CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, (PIA)--To update the existing data of the poorest households in the country, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)-10 targets to complete the assessment, validation and encoding of 856,959 families in the region for Listahanan 3 by the end of this year.
"Ang target nga mahuman ang assessement, validation ug encoding is by the end of this year. Mga 16.1 milion target sa tibuok Pilipinas, 856,959 families sa Region 10. Muabot na sa 892,815 ang naassess sa DSWD-10," Information Officer Charmaine Tadlas said during the NorMin COVID-19 Response Task Force Press Conference, October 13.
(The completion of assessment, validation and encoding is targeted by the end of this year. There are about 16.1 million target families in the Philippines of which 856,959 are targeted in Region 10. DSWD-10 has already assessed 892,815 families)
The information officer added that the enumerators will interview the head of the family to obtain their profile including their educational attainment and family situation.
The enumerator will also obtain information as to the members of the family who belong to the vulnerable sector such as the senior citizens, persons with disability, and solo parents.
For those who are not available during the assessment, Tadlas said the families could use the On Demand application and they will just wait for the date and time that will be scheduled by DSWD-10 for assessment.
Tadlas stressed that the On Demand app will only be available for use after the completion of the assessment, validation and encoding.
Even if the families are already included in the Listahanan 3, Tadlas said they are not automatically considered as beneficiaries of DSWD's social protection programs.
"Ang pag-generate sa data tumong makita kung kinsa ang pinakakabos, kung aha sila. I-share dayon ni sa local government units, national government agencies, ug civil society organizations kung duna sila'y mga social protection programs. Aron maka-identify sila sa potential beneficiaries," Tadlas added.
(The data generated will only determine the poorest households and where they are located. The data will be shared to local government units, national government agencies, and civil society organizations if ever they have social protection programs. So they can also identify their potential beneficiaries)
Listahan is an information management system that identifies who and where the poor are, making available a database of poor families as a reference in identifying potential beneficiaries of social protection programs. (RTP/PIA10)
