CBR in the Philippines: Current State of "Propagation"

  1. 1. Community-Based Rehabilitation Current State of CBR Propagation in the Philippines
  2. 2. Terminology • prop·a·gate [próppə gàyt] verb • 1. BIOLOGY reproduce organism: to reproduce a plant or animal, or cause one to reproduce • 2. GARDENING create new plants: to multiply plants by the use of seeds or cuttings • 3. spread something widely: to spread an idea or custom to many people • 4. impel something forward: to move or transmit something such as a sound or light wave forward through a medium such as air
  3. 3. How far has the idea of CBR spread across the country?
  4. 4. What mediums have been used and are being used to transmit CBR forward in the country?
  5. 5. Quick Facts • We have: 17 regions 80 provinces 122 cities 1,512 municipalities 42,025 barangays
  6. 6. “Mediums” transmitting CBR? • National government bodies (e.g. NCDA) • Regional government bodies (e.g. RCDAs) • Local Government Units • Government run/Initiated POs (GRIPOs)1 • Genuine, Autonomous POs (GUAPOS) • Development, Justice & Advocacy NGOs (DJANGOs) • Traditional Charitable, Welfare & Relief NGOs (TANGOs) • Funding Agency NGOs (FUNDANGOs) • Professional, academic and civic organizations (PACOs) 1 From this point up to next slide, taken from Constantino-David, Karina. “From the Present Looking Back: A History of Philippine NGO’s”, Organizing for Democracy: NGO’s, Civil Society and the Philippine State, Ateneo de Manila University Press, 1998.
  7. 7. “Mediums” transmitting CBR? • Mutant NGOs (MUNGOs):  Government- Run/Initiated NGOs (GRINGOs)  Business-Organized NGOs (BONGOs) &  Fly-by-night organizations set up by NGO entrepreneurs (COME N’GOs) Why is there a need to identify the “medium”?
  8. 8. The medium affects the message.
  9. 9. So far, there has been no in-depth research study done to really gauge “how far has CBR spread” in the Philippines.
  10. 10. So, what do we have? And what do we know?
  11. 11. 2011 Survey by the CBR Training & Development Committee • 24 organizations reported to be doing “CBR” work in: 15 regions 31 provinces 224 cities & municipalities
  12. 12. More or less, this is where we are • Area to be covered:  17 regions  80 provinces  122 cities  1,512 municipalities  42,025 barangays • Area covered: 15 regions 31 provinces 224 cities & municipalities
  13. 13. Final thoughts… • “If you give me a fish you have fed me for a day. If you teach me to fish, then you have fed me... until the river is contaminated or the shoreline seized for ‘development’ • But if you teach me to organize, then whatever the challenge I can join together with my peers and we will fashion our own solution.” – Northland Poster Collective
