With the relentless efforts of the national government in capacitating barangay and local officials in the implementation of GAD – Gender and Development programs,  it is imperative that GAD plans and activities must be focused and directed towards meeting the needs of the communities.   As mandated in the Republic Act 9710 otherwise known as the Magna Carta for Women, GAD programs must encapsulate a developmental perspective that is participatory and empowering, equitable, sustainable,  free from violence, respectful of human rights,  and supportive of self-determination and actualization of human potentials.   Hence, the need to   create doable and attainable training plans that will catapult the workforce of every barangay as it continues to engage service- oriented, customer- focused programs among its stakeholders, thus, uplifting the human condition of its constituents.

To respond to the challenges of times,  the following objectives are sought to be realized:

  • Align efforts of local government units (LGUs) and the National Government on Gender and Development (GAD) and its commitments to international declarations;
  • Strengthen the Barangay and LGU relations on development, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation;
  • Re-fresh and empower every barangay officials of the essentialities of GAD training in a new perspective;
  • Re-frame the concept of GAD training that will tailor-fit to the needs of every barangay in crafting programs and projects aligned to the very needs of its stakeholders and its organization;
  • Assist every barangay in crafting, implementing, and monitoring GAD programs and projects
