Pantawid children beneficiaries compete for Poster Making, Essay Writing Contests

The Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office II in partnership with the Regional Sub-Committee for the Welfare of Children (RSCWC) capped the celebration of Children’s Month through a Regional Children’s Forum at Holiday Plaza Hotel, Tuguegarao City on October 29-30, 2013.

Around 60 children beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program in the region joined in the 2-day activity which highlighted on the importance of compliance in the program’s health and education conditionalities and to make the children as young advocates of the program.

Aside from the discussion about the Pantawid Pamilya, there were also re-orientation about the Children’s Rights and on the functions of the Local Council for the Protection of Chidren (LCPC) and Barangay Council for the Protection of Children (BCPC). These discussions heightened the awareness of the participants about their rights and the government’s effort to promote and protect their welfare.

The highlight of the activity was the Poster Making, Essay Writing and the Jingle Making Contests on the theme “Kahirapan wakasan, karapatan ng bata ipaglaban” wherein the children beneficiaries competed and represented their respective provinces. Winners received cash prizes and certificate of recognition.

In her speech, DSWD Regional Director Violeta A. Cruz emphasized about the important role of children in nation-building so the government and the community must join effort in ensuring that their rights are being protected.

Director Cruz also reminded that as children, they also have responsibilities and obligations to fulfill in their society, especially, in their respective families. “Kayong mga bata ay may karapatang makapag-aral, kaya naman nakikita niyo ang paghihirap ng inyong mga magulang upang matugunan ang inyong mga pangangailangan. Nandiyan din ang Pantawid para makatulong sa mga gastusin niyo sa paaralan, ngunit dapat niyo ring suklian ito lalo na ang paghihrap ng inyong nanay at tatay,” Director Cruz said.

“Bawat karapatan na naibigay sa inyo ay may kaakibat na responsibilidad. Karapatan niyong mag-aral, ngunit obligasyon niyo rin na mag-aral ng mabuti,” emphasized Director Cruz to the children.

Elojah John Pagadut, a Pantawid child beneficiary of Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya, and the champion in Essay Writing Contest, wrote “Sana patuloy pang mapangalagaan ang aming mga karapatan dahil bata man kaming maituring, malaki namn ang aming maiaambag upang makamit ng lipunan na ito ang inaasam-asam na kaunlaran.”

The celebration of Children’s Month is done every October, annually pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 267 issued on September 30, 1993, to recognize and emphasize the important role of children within the Filipino family and in nation building.###By MARICEL B.

FEATURE: Keeping The Faith Alive

“Ang buhay po ay parang pelikula, pangit man po ang simula, nasasayo po yun kung papano mo pagagandahin ang istorya, para po maging happy ending,” said the ten-year old who wowed audience with her impeccable acting skills.

When the clapperboard kisses each other, she begins to enunciate her dialog with feelings. She moves across the stage with grace. She speaks every line with conviction. Every word she said, strike the hearts of the viewers. No wonder, she was hailed as the “Best Child Performer” during their Theater Arts Acting Workshop.

Brend Faith B. Wakit, is the pride of the Municipality of Kayapa, Nueva Vizcaya. Not just that she is known as the localized version of “Maricel Soriano”, but because she can also dance and sing. Aside from her talent in acting, Brend is also a member of Bulo Galsa Primary School’s dance troupe and choir. Because of this, she is often invited to perform whenever there is an activity not just in the school, but also in the barangay.

She is tagged as “The Little Girl with Big Talents” which really makes her parents proud. Brend is a loving and obedient daughter to Mang Aurelio and Aling Dominga. She is also a caring sister to her siblings, namely: Anabelle, Marlon, Daniel and Redeline.

Mang Aurelio sustains the needs of his family, through farming while Aling Dominga is housewife. They are very grateful for the Pantawid Pamilya because the cash grants they receive augment in their medical needs, especially in the school requirements of their children.

 But the greater impact of Pantawid in their life is that, both Mang Aurelio and Aling Dominga became more responsible parents. They toil hard in order to sustain their family’s needs. They also continue to inculcate good values to their children. Despite the financial shortcomings, the Wakit family continues to live a happy life.

“Salat man kami sa pera, may maipagmamalaki naman akong mga gintong medalya ng aking mga anak. Ito ang kayamanan naming mag-asawa,” Aling Dominga gushed. Yes, the Wakit house is adorned with certificates and medals showcasing the intellectual perspicacity and talents of their children, most of which belongs to Brend.

Brend cannot just act. She cannot just sing. She cannot just dance. There is so much more to her. Because greater that those skills, she is a little girl with bright mind.

Since Grade I, she was the 1st Honor. Now that she’s in Grade 4, she continues to gain grades of flying colors. With her excellent academic standing, she often represents her school in different activities, competitions and quiz bees.

Her recent participation were in the Filipino Readathon; Masining na Pagkuwento; TADULKA (Training of Pupils and teachers in Drama and Dula-Dulaan); and Girl Scout Jamboree wherein she brought home bacons.

Brend is also a campus journalist and an officer in their classroom. With all the achievements in her little hand, Brend is more motivated to persevere for the realization of her dreams.

“Kahit mahirap po kami, masaya po ako sa takbo ng buhay namin. May mga taong handa naman pong tumulong samin. Parang sa mga pelikula po, may mga tumutulong dun sa bida. Kami yung bida, ako yung bida. Tapos andiyan yung DSWD, yung Pantawid Pamilya na kasama namin tungo sa kaunlaran”, Brend said. She also stressed that Pantawid gives her a bigger chance of having a brighter future.

“Gusto ko pong maging guro, para ang bawat bata ay maturuan ko. Pero higit po sa mga impormasyon tungkol sa mga iba’t-ibang asignatura, gusto ko pong maikintal sa isipan nila na hindi sila dapat malungkot kung naghihirap sila,” Brend said, with her eyes that shine with hope, “Kasi may mga talento at utak tayong binigay ng Diyos. Yun yung mga gagamitin natin para mas may magandang bukas na nakangiti satin,” she continued.

When the clapperboard kisses each other, she begins to enunciate her dialog with feelings. She moves across the stage with grace. She speaks every line with conviction. Every word she said, strike the hearts of the viewers. Because of her acting prowess, she was hailed as the “Best Child Performer” during their Theater Arts Acting Workshop.

But now, because of her talents and wit that inspire her contemporaries to continue to dream, continue to believe, continue to live despite life’s intricacies and challenges, BREND FAITH WAKIT of Kayapa, Nueva Vizcaya is hailed as an exemplary children beneficiary of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program.###By MARICEL B.

FEATURE: The First Dumagat Teacher

DUMAGATs. These people are believed to be the earliest settlers in Palanan, Isabela. They look exactly like Agtas- with the black skin and kinky hair. They also have common lifestyle; they are nomads who move from one place to another in search of food.

These natives do not have their own homes. Also, neither do they have access to education nor have job to finance their daily necessities. Since they do not have money, they solely depend on the gifts of nature for their survival.

“May mga araw na wala kaming mahanap na pagkain, kaya pumupunta kami sa palengke para humingi ng makakain,” said Bulol and Merly Donato.

But Bulol wants to make a difference and put an end to their passive attitude towards life. Thus, the couple embraced Christianity.

There, Bulol and Merly were taught how to read and write. Their fear of interacting with other people, especially to the non-Dumagats, diminished.

And the transformation of these Dumagat couple continued.

The Donato family became a beneficiary of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program with the municipality of Palanan as one of the three pilot areas in region 02. “Ang Pantawid, tuluyang binago ng programang iyan ang takbo ng aming buhay,” Bulol said.

Aside from the cash grant which the couple consider a very big help to augment their financial needs, the program taught them much about their strengths and skills as human and how can they use these abilities to improve their status in life. Through their regular attendance to the Family Development Sessions (FDS), they became open-minded and empowered. Since then, their yearning to become a catalyst of change in their tribe started to ignite.

Bulol, Merly, together with other fellow Dumagats started planting fruit-bearing trees and crops for food. But since they are already empowered, they learned how to utilize what they have for their own advancement. Thus, they began selling fruits and vegetables. They used the money for buying things that cannot be found in the forest.

Because of the Pantawid Pamilya, they also recognized the existence of the government, the church, especially the schools and health centers since visiting to these facilities is part of their compliance to the program.

Cognizant of the importance of education, the hard-working parents decided to send their children to school. Luckily, fate was surely on their favor because a pastor offered a college scholarship for their second child, Mary Ann.

At first, both Bulol and Merly have second thoughts whether to send their daughter to Nueva Vizcaya or not, but when they saw Mary’s fiery determination to study and finish college, they finally let her go.

So Mary Ann, after winning her parents’ approval, went to Nueva Vizcaya and pursued Bachelor of Science in Education. For almost four years, she was not able to see and talk with her family, but she endured the agony of being away from them just to have a college degree.

Indeed, good things come to those who work hard. Just last year, Mary Ann returned to the coastal area of Palanan holding her College Diploma and License as a full-fledged teacher after passing the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET). Mary Ann came back to her family, to her community, to her municipality as the first Dumagat teacher.

Presently, Mary Ann teaches at Culasi Elementary School. She now takes charge in sending her two siblings to school. She also plays the second parent to Dumagat and non-Dumagat pupils. She teaches the children with the ABCs and 123s. But aside from the alphabets and parts of the body, Mary Ann teaches her pupils that with determination and perseverance, they too, can have a brighter tomorrow.

“Katutubo man o hindi, maitim man o maputi ang balat, hanggang mayroon kang pangarap at sasamahan mo ang pangarap na iyon ng pagsisikap at determinasyon, possible na magkaroon ng mas magandang hinaharap. Kahit sino, Dumagat man o hindi, ay kayang-kayang tumawid tungo sa kaunlaran,” Mary Ann said.

With their daughter’s achievement, Bulol and Merly cannot help but be proud and be happy. “Lahat tayo, may kakayanang umangat mula sa kahirapan. Iahad natin ng matibay at matatag an gating mga palad, dahil may mga taong hihila satin mula sa kumunoy ng paghihirap,” ended the fulfilled parents to the first Dumagat teacher.###By CHONA MAY SIMON, Municipal Link of Palanan, Isabela

FEATURE: Halfway There

Just like the picturesque mountains that conquered the test of times, she stands with pride and grace. Just like the fluffy clouds that kiss the royal blue skies, she thinks of big dreams with eyes that shine with determination.

“Ang buhay naman ay parang pelikula, pangit man ang simula, nasasayo yun kung papano mo pagagandahin ang istorya, para maging happy ending,” said the forty-three year old who earned the respect of her community.

Julieta B. Ramalloza, is a Parent Leader of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program in the municipality of Kasibu, Nueva Vizcaya. As part of her duties as a leader beneficiary, she relays information to her members about the schedule of Family Development Sessions. She also shares to them updates and announcements about the program.

Aling Juliet, as she is called, has many involvements in her barangay, Kongkong Valley. Aside from being a Parent Leader, she also performs other little heroic deeds that make her loved by her fellows.


Aside from being a Parent Leader, Aling Juliet is also a Barangay Health Worker. Every first Wednesday of the month, she walks terrains and climbs mountains to give vaccine and Vitamin C to children. Aling Juliet is also a member of the Community Health Team.

She is also active in the different organizations of her children’s school, as the Secretary for the Parents-Teachers and Community Association (PTCA) and Treasurer of Kongkong Valley National High School.

“Masaya ako na kahit sa simple kong paraan, ay nakakatulong ako sa mga kapwa ko. Yan ang pinakamalaking pagbabago na idinulot ng Pantawid sa akin, nagkaroon ako ng pakialam sa kapwa ko at sa aking lipunan,” Aling Julieta started.

Following her statement, she said that she used to be apathetic about her surroundings. But when the program came to her life, everything has changed.

Now, Aling Juliet is endearing to all the barangay folks. Everywhere she goes, she is greeted with happy and smiling faces. “Nakakatuwa, ang sarap sa pakiramdam na kilala nila ako at kahit hindi ako nakakaangat sa buhay ay, nirerespeto nila ako. At yan yung ipinagmamalaki ko,” she said.

Many problems already entered the Ramalloza’s residence, but they never waved the white flag. Instead, they continue to have faith that someday, they will have a better life. And it is Aling Juliet who fuels her family’s spirit since she is also a Lector and an Eucharistic Minister in their Parish Church.

Meanwhile, Aling Juliet’s husband, Roger, endures the pain of being away from the family just to earn as a Carpenter. He only comes home during weekends. Thus, Mang Roger makes sure that they will have a quality family bonding together.


Aling Juliet and Mang Roger are blessed with five children,: Ivy Joy, 20 years old; Justin, 18 years old; Roger Jr, 16 years old; Julie Ann, 12 years old; and Jeniffer, 9 years old.

Roger Jr. is currently 1st year college student at Nueva Vizcaya State University- Bambang taking up Bachelor of Science in Information Technology. He was offered with a 100% scholarship by University of the Cordilleras (UC) and the University of Cagayan Valley (UV) but declined since it is far from their residence.

The young Jennifer is also doing well in her class. Aside from academic recognitions, Jennifer is also given applause for being a dancer. She captures the hearts of the audience whenever she grooves in the center stage.


The wide backyard of the Ramalloza’s residence is adorned with many ornamental plants, fruit bearing trees and vegetables. Name it, they have it! From papaya, ampalaya, talong, kamote, and even the delicious dragon fruit!


Since the beneficiaries from Kasibu implemented the scheme of liquidating their cash grants, Aling Julieta uses the money for the school needs of her children. She even bragged that she already paid the contributions of her children.

Because she knows that the cash grant given by Pantawid is just an augmentation support, Aling Julieta also put up a little business. She is a dealer for different beauty products like AVON and Natasha.

“Nagtayo ako ng konting pagkakakitaan para mas matugunan pa naming ang pangangailangan ng mga bata. Maganda naman kasi may mga customer talaga ako,” Aling Julieta happily shared.

The Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program motivated them to strive more for the improvement of their well-being. Thus, Aling Julieta strongly opposed the claims that the program teaches its beneficiaries to be lazy and be dependent on the government.

“Ang nakukuha po naming sa programa ay P1, 400 lang kada buwan, na pandagdag po. Kaya nga po Pantawid eh, kasi tinutulungan kaming maitawid ang mga pangangailangan ng mga bata, sa mga gamot at gamit sa paaralan,” she said.

For the Ramalloza family, the Pantawid is their key to enter the world wherein their dreams have come true. With the children’s perseverance and the parents’ dedications, the family is on the right track towards a more sustainable life. ###By MARICEL B. ASEJO, Pantawid Information Officer II

This is now the new brand of the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS – PR), a special project of the Department of Social Welfare and Development. It is coined from the words “Listahan” which means list and “tahanan” which means home or family. The new brand name comes with a new tagline “Talaan ng Pamilyang Nangangailangan” which literally means “list of families in need”.

The new brand is more catchy and meaningful and shorter by far than the old name and can easily be remembered by the public and partners.

The data-base of LISTAHANAN which contains the list of poor households and other related data is now being used by national government agencies, local government units and civil society organizations to identify beneficiaries of their socio-economic development programs (also known as social protection program) that aims to improve the quality of life of the identified poor households. As a result, meager resources are now focused on those who are truly in need.

LISTAHANAN will soon be formally launched to herald the conduct of the 2nd regionwide household assessment. ###Ailyn P. Aglaua, AAV

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Field Office 02 spearheaded the week-long celebration of the National Family Week with its theme “Unity Across Generations: A Strong Family, A Strong Society” or “Nagkakaisang Henerasyon: Matatag Na Pamilya, Matatag na Lipunan” from September 20 to 27, 2013.

A kick-off program was held last September 19, 2013 at People’s Gymnasium, Tuguegarao City in coordination with its Local Government Unit and the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office respectively.

The event was jam-packed with representatives from different Regional Lined Agencies, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and family beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program from the 43 barangays of the city.

In her message, Assistant Regional Director for Administration Delia Sto. Tomas gave praise to the Filipino family for being strong amid crisis and calamities. She also enjoined everyone to start creating a family that will embody good Filipino values. “Sama-sama tayong bumuo ng isang matatag na pamilya at lumikha ng isang lipunan na maipagmamalaki natin bilang mga Pilipino, hindi lang tayo na nabubuhay sa kasalukuyan kundi lalo na ng mga pamilya sa susunod pang henerasyon,” she said.

Since the festivity honors the Filipino families, Pantawid Pamilya beneficiaries took the center stage and showcased their dancing and singing skills in the “Family’s Got Talent” Contest wherein winning families were awarded with cash prizes.

Presidential Proclamation No. 60 declared the observance of the National Family Week on the last week of September and every year thereafter.


The Opening Program was attended by almost 200 family beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program in Tuguegarao City.

In a testimony shared by Mrs. Glomeline Taguinod, who is also a Parent Leader from Brgy. Dadda, she expressed how grateful their family is for being one of the beneficiary of the poverty-alleviation project.

“Napakalaking tulong ang naibibigay ng Pantawid Pamilya samin kasi may kaagapay na kami sa pagtugon sa mga pangangailangan n gaming mga anak. Pero higit pa dun sa tulong pinansyal, dahil sa programa, mas naging matatag ang aming pamilya dahil kaming mag-asawa ay mas naging responsible,” said Mrs. Taguinod.

She also said that the program gives higher hopes to the fulfillment of their children’s dreams.

Pantawid Pamilya is currently implemented in the 4 cities and 83 municipalities in the provinces of Cagayan, Isabela, Quirino and Nueva Vizcaya. As of now, there is a total of 94, 315 household beneficiaries in Region II.


Another highlight of the festivity was the staging of Tipon-Tipan at the Core Shelter Assistance Project (CSAP) Site at Brgy. Mozzozin, Sta. Maria, Isabela on September 24, 2013.

The panelists during the media forum were Mr. Marciano Dameg, Institutional Development Division (IDD) Chief representing DSWD; Ms. Rosana Calimahuyan representing Commission on Population (PopCom); Alexis Arturo Anza, Executive Assistant representing the Local Government Unit of Santa Maria; Ms. Consorcia Viernes, MSWDO; and the Presidents of the Neighborhood Assistance Shelter Association (NASA) of Phase 1, 2 and 3 respectively.

The forum dwelt on the program of the government in promotion and protection of the Filipino family’s welfare.

Division Chief Marciano Dameg emphasized that DSWD continues to implement programs which will cater to the needs of the Filipino values. He cited the conduct of Family Development Sessions (FDS) for Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program wherein parent beneficiaries are taught about Effective Parenting, Husband and Wife Relationship, Child Development, among others.

NASA Presidents also thanked the DSWD, the government and other agencies for their unwavering commitment to uplift the lives and well-being of the poor Filipino families.

CSAP is one of the rehabilitation projects of the national government implemented by DSWD to immediately provide shelter to families whose houses were totally damaged and blown down during disasters.

Meanwhile, the Tipon-Tipan is a weekly media forum spearheaded by the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Region II which is attended and covered by local media practitioners in the region. It is also aired live in many radio stations and cable TV stations.

The media forum culminated with a “Pista sa Nayon”-themed program wherein CSAP beneficiaries also rendered intermission numbers.

During lunch, representatives from the different regional lined agencies, LGU, members of the Media and the CSAP beneficiaries happily ate together in a boodle-fight. ### By MARICEL B. ASEJO, Pantawid Information Officer II
