Listahanan completes UCT field validation in MIMAROPA

MALATE, Manila- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has completed field validation of Listahanan-identified poor households for the Unconditional Cash Transfer (UCT) in Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, and Palawan or (MIMAROPA) provinces.

From the 93,436 household targets, 92,205 households or 98 percent are validated and verified regionwide.

The UCT household validation spearheaded by DSWD- Listahanan started on the second week of March and was officially completed last week of April 2018.  A total of 22,981 households has been validated in Oriental Mindoro; 17,594 in Occidental Mindoro; 6,319 in Marinduque; 7,777 in Romblon; and 38,103 in Palawan.

The Department has hired 392 validators in MIMAROPA who have administered house-to-house interviews for 45 days.

“From the number of nonvalidated households are those unlocated, transferred to other provinces or regions, vacant, and in some cases no available qualified respondents,” said Listahanan Regional Coordinator Ernie H. Jarabejo.

According to validation guidelines, to qualify as respondents they should be at least 15 years old above, member of the household to be validated, and able to verify the accuracy of the household information or profile.

Jarabejo stressed that hired validators have exhausted all possible means to locate and verify those missing households as not to be left behind before the barangay issues certification attesting cases of unlocated or transferred.

Moreover, the barangay council also issued a certification of completion testifying that validation activity in the area is successfully conducted based on standard protocols.

The UCT validation is a mechanism to identify possible and qualified recipients of cash grants as a government’s mitigating measure on the effect of the new Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) law.

“The said validation aims to assess possible recipients of social welfare cash assistance to poor families who are heavily affected by the increasing prices of basic commodities due to the TRAIN law. Priority targets are non-Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino and Social Pension Program households,” added Jarabejo.

Meanwhile, DSWD clarifies that the household validation aims not to delist, select and expand new and current Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program and other program partner-beneficiaries.

As of this writing, all validated forms will be encoded for updating of the household profile.

Listahanan is a government tool to identify who and where the poor are nationwide. ###

DSWD to start household validation for UCT recipients in MIMAROPA

MALATE, Manila- The Listahanan of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MIMAROPA will conduct house-to-house validation of some 94,000 potential beneficiaries of the government’s Unconditional Cash Transfer (UCT) program starting this month regionwide.

“Under RA 10963 of 2017 or the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) law, UCT program will provide unconditional cash grants to Listahanan-identified poor households whose income belong up to the seventh decile,” said Listahanan Regional Coordinator Ernie Jarabejo.

UCT is the biggest social mitigation program under the Duterte administration to aid families who will not benefit from the lower income tax rates but will be adversely affected by rising prices of basic commodities. Recipients will receive P200.00 per month this year; and P300.00/month in 2019 and 2020.

DSWD Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) and Social Pension program beneficiaries will also receive UCT grants to mitigate the moderate and temporary increases in prices due to the enforcement of the comprehensive tax reform program, added Jarabejo.

More than 400 field staff are deployed in the five island MIMAROPA provinces to complete the UCT validation in April.

Jarabejo also calls target household respondents to provide complete and factual information to ensure accurate results.

Listahanan is the government mechanism to identify who and where the poor are. According to the 2015 database, 37 percent or 221,324 households identified as poor out of the 584,562 total households assessed in Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan provinces. ###

SLP Marinduque, Marinduque State College hold Skills Training for Meat Processing

In partnership with Marinduque State College (MSC), the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) conducted a series of skills training on meat processing last January 27-28 and February 2-3, 2018.

Participants from various barangays of Boac gathered at the food laboratory of MSC. The organizers also invited Ms. Nenita Gonzales and Ms. Ma. Edelwina Blasé who served as resource speakers for the training.

Participants answered the pre-test examination before they were assembled into smaller groups for the training proper. Some of the discussions include the principles and procedure of meat processing, meat preservation, and even food presentation which the participants enjoyed a lot.

Each group was then assigned to evaluate the performance and product of the other groups through food tasting. Two of the participants shared their insights on the overall training before the certificates and tokens were awarded to the speakers.

SLP partners with different service providers for the conduct of skills training to hone the participants on the modality they chose.
