Millennium Development Goals - Family-based Actions on Children and their Environs in the Slums (MDG-FACES) Project

MDG-FACES empowers LGUs to be dynamic partners of the national government in responding to the challenges of the MDGs. It engages the participation of forty (40) families living in the slums from select cities. It also aims to establish quick response mechanisms, demonstration projects, and sustainability measures that will address the MDG-deficit areas on environment, food, or health directly affecting the quality of life of children in the slums.

 

Objectives

•   Enhance the capacities of urban poor women/mothers to identify issues, articulate the needs of and set targets for their families, especially of their children, make strategic choices and actions, and monitor their progress to meet MDGs using the Family MDG Covenant;

•   Develop and establish quick response mechanisms at the household, city and national levels to ensure that concrete actions are facilitated to provide solutions addressing MDG issues affecting children in the slums, including the mobilization of national and local governments, business groups, church, academe and civil society for policy, program, financial and capacity-building support; and

•   Develop and be tested by the community, models on rights-based actions and solutions addressing MDG deficits in education, food, health and environment that directly impact on the quality of life of children in the slums.    

 

For the Cordillera, the City of Tabuk in Kalinga was piloted for this program.
