PIA Press Release

DSWD holds SIP-Kalahi National Gab

by Aira Cablinda

Davao City (15 December) -- "Intensifying Community Intervention Implementation" was the theme of the Social Inclusion Project (SIP) National Conference held last December 3-5, 2006 at the Marco Polo Hotel. SIP complements the bank-financed KALAHI-CIDSS Project by piloting innovative approaches whose target are the very poor and vulnerable communities and sub-groups that are harder to reach and less likely to participate in a broad-based program. KALAHI-CIDSS is the national government's framework program for a focused, accelerated, convergent, and expanded strategy to reduce poverty.

The conference was graced by DSWD Assistant Secretary Ruel G. Lucentales and Assistant Director, Dr. Minda B. Brigoli. Resource Persons were Atty. Girlie de Guzman and Ms. Celia V. Santos.

It aimed at acquiring relevant and proper perspective in the efficient and effective implementation of community interventions, necessary skills and right attitude in implementing projects for indigenous people and conflict affected areas; and formulating tactic and strategic re-entry plans for the efficient and effective realization of community projects.

Each region all over the country was represented and was provided opportunity to share respective experiences and learn from the valuable technical inputs from the discussants.

Speakers de Guzman and Santos talked about the development paradigm for indigenous people (IP) and conflict affected communities, salient features of Indigenous People's Reform Act (IPRA) and laws, policies, and issuance related to conflict.

They also shared facilitation tips and clarified that SIP's general program aims primarily to empower -- in real and not in rhetorical sense the indigenous people, the women, and the other oppressed sectors.

Dr. Minda B. Brigoli stressed out, "we hope this training would lead you to be responsible community workers who are conscious of your responsibilities not only to yourselves but also to your fellowmen and to the entire physical environment as well." (DSWD/PIA XI) [top]
