RSU signs partnership with DSWD’s Listahanan

ODIONGAN, Romblon- Represented by its President, Dr. Arnulfo De Luna, the Romblon State University (RSU) forged partnership with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) on Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on Data Sharing under the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction better known as ‘Listahanan.’

“Listahanan is an information management system that identifies who and where the poor are in the country. This system makes available to government and non-government institutions a database of poor families as basis in identifying potential beneficiaries of social protection programs such as Pantawid Pamilya and Sustainable Livelihood and Social Pension,” said DSWD MiMaRoPa Regional Director Wilma Naviamos.

Under the said partnership, DSWD will provide assistance to its partners in implementing programs and services that will alleviate poverty and empower disadvantaged individuals and poor families.

RSU Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Elvin Gaac said that access to the DSWD’s list of poor households particularly on the health component will be an effective reference to their school researches.

Moreover, MOA on Data Sharing protects the confidentiality of the database and ensure that data are used only for its intended purposes. This is in consonance with the Data Privacy Act of 2012, which is intended to protect the integrity and security of personal data in both the private and public sectors, according to Naviamos.

Stipulated further in the agreement is that the data user must integrate Listahanan in all its social marketing activities – highlighting the use of the targeting system in identifying beneficiaries of local social protection programs.

“We are very positive with this partnership. We are looking forward to a stronger relationship between DSWD and our university to help our clients in a better way,” Dr. Gaac concluded. RSU has nine campuses in Romblon province and is expected to prepare a feedback report on data utilization as part of this agreement.

To date, three State Universities and Colleges (SUC) have signed a MOA with DSWD, Palawan State University, Palawan Polytechnic College Inc., and RSU. ###

DSWD seeks support from local stakeholders for 2014 Listahanan assessment


Bulalacao local officials give inputs on how the Listahanan  assessment will come up a better and accurate result.

BULALACAO, ORIENTAL MINDORO- The Department of Social Welfare and Development  (DSWD) Field Office IV- MiMaRoPa intensifies  its campaign  for  support from local government units and stakeholders for the Listahanan nationwide household assessment this second quarter of 2014.

In a meeting organized by the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program Municipal Links last March 29, 2014 at the Bulalacao Municipal Hall attended by CSOs partners and local officials, the National Household Targeting Unit has oriented participants on Listahanan and its relevance in the identification of beneficiaries of DSWD social protection programs. Highlight of the said orientation   was the role of stakeholders in the conduct of enumeration.

Issue on how to saturate all Indigenous People (IP) community was among concerns raised in the open forum. “We will provide assistance for this household assessment and make sure IP households in town will be included,” one of the  resolutions proposed by  School Principal Toto Genabe.

Prior to the meeting, Bulalacao Mayor Edna Villas said they will provide additional staff to assist DSWD enumerators on the conduct of house-to-house interviews. This is to ensure that all poor families in said municipality will be captured in the database and become potential beneficiaries of government programs.

There are four Area Supervisors and 19 Enumerators to be deployed targeting 9, 135 households in  entire Bulalacao.

In Oriental Mindoro, Listahanan targets a total of 177,459 households for enlistment. Nevertheless, DSWD asks the public to help monitor household assessment and be vigilant enough to report wrong doings of staff.

Early this March, the Department has conducted series of face-to-face orientation to some local government units in Oriental Mindoro and Romblon provinces to advocate support on this national activity.

Listahanan is the Department’s mechanism of identifying who and where the poor are that started in 2009 and has to be updated this year. ###
