DSWD-IX sets up SWD learning network

Zamboanga City (March 27) -- In line with the agency's thrust of building the capacities of its intermediaries and stakeholders, the DSWD Regional Office has established the Social Welfare and Development Learning Network (SWD L-Net) in the region.

The SWD L-Net is composed of organizations, agencies, schools and individuals who are engaged in poverty alleviation and social protection programs and services, forming themselves as a network of learning institutions. It seeks to provide access to relevant and quality learning programs among the members and other SWD constituencies and clientele.

The scheme has three components: 1) Policy Development & Planning, which covers SWD environmental assessment and strategic positioning; 2) Organization & Mobilization, which includes recruitment and capacity building of members; and 3) Resource Generation, which includes operation, management and institutionalization of the network.

The network will basically focus on trainings, exchanges (of information, learnings, best practices, resources, etc.) and research. It will work through bilateral arrangements and/or through common programs among its members.

In region 9, the SWD L-Net has identified its sectoral membership as follows: a) Academe: WMSU (CSWCD); b) LGUs: P/CSWDOs; c) NGOs: Child & Youth, Women, PWD, Older Persons, Family & Community; d) NGAs: CRC, DOLE, DILG, NCIP, DOH, NNC; e) Professional Association: PASWI.

Among its initial plans include tapping the federated SWD-peoples organizations like the KALIPI, PWD, Day Care Workers, Sr. Citizens, PYAP as additional members of the network, and the creation of the AdHoc Committee which shall work on the profiling of members and structuring the organization.

The ultimate goal of the SWD L-Net is geared towards an effective and responsive delivery of social welfare and development services, for an improved quality of life of the poor, disadvantaged and vulnerable sector. (DSWD 9/PIA 9-zc) [top]
