts, Angela also helps her classmates with their projects and her teachers in designing their classrooms for which she is paid. Since she needs to budget her P50.00 allowance per week, she walks to their house from her boarding house with a 7 kilometer distance.

Ang pinaka hindi ko malilimutan nung high school ay nung sinabi ng adviser ko sa stepfather ko na magaling daw ako at napakasipag, sabi ng stepfather ko, kapag nakikita nya na ang anak nyang nagsisikap, magsisikap din sya. Doon ko naramdaman na kahit di ako tunay na anak, kaya nya akong ipagmalaki,” Angela narrated as she sheds her tears.

Angela was awarded as their class’ First Honorable Mention and her stepfather walked up to the stage with her to give her the medal during their graduation. But at that moment, Angela knew that her complicated life is not yet over. It was just the beginning of her leap to a yet most difficult part of her student life—getting into college.


Reaching the Dream

Angela is eager to study college even though she knows the struggle of their parents in sending them to school having experienced it in high school.

Mahalaga po kasi sa akin ang makapagtapos ng pag-aaral kasi alam kong ito yung tutulong sa akin para maiahon ko ang pamilya ko sa hirap,” she said.

She passed the entrance exam in West Philippines University – Puerto Princesa and took up Bachelor of Science in Education (BSED) with a major in Biological Science. She received half scholarship grant being an honor student yet, her mother needs to borrow money to pay for her tuition fee since their father’s income is still not enough to pay for it. Knowing this, she tried other scholarship exams but was not accepted.

Before their classes start, Angela needed to find a boarding house where she can stay. When she found one, she cannot pay the rent so she asked the landlady if she could stay for the night and told her that she will pay tomorrow once she received the money from her mother.

Ang higaan ko lang noon ay karton at wala man lang akong kumot at unan,” she described.

When she started studying, she budgeted her P200.00 allowance for projects, books, and food. She works as a dishwasher in a karinderia. Most of the time, she buys one pack of soy sauce and cooking oil to pair with rice as her meal for the whole week. “Minsan kapag di ko na kaya na ganun, asin at tubig naman. Medyo madami po kasi kaming binibili sa school kaya kung ano matira yun ang para sa pagkain,” she said. It is more important for her to feed her hungry mind than her hungry stomach.

“Hindi na po ako humihingi kay nanay kapag kulang kasi alam kong baka maubusan naman yung mga kapatid ko,” she added. Angela has to endure all of these because of her willingness to get her degree.


A Beautiful Surprise

While being lost in thought thinking of how she will get through another week with her remaining allowance, she was texted by the University to go to the student affairs office.

Akala ko may nagawa akong masama, yun pala ang sabi ni Ma’am, nakasama pala ako sa ESGP-PA na scholarship ng Pantawid at di ko na pala kailangan magbayad,” she narrated.

She cannot contain her happiness when she heard the news and she immediately call her mother to prepare the necessary documents needed for it.

Kaya pala hinindian ako ng mga taong iyon kasi masyado syang maliit para sa akin kaya thankful ako nung dumating sa aking ito dahil kumbaga ako yung kinatok ng program,” Angela called.

With the Expanded Students’ Grants-in-Aid Program for Poverty Alleviation (ESGP-PA) of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program in partnership of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), Department of Budget and Management (DBM), Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges (PASUC), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Angela is entitled to a P30,000.00 grant per semester or P60,000.00 grant per year which covers her tuition fees and other school fees, academic and other extracurricular expenses, textbooks, board and lodging, etc.

The scholarship was not only able to help her financially but it also opened other opportunities which honed her skills and let her rediscover herself.

Thankful po talaga ako sa program lalo na po’t ito ang naging way para makita ko ang biological father ko for the first time ng personal,” she said.

For 16 years, the only thing she knows about her father is that he was already dead. But when her Aunt told her that her father was looking for her, she somewhat felt incomplete.

Hinahanap ko siya sa FB pagkatapos ko pilitin si mama na ibigay ang pangalan nya. Gumawa ako agad ng FB kahit wala talaga akong account doon. Tapos ang nakita ko, nakatira sa Cavite pero ang alam ko taga Taytay siya kaya medyo hesitant pa ako noon. Minessage ko siya at tinanong kung kilala nya yung mama ko, tapos sabi niya oo daw at ibigay ko daw ang number ko sa kaniya dahil tatawagan niya ako,” she narrated.

She was then sent by their University as a representative to the ESGP-PA Regional Assembly conducted in Metro Manila on 2015. Before going back to Palawan, Angela and her biological father was able to see each other personally in the airport terminal. “Blessing in disguise talaga ang program para makita ko ang tatay ko,” she added.

Angela said that she will forever be thankful to the program for giving her glimmer of hope and for strengthening her will to keep on going despite her life’s hardship.


New Beginning, New Dreams

Reminiscing her life before being an ESGP-PA grantee, Angela cannot imagine how she was able to succeed dealing with her struggles. Looking back, she said it was those lessons that she did not learn from the books that she would always remember.

“Ang kahirapan hindi hadlang para maging successful ka sa buhay kasi kung determined ka, gagawa ka talaga ng paraan,” she said.

Still determined to help her family, Angela plans to teach while waiting for the board exam then she will apply to the Department of Education for work. The fire to learn is still alive in Angela as she plans to continue her masters degree.

“Hindi mo kasalanan maging mahirap; kasalanan mong mamatay kang mahirap hanggang sa huli,” she added.


As she receives her diploma on graduation day, Angela carries her biggest smile signaling a new beginning, new journey, and new dreams to make.###

Press Release: More than 30k Students to Complete Tertiary Education

Around 34,000 students from the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) are expected to graduate under the Expanded Students Grants-in-Aid Program for Poverty Alleviation (ESGPPA). The ESGPPA is implemented by the Commission on Higher Education together with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and State Universities and Colleges (SUCs).

We commend our graduates for making it this far. We also laud the unwavering support of their families that brought them to where they are right now. Despite the hardships and the difficulties, they did not falter”, shared DSWD Secretary Emmanuel Leyco.

In 2012, SGPPA was launched covering 4,000 students. This was later on expanded to cover additional 36,000 students in 2014.

The program provided opportunities to 4Ps households who have children who are determined to pursue college education and qualified for the scholarship. A college degree for the children-beneficiaries opens an opportunity for them to access better employment and help them improve their lives.

“We recognize that having a degree will not immediately translate to an improved quality of life, but it’s a stepping stone that will lead them to better opportunities. Through the program, we have given these poor children as well as their families a fighting chance to a better quality of life,”added Secretary Leyco.

Beneficiaries of the program are required to take up courses that are among those identified with the national development plans manpower demands. These include Information Technology (IT)-related courses in agriculture, education, science and math, engineering and health sciences-related courses.

The 4P’s or Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) is a program of the national government that invests in the health and education of poor households primarily of children aged 18 and below. It is implemented by the DSWD together with other government agencies to include the Department of Education (DepEd) and Department of Health (DoH).

It provides cash grants to compliant household beneficiaries with health grant worth P500 and educational grants worth P300 and P500.00 each to the children studying in elementary and high school, respectively. As of 30 March 2018, there are 4.3 million households enrolled in the program. ###

Beyond Vegetables: Gulayan sa Barangay connects and empowers beneficiaries


Because of its mountainous land-bound area, some barangays in the municipality of Roxas, Palawan have difficulty in accessing food. Considering its distance to the town proper and its rough road, most food such as vegetables, meat, and fish cost higher. This resulted to high malnutrition rate in 2016 based on the Social Welfare Development Indicator (SWDI) conducted, where 63 households from its five barangays such as Dumarao, Iraan, Mendoza, San Isidro, and Sandoval have children weighing below normal (underweight).

It is with the aim to address malnutrition and food insecurity that the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) through the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program enjoins program beneficiaries from this municipality in adopting bio-intensive-gardening (BIG) or Gulayan sa Barangay. But aside from malnutrition, the project has also helped beneficiaries to attend to their low income rate and practice camaraderie

through community organizing.

In   Brgy. Dumarao and Brgy. Mendoza, gulayan sa barangay has been strengthened after the conduct of a gardening contest known as the “Gulayan Festival” initiated by the program staff in partnership and support of the barangay local government unit. The contest served as their strategy to encourage households to give importance to proper nutrition, create successful model of sustainable communal gardens, and increase the level of public consciousness on the health and nutritional dimension as well as economic benefits of the community garden.  On November 2016, the gardening contest was announced after their Family Development Session module was discussed with topic on environmental education and information and organic agriculture orientation. It was then that the beneficiaries of the two barangays held their first meeting to establish their Gulayan sa Barangay project. After the FDS, some clusters of the barangay also gather to discuss task assignments of the members and their schedules to take turns in caring for the garden.

But before their bountiful yields, most gardens encountered difficulties in rearing their vegetables. Their first challenge was finding an available space for them to start their communal gardens. Some members of the cluster offered their vacant lot as a place to situate their gardens while some borrowed lands from their neighbors. In Sitio Old Site in Brgy. Mendoza, since there was no available area near a water system with a good soil to plant their vegetables, they made their own plot using organic fertilizers and loam soil.

The seeds that they use to plant in their gardens usually comes from the members’ own backyard garden or bought from the market. The Municipal Agricultural Office (MAO) as well as the Department of Agriculture (DA) provide them seedlings when there are available. Vegetables which are usually planted are eggplants, okra, pechay, sili, raddish, string beans, squash, and tomatoes, among others. In order to repel unwanted insects and pests to their crops, most of them use organic pesticides or plant flowers. Through adopting their knowledge from the seminar-workshops of DA, their communal gardens have also flourished.

Few months after their establishment, the members have begun seeing their improvements through their communal gardens. After their vegetables grew, the clusters sold their produce to their local neighbors or each of the member for their own consumption. In Sitio Lower Ilian-Ilian in Brgy. Dumarao, some of its members sold their produce in the market since some of them are vegetable vendors. Meanwhile in Sitio Itabiak, also in Brgy. Dumarao, a vegetable supplier buys their yields in wholesale to be sold in the market for retailers. They have been able to generate income from their yields which they saved for future uses of the group. In Sitio Old Site, they were able to bought a female swine for dispersal within their cluster. They get all the expenses of their hog raising in the income of their communal garden as well. Each participating cluster of the Gulayan Festival has gained 3,000 pesos to 10,000 pesos since their first harvest.

On July 2017, winners of the garden in Brgy. Dumarao are Sitio Masaya 1, Sitio Itabiak, and Sitio Lower Ilian-Ilian. Meanwhile, in Brgy. Mendoza, Sitio Old Site, Sitio Proper 2, and Sitio Little Baguio/Taliwara were announced as winners. After the contest, the six sitios from the two barangays continued their communal garden as all members have seen its impact to their selves, their children, and their community. “Ang maganda dito ma’am, hindi na naming kailangan pang bumili ng gulay para sa mga anak namin. Dito alam namin na ligtas yung mga tanim at mura pa. Kahit papaano, kapag walang makain, gulay na lang ang kinakain namin at masustansya pa,” Elvie Sabuya, member of Sitio Proper 2 cluster, said. Because of its lower price compared to those being sold in the market, most households in the community, beneficiaries or non-beneficiaries, turn to their communal garden to buy vegetables.

In some clusters, beneficiaries are often seen gambling but after the establishment of the communal garden, they were able to find an activity to keep them busy. More than the money they get, the members said that they can also practice bayanihan which strengthens their sense of camaraderie. “Maganda din po itong gulayan namin kasi mas tumitibay ang relasyon naming miyembro kumpara noong dati na pagkatapos ng FDS ay uuwi na lang. Minsan dito na kami nagpapalipas ng oras para mapawi rin ba ng problema,” said Emmi Delaguna, parent leader of Sitio Proper 2.

Due to its long-term benefits, it was on June 2017 that Ms. Valerie Magallado, their Municipal Link, recommended to the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) that the communal gardens of these sitios become an association to the modality of Seed Capital Fund. With the eagerness of each member to improve their communal gardens, the proposal has been accomplished and submitted and is waiting for approval.

After more than a year of establishment, beyond issues of food access on these two barangays, the Gulayan sa Barangay project has been seen as about building social ties, sharing skills and experience, learning about nature, and taking proactive measures to improve their well-being as well as their economic sustainability. And despite the challenges they encountered, they remained determined to continue their communal gardens hoping that hunger and food insecurity among Pantawid beneficiaries in the area will be eliminated in the long term, in order to reduce the impact of poverty. ###

CVs and MCTs Participate in Community Scorecard Training

Manila, Metro Manila– On March 6-9, 2018, the Department of Social Welfare and Development – KALAHI CIDSS NCDDP hosted a four-day Community Scorecard (CSC) Training at The Pearl Manila Hotel.

The use of CSC as a community-monitoring tool will strengthen the program’s engagement with the communities and enhance the accountability reporting. Out of the 64 municipalities in the MIMAROPA region, eight (8) partner-municipalities were selected to roll-out the tool within the first half of the year: Bansud, Gloria, Calatrava, Ferrol, Araceli, Magsaysay (Palawan), Cuyo and Narra.

The CSC workshop started by looking at the existing governance context of local public service delivery, and how DSWD Kalahi CIDSS – NCDDP operates in the said framework. This discussion served to structure the succeeding sharing of actual experiences by both community beneficiaries and program implementers in creating participatory monitoring of their localities.

The main part of the workshop focused on the creation of an input tracking matrix and two different sets of scorecards that were borne out of the group’s own standards and criteria. The process culminated in an interface meeting wherein service providers and service users discuss the results of their respective scorecards, identify emerging issues, and come to agreements on how to address or resolve these. Workshop sessions on each part of the CSC process featured a module-approach by the resource persons, followed by a hands-on activity wherein participants simulated the step of the CSC activity, and a reflection exercise which tried to draw out insights from the process.
