IMPACT STUDY ON THE EDUCATION PROJECTS OF PEACE CORPS PHILIPPINES
Project Director:   Ma. Teresa G. de Guzman
Funding Agency: US Peace Corps/ Philippines

This study looks into the work of the Peace Corps Volunteers (PCV) posted in the Philippines between 2000 and 2005.  After 50 years of posting PCVs all over the country, the US Peace Corps would like to find out if the education objectives that were framed have been addressed by the work of the PCVs. The primary objective of the study is to document the impact of Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs) who worked in the Philippines between the periods 2000-2005. Specifically, the study will assess the impact of the PCVs’ activities associated with the Education project based on the two Peace Corps objectives: 1) Helping people on interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women; and 2) Helping promote a better understanding of the Americans among Filipinos. There are two goals in turn to answer the objectives.  The first goal is “to evaluate the work of the Peace Corps Volunteer in the school/community and the observed changes in school or community since the start of the Volunteer’s work, and, any changes as a result of working with the Peace Corps”; and, the second goal is “to evaluate what the Filipinos learned about the United States and the Americans based on their interaction with the Volunteers.”

Key words: Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs), education projects, the United States and Americans

KRAFT FOODS PHILIPPINES: 2011 CORPORATE REPUTATION SURVEY
Project Director:  Leah Veneessa Valbuena
Funding Agency:  Kraft Foods (Philippines), Inc.

This commissioned research is primarily aimed at understanding what “reputable company” means to select Filipino stakeholders and consumers. It is believed that working with a grassroots definition of “reputation” may significantly aid Kraft Foods Philippines in installing appropriate systems and programs to yield significant benefits. Other objectives of the research include: 1) measuring Kraft Foods Philippines’ performance using local and global indicators of corporate reputation; 2) comparing Kraft Foods Philippines’ corporate reputation performance with that of other multinational companies in the country; and 3) assessing whether Kraft Foods Philippines’s corporate reputation performance would translate to preference and purchase.

Key words: corporate reputation, multinational companies, Filipino consumer, corporate performance

 

DEVELOPMENT OF A CAPACITY ASSESSMENT TOOL ON EARLY CHILDHOOD CARE AND DEVELOPMENT (ECCD) IN DISASTER RISK REDUCTION AND MANAGEMENT
Project Director:    Leah Veneessa Valbuena
Funding Agency:  UNICEF and Plan International, Inc.

The primary goal of this project is to develop a self-administered assessment tool that would allow communities to evaluate their capacity to continuously deliver Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) programs and services (specifically on education, health and nutrition, and social protection) before, during, and after disasters. It is hoped that data from this tool could empower stakeholders to design intervention programs that would further capacitate the community and its ECCD service providers. In the end, it is also hoped that a sustainable right-based, gender-sensitive program on ECCD in Disasters shall be put to place.

Key words: Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD), disasters, assessment tools, intervention programs, gender sensitivity

 

PUNDASYON HANUNUO MANGYAN SCHOOL REVIEW
Project Director:  Ferdinand D. Dagmang
Funding Agency: Benefactor

The longest-running project undertaken by SDRC, involving the Pundasyon Hanunuo Mangyan School, is the subject of this review which seeks to assess the viability of continuing the project.  Operations have been suspended since 2009 due to internal conflict between the Mangyan tribes. While data validates the relevance of the project, a re-assessment will determine the impact of the school on its beneficiaries, the Mangyan culture, and specifically the Bulalacao community. The review thus seeks to gather pertinent documents to establish the viability of the project; ascertain the relevance and impact of the study through a designed assessment tool; propose fiscal management strategies and self-sustaining/income-generating programs to ensure the feasibility of continuing the project; review the basic education curriculum offered and assess its re-alignment with DEPED basic education requirements; and identify concrete steps in managing, controlling and supervising PHMS if it is decided that it will fall under LASSO supervision.

Key words: Hanunuo Mangyan, assessment tools, management strategies, income-generating programs, basic education curriculum
