history

of

mahintana U[V

he humble beginnings of Mahintana Foundation, Inc. trace back 34 years ago when a group of executives from Dole Philippines, Inc. and professionals from South Cotabato organized the foundation on August 12, 1977. In honor of the indigenous communities inhabiting the area, the term mahintana was coined from the B’laan terms mahin (sea) and tana (land). The B’laan is an indigenous tribe regarded as one of the earliest settlers in Southern Mindanao. MFI was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on September 12, 1977 (Registration No. 75603) as a private, non-stock, non-profit social development foundation, with Dr. Jorge F. Calderon, Sr as its Founding Chairperson. The foundation was then under the direct supervision of the Community Relations Department of Dole Philippines, Inc., with its initial programs

on health (immunization), water system establishment, and reforestation of gullies and riverbanks within the areas of Mt. Matutum. To give more elbowroom to the foundation in developing and implementing its programs and projects, the foundation spun off from the company’s direct supervision in 1993, though it still continually extends its assistance in the implementation of various Community Development projects of Dole Philippines, Inc. Over the years, Mahintana has expanded its programs and operations in close partnership with a variety of development players in the community. It has established strong networks and linkages with various local and foreign resource organizations, which was instrumental in building effective partnerships with the Local Government Units (LGU), Non-Government Organizations (NGO), private sector, the academe, and other

development players in the area. Among our initial donor organizations, supporting our conservation activities along the Mt. Matutum Protected Landscape (MMPL) and the Sarangani Bay Protected Seascape (SBPS), is the Australian Agency for International Development-Philippine Australian Community Assistance Program (AusAID-PACAP) who had been supporting our programs since 1994 to 2008. Another longterm partner in helping the Muslim communities in Sumbakil, Polomolok, South Cotabato is the Lutheran World Relief (LWR), who had been supporting our agricultural production and marketing program since 2002 up to the present time. Currently, Mahintana is governed by a Board of Trustees (BOT) coming from the corporate, business and social development institutions, and is supported by professional staff with backgrounds in various disciplines.

armest Mah i n t a n a Greetings!

Year 2011 was a great year to Mahintana and to our development partners. Our hard work paid off not only because we surpassed this year’s targets but more important, we witnessed ripples of change that our development contributions had effected in the lives of people we assist. This year, Mahintana completed several of

its projects and was awarded with eight (8) new ones. These were made possible through the active involvement of our dynamic staff, who persistently served as frontliners of our assisted communities; our Board of Trustees, who gave their steadfast support in our endeavor; and our fund donors and partnerstakeholders, who bestowed their trust and continued patronage. Thus, my heartfelt gratitude to all.

As we prepare for 2012, we also reflect on our past experiences. This way, we learn to deal with our weaknesses, sustain our strengths and make us better equipped to take on the challenges of 2012. Once more, we invite our development partners to join us as we commit our services in the achievement of our shared goals, benefitting the greater good. To all, God bless and Mabuhay!

arm greetings from Mahintana! 2011 was a busy year for the Foundation. In partnership with Lutheran World Relief (LWR), Dole Philippines, Inc., International Organization on Migration (IOM) and other partners, Mahintana has provided around P27.4M relief assistance to about 36,592 victims of natural calamities in Mindanao. This includes victims of flash floods in Davao City, Valencia City, Cagayan de Oro City and different areas of SOCSARGEN. While concluding the 10year peace and development partnership, Mahintana and LWR forged a new 3-year partnership

in addressing disaster risks and climate change concerns of communities along the Silway and Klinan river systems. This is in partnership with Dole Philippines, Inc., local government units (LGU), community members and other stakeholders. The Foundation as well expanded its generics drug distribution program under the support of AusAID-PhilippineAustralia Community Assistance Program in partnership with the Department of Health, Food and Drug Administration and LGUs. This initiative supplemented the supply of medicines to the public hospitals in South Cotabato and the Botika ng Barangay of the province.

Also, two (2) of our ongoing projects, the Kapit Bisig Para sa Kabataan Nutrition Project, a public-private partnership initiative with the LGUs of South Cotabato and the European Commission (EU) co-funded SouthEastern Philippines Health and Economic Alternatives Project received recognitions from the National Nutrition Council and the National Anti-Poverty Commission, respectively for their best practices. Among others, the Foundation has successfully implemented USAIDfunded sub-projects through its different project contractors. Partnerships with the World Health Organization and the Give2Asia were also

executed successfully. The Philippine Council for NGO Certification also awarded the Foundation its 3rd 5-year certification for qualifying financial management and accountability criteria. We express our sincere appreciation to our fund donors for their generosity; local government units, line government agencies and other civil society organizations for the partnerships; Board of Trustees for steadfast support; Mahintana staff for their vigor in sharing their knowledge, skills and time; and assisted community members, whose determination to improve their quality of life largely contributed in the success of the Foundation.

Looking forward, Mahintana shall rise to the challenges of disaster risks and climatic changes by scaling up its environmental interventions. We shall also enhance and build our capacities to help our partner communities in their respective social enterprise endeavors. Similarly, we are set to intensify our privatepublic partnership approach to mainstream and ensure sustainability of our initiatives. Simultaneously, we are supporting the national government’s thrust towards accountable, transparent and good governance. God Bless us and may the coming years bring realization to our collective goals! MARTINIANO L. MAGDOLOT

esponding to the need of improving access to safe, affordable, and essential medicines in remote communities, Mahintana Health Plus was launched in September 18, 2007 in partnership with NPF, Inc., which awarded Mahintana the PPF title with authority to operate in SoCSarGen. The project is funded by GTZ and KFW and implemented in close coordination

210

with DOH-CHD Region XII and FDA, in partnership with the provincial government of South Cotabato, M/BLGUs, and cooperatives. In 2011, Mahintana Health Plus expanded its coverage through the funding support of AusAID-PACAP worth P1.69M, which launched three (3) HPSiS of Norala District Hospital, Polomolok Municipal Hospital and RHU-Lake

Sebu; two (2) HPPs of Dole Stanfilco Surallah Banga Workers’ Labor Union and T’boli Integrated Development Cooperative; and 11 HPOs or BnBs, reaching an additional 6,600 households in the remote areas of South Cotabato.

he support for MICADEV coffee production, initiated in 2008 through the funding support of the German Development Services, has significantly improved the quality and production of Arabica coffee beans in the MMPL, benefitting 28 farmers of MBFA. Over the years, it included the production of Civet coffee or Kafe Balos, known as the world’s finest, richest and most expensive coffee at P8,400-P10,000/kilo raw, processed through the droppings of Civet cats that are common yet endangered species in the area. In return, MBFA farmers actively participated in the activities of MMPL protection and Civet conservation. This year, however, changing climate patterns have contributed and affected coffee production and sales, which was lower by 33%. Nonetheless, Mt. Matutum’s coffee was featured in the 1st National Coffee Congress in General Santos City and the ASEAN-Food & Beverage Trade Mission in Tokyo, Japan, led and supported by CITEM, an attached agency of DTI.

Likewise, it received an 81.1 score from the Level Ground Trading of Canada, which promotes Direct Fair Trade, for its aroma, taste and presentation and was awarded the International Golden Trophy for Quality and Trophy’s Golden Badge by the Trade Leaders’ Club, determined by 7,500 entrepreneur members from 90 countries, for recognizing and promoting the quality philosophy in the achievement of excellence. Kafe Balos, on the other hand, was chosen for international packaging and country branding development among eight (8) Philippine products and will soon be launched by Blugrè Coffee Corporation as a new product in their coffee shops. These recognitions, achieved in partnership with Green Tropics Coffee Enterprise that processes, markets and trades MBFA coffee, indicate not only the international acclaim of Mt. Matutum’s coffee but also of the recognition of the B’laan’s indigenous cultural heritage, enhancing their self-worth and confidence, leading to a strengthened interaction with local and foreign tourists and stakeholders.

Under agro-forestry establishment, assorted fruit-tree seedlings planted in upland farms has increased forest cover and will provide a long-term source of income in the coming years. Goat distribution, meanwhile, served as livestock support. To keep farm animals healthy, the PEACE Project, in partnership with OMAGs T’boli and Tupi, has facilitated massive biologics, which involved administering vitamin and deworming services. Further, organizational development activities had facilitated updating of BDPs, which resulted in the integration of SMPC’s development plan and submission of appropriation ordinances. Likewise, capability-building trainings have resulted to improved skills of SMPC management and staff on areas of operations management, financial system and customer service, thus effectively managing the cooperative.

Marking its final year of implementation, the PEACE project, paired

with people’s determination, has led to an evolution of change, de-

velopment to its Muslim-dominated community-beneficiaries and

life-changing experiences to its members, ultimately leaving a legacy of peace.
