BUTUAN CITY- Bislig City Mayor Librado Navarro, represented by City Administrator Charlito Lerog, testified how the Listahanan Database helped them in delivering their social protection programs to the poor in their locale.
This pronouncement was made during the launch of 2015 Listahanan Database of Poor families in Caraga on July 11, 2016 at Almont Hotel’s Inland Resort, here.
“The thrust of my administration is focused on Social Services and Social Protection more than any other programs because I strongly believe in investing on Human Capital and People Empowerment for a progressive com
munity,” mentioned Lerog.
“But we were faced with the problem on the identification and selection process of the true and genuine poor becaus
e of the lack of data. Until I was introduced to the DSWD’s Listahanan, a very comprehensive nationwide information management system that identifies who and where the poor are,” he added.
“Since then, Bislig City has been instituting and implementing programs that used the Listahanan in qualifying the beneficiaries,’’ Lerog concluded.
The NHTS-PR also known as Listahanan, is an information management system that identifies who and where the poor nationwide. It provides complete basic information on poor households who will become beneficiaries of the different anti-poverty programs and services. ###(ABEGAIL R.
