From the  569,000 households assessed  regionwide, about  207,863 were identified as poor in MIMAROPA or Occidental and Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan provinces.

Solo parent Benefits

Qualified solo parents may avail the parental leave; educational benefits from the Department of Education and Commission on Higher Education; livelihood training from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, as well as allocations in low cost housing projects and medical assistance.

DSWD has organized the MIMAROPA Solo Parents Employees Association to promote the welfare and rights of solo parent staff and their children. Also, the Department has allocated Php10,000.00 for livelihood assistance to qualified solo parent beneficiaries.

12182217_10208075089301913_192474336_n

DSWD highlights the government’s social protection framework for the vulnerable, marginalized and disadvantaged sectors.

PUERTO PRINCESA CITY, Palawan- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MiMaRoPa conducted its second Listahanan Anti-poverty Symposium in accordance with the United Nations international day celebration for eradicating extreme hunger and poverty on October 28, 2015.

This year’s theme is Building a sustainable future: Coming to end poverty and discrimination.

“The Department, together with other partner-stakeholders in eradicating poverty here in MiMaRoPa, embraces United Nations Guiding Principles on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights. Our collective efforts will surely protect and secure ordinary people especially those living in extreme poverty”, Regional Director Wilma D. Naviamos said.

DSWD is implementing social protection programs such as the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program; Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP); and Kapit Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS) and Social Pension Program for poverty alleviation regionwide.

In 2009, the Department’s Listahanan, a mechanism of identifying where and who the poor are, has identified 242,633 poor households in Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan provinces in which 196,029 households are already enrolled to Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program and 53,215 identified poor senior citizens are receiving P500.00 monthly pension.

Moreover, the city government of Puerto Princesa, National Anti-poverty Commission (NAPC), Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), National Economic development Authority (NEDA), and Palawan Council for Sustainable Development Staff (PCSDS) have presented their own sustainable anti-poverty programs implemented in Mimaropa region particularly in Palawan province.

A sustainable world cannot exist when there is poverty, discrimination and abuse of human rights. A sustainable world leaves no one behind, Naviamos concluded.

Poverty is occurring not only in the Philippines, but also in the rest of the world. Thus we are celebrating the World Day for Overcoming Extreme Poverty. This has been celebrated since 1987 and recognized by United Nations since 1992.###
