Be part of local development, DSWD urges Filipinos

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) urges Filipinos to join local development activities within their communities so they can become active participants in nation building.

“By participating in these activities that are critical to the development of their own communities, ordinary citizens can be heroes in their own way,” said DSWD Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman.

This was said in reference to the “bayanI Ka!” Awards of the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS), one of the Department’s biggest poverty alleviation programs.

Kalahi-CIDSS uses the community-driven development (CDD) strategy, an approach that engages citizens in local development so that they themselves will be the ones to determine and implement what interventions they need that will help their communities respond to issues affecting their poverty situation.

By engaging citizens as volunteers and local government units, national government agencies, civil society organizations, and other relevant groups as partners, Kalahi-CIDSS ensures that every member of the community has a personal stake in development and should play roles to promote this.

The “bayanI Ka!” Awards are intended to recognize citizens, local government units at the provincial, municipal, and barangay levels, and program staff in their involvement in nation building, within their capacity, through their participation in Kalahi-CIDSS, which was scaled up into a national community-driven development program in 2013.

Winners of the “bayanI Ka!” awards come from varying backgrounds, such as Catherine Asi, a Muslim woman from Lanao del Norte who was instrumental in helping resolve peace issues between Christians and Muslims in the town of Kauswagan, and Surigao del Sur Governor Johnny Pimentel, who provides continuous support and encouragement for the mayors within his province to implement Kalahi-CIDSS because he believes in the power of citizen involvement.

Through the “bayanI Ka!” Awards, DSWD hopes to show Filipinos that everyone, and not just those directly involved in development, can actively participate and perform critical roles in development, regardless of gender, age, cultural background, or profession. ###

DSWD celebrates Filipino resiliency, empowerment on its 64th anniversary

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) greets 2015 with renewed hope and enthusiasm as it celebrates its 64th founding anniversary on January 26-30 with the theme, “DSWD@64: Tuloy sa Pagbangon at Pag-unlad”.

The theme reflects how the Department continues to serve and encourage the disadvantaged and vulnerable to rise above adversities and achieve an improved quality of life.

“We dedicate our anniversary celebration to all our partner-beneficiaries who, with their resiliency, continue to create positive changes in their lives, and to our stakeholders and development partners who remain committed to help us perform our mandate,” DSWD Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman said.

She  assured that the  Department will continue its legacy of  “matapat, mabilis, mahusay at magiliw na paglilingkod  (honest, fast, efficient, and courteous service)” in the implementation of social protection and poverty reduction programs and projects.

Sec. Soliman added that the anniversary is a  timely occasion to thank the Department’s employees who have gone the extra mile to serve those in need.

Among the highlights of the celebration will be the Program on Awards and Incentives for Service Excellence (PRAISE) for outstanding DSWD employees, and Loyalty Awards, which recognizes officials and employees who have rendered 10-40 years of service.

Partners and stakeholders will also be recognized through the PaNaTa Ko Sa Bayan Awards.

The week-long anniversary celebration will kick-off with a flag-raising ceremony on January 26, to be followed by a Thanksgiving Mass, exhibit on DSWDs performance governance scoreboard and  strategic goals, sportsfest, games, and a DSWD Got Talent competition to be participated in by employees of the Department’s Central and 16 Field Offices.

Awarding for the various competitions will cap the celebration. ###

DSWD conducts anew investigation on alleged maltreatment at Manila LGU facility

Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman has sent anew a validating team to check the veracity of a report relayed by a GMA news reporter on alleged abuse and maltreatment of a 10-year-old boy-resident of the Manila Reception and Action Center (MRAC).

The news reporter submitted the transcription of her by-chance interview with the 10-year-old boy at the gate of the center. The boy claimed that he was being physically abused. However, it was not clear in the interview who was hurting him.

Last night, DSWD-NCR Field Office Director Alice Bonoan who led the validating team proceeded to the center to investigate the incident.

It was learned that the 10-year-old boy has already been re-integrated with his family in San Roque, Pandacan, Manila.

Dir, Bonoan said the she will send a social worker to conduct a validation visit to the child’s family in Pandacan, Manila to see and assess his condiion and that of the family.

“We are now transferring the children-residents to other DSWD-licensed NGOs and DSWD managed facilities,” Sec. Soliman said. Manila RAC will be temporarily closed to give the City Social Welfare and Development Office of the City of Manila the time and space to repair and rehabilitate the center as well as enhance their capacity to care for the children.

There are two children at the RAC who claim to be residents of Bahay Tuluyan in Quezon Province. DSWD is now facilitating their return to the center.

DSWD now hiring staff to do survey of poor families

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is in need of 47,644 field workers to implement the Listahanan 2nd nationwide assessment.

These comprise of 1,277 area coordinators, 6,383 area supervisors, 31,908 enumerators, 4,038 encoders and 4,038 verifiers, who will be tasked to collect information from 15.3 million households in 1,490 municipalities and 144 cities nationwide.

The Listahanan is an information management system that makes available to national government agencies, local government units, and other social protection stakeholders a comprehensive list of poor families in need of assistance.

The area coordinators will supervise and train area supervisors who are tasked to lead a team of enumerators.

The enumerators will conduct family interviews using the Family Assessment Form (FAF).

The FAF is a four-page questionnaire with 52 variables that are pertinent in determining a household’s welfare level. Encoders will input the data collected by the enumerators to the Listahanan database, while verifiers will check if the data entered are consistent and accurate.

Applications may be submitted via e-mail or delivered personally to the nearest DSWD Regional Office or at the Social Welfare and Development Team office in the province. Interested individuals are encouraged to check the DSWD Regional Office websites for details. The e-mail addresses of the different DSWD Regional Offices are:

FO CAR – focar@dswd.gov.ph
FO I – fo1@dswd.gov.ph
FO II – fo2@dswd.gov.ph
FO III -fo3@dswd.gov.ph
FO NCR – foncr@dswd.gov.ph
FO IV-A – fo4a@dswd.gov.ph
FO IV-B – fo4b@dswd.gov.ph
FO V- fo5@dswd.gov.ph
FO VI- fo6@dswd.gov.ph
FO VII – fo7@dswd.gov.ph
FO VIII – fo8@dswd.gov.ph
FO IX – fo9@dswd.gov.ph
FO X – fo10@dswd.gov.ph
FO XI – fo11@dswd.gov.ph
FO XII – fo12@dswd.gov.ph
FO CARAGA – focrg@dswd.gov.ph

Applicants will undergo a series of examinations and interviews to ensure that the most qualified individuals will be hired. Once hired, they will be given intensive training on their specific roles in the assessment. They will also be deployed in areas where they are not from to ensure objectivity in conducting the assessment.

“The qualifications for these jobs are tight. This is because we want to work with competent, dedicated and honest individuals who can assure us that the data they’ll collect will be of the highest quality, complete, and accurate,” DSWD Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman said.

Through this assessment, a new batch of poor and near-poor families will be identified and prioritized for appropriate programs and services. It will also enable the Department to track changes or developments in the lives of poor households who were identified in the previous assessment.

In 2009, the DSWD conducted the first nationwide assessment that resulted in the identification of 5.2 million poor households out of the 10.9 million assessed.

Three municipalities of Capiz yesterday received a total P695.7 million for the Emergency Shelter Assistance (ESA) for Typhoon Yolanda survivors.

Broken down, P477,600,000 was released for 15,920 families with totally damaged houses in Roxas City; P173,610,000 for  5,637 families with totally damaged houses and 450 families with partially damaged houses in Panay; and P43,570,000 for 4,457 families with partially damaged houses in Pontevedra.

The checks were turned over to the municipal treasurers with Capiz Governor Victor Tanco, Panay Mayor Dante Bermejo, and towns’ respective municipal and city social welfare and development officers witnessing the turnover.
