PIA Press Release
2006/10/18

Overcoming extreme poverty week set October 17-23

Davao City (18 October) -- With the theme Crossing Over the Threshold: Focusing Priorities Against Poverty up to 2010, the Philippine government commemorates the National Week for Overcoming Extreme Poverty beginning today until the 23rd of October.

Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 717, series of 2004, the event is led by the National Anti-Poverty Commission and seeks to unite and gather the support of all stakeholders in the fight against extreme poverty.

This year’s collective efforts hope to revitalize and refocus public attention in fast-tracking and achieving the government’s poverty-reduction goals and targets.

Among the activities to mark the observance is the recitation of the Tumayo Tayo Pledge or Stand Up Against Poverty Pledge, dissemination and discussion of innovative approaches in empowering people, good governance and social reforms through the broadcast media and various fora, issuance of press releases and other convergence undertakings.

The Tumayo Tayo pledge is a global challenge of the United Nations Millennium Campaign designed to coincide with global mobilizations around the International Day of Poverty Eradication and the White Band Day of the Global Call to Action Against Poverty.

Meantime, the DSWD weekly radio programs through DXAB, DXRP and DXRD shall feature DSWD distinct engagements towards community-driven development and genuine people’s participation though its flagship program KALAHI-CIDSS or the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services, and Tindahan Natin under the Self-Employment Assistance (SEA) program. Resource persons and discussants would be KALAHI and SEA volunteers, stakeholders and prime movers in Davao Region. (DSWD/Degs Duron/PIA XI) [top]
