Salceda sets aside P1.8-B to modernize Bicol hospital

By Rhaydz Barcia

LEGAZPI CITY -- Albay 2nd District Rep. Joey Salceda has allocated PHP1.8 billion for the modernization of the Bicol Regional Training and Teaching Hospital (BRTTH) in the next three years.

“We’re envisioning the Bicol Regional Training and Teaching Hospital to be the PGH (Philippine General Hospital) of the south, equipped with modern facilities to cater to the needs of Bicolanos,” he said during the centennial anniversary of the hospital on Tuesday.

Salceda said the amount will be used for the construction of a five-storey building with 600 beds.

The solon considers the BRTTH as a pillar of economic development, and is expecting an increase in the number of patients once the Bicol International Airport is fully operational in 2020.

“By 2020, which is the opening of the Bicol International Airport, your admission is expected to spike not only because BRTTH is the catchment area for medical services of neighboring provinces, including foreigners. We envision Bicol, specifically Albay province, as the California way of life in 2050, as a livable place,” Salceda said.

Dr. Rogelio Rivera, BRTTH chief of hospital, said the region’s first government hospital is preparing for the future to meet the global demand for better public health services.

“We’re heading to computerizing and developing (a) safer and green hospital in the country with water treatment sewage,” he said.

Rivera said BRTTH is the catchment area of Albay, Catanduanes, Masbate, Sorsogon, and other nearby provinces, and is catering to an increasing number of patients annually.

Aside from being the heart and cancer center, Rivera also said he hopes the BRTTH would become the region’s brain center to lure Bicolano medical specialists currently based in Manila to return to Bicol to serve the increasing number of patients in the area.

“The operation is very expensive but if the BRTTH will be the brain center, we can at least help minimize the expenses of the patients as they can no longer go to other hospitals for operation and treatment,” he added. (PNA)

100 teens attend DSWD’s youth forum on safer Internet usage

NAGA CITY—The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Region V convened more than 100 youths in the first youth forum on safer internet usage last May 18 at Prime Days Hotel and Restaurant.

Camarines Sur had notable cases involving online sexual exploitation of children. In 2016, there were four cases of child pornography recorded in the said province.

The said forum aims to mitigate child pornography by educating minors about online child safety. Teenagers were invited from 19 out of 27 barangays in Naga City to attend the one-day forum.

Julyka Mae Reola, 17, of Brgy. Mabolo, Naga City, is one of the youth attendees who said that the youth should be cautious when going online specially that they are frequent Facebook users.

“Kaipuhan na maprotektahan ang kabataan online dahil babad na kami sa cellphone. Kaipuhan mi na maaraman ang mga bagay na dapat iwasan sa paggamit ning internet at dapat limitahan ang oras ning pag gamit ning gadgets (We need to protect the youth online because we are exposed to cellphones. We need to educate ourselves on how to avoid abuses online and should limit our gadget usage),” Reola added.

The following topics were discussed during the forum: Social Media and Internet Safety Rules Against Online Sexual Exploitation of Children, Legal Basis and Procedures, Salient Points of Laws and Policies Related to Online Child Abuse, Legal process from reporting to conviction and the Digital Landscape in the Philippines and Globally.

Subsequently, a workshop was facilitated to solicit answers from the participants on what makes them feel unsafe online and how they can make the internet a safe space for children.

On the other hand, anyone can file a complaint against child pornography who can directly seek immediate assistance from their nearest local social welfare and development offices (LSWDOs) or report to Philippine National Police (PNP) Women and Children Protection Center (WCPC).

Moreover, victims of child pornography can access the mandatory services from different government agencies, namely, emergency shelter or appropriate housing, free legal and counselling services, medical or psychological services, livelihood and skill training; and educational assistance.

Under the Republic Act No. 9775 or the Anti-Child Pornography Act of 2009 perpetrators are penalized with a life sentence or a fine up to five million pesos if proven guilty of child pornography.

Child pornography refers to any representation, whether visual, audio, or written combination thereof, by electronic, mechanical, digital, optical, magnetic or any other means, of child engaged or involved in real or simulated explicit sexual activities.

DILG challenges LGUs, elevates SGLG assessment criteria anew

All or nothing.

This is the challenge posed by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) to local government units (LGUs) as it raised the bar of the Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG) criteria a notch higher for 2018.

DILG OIC-Secretary Eduardo M. Ano says that the new "All-in" assessment criteria of SGLG is another innovation that is expected to demonstrate positive results from LGUs further pushing the Department's objective for excellence and continuous improvement of local governance.

"Engaging and challenging LGUs to elevate their performance is one way of ensuring that we are fulfilling our mandate of serving the people. SGLG will continue to usher in new tools to ensure that we push LGUs for the benefit of the Filipino people," says Ano.

According to the DILG Chief, unlike the '4+1' assessment criteria last year where LGUs are only required to pass four core areas and at least one essential area, SGLG 2018 presents a more challenging requisite of hitting the minimum criteria in SGLG's seven governance areas.

These core areas are Financial Administration; Disaster Preparedness; Social Protection; Peace and Order; Business Friendliness and Competitiveness; Environmental Protection; and Tourism Culture and the Arts.

The LGU also has to demonstrate positive result out of its reform efforts taking into account local leadership and the cohesive action of the entire workforce.

He also added that for a province to qualify, 10% of the total number of cities and municipalities under its jurisdiction must pass the SGLG as well.

"It may be daunting for some, from 4+1 now it's all 7 core areas that they need to pass, but this should not dampen their spirits, on the contrary, it should inspire our local chief executives to outperform themselves and keep improving," he said.

Deserving SGLG recipients from the 81 provinces, 145 cities and 1489 municipalities will be conferred with the 2018 SGLG marker; eligibility to the Performance Challenge Fund (PCF) to finance their local development initiatives; and an access to other programs and capacity development assistance from DILG.

LGUs which will meet the '4+1' basic assessment principle shall also be recognized through a Certificate of Merit for their efforts in keeping up with the previous overall criteria.

In 2017, 448 LGUs composed of 28 provinces, 61 cities and 359 municipalities bagged the SGLG award, a 31% increase compared to 2016's 306 passers.

The SGLG Assessment kicked off on the 3rd week of April 2018 and will run for six months until the announcement of winners on October 2018.

New, upgraded criteria

In addition to the requirements in SGLG 2017, the new and upgraded criteria in the 2018 SGLG are the following:

On Financial Administration, the most recent audit opinion is unqualified or qualified plus 30 percent of recommendations acted upon; at least 5 percent increase in average local revenue growth for the last three consecutive years (2014-2016); functional local development council; full utilization of, or completion or projects funded by the Performance Challenge Fund (2015 and 2016), if applicable; 2018 annual budget is approved within the prescribed period; and full utilization of funds for, or completion of Assistance to Municipalities projects for 2012-2015, if applicable with 85% benchmark for 2016 (for municipalities).

On Disaster Preparedness, there must be at least three plantilla PDRRMO/CDRRMO staff complement for provincial and HUC qualifiers, one plantilla for independent component cities (ICCs) and component cities (CCs) and municipalities qualifiers for research and planning, administration and training, and operations and warning; at least 50% utilization rate of the 70% component of the 2017 DRRM Fund; at least 75% of barangays have CBDRRM plans (for cities); at least 75% of barangays have info guide (for municipalities); ICS Training Level II or above for provinces/HUCs, and Basic ICS training for ICCs and CCs.

On Social Protection, city qualifiers should be 2017 Seal of Child-friendly Local Governance Awardees; at least 85% completion or utilization rate of the fund for the Local School Board Plan; at least 80% of barangays have submitted their Violence Against Women and Children (VAWC) reports (for cities and municipalities); at least 50% of provincial/city government-run hospitals are 2017 Philhealth-accredited; established Persons with Disability Affairs Office for provinces and HUCs, and designated a persons with disability affairs officer ICCs, CCs and municipalities; for cities and municipalities, full utilization of funds for, or completion of Salintubig projects for 2012-2015, if applicable with 50% benchmark for 2016.

On Peace and Order, there should be at least 75% implementation rate of planned activities, or at least 75% utilization rate of fund allocation for peace and order and public safety plan; for cities and municipalities, 100% organized and 100% trained barangay peacekeeping action teams.

On Business Friendliness and Competitiveness, there should be at least 60% completion or utilization rate of Conditional Matching Grant to Provinces for Road Repair, Rehabilitation and Improvement for 2016 (for provinces); and increase in the amount of capital investments derived from registered new businesses (for cities).

On Environmental Management, no operating and/or controlled dumpsite (for cities and municipalities).

On Tourism, Culture and the Arts, among the new sub-indicators for cultural heritage promotion and conservation are at least 75% completion or utilization rate of the budget appropriated for the conservation and preservation of cultural property for CY 2017, and documented and published narrative of history and culture.

EDITORIAL | Brigada Eskwela: Contemporary Bayanihan

The word “bayanihan” often conjures the image of a group of men bearing the weight of a nipa hut on their shoulders to help the homeowners transfer to another location. While this is a romantic and nostalgic image, it appears anachronistic in this day and age when the practice, once commonplace, is now a rarity, especially in urban areas.

The spirit of bayanihan, however, has not died down, and instead transformed into other practices, such as volunteers braving floods and fires in aid of those stricken by calamities to the Brigada Eswkela, in which people from various sectors come together to prepare the school for the upcoming year.

Launched in 2003, the Brigada Eskwela became an annual activity, transforming the concept of bayanihan from something that was engaged in only by selected members of the community to something to which anyone may contribute. It updates the notion of bayanihan into something more fitting to the contemporary times with the inclusion of everyone regardless of class, age, or gender.

The Brigada Eskwela is solid proof that the community may unite against some of the challenges that beset Philippine education, such as rough blackboards or broken chairs, which distract learners and educators. And although it is not a panacea for the other concerns such as insufficient learning resources and inadequate training for teachers, it is, and thankfully so, a step in the right direction.

It is also a testament to the shared responsibility that all Filipinos have to improving education in our nation. Our role as Filipinos with regard to education is not limited to perennially pointing out the weaknesses of the system, but must also encompass a more proactive stance by involving ourselves into the solution of said weaknesses.

As the Brigada Eskwela kicks off this year, we urge everyone to do his or her part in contributing efforts to preparing the schools for the upcoming year. It is, after all, our moral responsibility not only to the academe but also to ourselves, to ensure that Philippine education is ameliorated.

Schools urged to emphasize lead safety in Brigada Eskwela

A waste and pollution watch group exhorted the country’s public elementary and secondary schools to make lead safety part of the annual Brigada Eskwela on May 28 to June 2.

In line with Department Order No. 4 issued by Education Secretary Leonor Briones in January 2017, the EcoWaste Coalition urged school heads to ensure full compliance to the “mandatory use of lead-safe paints in schools.”

DepEd issued the said order at the request of the EcoWaste Coalition, an advocate for lead-free school, to prevent and control children’s exposure to lead through the ingestion of lead-contaminated paint chip, dust and soil in the school environment.

In December 2017, Briones issued Department Order No. 64 detailing the minimum performance standards and specifications for DepEd school buildings. “Paints materials must be independently certified lead-safe paints/coatings,” according to the said order.

“We laud Education Secretary Briones for her steadfast commitment to promote a lead-safe school environment for Filipino children as contained in Department Orders 4 and 64, series of 2017. Strict compliance to these orders is crucial to stop the entry and use of lead-containing architectural, decorative and household (ADH) paints in all schools following the completion of the three-year phase-out for such paints last December 2016,” said Thony Dizon, Chemical Safety Campaigner, EcoWaste Coalition.

“The effective enforcement of these orders will also help in reducing the creation and dispersion of lead-tainted paint chip, dust and soil from the Brigada Eskwela school cleanup and renovation activities that children may ingest or inhale,” he added.

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, “the most common lead hazards in schools are lead-based paint, lead dust and contaminated soil.”

Exposure to lead can permanently damage the brain and the central nervous system, impair growth and development, and cause learning and behavioral problems, the EcoWaste Coalition warned.

“As there is no safe threshold for lead exposure, we need to pay serious attention on eliminating preventable lead pollution sources such as lead-containing paints in our homes, schools and communities,” Dizon said.

“D.O. 4-2017 is by far the most important lead poisoning prevention directive made by the DepEd complementing the Chemical Control Order for Lead and Lead Compounds issued by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources,” he said.

According to D.O. 4-2017, the use of independently certified lead-safe paints/coatings is mandatory to all painting and/or repainting works of school facilities, furniture, fixtures, learning materials and tools and equipment.

The said D.O. also applies to paint-coated goods or products directly procured by the school as well as those sourced by other means such as through individual, group, corporate or local government donations.

To drum up awareness and compliance to the ban on lead-containing ADH paints, the EcoWaste Coalition will distribute posters to Metro Manila schools announcing the phase-out of such paints.

During the week of the Brigada Eskwela, the EcoWaste Coalition will deploy a roving team targeting Quezon City schools to promote compliance to D.O. 4-2017.

SM launches 60th anniversary celebrations

SM launched its 60th Anniversary celebrations by lighting up the iconic Mall of Asia globe, and with it, starting off a series of exciting 60 themed visual attractions, fun experiences, and interactive activities for its customers from May to October in SM malls nationwide.

The SM story began in 1958 when founder Henry Sy, Sr. opened the first Shoemart store in downtown Manila, introducing exciting new merchandising and retailing concepts. At that time, Mr. Sy, who has been honored as the Father of Philippine Retail by the Philippine Retailers Association, thought that if he could sell a pair of shoes to every Filipino, he could be a successful man.

In the 1960s, Shoemart expanded its shoe store chain and became one of the pioneers in the new urban centers in Makati and Cubao.

In the seventies, Shoemart evolved into a department store, becoming SM, which has been synonymous with one-stop shopping excitement. SM positioned itself for growth in the 1980s, expanding its department store chain and venturing in the supermarket and appliance business.

1985 saw the opening of the first SM shopping center, SM City North EDSA. It was a time of a major political and economic crisis, but the mall was an instant success, paving way for the so-called malling phenomenon in the Philippines. Malls became part of the Filipino lifestyle, places where families and friends could shop together, dine together, and have fun together in world classurroundings.

Today, SM has close to a thousand retail stores, and 70 malls in the Philippines, and 7 malls in China.

Through its property arm, SM Prime Holdings, SM has also become a leading developer of residential condominiums in Metro Manila, where residents could live like a star at affordable prices.

Mr. Sy always believed in tourism as a catalyst, and with that, built destination malls like the SM Mall of Asia. Through SM Hotels and Conventions, the company now owns and operates world class hotels, a state of the art arena, convention and exhibition centers, and premier beach and mountain resorts.

In the finance area, the acquisition of Banco de Oro in the 1980s enabled SM to provide better cash management services to its suppliers and retail banking services to its customers. Today, as the country’s largest bank in terms of resources, deposits, and loans, BDO has made finance inclusive for millions of Filipinos.

Through SM Foundation, SM reaches out to communities with its educational, health, and livelihood training programs aimed at making farmers self-sufficient. Through SM Cares, SM has undertaken environmental programs by building green spaces in its malls, as well as sustainability efforts, trash to cash recycling, and disaster risk reduction programs. It has also make going around the malls easier for those with difficulties through PWD program.

Japan grants Sorsogon town P4.1-M fund for learning center

By Joyce Ann L. Rocamora

MANILA -- The Japanese government, through its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP), has provided a municipality in Sorsogon province a PHP4.1 million grant, it was learned Thursday.

According to the Japanese Embassy in Manila, the grant covers the construction of a two-storey, two-classroom learning center, with furniture and equipment, that would provide a proper and safe learning environment to approximately 950 students in Magallanes.

The town has a high incidence of drop-outs and out-of-school children, largely due to poverty.

To resolve the issue, the local government implemented an educational program called the Alternative Learning System (ALS).

However, the only available building to hold classes in is in poor condition, with its leaky ceiling expected to collapse anytime. It also lacks learning materials and training equipment, compromising the learning process and the safety of the students.

Last Tuesday, Manabu Yasukawa, the embassy's first secretary, attended the turnover ceremony on the “Construction of Community Learning Center in the Municipality of Magallanes, Sorsogon”.

The ceremony was also attended by Magallanes Mayor Augusto Manuel Ragragio, members of the Municipal Council, Department of Education Division Office officials, and the project’s beneficiaries.

An estimated 2,895 residents who are willing to avail of the free education program stand to benefit from the project once it is done.

Japan, as the country’s top Official Development Assistance donor, launched the GGP in 1989 for the purpose of reducing poverty and helping various communities engaged in grassroots activities.

At present, 533 grassroots projects have been implemented under the initiative. (PNA)

Namfrel seeks volunteers for May 14 polls

By Ferdinand Patinio
MANILA -- The National Movement for Free Elections (Namfrel) is looking for volunteers for the May 14 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections.

The election watchdog group, which was recently accredited by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) together with Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting as its citizens’ arm in next week’s polls, urged the people to take part in the poll activities.

“Namfrel has issued a general call for volunteers to observe the Barangay and SK elections this month,” the group said in an advisory.

Their work will involve observing in the barangay, where they are registered to vote. They are also required to commit to be non-partisan throughout the election process.

Volunteers will be guided by an observation manual for each step in the election process. They also need to fill out observation forms in the manual, and send back to Namfrel.

Those interested in becoming a volunteer observer should sign-up at

Applications will be accepted until Thursday. (PNA)

Salceda launches P100-M pilot tech-voc training program in Albay

MANILA -- Albay pilots this school year a PHP100-million technical-vocational training program under the newly implemented Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act (UAQTEA) or Republic Act 10931. The program, which targets 6,300 youth beneficiaries, focuses on the tech-voc aspect of the new law.

Albay Second District Rep. Joey Sarte Salceda, the principal author of RA 10931, recently launched the pilot program in Albay. He said the program aims to address the “diverse range of skills and learning styles” of his youth constituents, some of whom may not avail of the free four-year standard college courses. The pilot program targets some 8,300 student beneficiaries.

RA 10931, he explained, was designed to highlight not only the free four year college courses, but also technical-vocational education, which was not given equal focus previously, even with the Technical Vocational Education and Training or TVET program in effect.

He said his pilot program aims to improve, maximize and enhance the services of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) in Albay, the Daraga Human Resources Development College, the Daraga Community College — as pilot institutions — and later on all other accredited LGU-run tech- voc schools in the province, under the UAQTEA.

The lawmaker said his office has allocated 5,000 slots for Training for Work Scholarship (TWSP) with a budget of PHP25 million; and 1,500 slots for the Special Training for Employment Program (STEP), with PHP15 million, administered by TESDA. Another 1,800 slots will also be allocated by June, with a budget of P54 million for the free TVET under RA 10931.

Salceda said giving special attention to the tech-voc aspect of the UAQTEA will allow the country’s educational program to address the emerging global trend that seeks to bring back and revitalize technical-vocational training in schools. Citing recent findings on global educational trends, Salceda said the focus on vocational training is hinged on the fact “that people have a huge and diverse range of different skills and learning styles.”

An article published by Forbes Magazine titled Why We Desperately Need To Bring Back Vocational Training In Schools notes that “Not everyone is good at math, biology, history and other traditional subjects that characterize college-level work… And not everyone goes to college.”

The latest figures from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics show that only “about 68% of high school graduates (in the US) attend college; this implies that over 30% of them end up with neither academic nor job skills.” The same report said “almost 40% of students who begin four-year college programs don’t complete them, which translates into a whole lot of wasted time, wasted money, and burdensome student loan debts.” Salceda noted that the Philippines may share the same predicament, and free technical-vocational training would effectively address the issue.

Salceda formulated the UAQTEA based on the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education program he carried out when he was Albay governor for nine years before he returned to Congress in 2016. He subsequently filed the free college tuition bill that became RA 10931. Now Albay stands to benefit from that pioneering effort, with an initial batch of 30,000 enrollees under UAQTEA for the current school year. Of this number, about 17,000 will enroll in state universities and colleges (SUCs) and another 12,000 in local universities and colleges (LUCs).

“Free tuitions and miscellaneous fees in state-run universities and colleges, as well as TESDA-accredited technical vocational schools is no longer a dream. I am humbled to have been the principal author of its enabling law,” Salceda said.

There are 112 SUCs and 78 LUCs presently accredited by CHED and about 122 technical vocational institutions accredited by TESDA in the country. (Johnny Nuñez/PNA)
