ABSNet turns 16

ABSNet marks its 16th anniversary celebration at Abreeza Ayala Mall following a motorcade around downtown Davao City. ABSNet or Area-Based Standards Network is an organization of DSWD-licensed and accredited Social Welfare and Development Agencies (SWDAs) that implement different social welfare and development programs and services. To date there are 126 members of ABSNet XI.

A license is a certificate issued by DSWD to an agency which has complied with the statutory requirements to operate.  RA 4373 requires NGOs and government entities “utilizing social work methods and interventions to secure a license from DSWD before they can operate as a social work/social welfare and development agency.”  The DSWD, through its regulatory function provides the standards and guidelines that govern the service delivery by the NGOs to ensure that the goal of uplifting the well-being of the disadvantaged is achieved.  (DSWD)

7K Pantawid recipients benefit from Super Radyo Anti-Dengue Project

Recipients of dengue kits.

Davao City- At least 7,000 Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries here were served through Tepok Lamok-Anti Dengue Campaign Project of RGMA Super Radyo Davao in partnership with Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

Covering a total of 10 barangays here, the RGMA Serbisyo Publiko was also made possible with the support of City Social Services and Development Office (CSSDO), Church of the Latter-Day Saints Charities, and City Health Office (CHO).

Prioritized areas were Matina Crossing, Matina Aplaya, Talomo Proper, Toril Proper, Baliok, Ula, Buhangin Proper, Sasa, Tibungco and Biao Joaquin.

These barangays have high cases of dengue, revealed CHO Tropical Diseases Prevention and Control Division Chief Elizabeth Banzon.

“As part of our corporate social responsibility, this year we want to focus on the health aspect of the poor and disadvantaged communities in Davao City. Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries are the ones prioritized because we know that these people are the most vulnerable in crisis situation,” Super Radyo Station Manager Arnie Delfin said.

The team distributed dengue kits containing Ovicial/Larvicidal Traps (device used to control aedes mosquito population), organic insect repellent (citronella oil) sponsored by T.K.O., grocery items and other giveaways.

An orientation for Pantawid beneficiaries on the Prevention of Dengue Cases was also done in every barangay to ensure that families are knowledgeable on health issues like dengue outbreak and on how to maintain cleanliness in their communities.

Feeding program was also conducted in the 10 barangays.

“We really appreciate the efforts of Super Radyo in this kind of Serbisyo Publiko because we feel that they are with us in serving the poor families like our Pantawid beneficiaries. We are happy also that they use Listahanan data in their programs and services,” DSWD Regional Director Mercedita P. Jabagat said.

RGMA Super Radyo has been a Listahanan data user since 2013. All programs and services it offers always prioritize Listahanan-identified poor families. Further, Super Radyo actively refers to DSWD and to other appropriate agencies their radio listeners needing assistance.

Listahanan is a data management system of DSWD that identifies who and where the poor are, while Pantawid Pamilya is a human development program of the national government that invests in the health and education of poor households primarily of children aged 0-18. To, date there are 233,985 Pantawid beneficiaries in Davao Region. (DSWD)

From homemaker to community leader

Panabo City, Davao Del Norte -“Gusto ko makatabang sa akoang isig katawo kay kabalo ko nga kung sila pud sa akong kabahin motabang pud sila. Boluntaryo gyud nga pagpanerbisyo akoang ginahatag (I want to help my fellow beneficiaries because I know that if they are in my shoes they will also do the same. I am offering my service voluntarily),” said 45-year old Marriette Mordeno of Barangay New Visayas, Panabo City, Davao del Norte.

Marriette has been a Pantawid Pamilya Parent Leader since 2010. Being an active overall Parent Leader serving around 200 members in 6 clusters did not hinder her from being a loving mother of four -18-year old Alfritz John who is in 3rd year college taking up BS Human Resource Management; Mark Anthony, 16, an upcoming 1st year college student; Alyzza Marrie, 14, who is in Grade 8 and 8-year old Alfaye who is in Grade 4. Her husband, Mezraim, 45, works as a Maintenance Crew at AsiaPro earning P 301 per day.

Marriette also suffered from a mild stroke when she was 28 which resulted to her having Bell’s Palsy, a facial nerve paralysis. But even her disability did not stop her from doing what she loved most  –serving.

Before Pantawid Pamilya came, Marriette recalls her usual day being a homemaker – tending the children, doing the laundry and cleaning the house. “Karon nga naa na ang programa, malipayon ko nga midawat sa challenge nga gihatag sa akoa. Tungod sa programa namahimo ko nga abtik sa kalihokan dili lang sa amoang barangay apil na sa amoang munisipyo (Now with Pantawid Pamilya, I cheerfully accepted the challenge given to me. Because of the program, I became a dynamic member not only in our barangay but in the entire municipality as well).”

From doing plain household chores, Marriette became a much-admired community leader.

In 2012, Marriette was Leadership Awardee (Barangay Level) and became an IP Women President (Barangay Level). In 2013, she became the Vice President for IP Women (Municipal Level) and became a Provincial GAD Advocate for two consecutive years. In 2015, she became one of the Board of Directors in Davao del Norte and an active volunteer on Family Planning.

From a meek homemaker, Marriette became an applauded community leader through Pantawid Pamilya.

Sa una ubos kaayo ang tan-aw sa amoa tungod kay benepisyaryo ko sa Pantawid. Masakitan ko kung mo-ingon sila nga dole out ang Pantawid kay naghulat ra mi tagaan. Mangusog gyud ko og tubag nga dili dole out ang programa kay kaming mga pobre naningkamot ug naghago nga motuman sa kondisyon aron makadawat sa tabang sa gobyerno (People would look down on us before because we are beneficiaries of Pantawid. It hurts when they say it’s dole out, wherein we merely wait for aid. I would strongly respond that it’s not dole out because we strive and work hard to comply with the conditions to be able to receive the assistance of government),” said Marriette.

Marriette is just one of the 7,800 parent leaders of Pantawid Pamilya in Region XI who offer their selfless service to their co-beneficiaries. They are the program’s real unsung heroes.

Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program is a poverty-alleviation strategy of the national government that helps identified poor families send their children to school and keep them healthy. The program has 234,627 active beneficiaries in 6 cities and 43 municipalities in all four provinces in Davao Region. (DSWD)
