KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP nets awards in recent DSWD Scorecard Summit

Mandaluyong City – Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services-National Community-Driven Development Program (KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP), one of the major poverty alleviation programs of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) recently hit big during the Agency’s 1st Scorecard Summit, held on November 25-27 in this city.

The Scorecard Summit is an annual event that is intended to serve as an avenue to recognize and exchange good and innovative ideas and practices, particularly in strategy execution to help the DSWD achieve its strategic goals: to improve the well-being of 2.3 million families covered by Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, the conditional cash transfer program of the Agency; to increase the number of Listahanan-identified poor families covered by at least two social welfare and development programs and services from 3.9 to 5.2 million by 2016; and, to increase the number of cities and municipalities having a fully-functioning local social welfare and development office to 40 provinces by 2016.

All three entries of KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP gained a spot in the Scorecard Summit.

The program’s “e-RFR na iyan!” presentation was awarded first place under “Fresh Tweaks”, a category which refers to “proposed ideas that have not yet been tested but found to be logical and practical”.

The presentation “e-RFR na iyan!” pertains to the electronic Request for Funds Release (e-RFR) system that KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP will utilize to enable an error-free and faster release of funds at the community level for their sub-project implementation.

As a community-driven development program, KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP puts power back in the hands of the people by allowing them to identify and implement sub-projects they need to address their community’s most pressing needs, as well as manage the funds they will be utilizing to implement the said sub-project.

The e-RFR will not only hasten the process of funds release to communities, it will also prevent the co-mingling of funds, as the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank, the fund sources of the program, prohibit this.

The two other presentations from KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP were “ICEDROP Kayo Diyan!”, which was awarded 2nd place under Fresh Tweaks, and “Disaster response does not mean disastrous response”, which garnered 3rd place under the Good Practices category.

The former refers to Intervening Crisis and Emergency Disaster Response Operations Procedures (ICEDROP), the system KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP developed so that it can implement faster and respond more effectively to the needs of ‘Yolanda’-affected municipalities.

KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP was identified as one of the post-disaster recovery and rehabilitation programs following ‘Yolanda’, said to be the strongest disaster to hit the world. Out of its 847 target communities, 554 were affected by the typhoon.

The latter entry is also ‘Yolanda’-related, being a presentation that showed the coordination work that the KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP used in serving as one of the response teams in Eastern Visayas following the typhoon.

The second place for Fresh Tweaks went to the Human Resource Development Bureau’s entry on the Build and Recognize the Achievement and Value the Excellence (BRAVE) Awards, which proposes the recognition of the efforts made by Memorandum of Agreement workers of the DSWD.

KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP National Program Manager Chi Redaja thanked the Office of Strategy Management (OSM), which spearheaded the activity, for recognizing the innovations made by the program.

“These will serve as an inspiration for us to continue to develop more innovations in KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP”, she said.
Meanwhile, the 1st place for Good Practices goes to DSWD Field Office from the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) for their Social Pension for Indigent Senior Citizens-Information System (SPIC-IS), which ensures the efficiency in the delivery of the social pension stipend received by senior citizens through DSWD.

Second place went to DSWD Field Office III for its Family Scorecard (FSC), a case management tool designed to help survival-level Pantawid Pamilya families, classified as the poorest of the poor, identify the areas that they need to develop to improve the status of their household.

Tied with KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP on 3rd place for the Good Practices category is the “Barangay Action Committee” entry of DSWD Regional Office II, which refers to the partnership of DSWD with barangay officials to improve the compliance rate of Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries within the region.

Each entry was presented and defended before a panel of judges, which was composed of DSWD Assistant Secretary Javier Jimenez, Institute for Solidarity in Asia (ISA) Executive Director Christian Zaens, and National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) Supervising Economic Development Specialist April Mendoza.

Mendoza congratulated the presenters on their presentations, saying that the innovations will contribute to improving service delivery to the clients of the DSWD. ###

Left photo shows the Secretary and Sustainable Livelihood Program Director Georgina Ann Hernandez pose with the Pantawid Pamilya women-beneficiaries from Marikina who won in the Paligsayahan talent contest.

Citing the active participation of partner-beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program in the ‘PaskuJuan Bazaar 2014: Salu-Salo sa Pagbabago’ over the weekend, at the Araneta Center, Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman said that the poor can actually become instrumental of their own development.

This was evident when these families joined the first nationwide bazaar where they sold the products which they produced using the capital assistance provided by DSWD through the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP).

SLP is a community-based capacity building program that seeks to improve the socio-economic status of beneficiaries.  It is implemented through the Community-Driven Enterprise Development (CDED) approach, which engages beneficiaries to actively contribute to production and labor markets by making use of available resources and accessible markets.

The program aims to enable the beneficiaries to manage sustainable micro-enterprises or link them to locally available jobs that will enhance their access to basic social services and improve their standard of living.

Gloria Humiwat, 41, a beneficiary of Pantawid Pamilya for two years now, from Loakan, Baguio City said, “Laking pasasalamat ko sa DSWD dahil dito sa bazaar na ito nabigyan kami ng pagkakataon na maibenta ang aming mga produkto. Sana po meron ulit ganito sa susunod na taon at sana ay mas mahaba ang araw (We thank the DSWD for this bazaar because it gave us the opportunity to sell our products. We hope that this will be conducted again next year and hopefully, too, that it will be longer).”

Evelyn Cafon, 39, from Lambahak, Lake Sebu, South Cotabato, shared, “Magmula noong naging benepisaryo kami ng Pantawid Pamilya noong 2011 hanggang naging SLP beneficiaries kami, hindi namin naramdaman na pinabayaan kami ng DSWD. Ngayon, tumutulong pa rin sila at dahil sa bazaar na ito ay malaking tulong at oportunidad na dumami ang aming customer (Since we became beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilya in 2011 and eventually SLP, DSWD has not stopped helping us. With this bazaar, we had the chance to expand our market).”

In her message during the program,  Sec. Soliman said, “Ang presensiya ng mga benepisyaryo dito ngayon ay patunay na  sila ay hindi lamang umaasa sa binibigay ng gobyerno kundi sila mismo ay nagsisikap iangat ang kanilang buhay mula sa kaunting tulong na naibigay ng gobyerno (The presence of the partner-beneficiaries here is proof that they are not dependent on government aid alone but they exert their best effort to improve their lives).”

Sec. Soliman added that the goal of the bazaar was to help  Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries who are also SLP  beneficiaries market their products.

Sec. Soliman and DSWD development partners led shoppers in patronizing the products of the beneficiaries.

One of the highlights the festival was the talent competition of Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries.

In her closing message, SLP Director Georgina Ann H. Hernandez said that with the success of the activity, DSWD intends to hold a yearly bazaar to provide a permanent venue to market the products of the beneficiaries. The PaskuJuan Bazaar was held simultaneously in various venues nationwide.

For all those interested to buy the products and help the beneficiaries achieve self-sufficiency, they may coordinate with the SLP office at (02) 951-2806 or send an email to slp_group@dswd.gov. ph. ###

The road towards mutually inclusive growth: DSWD’s Sustainable Livelihood Program

The rally to work towards mutually inclusive sustainable growth continues as the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) underscores how strategic partnerships between businesses and underprivileged communities promote mutually inclusive growth through its Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP).

Today, November 28, through a national public forum  entitled “Bangon Kabuhayan: Philippine Businesses for Inclusive Growth through Harnessing Sustainable Livelihoods”, DSWD will seek to put the spotlight on the goals, opportunities, and practices between SLP and its partners.

SLP began in 2011 and it designs its projects to mainly increase the communities’ sense of dignity, yield long-term results for all actively participating stakeholders, and maintain consistence with both communities and partner establishments. SLP, however, prioritizes participants who are underprivileged, which are legitimately identified by the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR).

According to DSWD Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman, the main objectives of SLP are providing sufficient and sustainable source of income, giving equal opportunity to gain resources for their needs and skills, and to help people recognize and understand the “new normal”.

  “Given that DSWD’s pledge at large is geared towards providing capabilities-building and developing strategic and sustainable partnerships, we recognized that there is a need to educate people how times have changed nowadays,” says Secretary Soliman.

 “Natural disasters come and go—that’s the new normal. Therefore, we need to be resilient, pro-active, and of course, resourceful to gain back our footing,” she adds.

SLP Director Georgina Ann Hernandez likewise shares that cash assistance, cash grant, and rehabilitation assistance are given to those who will be affected by disasters.

Just last year, when Typhoon Yolanda struck, SLP and its partners worked on assisting the families who were affected by the disaster.

Because of its commitment to seeding sustainable prosperity, SLP trains the communities to contribute to production and labor markets by utilizing available resources and accessible market. Through the Community-Driven Enterprise Development (CDED) approach, they are given the option to take either a Micro-Enterprise Development Track or an Employment Facilitation Track. Both programs also provide social preparedness, furthered skills training, and ultimately, sustainable sources of income.

“The income-generating programs inside SLP are designed to create products that consumers have a natural or constant demand for. We also make sure that the communities are independent enough and the corporate social integration programs are holistic and impactful,” Dir. Hernandez explains.

She adds that these programs wouldn’t be holistic without partnering with different institutions.

“That’s why we tap other institutions to help us make integrated training programs from a different point of view. This can help enhance the skills of the communities, to expand their opportunities, and to teach them trust their own capabilities,” she says.

Seeding economic prosperity is a major facet in all these efforts. But given a closer look, what SLP really does is it hones individuals to be independent, proud of what they do, and it believes their actions benefit the community at large. This applies not only to the adopted communities, but also to the different internal and external stakeholders that took part in the program and know they have made a sustainable contribution to the society. ###
