DSWD 12 to promote public-private partnership in its livelihood programs

by Dennis G. Domingo II

GENERAL SANTOS CITY, Jan 31 (PIA) -- The Department of Social Welfare and Development has called on its regional and provincial offices to strengthen network building strategies in view of implementing sustainable livelihood programs of the government.

Vergil Cabugayan, PDO III of the DSWD central office, emphasized during a recent program evaluation and planning that Public-Private Partnership must be enhanced through networking efforts of program planners and implementers of livelihood programs.

“A public-private partnership exists when public sector agencies join with private sector entities such as companies, foundations, academic institutions or citizens and enter into a business relationship to attain a commonly shared goal that also achieves objectives of the individual partners,” Cabugayan explained.

Cabugayan told participants of the regional planning that DSWD has engaged with some private groups to participate in the government’s livelihood programs for poor families and communities.

One example Cabugayan cited was the Bahay Kubo Project that committed to provide trainings and seminars to the clients of Jose Fabella Center for an innovative vegetable planting to be used for food consumption and livelihood income for pilot project and roll-out to CCT beneficiaries located in urban areas.

Another one, he said, was the Irraya Farm Project that is committed to provide trainings, technology and farm inputs to agri-projects of conditional cash transfer beneficiaries in Palawan and Eastern Samar.

Some international engagements, according to Cabugayan, include JICA through PinoyME Foundation that assisted in the development of the Community Driven Enterprise Development Operations Manual for the Sustainable Livelihood Program and JSDF that supports funding from JSDF for its project entitled "Community Enterprise Development as Pathway Out of Poverty".

Cabugayan also discussed Community Driven Enterprise Development, concentrating on four stages of business success: business sustainability and local economic development Stage; business development; resource mobilization and business operations; and business management.

“I enjoin you to conduct environmental scanning within your community and look for opportunities in order to get the support of local groups,” he said.

Among those who attended the livelihood program planning were project development officers, provincial and municipal social welfare and development officers, some monitoring and evaluation officers and convergence program staff. (DEDoguiles/PIA 12/DSWD12)
