Fight against hunger and poverty

WEB R5 PAHP manila conference 3RUpdates on the challenges met and the lessons learned in the implementation of the Partnership Against Hunger and Poverty (PAHP) project in Camarines Sur was presented recently to officials of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), Department of Agriculture (DA) and Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

In an echo session held at the DSWD central office in Quezon City, Rep. Leni Robredo of the 3rd District of Camarines Sur, presented before the three government agencies the lessons learned and challenges facing the pilot implementation of the PAHP.

PHAP is a collaborative effort between the DSWD, DAR and the DA which aims to engage poor households and work closely with the rural communities to provide needed social and economic services toward eliminating hunger and alleviating poverty in the countryside.

This collaborative multi-stakeholder program will target the creation of a community food hub (a localized version of Brazil’s community food banks) to serve as a facility that can store food items for the various feeding programs of the DSWD and other similar on-the-ground programs of other agencies like the education, health, and local government departments.

Local smallholder farmers will be tasked to ensure a steady food supply for various feeding programs. Because community food hubs will be used, partner beneficiaries will be empowered to become economically sustainable. This will ultimately benefit their families and communities.

Present were DSWD Secretary Dinky Soliman, DAR Secretary Gil de los Reyes, and other regional and national officials of the 3 departments. (GCBuensalida)
