DFA Celebrates United Nations Week with Focus on WomenPosted: 18 Oct 2009 11:49 PM PDT

PR-874-09, 19 October 2009 – The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) commenced this year’s United Nations Week with an exhibit focused on the third Millennium Development Goal (MDG) – the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Alberto G. Romulo led the flag ceremony and the opening of exhibit with the theme, “Making the MDGs Work for All, Making the MDGs Work for Women.”

The eight MDGs form a blueprint agreed to by the world’s leaders and all the world’s development institutions at the September 2000 UN Millennium Summit. The Goals range from halving extreme poverty to providing universal primary education, and halting the spread of HIV/AIDS by the target date of 2015.

UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative to the Philippines Dr. Jacqueline Badcock, UN Millennium Campaign Director Salil Shetty, and members of the diplomatic corps graced the event.

In his remarks, Secretary Romulo underscored the Philippines’ commitment to meet MDG-3 goal by 2015.

“The Philippines remains firmly committed to attaining the MDG-3 goal. The last decade had seen an increase in women’s participation in the labor force, with 49 percent of all women now working,” he said. In comparison, 79 percent of all men are working.

Secretary Romulo added that the Philippines ranked 6th among 130 countries featured in the Global Gender Gap Report for 2008 and that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo delivered a special address on gender at the World Economic Forum in January 2008 in recognition of the Philippines’ leadership in this vital area.

In the Philippine bureaucracy, the National Commission on the Role of Filipino Women reported that women comprise the majority, particularly at the technical level. As of 2004, data from the Civil Service Commission showed that women accounted for 57.6 percent of the 1.31 million employed by government.

Secretary Romulo further disclosed that in the foreign service, women comprise 48.7 percent (or 1,119 individuals) of all human resources in the Home Office, foreign service posts, and regional consular offices.

Meanwhile, Secretary Romulo said that the Philippines will overcome the recent weather occurrences that have affected millions of Filipinos with the support and assistance of its developments partners and the international community.

He expressed the Philippine Government’s appreciation to the United Nations and other partners overseas for their rapid response to President Arroyo’s requests for emergency assistance, as well as for sustained cooperation as the country prepares for longer-term rehabilitation and reconstruction.

“We wish to thank, in particular, United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Sir John Holmes, for taking the lead in launching the UN Flash Appeal for the Philippines and for his visit to the Philippines last week. We trust the international community will continue to respond generously to the UN’s Appeal,” he said. (Photo: Tony Bosa, Jr. DFA-PISU) END.

RP Embassy in Tel Aviv Visits RP Contingent to the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) at the Golan HeightsPosted: 18 Oct 2009 11:30 PM PDT

PR-870-09, 19 October 2009 – The Philippine Embassy in Tel Aviv, headed by Ambassador Petronila P. Garcia, traveled to Camp Zouani (Israel side) in the Golan Heights to meet the Philippine Contingent composed of military personnel from the different branches of service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines..

Vice Consul Greg Marie Mariño and Mr. Alvin L. Conchas III accompanied the Ambassador during the visit.

Lt. Col. Milfredo Melegrito (GSC-PA), the commanding officer of the Philippine Batallion, received the Ambassador at Camp Zouani. Military Honors/courtesies were also extended to the Ambassador.

The Commanding Officer, together with the military staff officers, also provided a short briefing. The Polish and Indian military staff officers joined the session.

Lt. Col. Melegrito provided an initial assessment on the Philippine “area of responsibility” and, at the same time, identified the possible (future) challenges to the Philippine contingent.

In turn, the Ambassador welcomed the military contingent and conveyed that such deployment is a milestone for the Philippines. She personally thanked the Polish and Indian battalions for the warm welcome, personal and official assistance they have extended to the Filipino soldiers.

In a separate briefing with the Philippine Contingent, the Ambassador provided a brief overview of Israel and emphasized the dos and don’ts, and more importantly, the distinct cultural and religious orientation of the host country.

Lt. Col. Melegrito also accompanied the Philippine Embassy officials to Mt. Bental. From there, he showed the panoramic view of the border between Syria and Israel and showed the extent of the area of responsibility of the Philippine contingent.

The Philippine Batallion will officially replace the Polish Batallion on October 22. A turn-over ceremony is scheduled at Camp Zouani, Golan Heights.

It will be recalled that the advance party, composed of 12 officers, was deployed on September 29 while the second batch, composed of 161 military personnel, arrived in early October 2009. The last batch of contingent is expected to arrive by late October to complement the battalion strength of 336 military personnel.

The deployment of Philippine troops in the Golan Heights is part of the Philippine Government’s commitment to the United Nations, particularly to the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF).

UNDOF has been operating in the Golan Heights for the past 35 years and Poland has provided military personnel for UNDOF since its formation in 1974. Force Commander Maj. Gen. Wolfgang Jilke (Austrian) currently heads the UNDOF. END

Filipino a Top Ten Finalist on CNN’s “Hero of the Year”Posted: 18 Oct 2009 11:28 PM PDT

PR-869-09, 19 October 2009 – Twenty-eight-year-old Efren Penaflorida, Jr. made it to the top ten finalists of Cable News Network’s (CNN) “Hero of the Year” for championing impoverished children in the Philippines and inspiring them to transform into dynamic and proactive members of the society through education.

Philippine Ambassador to the United States Willy C. Gaa lauded Penaflorida’s noble work saying, “Efren has proved that one person, with his determination and selflessness, can touch the lives of many and make a difference in the world.”

Born to a poor family in Cavite City, Penaflorida witnessed the growth of teenage gangs in the Philippines, which according to him, can be attributed to poverty. Feeling a great need to persuade his fellow youth to change and cease their delinquent ways, he and a group of friends in high school established the “Dynamic Teen Company” (DTC) to divert their attention to education.

Today, DTC has grown to become a 10,000-member volunteer group teaching basic reading, writing, arithmetic and English every Saturdays to marginalized children in the slums of Cavite City. Using a roaming “pushcart” filled with books, pens, tables and chairs, they are able to transform places such as cemeteries and dump sites into classrooms.

In a span of 12 years, Penaflorida and his group has changed the lives of over 1,500 children.

Penaflorida’s heroism has caught the attention of an international audience in this year’s “Hero of the Year” contest sponsored by CNN. Out of a pool of nearly 9,000 applicants, Penaflorida successfully made it to the top ten finalists.

The winner, which will be chosen through an online public voting, will be awarded with a $100,000.00 cash prize.

“Efren serves as a champion to the marginalized Filipino youth. He has gone a long way with his pushcart and we know that he can go even further if chosen as this year’s ‘Hero of the Year.’ It is in this note that I exhort the Filipino community in the United States to aid in furthering Efren’s cause by casting your votes online in support of him,” Ambassador Gaa said.

Voting period will run until 19 November 2009. A link to the voting page can be accessed at http://edition.cnn.com/SPECIALS/cnn.heroes/vote/. END
