Calamaderas’ new haven

JAGNA – December 12, 2012 became a significant day in the history of the calamay industry. The blessing and installation of the Calamay Common Service Facility situated in Barangay Can-upao is a turning point to the age old calamay makers and vendors.

The Jagna Calamay Makers Multi Purpose Cooperative (JACAMACO) has partnered with the Local Government Unit of Jagna thru the GREAT Women Project and the Jagna Sustainable Microenterprise Development (JaSMeD) as well as other agencies to form the Jagna Calamay Convergence that envisions a dynamic, progressive and sustainable calamay industry that will produce and market premium quality calamay products utilizing standard production technology and local resources which will be managed by a strong industry organization.

The Jagna Calamay Convergence envisioned for a common service facility that will produce premium quality calamay to be operationalized by the JACAMACO. This idea was initially worked on as a result of the Gender Responsive Economic Actions for the Transformation (GREAT) Women Project from 2009-2013 of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) in partnership with the Local Government Unit of Jagna. The convergence strategy will ensure the steady provision of technical/technology expertise, financial assistance, capital, market linkage and promotions. The composition of the Jagna Calamay Convergence includes the Municipality of Jagna, Province of Bohol (thru the offices of the Governor and Provincial Agriculturist), Office of the Cong.

The vision was realized with the construction of the Calamay Common Service Facility that housed all the equipment needed to modernized the production of the calamay. The Calamay Common Service Facility is only 75% completed but the equipment is already ready for utilization. The JACAMACO and the Technical Working Group of the GREAT Women Project decided to hold the blessing and installation since the facility is already up and running.

Guests attended the event with Deputy Executive Director of PCW Ms. Manuela Silva and PCW Project Monitoring Officer Khaleen Sasuman; Mr. Billy Tongco, representative of the Honorable Governor Edgar M. Chatto; Ms. Ann Piquero Dy, representative of Congressman Arthur Yap; Mr. John Paul Nistal of the DOLE; Mr. Jerome Gabin of the DTI; the Municipal Technical Working Group (MTWG) of GWP Balilihan; MLGOO Judy Grace Dominguez together with Mayor Fortunato R. Abrenilla, municipal councilors and MTWG Focal Person Hon. Nimfa A. Lloren of Jagna; Barangay Council of Can-upao and JACAMACO members.

After the blessing was the unveiling of the CSF Marker at the common service facility. Ms. Nimfa Lloren gave the rationale of the event pressing on the achievement of the MTWG-GWP of Jagna to realize the dream amidst the challenges along the way. She emphasized that the building symbolizes so many things – a hallmark, a partnership for a common cause, a group enterprise. She also pointed out that because of the convergence, the CSF is assured of a market outside of Jagna.

Preparedness saves the day

Abrenilla on 4Ps and targets

Atty. Fortunato R. Abrenilla local chief of the town of Jagna expressed his impression on the 4Ps program of the national government during the ceremonial signing of the memorandum of agreement between the Department of Social Welfare and Development – 7 (DSWD-7) and local chief executive from 24 LGUs in Cebu, Bohol and Siquijor covered by Set 6 of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program on November 29, 2012 held at the Bohol Tropics Resort this city.

In his impression, Mayor Abrenilla talked on the background of the project being a replicated project launched originally in Africa and the Latin American countries. In the Philippines, 4Ps started with 760,357 household beneficiaries but coverage expanded to 3.1M within 2 years from its initial implementation. In February of 2012, the number of registered beneficiaries reached 3M and for 2013, a target of 3.8M household beneficiaries will be targeted.

According to Abrenilla, the program is “hitting six birds with one stone”. His enumeration of the sectoral beneficiaries included education which accordingly improved attendance to 4.57M students were no longer absentees in school because of poverty. He said that there is an increase or an improvement attendance rate. This improvement is addressing the issue on Education for All (EFA).

Next beneficiary in the list is the health sector. Abrenilla gave statistics that there were 1,672,977 mothers who are availing of regular medical check-up for pre natal and post natal. There are 1,672,814 children vaccinated against diarrhea, polio, tigdas, etc.

Money to buy food, school supplies is available which answers some issues on poverty. Abrenilla said statistics show that there is a steady decline on poverty incidence.

Automatic membership to the PHILHEALTH ensures coverage on such sickness as dengue, pneumonia, asthma, cataract and even catastrophic diseases as breast cancer, prostate cancer and acute leukemia. There are 5.2M households benefited based on the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR) and no balance billing in government hospitals.

The fifth sectoral beneficiary of the 4Ps according to the local chief executive is the economy. He said that the economy will improve. His example centered in his locality of Jagna wherein the 1,109 beneficiaries will derive Php 1.4M per month or roughly Php16.8M per annum which will be injected into the local economy. This is saying that the 4Ps will pump-prime the local economy. He added that with the Php 44 billion of the program out into the economic system of the nation, the national economy will boost.

His last on the list of benefitted sectors is employment. Abrenilla said that the 4Ps will promote employment. He mentioned that the 4Ps is not a manaah from heaven. The parents have to work to attend to the needs of their children on education and health. Besides, this 4Ps program has deployed 30,801 nurses and midwives under the RN Health Program.

The mayor who is a former National Economic Development Authority director said that the LGUs are fully coveted to the program. He said that vis-à-vis national programs, this is the program that aptly describes the saying “invest money where the mouth is”. Finally, a pro in planning for national programs, Mayor Abrenilla parted with “a healthy and educated populace will help spur the development of the country”.

The MOA signing and turn-over of the National Household Targeting System-PR to Governor Edgar M. Chatto was the highlight of the day’s activity.

Mayor Richard Quezon of Siquijor, Siquijor gave his impression of the 4Ps.

Honored guests for the activity were Mr. Wadel Cabrera III, national deputy project manager of the 4Ps representing Secretary Dinky Soliman of the DSWD. He was with DSWD-7 Asst. Regional Director for Operations Nemia Antipala. Governor Edgar M. Chatto and Cong. Erico Aumentado and the 24 local chief executives were in attendance to this activity.
