Gawad Listahanan aims to give recognition to LGUs for providing services and assistance to poor families identified in the database. Further, it aims to promote the convergence of all social protection stakeholders to effectively address the different aspects of poverty.

Pandan was selected as the official entry of the DSWD Field Office V after deliberation and screening were held last week.

The town was chosen for its compliance with the data-sharing agreement with the DSWD. Among several LGUs in Bicol, Pandan also registered the most number of beneficiaries for their locally-funded programs based on the Listahanan database of poor households.

Pandan Mayor Joseph Al Randie Wong said in his testimony that the use of Listahanan as a database for the implantation of programs, projects and activities is very useful to LGUs.

Said database accurately and correctly provides the information needed for comprehensive, complete, substantial, and honest public service, Wong said.

LGU Pandan used Listahanan for the implementation various programs. Among these were Aid to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS), Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP), and supplemental feeding.

Other Bicol municipalities which submitted entries for the regional screening were Presentacion, Camarines Sur and Sto. Domingo, Albay.


The national awarding will be held in January.—With report from DSWD / BICOLSTANDARD.COM
