Brgy. Lapasan, Puntod Benefit From Kalahi-CIDSS Urban Pilot Implementation

Cagayan de Oro – In the pursuit of addressing problems of poverty in the country, the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan – Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services, a Community-Driven Development Program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development, has taken steps in fronting poverty at the Urban jungle with the implementation of the Kalahi-CIDSS Urban Project; The Pilot project implemented in four (4) key highly urbanized cities in the country.

It is fortunate enough Cagayan de Oro was among the first to implement the said project; a good venue to address the impending needs of poor and marginalized communities I the city. The Kalahi-CIDSS has been implemented in the region for 10 years now, but this is the first time that the program is implemented in an Urban setting; a challenge the Regional Project Management Office gallantly accepted.

Packets of poor communities in the city (communities with at least 300 poor families) was been validated in the area, results of which were submitted to the National Project Management Office (NPMO) for finality of areas to be covered. Barangay Lapasan and Barangay Puntod were fortunate enough to have qualified and be recipients of the said pilot implementation.

Since it was a Pilot Implementation, several modifications were done to the Community Empowerment Activity Cycle (activities composing the project implementation), to fit the requirements of Community-Driven Development strategy. But with all the modifications, principles of the Kalahi-CIDSS Program were ensured to empower poor communities. It was still the communities who were consulted on what sub-project would address their most pressing needs, and the principle of inclusivity is still followed; everyone in the community is consulted on the decision making for the project.

Both Barangays ended up proposing Livelihood Projects – a result of their participatory decision making. Several skills trainings and enterprise development were implemented and funded through the project. 118 individuals availed of the several trainings and livelihood grants from Barangay Lapasan, and 103 from Barangay Puntod.

A multi-stakeholder approach was utilized to ensure sustainability of the project. Barangay Local Government Units shouldered Local Cash Counterparts to accommodate expenditures for the project, while partner National Agencies, such as Department of Labor and Employment and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) aided in the trainings and job placement of beneficiaries.

Several service providers, including the Academe (Capitol University) were tapped to provide different vocational skills training, such as Pharmacy Servicing, Motor Repair, Shielded Metal Arc Building, Enterprise Development, House Keeping, Janitorial Services and Community Based Livelihood, Dress Making and Rug Making.

National Competency 2 exams were also provided by TESDA to ensure competency of trainees in the different Vocational Technical Trainings, while partnership with DOLE will ensure placement of beneficiaries for job opportunities here and abroad.

Through the Kalahi-CIDSS Urban Project, families in these communities are now ready to address insufficiencies in their daily lives brought about by poverty with the opportunities of livelihood and employment available through the project. In no time, poverty alleviation will be within reached not only in rural communities, but also in urban communities.

Prepared and Equipped for Climate Change

The community used to rely on their pathway, made up of inferior bamboo and wooden materials, to get around and about the neighborhood at Barangay Darumawang, Lala, Lanao del Norte. It was a challenge for the community, who, while treading the narrow pathways, deal with the dangers of falling on to the muddy waters below because of the integrity of the materials used for the pathway.

The community, situated between the coast of Panguil Bay and waterways comprising the rich fishing grounds of the Municipality of Lala, thrives on fishing as their main source of livelihood; a reason enough for the community to adapt to their environment, no matter how perilous and hard it is living in a barangay surrounded by water.

Lala is considered to be one of the region’s top sources of seafood products (crabs, shrimps, bangus, etc.) – a blessing the people of Lala associate to the richness of their waters. For the majority of coastal communities and barangays located in and around rivers and fish pens, living near their source of livelihood is necessary, as to protect their fish cages and be as near as possible to the river’s mouth connecting to the Panguil Bay, the area most likely to be rich in marine life.

Fermin P. Buray, Barangay Chairman of Darumawang, Lala, Lanao del Norte shares the challenges people of Brgy. Darumawang face every day. “Ang among pagpuyo dinhi tubag kini sa kalisod. Kasagara sa among mga ka-barangay gikan sa mga pamilya nga nabuhi sa pagpanagat. Sila usab, mao may namat-an, mao pud ilang gisudlan nga panginabuhian”, Chairman Buray shares. (Poverty is the reason why we live in this condition. Majority of the residents here come from fishing families. Since it is the life they have been raised to, they themselves take the craft of fishing as their livelihood.)

The people of Darumawang do not have qualms on their living conditions. They say that it is their own choice to live in their community, all because they still believe that being in Darumawang is better than migrating to another barangay where they will then adjust to living conditions – adjusting to another environment for their livelihood.

“Wala kami problema sa abot sa panginabuhian dinhi sa among barangay. Ug walay sud-an, mangisda lang mi sa among palibot. Lisod na ug mamalhin kami kay kasagara area sa uban barangay aduna nay nanag-iya sa mga fish pond – aduna nay naka-angkon sa mga nindot nga plastar nga pwede panagatan,” Chairman Buray adds. (We do not have any problems in terms of our livelihood here in our barangay. You could just fish anywhere if you do not have viand for the day. It would be hard if we move to another place because most barangays are already occupied by other fishermen. Fish ponds and strategic fishing grounds are already owned by other fisher folks.)

Danger is part of the everyday lives for the people of Darumawang. Every step they took was a risk they take against chance. They stopped counting how many people have taken the 6 feet or so plunge to the waters below since incidents are too many to count already. But the narrow wooden pathways post a serious threat to the younger children in their community. Kids have smaller feet, too small that it gets stuck between planks, causing kids to fall on the water below.

The community also have problems with unpredictable sea-level rise, a common problem brought about by climate change. Add to that surging, strong waves brought that shake and wobble the elevated footpath, one could only imagine how hard the conditions the community face.

“Ang lisod lang gayud kay delikado na ang among agianan kay kawayan ug kahoy lang baya among latayanan. Tubig ang ilalum sa among mga balay mao kinahanglan taas among panimalay ug ang mga agianan. Sa panahon nga mosulod ang mga bata sa skwelahan, maluoy mi kay maglisod sila ug latay sa agianan labi na sayo sa buntag nga daghan sila magka-tabo sa gamay nga agianan. Daghan na pud bata nga nahulog diha sa tubig,” Buray said. (The only downside of living in our barangay is the walkways around the community. It is made up of Bamboos and wood planks, and we have to live with it since we do have water all over the place, under our homes, so we have to elevate our houses and our walkways. During school days, our children have a hard time traversing the walkways especially early morning when a lot of people are using the narrow footpaths. There are already a lot of kids who have fallen into the waters below.)

If only a solution was possible to address the problems of Barangay Darumawang. If only there was a way to ensure safety for all the people of Darumawang.

The solution came through a Community-Driven Development Program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development, the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan – Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS). Through the Anti-Poverty Program, sub-projects that would address the most pressing problems identified by the community (through a barangay assembly), will be funded and implemented by the community.

Marlito C. Canton, Barangay Sub-Project Management Team – Chair, knew then and there during the Municipal Orientation of the said program that this was the solution to their problem. During the 2012-2013 Kalahi-CIDSS Cycle, the community left nothing to chance as they were all active in participating in the activities comprising the Community Empowerment Activity Cycle (CEAC).

“Nakita namo nga dakong tabang ning maong programa sa kalisod sa among barangay mao nga kaming tanan mi-suporta sa mga aktibidades sa Kalahi. Walay pagduha-duha, ang among lataayanan mao ang napili nga maoy among sulbaron pinaagi sa PSA (Participatory Situational Analysis). Wala gayud kami nagdahum nga maapil mi sa ma-priority para makakuha ug pundo. Mao nga adtong nag implement na mi sa pag-himo sa sementado nga footpath, tanan gyud ang nitabang,” Mr. Canton said. (We saw the huge opportunity the program had in solving the problems of the community that was why all of us supported all activities of Kalahi. There was no doubt the pathway was the major problem in our barangay that is why it was ranked first during the conduct of the PSA. We never thought we would be prioritized for funding, that is why during the implementation, all of us helped in working on the cemented footpath in our barangay.)

Barangay Darumawang was able to complete 556.4 linear meters of concrete elevated footpath, 4 feet elevation from the ground and water below and, 1.3 meters wide, inter-connecting homes, establishments and institutions around the community. This was a feat achieved by the community. The community stood as one in solving their most pressing problem, ensuring safety for everyone.

With the sub-project, safety issues, and the lurking challenges of climate change will be addressed. The sub-project, an adaptation of sorts to secure the people in the community, was a success brought about by the community’s resilience to the challenges of life.

“Kami nga mga pamilya nga nabuhi sa gasa sa kadagatan, lisod mobiya ining gigikanan sa among panginabuhian. Ug wala miabot ang Kalahi-CIDSS sa among barangay, moabot ang panahon nga maghinay-hinay ug kahurot ning mga lumulupyo aning among barangay kay dili na maantos ang kalisod sa among pagpuyo, labi na karon nga dili na masabot ang kondisyon sa kadagatan ug sa panahon. Apan salamt sa Kalahi, nahatagan kami ug bag-ong paglaom nga makapuyo nga prodaktibo ining among barangay,” Mr. Canton gladly said. (Our families have lived enjoying the gifts of the sea. It is hard for us to just leave our source of livelihood. Without the help of Kalahi, some of us would one by one leave our barangay because of the hardships we face due to the conditions of our situation, especially now that the seas are unpredictable and the weather conditions are erratic. Thanks to Kalahi we are given a new hope to live productively in our barangay.)

All systems go for Social Pension Validation

All set and ready to go – Team 2 of Lanao Del Norte headed by Ms. Maylyne L. Factor (Area Supervisor) recently conducted a courtesy call and orientation with the Local Government officials of the municipality of Poona Piagapo, Lanao del Norte . This is part of the protocol that field staff of the Department of Social Welfare and Development does when deployed in the field.
During the said courtesy call, Mayor Farhana Palawan along with the 26 Barangay Chairmen and representatives, were very much receptive of the team’s presence and the conduct of the validation as a whole. They pledged to support the team in whatever way they can to make the validation successful.
The team , along with Ms. Factor is composed of Mr. Al-Nor Limpao, Laisandra Macarimbang, Rocky Jane Metuda, Sarah Taping, and Candelario Patalinghug is one of the seven teams deployed in the five provinces of Region 10 who will be conducting the validation for Social Pension.
In region 10, a total of 15, 392 indigent Senior citizens have availed and enjoyed the P500.00 monthly stipend since 2011. Unfortunately, after a cross matching by the National Household Targeting Unit and the Social pension Unit, it was found out that only 4,068 of the social pensioners were found in the Listahanan or the the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR) database. Thus, the need to validate the 11,324 indigent social pensioners.
Listahanan or the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR) is an information management system that the government uses in identifying who and where the poor are and is being spearheaded by the Department of Social Welfare and Development. It aims to address poverty reduction through a scientific and target- focused strategy.
A total of 66 field workers comprising 47 enumerators, 9 encoders, and 10 Area Supervisors were hired for the said validation.
To date, the Area Supervisors have already conducted the Barangay Community Characteristics as the enumerators are preparing for the actual validation.

Cagayan de Oro City – Four Provinces, seventeen Municipalities were represented during the conduct of the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services – National Community-Driven Development Program (Kalahi CIDSS – NCDDP) during the conduct of the Kalahi CIDSS – NCDDP Orientation last May 15, 2014, at Pearlmont Inn Hotel, Limketkai Drive, this city.

Present during the Orientation Forum were representatives from the Provincial Local Government Units of Misamis Occidental, Lanao del Norte, Camiguin and Bukidnon, while Municipal Local Government Unit delegations were represented by no less than the Municipal Mayors, Municipal Social Welfare Officers, Municipal Planning and Development Officers and Municipal Local Government Operations Officers.

Assistant Regional Director for Operations, Madam Aldersey M. Dela Cruz delivered the opening speech (in behalf of Regional Director, Atty. Araceli F. Solamillo) which focused on the importance of a unified approach in the fight against poverty, with all stakeholders committed on acting upon the necessary steps critical in achieving the goal, which is poverty alleviation. Director Dela Cruz posted the challenge to all participants, to be at par with the department’s pace in implementing the Kalahi CIDSS – NCDDP, especially in their respective provinces and municipalities.

Cicero Juan O. Aguilar, Deputy National Program Manager – Technical Support Services (Kalahi CIDSS – NCDDP) presented the overview/background of the program; covering CDD history, program implementation guidelines, grant allocation, roles of the PLGU/MLGU during the program implementation, and the sub-project brief. Program Enrollment and Program requirements were then presented by Ms. Maria Consuelo O.

Areas covered for the 2014 Kalahi CIDSS – NCDDP implementation comprise three modalities, Poor Municipalities, Poor-Yolanda Affected Municipalities, and Non Poor-Yolanda Affected Municipalities. Each modality vary in budget allocation grant/counterpart contribution and number of cycles to implement Kalahi CIDSS – NCDDP. For 2014, 21 municipalities from 4 provinces will engage in the Program, pending enrollment and requirements. 75 municipalities will be covered in 5 provinces within the 2014 – 2019 program implementation phase.

1,544 SEA-K Clients Served by DSWD – SLP for May

Cagayan de Oro – A total of 1,544 SEA-K clients/beneficiaries were provided livelihood assistance amounting to P 8,838,000.00 by the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) for the month of May.

The 1,544 recipients of the said livelihood assistance are Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4 P’s) beneficiaries from the provinces of Misamis Occidental and Lanao del Norte. The Sustainable Livelihood Program are extending livelihood programs to 4 P’s beneficiaries to aid in the transition of Pantawid families who will be graduating from the program once they complete the 5-year program coverage.

SLP is part of the core Anti-Poverty Programs of the department which utilizes the Convergence strategy. Through Convergence, the department is ensuring that poor families and individuals are provided 2 or more anti-poverty programs and/or social protection services that would improve their status in life.

SLP and the other anti-poverty programs of the department will try to improve the lives of poor families, alleviating their living status from Survival, to Subsistence, and finally, to Self-sufficiency.

The SLP will continue to serve poor and marginalized families and groups in Northern Mindanao with Livelihood Trainings and Capacity-Building Activities that will ensure sustainable income-generating employment or business.

Training of Field Staff for Modified Conditional Cash Transfer Validation conducted

Twenty seven field staff were trained in preparation for the conduct of the upcoming validation of the Modified Conditional Cash Transfer for Families in Need of Special Protection (MCCT-FNSP).
A total of 4,645 families have been receiving cash grants for the past year from the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program through the MCCT-FNSP.These families who were all Sendong survivors were assessed and chosen to be given the cash grants after the disaster but, were not officially listed in the Listahanan database. These beneficiaries are now in danger of having their stipends discontinued.The Commission of Audit has ruled out that payment of monthly stipends to those who are not in the Listahanan database shall be discontinued.With this, they need to be validated in order to assess if they are poor or non-poor before they are to be mainstreamed to the regular Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program.
The Listahanan or the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR) is the information management system that the government uses in identifying who and where the poor households are needing the various programs and services of the government and other major stakeholders. The database of Listahanan is being centrally managed by the Department of Social Welfare and Development.
Major programs of the Department which includes the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, Social Pension for indigent senior citizens, Sustainable Livelihood Program among others,identified their beneficiaries through the Listahanan database.
With the Listahanan data ,it is assured that those families needing the most are given priority in the delivery of social protection services not only from the Department of Social Welfare and Development but from other National Government Agencies and organizations as well.
Nineteen enumerators , 4 Area Supervisors , and 4 encoders underwent the said training who were oriented and briefed thoroughly on how to go about the validation which will run for fifteen days . Highlight of the training was the conduct of actual assessment using the new Family Assessment Forms (FAF) to Pantawid beneficiaries in one of the urban barangays of Cagayan de Oro City . The said training was facilitated by the staff from the Regional Listahanan Unit headed by Mr. Ian Putong,the Regional Field Coordinator.
Assistant Regional Director for Administration , Purita H. Santa, in her message , reminded the trainees to do their job well as the result of the validation would form part of the future and welfare of these families.
