18-day anti VAW campaign starts Nov. 25

Davao City – The 18-Day Campaign to End Violence Against Women (VAW) kicks off on November 25 and will push until December 12 under the theme “End VAW Now! It’s Our Duty: Gains and Ways Forward”.

Director Priscilla N. Razon of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) said the special event is spearheaded by the Philippine Commission of Women (PCW) in collaboration with member agencies of the Inter-Agency Council on Violence Against Women and Their Children (IACVAWC).

The event focuses on how far government agencies and other stakeholders have gone in terms of programs and projects that address VAWC, Director Razon said.

In advocating the national observance, all government agencies are enjoined to participate or conduct activities such as Orange Your Icon For 18 Days, hanging of streamer, Online Campaign Thread using official hashtag #endVAWph, inclusion of event and other VAW IEC materials in agency publications, dissemination of VAW information materials, mobilization of MOVE (Men Oppose to Violence Everywhere) to lead in ending VAW, and active collaboration with local VAWC councils in mounting other advocacy activities to end VAWC.

For more information on the campaign, Rica B. Alvis, PCW Information Resource Management Division can be reached at [02]735-8509 or 0917-845-4814 or through email: irmd@pcw.gov.ph and website: www.pcw.gov.ph.

Meanwhile, the Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Week is celebrated from November 15-21 with the theme, Let’s Develop Our Lives, Our Communities, Our Identities Without Drugs.

This event aims to raise public awareness on the alarming issue of drug abuse as mandated under Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 and supports as well the National Anti-Drug Program of Action for 2015-2020. (DSWD)

DSWD all-out support to Serbisyo Caravan nets P68-M

Davao City -“We are happy to report that for the past six years, the Department has released a total of P 68 million-worth of services and programs as our gesture of full support to ARENA XI Serbisyo Caravan,” announced Director Priscilla N. Razon of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

Among the Department’s programs are Sustainable Livelihood, Pantawid Pamilya, Kalahi-CIDSS, Social Pension and Supplementary Feeding, Director Razon said.

Being one of the prime movers of ARENA XI, DSWD has extensively provided vital programs and services to the various communities where Serbisyo Caravan has been.

Organized and spearheaded by ARENA XI or Association of Regional Executives of National Agencies in Region XI, the Serbisyo Caravan delivers frontline government services in depressed communities in South Eastern Mindanao.

Composed of heads and assistant heads of over 50 regional offices of national government agencies based in Davao City, ARENA XI likewise spearheads the inter-agency quarterly flag raising ceremony at People’s Park, conduct of quarterly lecture series, and annual sports festival.

DSWD support

“During the two-day caravan, we always ensured that children enrolled in day care centers in the community are provided with nutritious hot meals. Together with barangay health workers, DSWD workers facilitate the on-site feeding and nutrition-education to both children and parents,” Director Razon shared.

Also, groundbreaking rites for Kalahi-CIDSS sub-projects were conducted as well as payout of Cash For Work and subsidy to grantees of Pantawid Pamilya both for regular and MCCT-IP, she added.

In the latest two caravans in Talaingod, Davao Del Norte and Compostela town, Compostela Valley, implemented sub-projects under Kalahi-CIDSS include corn sheller, solar dryer, drainage line canal, low-cost solar LED home lighting system, tire path, community activity center, double-barrel box culvert, 3-classroom high school building, 2-classroom elementary school building, potable water system, and a multi-purpose building.

Meanwhile, livelihood trainings on Cultural Bead-Accessory Production, Indigenous Basket Production, Native Goat Dispersal, Organic Ginger Production, Cultural Management on Sustainable Vegetable Production, and Organic-Based Lowland/Upland Vegetable Production were launched during the caravan in Talaingod, Davao Del Norte.

Further, DSWD workers set up several stations for the most awaited distribution of family food packs to disadvantaged families. To date, DSWD has allotted 21,000 family food packs.

The Department also handed over assorted educational supplies, raincoats and school bags, and more than 100 assistive devices such as wheelchairs, crutches, quad canes and walkers to persons with disability.

Moving up, reaching more

In a span of six years, Serbisyo Caravan has reached out to as far as the municipalities of Boston, Cateel, Governor Generoso and Mati City in Davao Oriental; Don Marcelino and Sarangani in Davao Occidental; Digos City and Sta. Cruz in Davao Del Sur; Kapalong and Talaingod in Davao del Norte; Paquibato District in Davao City; and Maco, Nabunturan and Compostela in Compostela Valley province.

On its 16th leg, the Serbisyo Caravan has leveled up and became a whole nation initiative dubbed National Serbisyo Caravan with participation of the Cabinet Cluster for Peace Security and Justice led by Undersecretary Emmanuel Bautista. And no less than DSWD Secretary Corazon Juliano Soliman headed the turnover of programs and services in Barangay Sto. Niňo, Talaingod, Davao Del Norte last June.

Member agencies of ARENA XI will continue to converge, convoy and convey their premium services for as long as there are people who are determined on improving their lives by rigorously participating in government initiatives. (DSWD)
