SUPPORT FOR NEWSLETTER ADVOCACY FOR THE FEDERATION OF SENIOR CITIZENS’ ASSOCIATIONS OF THE PHILIPPINES (FSCAP)
Project Director:         Rene D. Somera
Funding Agency:        Countrywide Development Fund of Sen. Edgardo Angara through the Department of Social Welfare and Development

The Newsletter project was a collaborative undertaking of the Federation of Senior Citizens’ Associations of the Philippines (FSCAP) and SDRC’s Aging Studies Program.  With a limited circulation of 15,000 copies, the three issues were published in August 1999, December 1999, and April 2000. The FSCAP Newsletter contained news about the activities undertaken by provincial, city, municipal, and barangay federations such as consultation meetings, launching of senior citizens’ centers, and herbal garden contests.   Events such as “Linggo ng Katandaang Pilipino” were featured in the second issue.   It also featured the creative outputs of some members of the federations.   The editorial of Senator Edgardo Angara, “Tumatanda, Tumatatag,” appeared in the first issue, while that of former Vice President and DSWD Secretary Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, “Kalinga para kay Lolo at Lola,” appeared in the second issue.

The culminating activity of the project was a National Forum on Advocacy for Older Persons which was held in cooperation with the Department of Social Welfare and Development from March 23 to 26, 2000 at the Las Palmas Hotel.   The forum brought together advocates for the older person sector.   The participants included 16 regional FSCAP Presidents, officers of the NCR, municipal and city federations, as well as representatives from other government and non-government agencies, and academe.

Key words: Federation of Senior Citizens’ Associations of the Philippines, aging studies, advocacy for older persons, municipal and city federations
