KALAHI-CIDSS field staff to strengthen coordination with LGU counterparts

The Area Coordinating Teams (ACTs) of DSWD KALAHI-CIDSS resolves to capacitate its counterparts in the local government unit called the Municipal Coordinating Team (MCT) to prepare for an LGU-led type community-driven development (CDD) program implementation.

In a three-day technical session for KALAHI-CIDSS NCDDP field staff, ACTs defined the delineation of function and task between ACT and MCT, as well as coordinative tasks it can do to enhance coaching to MCTs.

An MCT is a composite team formed by the municipal local government unit (MLGU) where a KALAHI-CIDSS program is being implemented. The MCT observes and assists the Area Coordinating Team (ACT) of the DSWD in implementing activities along the Community Empowerment Activity Cycle (CEAC)—a five-stage process where CDD principles are put to practice for a period of one year (one cycle).

The Regional Program Management Office reiterates the thrust of the program to embed CDD principles and processes in the local governance system, thereby ensuring that MCTs are equipped to take over the administration of the program and sub-project implementation after ACTs are pulled out after a year of implementation.

“Na focus na ta sa construction, disbursement, and process… wala nay promotion [of CDD]”, said RPMO Community Development Officer IV, Rogelio A. Alabado, pointing out the stark reality in the field and re-echoing the main objectives of the program which is CDD integration in the LGU system.

With the integration, CDD principles will influence the local planning and budgeting process of the LGU, resulting in improved local governance. It ensures that transparency, accountability, and community participation are installed leading to the efficient delivery of social services.

For 2021 first sem, KALAHI-CIDSS NCDDP has a target of eight municipalities. Six of which are in Bukidnon namely: Don Carlos, Damulog, Dangcagan, Kadingilan, Maramag, Kitaotao, and two municipalities in Lanao del Norte: Sapad and Salvador where COVID-19 related sub-projects will be implemented by local communities.

The technical session provided a venue for the field staff to recollect and share their experiences while being in the program as part of the reflection session activity. The RPMO is currently waiting for the guidelines from the National Program Management Office to be cascaded to its field staff for full swing CDD program implementation.

47 LGUs to support DSWD’s Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Program

DSWD Field Office X officers meet to discuss Gender and Development issues to which the implementation of Risk Resiliency Program for Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation (RRP-CCAM) was reviewed.

47 local government units in Northern Mindanao were reported to support the Risk Resiliency Program – Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation (RRP-CCAM) of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Field Office X who is an active advocate on strengthening community resiliency on climate change.

Under RRP-CCAM, local government units will be targeting and mobilizing communities to engage in projects related to climate change adaptation and mitigation, and in exchange, receive cash for work incentives from the DSWD Field Office X.

Each qualified family mobilized to work for 10 consecutive days in RRP-CCAM projects, which are proposed by the LGUs, will receive an amount of P2,740.00 for the work rendered.

The DSWD Field Office X believes that this program is like hitting two birds with one stone: communities are taught and strengthened to be resilient in risks brought about by climate change, and poor families are given opportunities to short-term work.

The DSWD Field Office X continues to solidify its partnership with local government units who are considered as the first responders in addressing the needs of their communities and constituents. The Field Office also commits to be available for the LGUs should they need immediate augmentation from the national government.

SLP as Part of Recipe for a Better Tomorrow

Perlita profited from her gained skills in managing an eatery right within their home.

Perlita Cahatol and her family of seven were coping with the demands of living in Cagayan de Oro City until they were challenged with bigger trials starting with her husband’s accident.

This forced the family to migrate to Kibawe, Bukidnon in hopes to have a better quality of life. The house they built were made of upcycled materials which is not protective of enough against weatherly elements as they now depend on their income as farmers.

Life is hard enough as it is but Perlita finds herself pregnant with their sixth child. The birth of the baby was also the day her husband got into another accident that left him permanently disabled from walking.

All of the Cahatol children are achieving in their own field of talents and skills.

It was dark times for the family in coping with her husband’s accident that Perlita thought of giving up the baby for adoption. With her husband’s consent, the baby was turned over to a family who can best provide the developmental needs of the child. A hard decision to make but it was the best interest for the child that Perlita wants for her baby.

She set her focus on caring for his now-PWD husband and growing children who are also in need of her. Through fervent prayers for mercy and salvation that Perlita finds comfort to allay her worries and guilt. Little did she know that things are about to turn around for her.

As a 4Ps beneficiary, Perlita joined the Cookery NCII Skills Training by DSWD through the Sustainable Livelihood Program. The gained skills opened new opportunities for her as she opened her own eatery after completing the course.

Six years on, the business has grown and the family is living comfortably as she hoped. All children are doing good at school as scholars. They have been in close communication with their youngest who is living with his adoptive family and is migrating with them to another country soon.

From dried fish and shrimp paste as staple meals to affording healthy meals; light materials to concrete and tiled home; from living on a day-to-day basis to having savings, things are indeed looking up for Perlita.

For Perlita, SLP paved the way to a brighter future and cannot be more grateful for how her life turned out despite the many heavy trials she had to overcome including the health pandemic.

Hope Blooms Amidst Pandemic

Karynn invites Plantitas/titos to visit her plant store at Brgy. Crossing, Libona, Bukidnon.

Flowers bloom at a certain time then it wilts. But as long as it is firmly rooted on the ground, it will bloom again – a metaphor of Karynn Gupit’s life, a 33-year-old mother of three from Brgy. Crossing, Libona, Bukidnon.

She has experienced many of ups and downs in her existence but continues to bloom despite these challenges. Karynn’s family was one of the many Filipino families whose source of household income were affected with the lockdown brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Monitoring of the assigned worker is as important to ensure that Karynn’s business will continue to flourish.

Her husband Eldie used to work as a security guard in a food processing plant in Balubal, Cagayan de Oro City until the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) took effect.

The company went into recession and was bankrupt, leaving its workers the disadvantage to untimely end its contract, including Eldie. It was a hard time for the family to cope with such loss since they had no other source of income.

This urged Karynn to venture in opening small businesses – jumping from one business to another, just to have food on their table. It was until she engaged into selling house plants and flowers which became a popular trend for people staying indoors during the community quarantine. She rode with the tide of this whole “Plantita/tito” craze and took it to her advantage.

Gardening has been a source of refuge for Karynn which has now become the family’s bread and butter.

As one of the 82 Livelihood Assistance Grant (LAG) beneficiaries in Libona, Bukidnon, the amount received helped her family jump-start their plant business. From earning Php 300.00 – 700.00 a month, now she earns as much as Php3,000.00 in 2 weeks because of the opportunity given by DSWD.

She offers wide variety of plants to her customers which gave her an advantage against competitors. Gardening has been a way of releasing all the stresses for Karynn which is now what also feeds her family.

Through faith and prayers, she is all set for life’s cycle of growing and blooming.

KC PAMANA IPCDD ramps up strategies to hit goals in 2021

A two-and-a-half-day technical session attended by DSWD KALAHI-CIDSS PAMANA IP-CDD workers have set the organization in motion to hit operational goals this year.

Seven Area Coordinating Teams (ACTs) together with higher ups from the Regional Program Management Office (RPMO) convened for a technical session to address the issues and concerns affecting the ACTs’ efficiency and performance. The RPMO is targeting a 100% completion for all ongoing and ‘to be implemented’ sub-projects (SPs) this year.

The KALAHI-CIDSS Payapa at Masaganang Pamayanan Indigenous People Community-Driven Development (IP-CDD) delivers sub-projects or small-scale infrastructures to communities with Indigenous Peoples (IPs), facilitating socio-economic development and peace promotion to conflict-affected and vulnerable areas.

ACTs under the program follow a stringent timeline in facilitating the completion of sub-projects, putting a great deal of pressure among workers to hit financial and engineering targets, alongside leading community empowerment activities.

“ACTs need to ensure the quality of RFRs (Request for Fund Release) submitted to the RPMO,” said Ms Genevie Adem, Supervising Administrative Officer (Finance). Starting this year, RFRs will now be regionally managed, expecting a faster and more efficient downloading of community grants. ACTs are directed to be more keen in preparing all documentary requirements to fast-track RFR approvals.

From time to time, ACTs are reminded to be strategic in its negotiations especially in the procurement process to ensure timely sub-project implementation.

“We need to be ahead in our financial and physical completion, three months at least, so we can take time to document our best practices and write our success stories,” said Engineer Abobacar Tocalo, Project Development Officer IV

The RPMO also announced that it will resume its monthly ranking system for ACTs and the giving of incentives as a strategy to spur better team performance.

Spillover sub-projects in 2021 have a target completion by the second week of April this year. The program has 20 ongoing SPs with an additional 11 SPs in new areas to be implemented and completed within the year.

Top SPs funded include Tribal Halls, Pre and Post-Harvest facilities, Livelihood Centers, and Access Roads. Being community-driven, the sub-projects are locally defined and community-led, responding to their most pressing needs.

PAMANA IP-CDD is serving Indigenous Cultural Communities (ICCs) within Region 10 belonging to tribes of the Manobo-Matigsalug, Higaunon, and Subanen.

For Perlita, SLP paved the way to a brighter future and cannot be more grateful for how her life turned out despite the many trials she had to overcome.
