HISTORY of MAHINTANA T
he humble beginnings of Mahintana Foundation, Inc. trace back 35 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 foun-
dation, 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.
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 (LGUs), Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), 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
To give more elbow room 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.
for International Development-Philippine Australian Community Assistance Program (AusAID-PACAP) who had been supporting our programs from 1994 to 2008. Another longterm partner in helping the Muslim communities in Sumbakil, Polomolok, South Cotabato is the Lutheran World Relief (LWR), who has 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 a professional staff with backgrounds in various disciplines.

MESSAGE from the PRESIDENT T
he year 2012 marks the foundation’s 35th year of carrying out its responsibility towards its adopted communities in pursuit of helping them help themselves. This year, Mahintana has also been confronted with challenges, since some of its projects have come to its conclusion. In particular are the South –Eastern Philippines Health and Economic Alternatives (HEAL) Project funded by European Commission and the Health Promotion (HealthPRO)
Project supported by USAID. Though, we believe that these interventions have made humble accomplishments in generating demand for health services through information and advocacy and providing better economic opportunities to the communities it has served. The triumph we reaped for the past years have given us the passion we need to continue achieving our vision of “improving the quality of life of people in a sustainable environment” despite of these trying times. As
we continue to implement our existing programs and projects, we also look into the possibilities of continuously engaging in various social enterprise endeavors to be able to sustain our development initiatives. I wish to convey my sincerest gratitude for the generous support of our donors and partners, the unwavering faith of our leaders and officers and the dedication of our staff who have made all these years’ accomplishments possible. God bless and Mabuhay!
BIENVENIDO L. PEREZ
MESSAGE from the EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR O
ver the past 35 years, Mahintana has been persistent in its noble task of sustaining its programs and services in the SOCSARGEN area while continuing to meet the expectations of its fund donors. As some of the projects have come to its completion, the foundation continues to uphold its longtime partnership with the local government and the private sectors. 2012 has also been a productive year of setting up and seeking out opportunities for the future success of Mahintana Foundation, Inc. in its continuing pursuit of “helping communities help themselves”. While
we continue to work on “improving the quality of the lives of people in a sustainable environment”, it is also worthwhile to look into the inward state of the foundation. We have been successful in our engagement on Social Entrepreneurship with Health Plus Program as our flagship efforts, serving 23,000 households with 60 HPOs, 7 HPPs and 5 HPSis, generating a positive income. Its best practices have eventually made the Health Plus Program a learning site with organizations all over the Philippines visiting to discover and learn its success stories. With this accomplishment, we strive to integrate social enterprise component in
all dimensions to fit to the dynamic development of our communities and respond to the demands of the changing times. On top of it, we continue to promote good governance and integrity in all our undertakings. Lastly, we make every effort to sustain our partnership with Dole Philippines, Inc. and complement the company’s expansion program all throughout the region. With Dolefil’s assistance, we will be able to scale-up and intensify our project implementation in the coming years. It requires the hard work and contributions of many to make a difference in
the lives of the communities we serve. In the foundation, we are fortunate to have a strong and vibrant Board of Trustees that provides excellent leadership. I continue to be amazed and proud of the skill, compassion, and dedication staff members reveal when carrying out their responsibilities. We also rely heavily on long lasting relationships we have established with so many local stakeholders throughout SOCSARGEN. We have a come a long way over the years but we still have far to go. I look forward to 2013 and start building sustainable and resilient communities.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION and REGENERATION PROGRAM
he organization promotes and sustains development initiatives on environmental protection, conservation and regeneration along the uplands of the Mt. Matutum Protected Landscape and the river systems and coastal areas of the Sarangani Bay Protected Seascape through the proper use and management of natural resources.
GULLY TREE PLANTING
Dolefil-initiated project since 2001 aimed to rehabilitate denuded gullies and mitigate the incidence of soil erosion caused by flash floods in Barangays Kinilis, Pagalun-
gan, Polo, Lamcaliaf and Palkan in Polomolok and Kablon in Tupi. This year, it has facilitated planting of 111,566 hills of fruit and forest trees with 98.8% survival rate and 56,760 hills of bam-
boos with 99.6% survival rate covering 141.9 hectares of gullies of adopted communities. Furthermore, the project has also installed used fishnets on the hilly part of Pagalungan gully covering 3,265.3
sq.m. This technology, Earth-matting installation, aimed to stabilize soil and reduce vulnerability of being eroded, was also utilized in other environmental projects of the foundation.
REDUCED VULNERABILITY by INTRODUCING VIABLE ECONOMIES
eVIVE Project aims to reduce the impact of flood in farmlands located along the riverbanks of SilwayKlinan River System. On its 2nd year, 38,928 bamboos with 87% survival rate, 67,961 forest trees with 88% survival rate, and 13, 650 fruit trees with 92% survival rate were planted along riverbanks of Silway-7 and Klinan. 144 gabion cages were also constructed along the riverbanks of Barangays Landan and Magsaysay which was complemented by Provincial Government of South Cotabato and Local Government of Polomolok with 70 gabion cages constructed along the riverbanks of Silway 7.
As a follow-through on CLTS training held in 2011, 70 communitybased trainers were organized which successfully conducted simulations on 924 individuals on 12 barangays, which led to the construction of at least 167 new toilets using locally available materials. Further, 409 households have maintained FAITH gardens utilizing SALT and vermi-composting systems. The households are currently consuming 4-6 types of vegetable produce. Vegetable production, Plant/Bamboo Nurseries and Community Garden were also implemented by 13 POs organized in 8 more communities.
To further protect the riverbanks/gullies from soil erosion/flashfloods, 7,779 m2 of earth-matting was installed in 6 barangays of Polomolok (Landan, Upper Klinan, Magsaysay, Koronadal Proper, Silway 7 and Pagalungan), and Barangays Acmonan of Tupi and Datalbob of Tâ€™boli. Twelve riverside barangays were also recipient of 39 billboards conveying messages on proper waste segregation and enforcement of Municipal Ordinance on Ecological Waste Management (RA9003).
The project has also organized and trained 13 BDRRMC/rescue teams and provided 13 new spineboards for emergency and disaster response. It continues to provide capacity building training and technical assistance on Organizational Ownership, Leadership and Financial Management, Solid Waste Management, Emergency Response, Ordinance and resolution Making, GIS-based Hazard Mapping, Bamboo Propagation to its adopted communities. 7
REduced Pollution through Alternative and Indigenous Rehabilitation

In 2012, RePAIR Project include: planting of 17,067 trees (10,553 forest trees, 2115 fruit trees and 4,399 bamboo) along the 10.5 linear kilometers of the Silway River by 36 households and 7,050 coffee seedlings by 24 farmers in Datal Bob along their farms in the Silway River; installation of 1,284 sq.m. of earth matting in slope/eroded riverbanks in Datal Bob and farmlands in Talcon; establishment of FAITH Gardens and consumption of its produce by at least 25 households; others were reported to have sold some of their vegetables, thus providing additional income; in-
crease number of households practicing waste segregation using empty sacks and installation of 9 billboards bearing catchphrase on Solid Waste Management and guide in the proper segregation of waste materials. Moreover, 31 representatives from Barangay Councils/Health Centers participated in the Training of Trainers on Community-Led Total Sanitation. The trained teams were able to conduct 4 CLTS simulations in 3 adopted barangays which contributed in the construction of 139 new toilets and thus, help reduce possible fecal contamination of the Silway River. Comparative analysis of the EMB-Region 12 â€“ Silway River WQMA monitoring data in the last two quarters of 2012 showed that total Fecal Coliform from the Monitoring Stations 19-24 reduced to 829 in the last quarter of 2012 from 1,520 in the previous quarter (July-Sept 2012) or a reduction of 45%. Total Coliform also reduced 17% (1,520 to 1246) based on the same period.

CONFERENCE ON DISASTER RISKS and CLIMATE CHANGE: A SOCSARGEN ACTION AGENDA
he conference, conducted from August 8-9 at Dolores Farm Resort in Polomolok, was perceived as timely by the participants since it created a venue of imparting knowledge and learning from the insights and experiences of others. It also provided the suitable environment to contemplate and develop a collective DRR plan, particularly since the “Habagat” that hit the country 2-days prior had immersed Manila and its neighboring cities and provinces, places that hardly ever experienced
flooding in the past, not to mention the landslides that resulted to casualties. The activity made use of presentations and plenary. Open forum followed at the end of each clustered-presentation. These gave participants the opportunity to clarify and share related information and experiences. The first part of the presentation provided an overview of the global, national and local climate situations while the sub-
sequent part presented the information on DRR/ CCA and Mitigation initiatives already implemented in selected areas. These were used as inputs for the participants to formulate a collective DRRM plan of their respective areas which were categorized into Preparedness, Preparation and Mitigation, Response, and Rehabilitation and Recovery. This formed part of the conference’s output. Presentation of its synthesis and of next steps culminated the 2-day conference.
