Building a Sanctuary beside an Estuary

Who in the world would think that building a garden in a highly urbanized place like Makati is possible? Tatay Dionisio Morales, a seventy-five-year-old solo parent who has a degree in Agriculture and a member of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program believed that the benefits of city-based agriculture go far beyond nutrition.

Residing near a creek located at Barangay Southside, Makati City that hosts several historical tourist sites like Philippine Army Museum and American Cemetery, Tatay Dionisio proved that there are no boundaries in urban gardening

Going to Tatay Dionisio’s garden is a challenge because you have to literally climb a fence right beside an estuary. However, once you see it you will be amazed by how passionate he is to raise fruits and vegetables of different kinds­­— gabi, ampalaya, malunggay, saging, patola, kamatis, talbos ng kamote, talong, sili, kangkong, sigarilyas, okra, sitaw, kamoteng kahoy, alugbati, pechay and saluyot.  “Hindi mo aakalaing nasa Makati ka,” shared by one of the visitors.

He is one of the Pantawid members who had undergone Kabalikat sa Kabuhayan (KSK) training by SM Foundation. The said training was organized by a church who also provided participants with a lot where they can temporarily use to plant. However, after a few months, they were informed that they need to vacate the area since it will be occupied soon. So Mang Dionisio had to think of other ways on how he will continue to grow his own plants.

“Habang pauwi ako noon sa bahay nakakita ako ng gabi. Doon ako nakaisip nang paraan kung paano ko ipagpapatuloy ang pagtatanim,” he narrates. He managed to borrow a knife and a sock of rice. He then took ten (10) pieces of gabi and brought to his house. He believes that there is nothing to lose if he will try to grow this plant. When he arrived home, he immediately started to cultivate the side of the estero. He removed the unwanted plants and throw out all the trash he collected. After the cleaning, he started planting gabi.

After how many weeks of nurturing the plant, he noticed that the gabi leaves are already growing. He doubled his effort to maintain his mini garden. He thought that he can earn money by growing gabi and he was correct after all. He is now harvesting 2 socks of gabi leaves every harvest time. He asked help from his children to sell this leaves in public market. After spending a week in the public market, Tatay Dionisio was disheartened because no one is giving attention to his crops. He had no choice but to bargain it, instead of selling it for 200 pesos he sold it for 150 pesos.

Tatay Dionisio felt loss because of bargaining his crops. But he did not give up; instead it served as a lesson and motivation for him to continue his gardening activities. He is a member of Dating Daan, a religious radio and television program in the Philippines produced by the Members of the Church of God International. He grabbed the opportunity to promote and sell his produce to his church companions.

He decided to sell it for twenty pesos per bundle. Dionisio felt glad because of the positive response from the consumers. There is also a particular eatery where he supplies gabi leaves.  His income serves as his means to purchase other seeds that can be added to his garden. As a way of giving back, he also shares some of his harvested crops to his neighbors.

Tatay Dionisio finds gardening helpful since it provides him with a source of income and a venue to apply what he learned from his Agriculture degree. He also expressed his sentiments during the beginning, “Hindi madaling magtanim kapag hindi mapag mahal sa kapaligiran ang mga nakatira sa paligid mo.”  But it did not stop Tatay Dionisio to continue his passion. He believes that nurturing the environment can help reduce the pollution and make the surrounding a better place to live in.

I Survive (The Story of Ma. Antonieth Cipriano )

Ms. Cipriano (in yellow shirt) gamely poses for a picture with her children

I survive, kahit walang sumusuporta sa akin, pinansyal, emosyonal, made-depress ka pag hindi ka stable.”  Ms. Ma. Antonieth Cipriano became a beneficiary of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program and now a proud mother after overcoming the challenges of being a solo parent dealing with the reality of poverty in our country.


Ms. Cipriano resides at Kaunlaran Village, Navotas City, and a graduate of B.S Customs at Philippine Maritime Institute (PMI). Her educational attainment did not exempt her from the realities of poverty. She worked at a shipping company for seven (7) years and struggled to find a regular occupation from 2008-2012. Adding to the struggles of looking for a regular occupation are the challenges of being a solo parent. She is a solo parent for 17 years to her three (3) children Maria Renz Cipriano (21), Rallion Antonio Cipriano (18), and Rohan Cipriano (16) she described herself in this stage as a “Worrying Mother”, worrying about how she will raise her children and provide their daily needs most especially in the aspect of education. Due to financial difficulties, she openly shared that there were times where she asked her children to miss school for a day because she can’t afford to provide money for their school expenses. She also recalled the moment when she asked her eldest child to stop schooling for a while because it was the only solution she thought that time to alleviate their situation. In both cases, her children refused and cried at her, a moment that breaks her heart as a mother.


Ms. Ma. Antonieth became a member of Pantawid Pamilya for four (4) years and her two (2) younger children were her grantees. She immediately became a parent leader and according to her, Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program provided a lot of opportunities for their family. She highlighted the great contribution of the program in terms of developing self growth and awareness through Family Development Sessions. According to her, she learned a lot during seminars and trainings that she applies every day and uses her experiences as a former beneficiary to intervene to the current beneficiaries of the program as Social Welfare Assistant (SWA). The cash provision might be small but, it was a great help especially when you don’t have any source of income, she added. They lived at her parents’ house which is also at Navotas City and rented their previous house, they spend the rental payments for their daily necessities and budget the cash provided by the program on her children’s education. While a Pantawid Pamilya member, she applied for a part-time job at DSWD as SWDI enumerator and became part of the team that conducts targeting that time. She later applied for Social Welfare Assistant (SWA) position at DSWD-NCR. For four (4) years of being part of the program, it gives her the chance to fulfill her dreams for her children – finish their education. Thus, she spent the cash grants on her children’s education especially because she saw their determination to finish their studies. Because of the program, she learned to tap other possible source of services or link her children to those services that could help them especially in the aspect of medical and educational needs.

“Kase minsan madedepress ka pag nakita mo yung ibang nanay na solo parent hindi niya makitang matapos yung mga anak niya.” This became an inspiration for Ms. Ma. Antonieth to do her best in order for her children to finish their studies whatever it takes for the benefit of their future.

According to her, Family Development Sessions also contributed to her role as a solo parent mother for her children, she became aware of their rights and the different child and youth laws. Aside from that, it kept them busy on something productive and self-developing activities instead of wasting their time gossiping or playing bingo on their community, she added.


After being part of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, for almost four (4) years, Ms. Ma. Antonieth later on applied for a SWA position which is according to her was her own decision for her to continuously attend the needs of her family. She is now working as SWA of Operations Office 2 for two (2) years. Her biggest achievement is that she was able to have her eldest daughter finished her college years and is now working. Next year, her second child is about to finish his college years taking up Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education Major in Mathematics, while her youngest child still has a long way to go as a Grade 12 student.

When asked about her present job as a Social Welfare Assistant, she responds, “Mas maraming responsibility bilang SWA pero financially stable na, kinakaya ko na all by myself.” She described herself in this stage as a “Proud Mother” from the “Worrying Mother” she labeled herself before she became part of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program. The only thing that she still hope for is a stable job to still support her family, she now believe that whatever challenge or struggles that will come, “we will survive.”

Malasakit sa Kapwa, Malasakit sa Publiko

Hindi na bago sa isang ahensya na merong mga manggagawa na lumalabas ang pagka competitive para makamit ng mas mataas na grado sa kanilang performance evaluation at hindi din nakakagulat na mayroong mga kawani ng gobyerno na hindi lamang ang kanilang pang personal na evaluation ang iniisip kundi ang buong performance ng programa.

Isa sa mga kawani ng gobyerno na patunay dito ay si G. Carlo Sotto, isang City Link ng Regular Conditional Cash Transfer (RCCT) ng Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (Pantawid Pamilya) sa lungsod ng Caloocan. Siya ay tatlong taon na bilang City Link at siya ay kasalukuyang Assistant CAT Team Leader ng South Caloocan.

Naipakita ni G. Sotto sa pamamagitan ng kanyang paglikha ng isang sistema na naging benepisyal sa kanya, sa kanyang mga kasamahan at sa mga benepisyaryong hinahawakan. Ang sistemang ito ay kanyang nalikha dahil sa kanyang imahinasyon at sa kagustuhan nya na matiyak ang mga benepisyaryong nanganagilangan ng updating ay ang kanilang nabibigyan ng pansin at mapabilis ang proseso nito.

Ang sistemang kanyang nilikha ay ginamitan ni G. Sotto ng mga datos na ibinibigay ng kanyang Beneficiary Data Management (BDM) at Compliance Verification (CV) Coordinators na kanyang ipinagbangga upang maipalabas kung sinu-sino ang mga batang benepisyaryong nangangailangan ng updates upang sa gayon ang kanilang sambahayan ay makatanggap ng tamang grants at dahil din dito nabawasan ang paulit-ulit na pagsasaayos ng mga datos ng mga benepisyaryo.

Ang nilikhang ito ni G. Sotto ay kanyang ibinahagi sa kanyang mga kasamahan sa Operations Office 6 at ito ay nakatulong sa kanilang updating; itinuro ni G. Sotto ito sa kanyang mga kasamahan, kung paano gawin at ipinaintindi din nya sa mga kasamahan ang epekto at kahalagahan nito sa kanila bilang mga City Link, sa kanilang Operations Office at higit sa lahat sa kanilang mga benepisyaryo. Noong nakaraang General Assembly ng Pantawid Pamilya, nakamit ng kanilang Operations Office ang Highest Number of Updates on No School (MCCT and RCCT) isang patunay na naging epektibo ang ginawa ni G. Sotto.

Ibinahagi ng kanyang Area Coordinator at pinatotohanan ng kanyang Social Welfare Officer III ang determinasyon at ang makalingang karakter ni G. Sotto. Kanilang ibinahagi na maliban sa pagkilala sa kanya bilang isa sa mga Best City Link at isa sa Top 10 sa retooling exam noong General Assembly ng Pantawid Pamilya ay kinilala din siya ng kanilang Operations Office bilang Most Innovative Staff. Naibahagi din ng kanyang BDM Coordinator ang sipag at angkin galing ni G. Sotto sa pagkilala ng kanyang mga datos at kung ano ang dapat gawin dito. Ibinahagi din nila na hindi madamot si G. Sotto sa kanyang kaalaman, sa makatuwid ay kapag merong nagugulumihanan sa kanyang mga kasamahan, siya ang matyagang nagpapaliwanag ng mga maaaring at pwedeng gawin na naaayon sa mga polisiya at guidelines ng programa.

Ito ay nagpapakita na si G. Sotto ay isang kapuri-puring kawani ng gobyerno na handang maglingkod at tumulong sa bayan at sa mga kasamahan. Isa syang ehemplo na ang pagiging magaling ay hindi lamang masusukat sa mga puntos o grado na makikita sa evaluation, o sa galing na iyong ipinamamalas para sa iyong mga pinaglilingkuran. Ito ay makikita din sa kung paano ka makitungo sa mga kasamahan mo, isa itong patunay sa katagang, “isa para sa lahat at lahat para sa isa.” Higit sa lahat ay kanyang naipakita na tunay na maganda ang kabayaran na matatanggap ng isang tao na nagpapamalas ng serbisyong may malasakit sa kanyang pinaglilingkuran at sa kanyang mga kasamahan.

The Endless Running Game

Ang pagsuporta at pagboto po namin sa inyo ang nakikita naming paraan upang makabawi sa mga magagandang bagay na nagawa ninyo para sa amin.”

Those are the words that Ate Maria Theresa Sapida, Pantawid Pamilya member and a former parent leader, will perhaps never forget when she came up with the brave intent to run for 2018 barangay election. The words many not be long nor dramatic but unexpectedly yet powerfully struck Ate Tess like lightning in the middle of the summer.

Running for life, Ate Tess presently takes care of grandchildren Stephanie, 11 year-old; Sophia, 10 year-old; Rhian, 8 year-old; Saicy, 4 year-old and Samcy, 3 year-old who all, as she describes, are the best thing that happened to her life. Through working as barangay tanod, she receives allowance that helps the family address its daily need. Ate Tess uses received cash grants in attending to school needs of Stephanie (the only monitored child in roster) and other grandchildren and in purchasing food especially rice for the family. For quite some time, they’ve been living on the same roof with some of their relatives of deceased spouse who happen to own the house—probably the cracks and rocks along the race road Ate Tess has to deal with every day for the owners always demands them to leave the house. Ate Tess, in an interview, tearfully confessed how the owner treats them—how they make Ate Tess feel inferior or out-of-place. Bravely though, Ate Tess said, “Kailangan kong maging matatag dahil walang maitutulong kung panghihinaan ako ng loob. Kailangang matutong makibaka kahit na masakit pa. Kailangan na maging matapang sa bawat unos ng buhay kaya sa ngayon kailangan magtiis na muna.”

Running from the past that haunts Ate Tess, she recalled how life had been harsh to them before the Pantawid Pamilya came recounting even the difficulty in borrowing even 50 php just to feed the stomach of hungry family and added that before, kamote used to be the family’s breakfast, lunch and dinner. Before, Ate Tess even lied to spouse before just to cover acceptance of different ‘raket’ particularly doing laundry and ironing for other people just so the family can live for a day or two. Luckily, life gave them the opportunity which probably its compensation to all the bitter things that happened to them, they have been part of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program. Ate Tess fulfilled the obligations of a Parent Leader with no hesitation that served as a way to earn the respect and trust of the community.

Ang Pantawid ang nagturo at gumabay sa akin upang maging isang lider. Kung wala ito, baka hanggang ngayon ay mailap pa rin ako sa tao. Minahal ko ang aking mga ka-miyembro. Ang Programa ay tinulungan din ako na bumuo ng isa pang pamilya na pinagbubuklod din ng pagtutulungan at pagmamahalan.”

Running for change, Ate Tess independently filed candidacy and ran as Kagawad of Barangay 161. According to co-members,“Ang pagsuporta at pagboto po namin sa inyo ay nakikita naming paraan upang makabawi at tumanaw ng utang na loob sa mga magagandang bagay na nagawa ninyo para sa amin.” It served as Ate Tess’s motivation and she won. When asked about her plans for the barangay, Kagawad Tess wants to initiate feeding program in the barangay’s day care center, start children and youth-centered activities and intensify services for the elderly. On leadership, Kagawad Tess stated, “Para ata akong hinabol ng pagka-lider na na-develop sa akin noong ako ay naging Parent Leader sa ilalim ng Pantawid Pamilya. Basta gusto kong matulungan ang lahat ng nangangailangan mapa-miyembro man sila ng programa o hindi.”

Kagawad Tess selflessly talked about her goal in life—to own a house and live a simple life with her loved ones.

Running with Pantawid Pamilya, Ate Tess, whose life has been touched by the program in countless ways proves again that no one is alone in any race. Cash grants may be enough to solve every problem that one faces in the world but sure enough, the Program will never get tired to act as a running shoes for the member beneficiaries in aiding them win the run of their lives.

“Kayod Para sa Pamilya” (Istorya ni Fe C. Mahinay)

(L-R) Nanay Fe at Tatay Lino Mahinay at ang mga letratonang kanilang mga anak na nakapagtapos sa kolehiyo at sekundurya

Ito ay kwento ng isang pamilya na patuloy na nagsusumikap para makamit ang kanilang mga pangarap para sa kanilang mga anak, sarili at komunidad.

Si Nanay Fe Mahinay dating Parent Leader ng Programa, limangput limang (55) taong gulang, kasal kay Ginoong Tatalino Salvador Mahinay Jr., limangput-apat (54) na taong gulang naninirahan sa Blk 10 #14 Sitaw Street Tumana, Markina City. Sila ay may labing-isang (11) anak, apat (4) na lalake at pitong (7) babae.

Kanyang isinalarawan ang kanilang buhay noon bago sila naging miyembro ng Pantawid Pamilya Pilipino Program. “Mahirap na, Magulo pa” kanyang mga sinambit, bukod sa siya ay walang maayos na trabaho at lahat ng kanyang mga anak ay kanilang kinakayod mag asawa para lamang makapag-aral. Naghihikahos din sila noon sa pang araw-araw na pagkain, pambaon, at gastusin sa bahay. Ang kanyang asawa ay umeekstra bilang electrisista at construction worker habang si Nanay Fe ay dumidiskarte sa paggawa ng pulseras, kwintas at hikaw na kanyang nilalako sa kanilang lugar. Nagtitinda rin siya ng biskwit at mga damit, kanya ring inihayag na dati siyang naglalaro ng huweteng at bingo. Ayon kay Nanay Fe, buhat nang sila ay naging miyembro ng programa noong 2012, nagbago ang kanyang pananaw sa buhay. Kanyang binibigyang diin na ang Family Development Sessions ay isa sa mga dahilan kung bakit naging maganda ang relasyon nilang mag asawa na mas lalong pinagtibay ng bukas na komunikasyon sa kanilang pamilya. Gayundin ang kanilang mga anak ay nagbahagi ng kanilang mga natutunan sa pagdalo ng mga Youth Sessions at iba pang aktibidades ng programa. Aktibo rin si Nanay Fe sa kanilang komunidad, kabilang siya sa Anahaw Neighborhood Association sa kanilng lugar, kung saan siya ay isa sa mga opisyal. Ang kanilang samahan ay tumutulong sa mga pamilya tulad ng pag-aayos ng away mag asawa at mga aktibidad sa kanilang barangay.  Naibabahagi niya rin sa kapwa miyembro ang mga aral at karanasang natutunan noong siya ay Parent Leader ng programa.

Sa ngayon, ang kanyang mga anak ay mayroong maayos na trabaho. Ang kanyang panganay ay nakapagtapos ng kolehiyo sa kursong Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) at namamasukan sa opisina ng SM Mall. Ang isa sa kanyang anak na noo’y benepisyaryo ay nagtapos ng dalawang taong kurso sa TESDA na nakapag trabaho, dahil sa tulong ng mga CSO partners ng programa bilang elektrisista, habang ang kanyang dalawang anak na naging benepisyaryo rin ng programa ay nag-aaral sa kolehiyo. Ibinahagi rin ni Nanay Fe ang isa sa kanyang mga anak na nakatira sa laguna ay nakabili ng bahay at lupa para sa kanilang pamilya. Dagdag pa niya na ang iba pa nilang anak ay may maayos na trabaho at patuloy na sumusuporta.

Patuloy na nangangarap si Nanay Fe at si Tatay Lino na lahat ng kanilang mga anak ay makapagtapos ng pag-aaral at magkaroon ng maayos na pamumuhay. Pangarap din nilang magasawa na magkaroon ng sariling tricycle para dagdag kita sa pamilya. “Lahat ito ay aming makakamit sa patuloy na pagtutulungan namin, hindi kami magsasawang gumabay sa aming mga anak at magsumikap” Mensahe para sa mga kapwa pantawid pamilya miyembro “Mag sumikap at pahalagahan ang biyaya na binigay ng programa” – Nanay Fe

Mensahe ni Nanay Fe sa Pantawid Pamilya Pilipino Program “Sa mga Pamunuan, Kami po ay buong pusong nagpapasalamat sa inyo sa paglunsad nyo po sa programang ito, ang Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program. Ito po ay isang napakaganda at napakamakabuluhang programa para sa aming mga maralitang mamamayang Pilipino. Asahan nyo po na itoy taus-puso po naming pahahalagahan at pangangalagaan sampu ng aming pamilya. Ipinapanalangin po naming na sana po lalo pa po ninyong paigtingin at palawakin ang ganitong programa dahil sa ito po ay napakalaking tulong din para sa ekonomiya at pangakabuhayan naming mga mahihirap. Maraming salamat din po sa mga katuwang ng DSWD sa programang ito, sa tulong po nila ay lalo pang lumakas ang programang ito upang masugpo ang malnutrisyon at maiangat ang antas ng edukasyon at pagilan ang paghihirap. Itinatanaw po naming itong isang napakagandang biyaya para sa aming mga mahihirap. Ito’y isang napakagandang pangitain tungo sa magandang bukas ng aming mga anak kasihan nawa kayo ng ating mahal na Poong Maykapal sa mga programang inilulunsad ninyo at ilulunsod niyo pa. Maraming maraming salamat po”. – Fe C. Mahinay Parent Leader.

Patuloy na nagsusumikap at nangangarap ang pamilyang Mahinay tungo sa pagtawid sa mga pagsubok sa buhay. Patunay sila ng isang pamilyang kayang magbago, matatag, masipag at kayang harapin at pagtagumpayan ang mga hamon ng buhay. Ang Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program ay isa lamang instrumento para sa mamayang Pilipino upang tugunan ang kahirapan sa edukasyon at pangkalusugan tungo sa maunlad na bayan.
