‘DSWD-CORDILLERA ROSE ABOVE CHALLENGES’ –SEC. SOLIMAN


Published By: HELEN R. TIBALDO | Date: January 7,, 2012 | Comments: 0

BAGUIO CITY-- Department of Social Welfare and Development(DSWD) Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman commended the DSWD-Cordillera personnel Wednesday saying the regional office has ‘risen above challenges’ brought by recent internal movements and operational difficulties in 2011.

The Secretary made the statement during her yearend meeting with field workers of the DSWD Convergence Strategy in the city.

“I acknowledge and commend everyone for a job well done. We have demonstrated our capacity (to implement) in 2011,” the Secretary said.
Soliman highlighted the challenges brought by the expansion of the flagship conditional cash transfer program of the agency which has covered over 25,000 households in the region this year.

The Secretary also thanked the DSWD-CAR workforce for working hand-in-hand with the new regional and assistant regional directors after movements of leadership within the organization.

Meanwhile, Soliman also shared the accomplishments of the DSWD in ‘introducing new programs’ such as the Social Pension Program for Indigent Senior Citizens, the Supplementary Feeding Program for Day Care Children, and the Rice Subsidy for Farmers and Fisher folks in the form of cash-for-work activities.

For 2012, the Secretary bared the directions that are focused on poverty-reduction and disaster risk reduction.

The DSWD Convergence Strategy, a three-program approach to reduce poverty among the 5.2 million poor households in the country, will expand to another 17 municipalities in the Cordillera next year. For 2011, it has covered 24 municipalities and Baguio City.

One of the three convergence programs, the Pantawid Pamilya, will cover all municipalities and cities of the Cordillera region by 2012.

Further, Soliman said there is an urgent need to prepare for the effects of climate change especially in the Cordillera.

She said there is a need to map out the most vulnerable areas and create proactive community programs on disaster risk reduction such as cash-for-work activities. She also directed DSWD Regional Director Leo Reynoso to coordinate such programs with the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.

The Secretary also said the agency will be implementing next year its own PAMANA program for conflict affected communities. The program will be lodged through one of DSWD’s convergence programs, the KALAHI-CIDSS Project or community-driven development.

She also noted that the DSWD is helping the government in its talks with the Cordillera People’s Liberation Army (CPLA) particularly on the provision of livelihood projects for its members. The Secretary added it supports the region in its pursuit of real autonomy.

In ending, Soliman encouraged the staff to sustain their commitment and passion in serving the people. She emphasized the role of the workers in empowering the beneficiaries and gave the 2012 ‘mantra’ to the DSWD workforce, that is, “to communicate, coordinate, and collaborate.”( DSWD-CAR)
