PIA Press Release

Kalinga ECCD projects evaluated

by Larry Lopez

TABUK, Kalinga (23 April) -- Representatives from the National Council for Welfare of Children and Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) - Cordillera in town to evaluate on-going projects under the Early Childhood Care & Development (ECCD) program.

ECCD Provincial Coordinator Salvacion Babate said projects evaluated are the on-going civil works components, which provided funds for upgrading of barangay health stations and rehabilitation of day care centers.

Babate said the civil work component of ECCD, which has the bulk in funding appropriation, is programmed in all eight towns of the province with three pilot barangays per town.

Of the 24 barangay health station projects, 12 have been completed, while 12 are still on-going. Of the 24 barangay day care center projects, 8 are completed, 6 on-going, while 10 are not yet implemented.

Babate explained why some barangays have not yet implemented their day care center projects saying those who were awarded earlier have not yet submitted their liquidation.

Head office does not release the remaining funds, unless earlier releases are liquidated, Babate said.

The team is supposed to do the evaluation and monitoring provincewide, but because of time constraint, only the towns of Tabuk, Rizal and Pinukpuk can be visited this time, leaving the other areas to the local team organized, Babate said.

Government started the three -year ECCD program in Kalinga in October 2005, and is expected to be completed in October 2008.

Among the first ECCD program areas in the country, Kalinga got a total fund of P20.625M. 80% of the amount is provided by the NCWC, and 20% was the province's counterpart. (PIA Kalinga) [top]
