Aquino leads Galing Pook 2011 Awards in Malacañang

PDFPrintE-mail

President Benigno S. Aquino III underscored the important role of local government units as partners of the Aquino administration in pushing for developmental projects focusing on poverty alleviation, education and health as part of his social contract with the Filipino people.

Speaking before fellow public servants, guests and the winners in the Galing Pook Awards 2011 at the Rizal Hall of the Malacanang Palace on Monday, the President said that through good governance as a result of constant cooperation from the national and local governments with the unwavering support from the people, the country will undoubtedly fulfill sustainable progress and development.

“Manalig lamang po tayo sa mga makabuluhang bunga ng mabuting pamamahala, sa pakikipagtulungan ng lokal at pambansang pamahalaan, at sa pakikibalikat ng bawat isa. Sama-sama po natin itong (progress) abutin sa tuwid na daan tungo sa isang mas matibay at mas masaganang kinabukasan,” the President said.

“Sadyang hindi matatawaran ang papel na ginagampanan ng ating Local Government Units sa ating krusada tungo sa kaunlaran. Kayo ang katuwang ng ating administrasyon sa pagpapatupad ng mga reporma sa lokal na antas; kayo ang nagsisilbing sangay ng pambansang pamahalaan sa pagsisiguro na tugma ang ating mga inisyatiba at proyekto, at direkta nitong naaapektuhan ang buhay ng bawat Pilipino sa positibong paraan,” he added.

Unity and cooperation, the President said, are essential tools in attaining the objectives in the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals.

“Kung ang Millennium Development Goals ng United Nations ang ating magiging sukatan ng mga natatamasa nating kaunlaran — mula sa pagsugpo sa kahirapan at kagutuman, sa pagpapabuti ng sistemang pang-edukasyon, sa pagkakapantay-pantay sa lipunan, hanggang sa pangangalaga sa kalusugan at kapaligiran — talaga naman pong masasabi nating mas mabilis natin itong maaabot sa ating pagbabayanihan sa tuwid na daan,” the President said.

The Chief Executive also recognized the various projects of the local government units (LGUs) that have directly affected the lives of the Filipinos.

“Ang lahat po ng mga proyektong ito ay nagbunga mula sa masusing koordinasyon ng pambansa at lokal na pamahalaan, at ang masigasig na pakikiisa ng mamamayan. Sumasaludo po ako sa mga local chief executives na kasama natin ngayon. Hindi niyo lamang sinisiguro ang tagumpay ng bawat isinasagawa ninyong proyekto; binibigyang-lakas din ninyo ang mga mamamayan upang makilahok sa katuparan ng ating mga adhikain,” the President noted.

Initiated in October 21, 1993, the Galing Pook awards is a pioneering program that recognizes innovations and excellence in local governance.

The awardees are chosen from a national search of local governance programs, evaluated through a rigorous multilevel screening process based on positive results and impact, promotion of people’s participation and empowerment, innovation, transferability and sustainability, and efficiency of program service delivery.

Beyond the awards, winning programs become models of good governance promoted for adoption in other communities. They provide useful insights and strategies to find innovative solutions to common problems. More importantly, they affirm the community and the local government’s commitment to good governance.

Since its inception, at least 230 programs of 152 local governments were awarded the Galing Pook. These awardees become very important advocates in stimulating and inspiring other local governments to introduce innovative practices and provide a fertile environment for the replication of successful reforms.

A total of 137 entries were submitted this year, 55 from Luzon, 33 from Visayas and 49 from Mindanao.

The ten awardees for 2011 are Sarangani Province (Justice on Wheels), Misamis Oriental (Turning red to green), Upi Maguindanao (rural community e-Center), Zamboanga del Norte (empowering the Subanen people), Limasawa Southern Leyte (poor municipality can eliminate malnutrition), Alimodian Iloilo (bringing high schools closer to home), Bohol province (rabies prevention and elimination), Maribojoc Bohol (LGU-led cadastral survey), Albay province (health strategy for MDG attainment) and Real, Gen. Nakar, Infanta and Panukulan in Quezon Province (community-based mental health management).
