The CCT program
'Conditional cash transfers (CCT) are a stepping stone to universal health coverage, not just help for individual families'. CCT program gives cash transfers to poor families, provided, among other things, that pregnant household members seek antenatal care and a health professional delivers the baby. It requires that children aged 5 years and younger are immunized and monitored in case of malnutrition, and that children aged 6 to 14 are dewormed twice a year. More than just granting cash, the program intends to break the vicious intergenerational nature of poverty.

The new street-homeless are everywhere – in the streets, on sidewalks, along the seawall of Manila Bay, and outside idle lands, abandoned buildings – as ubiquitous as their dirty laundry, left to hang dry, in full view of the public eye.
The skyline of Metro Manila is rising. The construction of high-rise residential condominiums is in full swing. Real estate is again booming.
But homelessness is ironically increasing, too. Metro Manila holds the dubious record of having the largest homeless population than any other city in the world. Over 3 million, or one-fourth of the total urban population in Metro Manila, are living in informal settlements.

Nine-year-old Daniel Cabrera keeps a rosary in his school bag to protect his lone pencil from thieves
When asked, the Grade 3 student from the Subangdaku Elementary School in Mandaue City said he owned only one pencil. Daniel said his last one was stolen by a fellow student before. “It (rosary) is to prevent my only pencil from getting stolen,” Daniel said in Cebuano.
When asked, he said the only school material he lacked was a drawing book. He's waiting until his mother could afford to buy him one.

Bgy. 649, Baseco Compound, Port Area Manila

The urban poor are one of the most vulnerable sectors of society. With a society giving them no choice but to live in small, over crowded spaces, homes they can only afford to be built w/ light materials, fires like this famous BASECO fire in 2004 can crush anyone's spirit. Thanks to groups like ZOTO and Save the Children which try to bring emergency relief in these times of need.

Paracale's mountain of gold

by/George P. Moya Oct 25, 2014

In the village of Maning, in Paracale, Camarines Norte, a network of pits and tunnels snake their way under a mountain, where thousands of people go everyday to search for gold. The area has around 400 mining pits in operation, up from just 20 in June 2014, but since a 7-kg. high-grade gold was found there, the number was dramatically increased to 400. Here, miners risk their lives daily to look for the precious metal, their ticket out of poverty.

The toll: destruction of nature, and even death.

Water, water everywhere: The irony of Artex

Life in the compound is idyllic. The afternoon sun casts a golden glow on the homes as a gentle breeze cools the surroundings.

There is only one problem: The entire compound is permanently flooded. Ironically, the 200 families living there do not have direct access to clean water. They have to row boats to get their daily water supply.

Look the full story HERE


Why Artex Compound is called 'Venice of the Philippines'

Thirty years ago, the Artex Compound in Barangay Panghulo, Malabon was a thriving community of laborers working for the Artex Yupangco Textile Mills Corporation, living together with their families. When the workers staged a strike in 1984 because of low wages, the company fought back claiming their low pay was compensated by free housing. After a long legal battle, the company decided to close down in 1989, but the workers decided to stay, claiming the property as theirs.

Landownership problem and control of resources remains as a political development issue in the Philippines. Agrarian reform is a necessary condition for agricultural modernization and rural industrialization and the fundamental mooring for global competition. Agrarian Reform has contributed to improvement of the socio-economic conditions of landless farmers and political development of the Philippines in terms of engaging the landless in the process of policy making and distribution of large private landholdings to the landless. Modalities giving peasants a stake in society such as decisive role in agrarian legislations, engaging them in dialogue to resolve agrarian cases, presenting manifesto pinpointing their criticisms and recommendations on implementing rules and guidelines, identification of farmer beneficiaries and lands to be covered, negotiation on the mode of land acquisition and distribution and computation of land values, have significantly influence the process of democratization and establishment of participatory institutions at the local and national levels.

Saving a Fishery and Coral Reef - Apo Island

In a remote fishing village in the Philippine archipelago, coastal fishers responded to falling fish stocks by working harder to catch them. The combination of dynamite, longer workdays, and more advanced gear caused stocks to fall faster. On the edge of crisis, this small community decided to create a no-take marine sanctuary on 10% of its coral-reef fishing grounds. This initiative sparked a renaissance of not only their fishery, but also their cherished way of life.
