MONITORING NGO’s COMMITMENT TO RURAL POVERTY REDUCTION:

PhilDHRRA-Luzon’s Experience



Rationale:

For the past twenty years all NGO members of PHILDHRRA have undertaken a range of rural poverty reduction program ranging from capacity building to enterprise development. Today, in Luzon, twenty-five (25) NGOs are into various stages of implementing community development program aimed at reducing rural poverty in 9,482 barangays within 524 municipalities in 48 provinces. At their local area of operations, NGO worker at times feel some sense of accomplishment seeing the community develop through collective people’s action. However, looking at the national poverty situation, some NGO workers feels that there efforts have not contributed much to over-all national development. Moreover, in the advocacy efforts at the national level, network leaders are faced with the challenge of putting forward hard data that would substantiate the seemingly “rhetorical” claims for development. These are some of the reasons for coming-up with a monitoring tool that will capture and account for the rural poverty reduction efforts undertaken by NGOs.

In February 2002, during the PhilDHRRA-Luzon Regional Assembly, the member NGOs had a consensus on coming-up with a monitoring system that will track the performance of each member NGO based on their set commitment to rural poverty reduction. The monitoring system is part of the operational framework on rural poverty reduction that rationalizes the role of each NGO member and the network secretariat (see Annex A). The framework clearly show the various programs for human resource development and rural poverty reduction being undertaken by NGO members namely:

  1. Asset Reform

  2. Sustainable Agricultural

  3. Rural Enterprise Development

  4. Basic Social Services

Based on the aforementioned framework, the task of on-ground program implementation rests on each member NGO. The network shall provide technical and organization development support geared towards improving the operational efficiency of each member NGO in performing their rural poverty reduction program. (see Annex B).
Objectives:
The application of the tool on monitoring the NGO commitment on rural poverty reduction aims to:

  1. Document the commitment of each member NGO on rural poverty reduction and human resource development.

  2. Improve NGO accountability and transparency with various development partners by keeping track with the performance of each NGO relative to their commitment thereby

  3. Establish track record and greater credibility necessary for effective policy advocacy work.

  4. Facilitate objective documentation and feedbacking of member NGOs contribution to the network’s development agenda.

Processes Undertaken:
The following steps were undertaken to operationalize the monitoring system.
1. Identification and clustering of Frontline NGO’s based on their existing programs

Upon approval of the tool, member NGOs were asked to identify their existing programs. This was easily facilitated through their submission of the updated NGO profile. The programs were then classified and those NGOs implementing similar program were correspondingly identified and were known as the Lead NGOs. Below is the list of the lead NGOs for each key result area (KRA) on rural poverty reduction.

  1. Feedbacking

The consolidated report of NGO’s commitment to rural poverty is then presented to the Regional Assembly for feedbacking. The report is intended to stimulate reflection and analysis on the collective performance of the members.

During the first year it was piloted (baseline data taken from the profile and annual reports submitted by NGO members), NGO representatives felt consoled when they realized that their little efforts on the ground when added with the efforts of other NGOs create a feeling of accomplishment and a sense of solidarity to the collective gains for rural development. The feeling is likened to a festive harvest where each one has brought their own contribution.

The consolidated date also serves as a point for identifying areas for collaboration. The result is also an input for deeper discussion at the thematic committee level.
