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 conducts special household assessment in Kalayaan

KALAYAAN, Palawan- A total of 27 households are enumerated in the recent assessment conducted by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MIMAROPA in barangay Pagasa, municipality of Kalayaan.

The said assessment is part of the government’s databasing of poor families for potential social protection programs intervention through Listahanan, the mechanism of mapping out who and where the poor are nationwide.

In 2009 during the first nationwide assessment, Kalayaan was excluded. “Nagpapasalamat kami dahil ngayon, nakarating na ang DSWD dito sa aming isla sa kabila ng layo nito”, said Rizen Galva, one of the island residents.

Delivery of social services to Kalayaan remains a challenge due to its geographical distance.  The island can be reached either by boat or plane on which residents usually travel thru a government- owned ship which takes three to four days going to Puerto Princesa Palawan vice-versa.

Adhering to the goal of no should be left behind towards development, DSWD has reached Pagasa in coordination with the Naval Forces North West (NAVFORWEST) on November 24, 2015. Pagasa is the only barangay in the said municipality.

To date, DSWD is only implementing Supplementary Feeding Program (SFP) in Kalayaan together with the local government unit. SFP is the additional food provision to day care children, a mechanism to reduce extreme hunger and malnutrition in the country.

“Sana ang pagpunta ng DSWD ay ang susi para magbukas ang iba pang programa ng ibang sangay ng pamahalaan dito sa Kalayaan”, a hopeful resident said.

The municipality is a picture of isolation where health and education services are insufficient and still inaccessible.###

DSWD to validate initial list of poor families in MiMaRoPa

MALATE, Manila–  The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MiMaRoPa is set to validate initial result of the Listahanan second round household assessment in October.

Validation is the third phase of the Listahanan project cycle that opens initial list of poor families for verification purposes. List of the said families will be posted in all barangay halls for community verification.

Listahanan is a data management system that identifies who and where the poor are nationwide for possible social protection programs intervention, which started in 2009.

DSWD and the local government units will lead the validation processes through the creation of Local Verification Committee or LVC. The said committee will accept and resolve grievances and validation of initial profile of families in coordination with the Department’s Area Coordinators and Supervisors.

“We call the public to participate on this validation activity and ensure that they are included in our database,” said Editha B. Ocampo, Deputy Project Manager.

Early this year, household assessment has started administered by 1,233 enumerators covering five provinces, 70 municipalities and two cities with 1,459 barangays in MiMaRoPa.

Families who are not yet listed by our field staff last month are still given the chance to be interviewed thru our ‘On Demand Application’. They only need to coordinate our assigned staff located at the Local Social Welfare and Development Office in their areas, Ocampo added.

Listahanan has assessed 556,834 households regionwide – 166,406 in Oriental Mindoro; 84,811 in Occidental Mindoro; 49,098 Marinduque; 57,324 in Romblon;  and 199,195 in Palawan.###

“Hired staff will play vital roles in this validation and finalization phase of the Listahanan cycle. They will be deployed in the barangays to address undercoverage or households who were not previously interviewed, through the On-Demand Application (ODA),’’ Listahanan Field Coordinator Ernie Jarabejo said.

ODA is part of the validation processes which gives chance to families to be included in the list of poor and non-poor families.

Field staff will also accept and resolve grievances from the concerned individuals and families regarding the initial results of household data collection in coordination with the Local Verification Committee (LVC) of the municipality and the Convergence Municipal Action Teams, composed of various municipal field-based staff and other stakeholders, Jarabejo added.

Listahanan is a mechanism of the Department in the selection of poor families for government’s social protection programs which started in 2009.  Early this year, the second round of household assessment has  started, which covered more than half a million households regionwide.

Applicants must have completed at least 2-years of college education, experience in household assessment or other surveys, physically fit and willing to be assigned in remote areas.

Validation of results will start on  October 2015 and is expected to be completed on November 2015.

Applications may be sent thru e-mail to fo4b@dswd.gov.ph  or submitted personally at the Social Welfare and Development Team office in the MiMaRoPa provinces.###
