BUTUAN CITY– The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Field Office Caraga officially launched today the Larawan 3.0, the official compendium of success stories of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program in the region.
This year’s version highlights the story of the Manobo Tribe in San Miguel, Surigao del Sur, being one of the largest Indigenous Peoples (IP) groups in Caraga. The aforementioned tribe is a partner-beneficiary of the Modified Conditional Cash Transfer for Indigenous People in Geographically Isolated and Disadvantaged Areas (MCCT-IP in GIDAs).
“For years now, we have been maximizing our convergence strategy to ensure that the level of well-being of all our Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program partner-beneficiaries especially the IP are improved from survival to subsistence and from subsistence to self-sufficiency,” said OIC Regional Director Mita Chuchi Gupana-Lim.
“This compendium aims to share a portion of the success that our partner-beneficiaries have earned through the intervention of the program,” added Lim.
In the late part of the Monday convocation for the month of May, the compendium was launched by OIC RD Lim, Assistant Regional Director for Administration Nerisa T. Murih and General Administration and Support Services Division Chief Ramel F. Jamen.
After the launching, copies of compendium will be distributed to the Municipal/City Local Government Units, Provincial Local Government Units, partner-agencies and DSWD Field Offices nationwide###RyanMalbasTapayan/SocialMarketingUnit/DSWDFieldOfficeCaraga###
