DSWD all set for Gawad Listahanan

Davao City -The Department of Social Welfare and Development XI (DSWD) through Listahanan or the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTSPR) is set to nominate for Gawad Listahanan deserving Local Government Units (LGUs) that have been utilizing the Listahanan data of identified poor families since 2011.

This is on top of the the DSWD annual awards “Pagkilala sa Natatanging Kontribusyon sa Bayan” (PaNata Ko sa Bayan), said Regional Director Priscilla N. Razon of DSWD.

Director Razon emphasized that Gawad Listahanan was conceived to recognize LGUs that committed and actively utilized the 2009 Listahanan database as they implement their locally funded programs and services.

Thus, it will also promote the complementation and convergence of all social protection stakeholders on the identified poor to effectively address the different aspects of poverty, she added.

LGUs may be nominated to the competition provided that they follow a set of minimum standards.

Gawad Listahanan will be conferred in January 2015 at the DSWD Central Office in Batasan, Quezon City.

The awardees will receive a plaque citing the highlights of their contributions and the significance of their partnership with the department. A cash incentive of Php 50,000 will also be presented.

Listahanan is a DSWD national project that identifies who and where the poor are. It is an information management system that aims to establish a database of poor households that will become beneficiaries of social protection programs.

The database of poor households shows various poverty indicators like composition of households, socio-economic condition, incidence of senior citizens, access to water and electricity, occupation, income, and tenure status, among others.

To date, the Listahanan database is being used by 16 municipalities, one city, two provinces, one non-government organization and five national government agencies that have entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with DSWD.

“We urge other LGUs and NGOs to adopt the available data to ensure that social protection programs and services will benefit those who really need the assistance, and consequently promote a standardized and transparent household targeting system for improved governance, transparency and accountability,” Director Razon added.

New Corella, Davao Del Norte  -The fifth Bahay Pagasa in Davao Region was opened here on September 1 with a Blessing and Handover ceremonies led by Davao Del Norte Governor Rodolfo P. Del Rosario, Vice Governor Victorio R. Suaybaguio Jr. and Director Priscilla N. Razon of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

Located in a Poblacion New Corella, the center is located in a four-hectare provincial rehabilitation complex along with the Luntiang Paraiso Regional Rehabilitation Center, a drug dependents’ rehab facility.

The center was completed with a funding of Php 2.5 million from Sen. Francis Pangilinan through DSWD and Php 1 million from Rep. Anthony Del Rosario.

Joining the occasion which also commemorated the 80th birthday of Governor Del Rosario, were some local chief executives of the province, municipal social welfare officers, provincial and Tagum City prosecution officials, IP leaders, media practitioners, officials of national agencies and local governments, and officers of Tagum cooperatives.

After the Blessing which was officiated by Rev. Fr. Juanito Lozano of Christ the King Parish, Tagum City, Director Razon presented the objectives of Bahay Pagasa before she turned over the center’s Manual of Operations to the governor.

Governor Del Rosario in his acceptance message said another center to serve disadvantaged women will be put up in the rehabilitation complex. “We are going to call this whole complex Welfare Village, The Healing Fields. I challenge the provincial social welfare office to further improve their services for the good of Davao Del Norte.

Established in all regions throughout the country, Bahay Pag-asa is a 24-hour residential facility that provides temporary care and serves as a rehabilitation center to a maximum of 25 male CICL at any given time.

The center provides protection, care, capability building and rehabilitation for   CICL in a home-like environment for a maximum period of six months.

Managed by the local government unit, Bahay Pagasa facilitates the immediate assessment of the physical, psycho-social, medical and economic condition of the CICL to arrive at a holistic understanding of the child in relation with his violation of the law.

The assessment will guide the social worker in formulating and executing an individualized rehabilitation plan or program that will address the needs of the child.  (DSWD)
