DSWD, LGU meet for the special validation of households affected by ‘Habagat’

The Department of Social Welfare and Development Regional Field Office III (DSWD FO III), through the National Household Targeting Unit (NHTU) conducted a coordination meeting on the conduct of special validation of households affected by Southwest Monsoon (Habagat) with the Local Social Welfare and Development Officers (LSWDOs) last January 9-10.

The activity was aimed to inform the City/Municipal Social Welfare and Development Officers (C/MSWDOs) on the rapid assessment/validation of households/families affected by Habagat in August and September 2012. The special validation targets to determine the present condition of the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR) identified poor or non-poor households in the affected areas; to define the poverty status of households that have not yet been assessed during the 2009 enumeration but were affected by the Habagat; and to generate a pool of potential beneficiaries for the expansion of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program. The result will serve as inputs in the formulation of adequate and responsive intervention to the affected households.

The NHTU also shared the number of target households to be assessed  which are 572, 526 households in 1,345 barangays. The province of Pampanga has the most number of affected households in the region with 221,769 households.

In conducting the pre-assessment/validation of the affected families the DSWD FO III is recruiting and hiring  245 verifiers/encoders, 882 enumerators and 58 are supervisors. The NHTU has asked the assistance of the LSWDOs in identifying the potential applicants for the said positions.

The trainings and orientation of these encoders, enumerators, area supervisors and area coordinators will be conducted on the third week of January.

“Your support is really manifested and heart-warming,” said Gracia Zablan, FO III NHTU focal person as she thanked the LSWDOs who pledged their full support for the success of the project. #### AMD (SMS-NHTU)

Pantawid Pamilya recognizes beneficiaries’ suffrage rights

“We are empowering the women beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilya,” said DSWD Field Office III Regional Director Adelina S. Apostol.

According to her, the program offers a lot of opportunities for women beneficiaries to realize their true worth. They had been given responsibility to comply with program imposed conditions and manage cash grants received through compliance. They experience leadership as elected parent leaders of their respective groups. They undergo training and workshops to develop their skills and eventually increase their capabilities. Most of all, through their Pantawid Pamilya engagement, they become better wives and mothers.

The coming May 2013 elections call for voter’s education and information drives to transform the program beneficiaries into informed and mature electorate. These efforts are deemed to empower them as legitimate members of our society. The same efforts are being established to have the beneficiaries realize their right to suffrage.

The human capital investment realized through Pantawid Pamilya includes the rights of children beneficiaries to education and health. Early in the engagement of beneficiaries to the program, the rights of their children to have a name and a family were checked.

The right to suffrage of the beneficiaries will be given special attention this year. DSWD FO III and its partner agencies in implementing Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program in Region III are ready to empower program beneficiaries through voter’s education and information drives.

DSWD is launching a national campaign to transform program beneficiaries into informed voters.

Voter’s education will be integrated in Family Development Sessions. There will also be educational posters and tarpaulins that will be placed in the immediate surroundings of the beneficiaries.

“It is critical for our beneficiaries to become an informed electorate,” said Apostol. They need to realize that the act of casting a vote is a human right. They need to realize that they must exercise their right to suffrage as a Filipino citizen. They need to realize that their votes determine the course of our country. Therefore, they need to realize that they need to cast a conscience vote that is free from ignorance and anything that feed on fear.

“The efforts to bring voter’s education to our beneficiaries are part of the Millennium Development Goal of empowering women. The same goal was adopted by Pantawid Pamilya and the same will be realized, not only for the women beneficiaries but also men, through our voter’s education,” Apostol concluded. #### DMG (SMU-Pantawid Pamilya)

DSWD, Texas Instrument Launch Angat Bata Program

City of San Fernando, Pampanga – The Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office III (DSWD FO III) in partnership with Texas Instrument recently launched the Angat Bata Program at the DSWD FO III in this city.

The beneficiaries are the children from Haven Pampanga and Reception and Study Center for Children (RSCC). Angat Bata Program, a project of Texas Instrument, aims to identify and support the children under the custody of DSWD Field Office III by providing them an avenue for self-advancement through proper education and sports activities.

Texas Instruments will provide financial incentives through a monthly stipend which will be placed under the trust fund account of the DSWD FO III center or institution where the child is currently placed under custody primarily to support the Angat Bata beneficiaries who achieve excellent performance in their academic or sports undertakings. On the other hand, DSWD acts as the custodian of child-beneficiaries in accordance with existing applicable laws and policies.

The Program will support 14 beneficiaries from Haven Pampanga, a DSWD residential facility for women and children in especially difficult circumstances and 18 children from RSCC, facility for the abandoned, neglected and orphaned children. Each beneficiary will receive educational assistance fund.

In her opening remarks, DSWD Regional Director Adelina Apostol encouraged the children to dream bigger dreams and do something about them. She told them that dreaming is not bad as long as you do something to achieve them.

The Angat bata beneficiaries showed their talents though various dance numbers and a song number. The audience was amazed and glad with these presented talents.

The program ended with a response from Amerin Silva, one of the beneficiaries from Haven Pampanga. She thanked the people behind the Angat Bata Program. She, in behalf of other beneficiaries, promised to study hard. She also said that they will not waste the opportunity to study that was given to them.

The event was graced by Director Yunas Mohammad and Kristine Mangalias, Human Resource Manager from Texas Instrument. DSWD’s Assistant Regional Director Maura Dela Rosa and Maribel Blanco, Chief, Management Division also witnessed the event. #### (Social Marketing Unit)
