City launches 18-day campaign to end “Violence vs. Women”
Posted by: Lito Dar/PIA | December 6,, 2009

BAGUIO CITY – The Save Our Women Foundation, in cooperation with the city’s Gender Equality and Development (GEAD) Council’s Inter-agency Committee on Violence against Women and Children (VAW-C) launched its own 18-day campaign in a Kapihan forum at the City Social Welfare and Development Office, Wednesday.

The 18-day campaign to end Violence Against Women and Children is observed nationwide from November 25 to December 12 by virtue of Presidential Proclamation 1172. This year’s theme is “Commit, Act, Demand: we can end Violence Against Women.”

Locally, the observance is centered on a “Pledge to never commit, condone, or remain silent about violence against women”.

In the said forum, City Social Welfare and Development Officer Betty Fangasan confirmed that reported cases of violence against women are increasing. She attributed this to the increasing awareness of women about their rights under the law.

In Baguio City alone, collated reports from the CSWDO, Baguio City Police Office Women & Children Protection Desk (BCPO-WCPD), Baguio General Hospital – Women & Children Protection Unit (BGH-WCPU) and Save Our Women Foundation, show that for the first three quarters of 2009 alone, there were already 493 VAW cases reported, compared to the 429 VAW cases reported for the whole of year of 2008.

Fangasan bared that majority of the cases were physical abuses, while other cases reported involved sexual abuse and economically abused women.

Patricia Gallardo, of Save Our Women Foundation, informed that as part of the launching activity, they have started a signature campaign along Session Road, for a pledge to never commit or condone violence against women, girls and children. They are also initiating the wearing of white ribbon as a sign against Domestic and Intimate Relationship Violence (DIV).

April Lippi Sudango of BGH-WCPU, Atty Debbie Dulay of the Public Attorney’s office, PO1 Grace Marron of the BCPO-WCPD and Marvin Gaddang of Save Our Women Foundation also shared their respective offices experiences and programs offered in relation to violence against women.

Tthe panelists enjoined all women to resolve to speak out against the abusive behavior of other men toward women, girls and children. There are existing laws that give them rights and protection, as well as government and private sector programs that could give them assistance in such endeavor, they said.

Posted by: Lito Dar/PIA | December 6,, 2009

Baguio City Panagbenga 2010The City Government of Baguio, in partnership with the Baguio Flower Festival Foundation Inc.

(BFFFI), launched the schedule of activities for the Panagbenga 2010 in a simple program Monday morning.

Panagbenga 2010, the 15th staging of the Baguio Flower Festival, adopts the theme: “Celebrating 15 years of Festival Excellence.”

In his message, Baguio Congressman Mauricio Domogan stressed that the “Panagbenga” should be included in the annals of the city’s centennial history.

According to Domogan, the whole of Baguio should be enjoined in celebrating such tourism activity as it is an opportunity for all, regardless of color, tribal group or religion, to work together in promoting the city and Cordillera’s cultural identity.

This is not only to sustain the city’s tourism industry, but also for the visitors and our own happiness as well, he said.

“It is also gives us the time to thank the Lord for giving us a beautiful environment, with all the trees and flowers. It is also a time to remind us of our own obligation to maintain and preserve such environment, so as to avoid the serious consequences of climate change,” Domogan added.
Confetti rained and balloons were released as Baguio City Mayor Reinaldo Bautista Jr proclaimed the declaration of the Opening of the Panagbenga 2010. This was done simultaneous with the unveiling of the 15th Flower Festival banner, by the festival’s co-chairmen, Baguio Country Club

General Manager Anthony De Leon and Camp John Hay Chief Operations Officer Freddie Alquiroz. The University of Cordillera also gave a performance as the Philippine Military Academy Band played the Panagbenga Hymn.

In a press conference, Alquiroz, assured the public of a grander staging of Panagbenga, that would equal if not surpass the Panagbenga 2009. He also highlighted the media’s important role on promoting the festival, so as the city’s tourism industry, could have a faster turnaround from the adverse effect of the recent disasters that hit the region.

“Through the media’s help, we can push forward the message that Baguio is here, up and about and never went out of business,” Alquiroz said.
De Leon bared that there will be new activities for the Panagbenga 2010, which will run from February 1 to March 7. Among these are new musical concert on the lake titled “Camelot,” during the staging of the Fluvial Parade at the Burnham Park Lake on February 14, and the staging of a “Mardi Gras,” at the Harrison road, in time with the Session Road in Bloom on March 1-7.

Other regular scheduled activities for the flower festival include Market Encounter at the Burnham Park (Feb. 1 – March 7), Legarda Rocks (February 12-14), Abanao Nights (Feb 26-28), Pony Boys Day (March 6), plus the usual highlights of the Panagbenga: a Grand Street parade on February 27 and a Grand Float Parade on February 28. The Chinese Lunar New Year Celebration (Feb.13) and the PMA Homecoming (Feb. 20 – 22), are also entwined with the Pangabenga 2010.

Meantime, Department of Tourism (DOT-CAR) Regional Director Pura Molintas also stressed the importance of sustaining the Panagbenga, which is a major tourist festival that has already gained an international stature. She said this is a major economic activity that plays a major role not only in boosting the city and the region’s tourism but also the country’s development as well

Unesco gives $ 50,000 for Ifugao rice terraces rehab
Posted by: Redjie Melvic Cawis / PIA-CAR | December 6,, 2009

Banaue Rice TerracesLAGAWE, Ifugao – With the damages of the recent typhoons to the Ifugao Rice Terraces, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural organization (UNESCO) is granting the province $50, 000.00 for the rehabilitation of the damaged areas.

The Ifugao Rice Terraces, which was declared as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, was heavily damaged by the recent typhoons that hit the province in the past months.

Ifugao Governor Teodoro Baguilat Jr.said that the money will be used basically to repair the damaged terraces and fields particularly in Banaue, Mayoyao, Hungduan and Kiangan. It will also be utilized to help in the preservation of the rice terraces and prevent it from decaying since it has been placed under the list of endangered World Heritage Site.

Since the rice terraces are a memorial to the history and labor of more than a thousand generations of small-scale farmers who, working together as a community, have created a landscape based on a delicate and sustainable use of natural resources, Baguilat decided to give the money to the farmers and land owners who will be in charge of the repair and maintenance of the terraces.

The rice terraces are a dramatic testimony to a community’s sustainable and primarily communal system of rice production, involving harvesting water from the forest clad mountain tops and creating stone terraces and ponds, a system that has survived for two millennia.

Despite the damages on the rice terraces, Baguilat stressed that tourism is still stable.

The province is expecting additional funding from UNESCO and an Italian sister province for the rehabilitation of the terraces.
