Habitat builds hall for elders, children By Jennifer P. Gaitano


HE Habitat for Humanity Incorporated (BHFHI) has turned-over the newly-constructed multi-purpose hall to the people of Christ the King, Barangay Ambago, Burtuan City, Saturday.

Considered place for community events of senior citizens, young adults and children, the edifice was received by the CTK Home Owners Association, through its president, Solomom Callano, from BHFHI Vice President Heddy Sumalpong. “These keys symbolize ownership, security, privacy and opportunity. With these, you now have a house and a multi-

purpose center you can call your own,” Sumalpong told the recipient homeowners. He added, “from now on, you will take full control over your house and this multi-purpose center giving your family the security, privacy and comfort they need.” Having been freed from the burden of homelessness, “it is our fervent prayer that your lives will be filled with ELDERS | page 11

Veterans Bank traveling exhibit highlights Davao in World War II DAVAO City––Why not a World War II history lesson inside a shopping mall? Visitors to SM City Davao Annex –Ecoland will get a chance to brush up on their World War II history with the mounting of Philippine Veterans Bank’s World War II Traveling Exhibit at the mall’s ground floor starting June 1 up to June 12, 2013. Entitled “War of Our Fathers”, the multi-awarded traveling exhibit is fresh from its stint at SM City General Santos and will now give Davao City residents a glimpse of what World War II in the Philippines was like through its numerous photographs, artifacts, and memorabilia that pay homage to the bravery, patriotism, and determination of Filipino men and women who fought and died during the war for our country’s freedom. The centerpiece of the Traveling Exhibit in Davao is one panel which exclusively shows WWII images of Davao including scenes from the Davao Penal Colony (DAPECOL) which was a POW camp during the war. According to Dr. Ricardo T. Jose, it was also at

Dapecol where 10 American POWs escaped from there and were evacuated to Australia, bringing the first eyewitness accounts of the Bataan Death March and POW experiences to the US public. In May 1945, during the Liberation of Davao, a raid was conducted by a combined US infantry and Filipino guerrilla group on DAPECOL to rescue POWs believed to be still incarcerated. However, the POWs had already been moved by their Japanese captors a few years earlier all the raiding team found were the remains of the dead. Since 2006, Veterans Bank’s Traveling Exhibit has been touring the country and has been displayed in government offices, museums, schools, and malls in over 50 cities and municipalities sharing with Filipinos, especially the youth, the significant lessons of World War II. In 2009, the Traveling Exhibit was put on display at the Nanjing War Memorial Museum upon the invitation of the Government of Nanjing, China. Recognitions received by the exhibit in recent years include the Anvil Award,

Boun Bang Fai: An undying tradition By Lorie Ann Cascaro

SEVEN men were chanting while carrying a homemade rocket up to the makeshift launch pad at a remote village in Vientiane province last Saturday. Amid the drizzle, they managed to climb the big wooden ladder, which was as high as a threestory building, where the rocket would take off 10 minutes later. The rocket was made of hard plastic pipe and was full of gun powder, with a bamboo stick used as the tail. As it was gradually mounted, hundreds of people on the ground were holding their breath and waiting for it to cast a line of smoke in the sky. A group of young men played their band instruments while others were preparing their rockets, waiting for their turns. At least 20 rockets, whose sizes ranged from the width of a wine bottle to that of an electricity post, had been launched

in Nonhinhae village in Meuangfeuang district, a three-hour drive away from the capital, to celebrate the biggest Boun Bang Fai or rocket festival in the country so far. It was not an ordinary afternoon as the wide acres of empty rice paddies were patched with colorful tents and tables, and village folk and visitors drank beer, enjoying the sumptuous dishes prepared by the community. It was a unique day as some men dressed like women, while others painted themselves black. These black-colored bodies and faces made the monks in their orange gowns stand out in the crowd. Preceding the long queue of parked vehicles was an array of stalls, where vendors sold barbecued chicken, grilled fish, boiled eggs on sticks, dried sea food, refreshments and plastic wares. The unpaved roads saw bunches of balloons printed with cartoon characters for sale and ice

cream in carts for those needing to cool down. It was a special day for children as the land where their parents used to plow and harvest turned into a little carnival. Laughter went around and around in an old-fashioned carousel-like ride, blending with the grown-ups’ cheers for each successful rocket launched. The swish of the rockets accompanied the sounds of pounding rain on the roofs and the loud music of the band in a temporary stage on the barren rice field. The brown land, which degraded into a muddy trail for those who dared to go near the launching area, will surely turn green next month. It is common knowledge or, should I say, a common hope that rains will give life to this land with the rise of the rockets. Therefore, these festivals are an age-old tradition. Of rockets, frogs and flute

Folklore tells the story of why human beings send rockets to the rain god, Phya Thaen, for his gift of water. Of all the kings who fought Phya Thaen to send down rain so people could start planting rice – including the Naga King and the King of Bees – it was the Toad King who conquered the rain god. The night before the fight, the Toad King sent termites to eat the sword handles of the rain god’s soldiers and scorpions to bite them. The next day, they were not able to fight the troops of the Toad King. The king caught and tied up Phya Thaen, and convinced him to make a pact in exchange for his freedom. They agreed that Phya Thaen would send the rain every year to supply water for the rice farms and other plants. But humans had to send a rocket first so that the rain god would know it was time to deliver.

The frogs will then shout in chorus as the rain arrives, sending a message to farmers that the rice planting may begin. When the harvest season comes around, people must then play a flute so that Phya Thaen will know it is time to stop the rain. He will only send the rains again when he sees the familiar rockets. Tradition lives on Nobody knows when the first rocket festival was held in Laos, but everybody believes that such tradition will continue. Technological advancement is supposed to have made us more scientific, instead of holding on to myths and legends. However, sending rockets before the rainy season continues as an annual event in the country. Thanks must be paid to science and technology as the rockets become more sophisticated and bigger as time goes by. UNDYING | page 8

China’s plastic bag ban saves 6 million tons of oil

BEIJING––A plastic bag ban launched five years ago has cut consumption by at least 67 billion bags, saving an equivalent of six million tons of oil, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) said Friday.

Since the ban as implemented, use of plastic bags has dropped by more than two-thirds, said Li Jing, vice chief of energy-saving and environmental protection department under the NDRC, China’s top economic planner. China banned the practice of offering free plastic bags in supermarkets, department stores and grocery stores, as well as prohibited the production and use of plastic bags thinner than 0.025 mm starting from June 1, 2008. However, some vendors still offer free bags, as well as bags that are too thin. The government will tighten supervision and better enforce the ban in the future, Li said.

MAGSAYSAY, Davao del Sur––Rarely could I walk through a real virgin rain forest again - unless I go back to climbing the 8,000-foot high Mt. Talomo in Davao City or the Kidapawan side of Mt. Apo which I did in the early 80s. But last week, I found myself inside a virgin forest again, in the mountains of Upper B’la village in Magsaysay, Davao del Sur, after going along with the family that owns a large tract of rugged, mountainous land planted with coconut and fruit trees. It takes about 13 kilometers from the town of Bansalan to Lower B’la and another five kilometers from the lower village to the Upper B’la. One has to go through a narrow dirt road that winds through coconut farms, mango farms, corn fields and vegetable plots with robust, healthy crops that are helping farmers and villagers earn enough money to send their children to school. Names of congressmen and mayors printed on streamers still dot the narrow dirt road that remain unpaved, despite promises from politicians that the road here would be paved from the asphalted Magsaysay road to that road that

SYDNEY -- Scientists will retrace Sir Douglas Mawson’s 1911-1914 expedition to Antarctica in November, the University of New South Wales (UNSW) announced Tuesday. A team of 46 researchers and would-be explorers will set out from Hobart, the capital of Australia’s southern Tasmania island state, for a six-week journey to repeat measurements made by Mawson’s team 100 years ago, including observations of the ocean, wildlife, weather, geology and ice cover. “Antarctica remains one of the last, great unexplored regions on Earth. It is a unique place to monitor the health of our planet. We want to discover just how much has changed since Mawson’s time,” said Chris Turney, professor at the UNSW Climate Change Research Centre. The 1.5 million AU dollars (US$ 1.46 million) privately-funded expedition also aims to recapture and share the excitement of scientific exploration and discovery, using the latest technologies to communicate with school children and the public back home in Australia. The researchers will take measurements of the ocean water, visit sub-Antarctic islands where they will collect sediment cores from lakes and peat bogs, and study the wildlife.

A virgin rain forest in B’la By Aurelio A. Pena

Antarctica expedition retraces

leads to Bala. Despite these unpleasant distractions, I was led to a “secret” rain forest similar to the one I visited decades ago at Mt. Talomo. Although it’s inaccurate to call it “secret”, it seems like it was, because no one can see this forest from the village unless one crosses the coconut plantation towards a deep ravine that leads to a rocky river below. The ravine itself is thickly forested with ancient towering trees like lauan, mahogany, molave and other indigenous trees that one only finds in a rain forest. The rainforest reminded me of the uncharted, unexplored rain forests of Mt Talomo whose trails were cleared and opened by a selected group of mountaineer-explorers of the Mt. Apo Climbers Association of Davao City (MACADAC) in the 1980s with me acting as its “scout.” The rain forest at Upper B’la is not totally protected from slash-and-burn farmers or kaingineros, despite warnings from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). Narra, molave, lauan still grow inside the coconut plantation, planted between rows of coconut trees from the plains to the steep mountainside almost reaching the peak. All these trees growing

along a steep slope is a sight to behold. The twin B’la villages had become a favorite place for government programs and foreign projects all aimed to make B’la farmers more productive. A big mango plantation here was made into a model pilot mango farm by consultants of Japan International Cooperation Agency and the Department of Trade and Industry. It wasn’t surprising to learn that the DENR and the Department of Agriculture technicians are also wooing coconut farmers here to intercrop their farms with rubber trees, coffee, or cocoa crops, but not getting enough takers because of the poor farm-to-market road that remain neglected by local leaders.

THE biggest challenge the Aquino administration is now facing after steering the country to post during the first quarter the region’s highest growth rate at 7.8 percent in its gross domestic product (GDP) is how to sustain such growth at the same or even higher levels and to make it inclusive. But after posting an overwhelming victory in the political front by wading to victory his anointed senatorial and congressional candidates, sustaining President Aquino’s triumph in the economic front would not be that tough. This presupposes, of course, that he is able to muster support from among those who made it in the last election who he anointed as his candidates. If, unfortunately, Congress continues to craft laws that are outright stupendous such as that one giving the country’s centenarians 75 percent discount on goods and services that they will

What Aquino needs to support his effort at sustaining the gains of his administration in the economic front is a national legislature that knows how to craft quality laws generating more jobs through industrialization. A closer look at the factors that brought about the unprecedented GDP growth shows that agriculture, fisheries and mining were sectors that did not

contribute much. Being an agricultural country endowed with natural and mineral resources, the above sectors should have been the top contributors in fuelling such growth. But sadly they are not.

Election law

THE law is clear that candidates should file their statement of expenditures after the election period win or lose. Having lost the election, I thought it best to file these expenditures in keeping with the law. Realizing even its chairman violates the Automatic Election Law; in keeping with the “matuid na daan,” I thought it best to file anyway. Interestingly enough I was dumbfounded upon filing. Harry Tambuatco Even the Comelec receiving the form for expenditures was confused not knowing what to do with my report submission. The question then is; is the Comelec under its chairman confused with all the resolutions and all the trickery that seems to have taken place? Is this independent institution of a government body all about the purchase of machinery it forgets to administrate over its rules and regulations promoted? At the rate they are operating the Comelec there is reason to doubt them. As for the other candidates I don’t think you need to file expenditures. They don’t know what the hell they’re doing in that office anyway. What is disturbing are the employees and staff which seem to roam aimlessly around having nothing to do but watch TV all afternoon and mope. There was one staff busy selling hand bags to another staff. Then of course there as the usual geek playing games on the iPod or phone. Watching the other staff looking intently at the computer monitors, I am certain it had to

be Facebook. It is not hard to imagine how our government funds are lost in the bureaucracy like this one, and believe me there are many. Imagine the chair of the commission asking to reschedule the barangay elections because they are too busy with the last elections due to protests, the manual audit, etc. It is no wonder they are too busy when to begin with the complaints are mounting due their discrepancies. Then there is the office that has no work (or refuse to work) you be the judge. The citizenry is held hostage by the government with incompetence and irresponsibility being characteristic of the bureaucracy. What are we to do? Either way command responsibility points to the commander in chief being the president on issues like this. It makes you wonder; what is preferable... a leader who is clean and does not steel but who is incompetent or a leaders that robs us blind but is competent? Again you be the judge! There are a number of unresolved national issues that have tilted against our favor such like the China intrusion of our waters, then there are the Malaysians who blatantly hunted down Filipino Muslins belonging to the royal army of Sultan Kiram. We now have issues with Taiwan who as of this writing refuses to accept any apology from the President. Last year we witnessed the bungling of the Hong Kong tourists gunned down on national TV with the President smiles upon an ocular.

Unless the manner by which mining is being carried out in this country is totally overhauled, this industry will remain a noncontributor in propelling the economy to greater heights. Just think of the way by which mining is being carried out in Surigao where mountains are just being leveled down with the soil loaded directly to waiting ocean-going vessels for delivery and eventual processing in China, Australia and Japan. How can this type of mining contribute to the growth of the economy? Mining is supposed to be labor intensive.

Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed. And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise. And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all

Biblical reflection Bro. Edcel L. Closas the woman died also. In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife. And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God? For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the

angels which are in heaven: Take note, if we will die all of us will become a pure spirit. Luke 24:39-Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

Views Finding good journal publication

Editor: ARJAY S. FELICILDA • Email: Editorial : Advertising :

IT has been noted that articles published in scientific journals can be considered the symbol of academic performance for any scientists and especially lecturers in universities. The faculty members in any university can be proud of themselves when they have their research articles published in scientific journals. These journals can be either nationally or internationally accredited. Being accredited means that these journals have undergone rigorous scrutiny by the authorized body related to journal accreditation status. Since the development of Information and technology (IT) assisted by the sophisticated internets has penetrated the human being’s life, there have been many scientific journals rising both nationally and internationally. On the global scale, the information has been flowing in and out like the huge wave in the ocean throughout the globe. This condition makes any nations with their universities get immense information com-

Yet, it is blurring to see which information is obviously ethical or not. All universities and their faculty members are now crazy with pursuing themselves to have their research writing published in scientific journals. As an editor-in-chief of a nationally accredited scientific journal in my country, I have got a lot of articles coming in submitted by different authors. This is a nationally accredited scientific journal. Yet, with its existence of being accredited by the

We can imagine what it looks like when a scientific journal is internationally accredited. We can assume that there must be a long line of the contributors queuing to have their articles submitted and published. The articles which have been published must also undergo review by the reviewers before they are published. However, the more article contributors want their articles to be published in such journals, the more new “scientific” journals are published and have come

up with the websites. This condition leads to the blurring scientific journals published by somewhat––faked journal publications. Some call them predatory journal publications, while others term them faked journal publications. Whatever term is used by the global public community, the best way to have our articles published is to find the clear identity of the publishers. This way is intended to avoid publishing scientific articles in scientific journals with unclear accreditation status. Especially in Indonesia, the government is very serious in connection with the scientific journal publication. This is done by the government to avoid plagiarism and articles published in the so-called faked or predatory scientific journals. It is serious because the government will “punish” the faculty members of any universities who commit plagiarism and even publish their articles in faked journals. For those who have been found guilty will be punished. For example, publish-

ing the articles with fully plagiarism, just copying another author’s article and change the title, then publish it in scientific journals. The punishment is not only imposed on the authors but also the publishers. The authors can be fired from their position as lecturers or they are requested to resign from their job. The publishers may not be allowed to publish their journals and it is difficult for them to propose for getting their journals accredited. When the journals are published outside Indonesia, they are blacklisted and it can be seen in the directorate general of higher education website. This looks like a gambling between being alive and being dead in terms of the career. So far, I have just trusted on the international journal publication by IAMURE (International Association for Multidisciplinary Research). These publishers with all its scientific journals are in my consideration the clear ones and they are ISO-based publication. For that reason, it is important for those who

belong to these IAMURE editorial boards to be very prudent in pursuing the best publication through reviewing process. So far, the articles published in these journals have been sent to the reviewers and, therefore, they have undergone serious scrutiny to have good articles. Even all the articles have been presented in international seminars and thus have been “scrutinized” by the global audience orally. Some comments and criticism for improvements must be the best way to make the articles have better quality. To avoid having published scientific articles in the blurring journals thus being unethical, I would rather trust on IAMURE scientific journals than others which may be still blurring. •• DR.

Tips on effective study habits for school year 2013-2014 By Junedith Catalon

THE opening of classes has just commenced on Monday.

on their lesson plans and learning fun activities. Meanwhile, for us parents, we only want the best for our children, thus we want them to study their lessons in advance for them likely to excel in their studies. As parents, we must have the enthusiasm to encourage our children to love their subjects and even to love studying. Thus, as much as we want our children to excel,

may these tips on effective study habits be our guide to help our children achieve success through education. But, we must not forget our role as parents in guiding our children in their studies. First, plan a schedule for balanced activities. As parents, we must make it sure that ever thing is being organized, if our children have many activities for the day, our role is to let

them know that they can still do things that they want but at the end of the day, studying their lessons is of utmost concern. As the saying goes “All work no play makes Jack a dull boy”. Second, let our children plan enough time to give justice to every subject. Let our children allot ample time to each subject so that they will perform well in all subject areas.

Third, have focus.

mountains and load the soil to waiting vessels? The mining companies engaged in this type of mining in Surigao are too greedy that they don’t want to be a blessing to the country that owns the mineral resources they are extracting and the people that own such mineral resources by at least giving them jobs. Just think if they are engaged in conventional mining activities. First and foremost they would have to hire workers to prepare the mining site and workers who’ll perform actual mining above ground or underneath the earth. They would have to buy local construction materials and bring in mining equipment and machineries for their operations. If these mining companies in Surigao were required to process the extracted minerals right at their mine sites, then more people would have been employed. And if these processed minerals AFFIDAVIT OF CLAIM WITH WAIVER OF RIGHTS Notice is hereby given that SANTOS C.

are manufactured into finished products right here in our country, think of the additional work force that would be needed in these manufacturing companies and the revenue it would generate. But because the mining activity in Surigao and to a certain extent in other parts of the country are lopsidedly favoring the mining companies only, mining has never become a factor in the growth of the country’s GDP ever since. This is where legislation that is favorable to the country is badly needed if President Aquino dreams of sustaining the growth the country had posted in the first quarter. A g r i c u l t u r e’s w o e s should likewise be addressed because no real industrialization will ever occur in a country whose farmers are mired in subsistence agriculture. But the Filipino farmer is unable to mechanize his farming activity thus produce enough harvest to be churned out into manufactured goods by the factories because majority of them do not own the land they are tilling. If ever they own the land they are tilling, it is not big enough to require mechanized farming. Philippine agriculture is actually still very archaic in its nature. Unless it is modernized, nothing could be extracted from this sector in helping sustain the GDP rate we have posted. The past experience of boom-bust in the economy will again be the vicious cycle that’ll haunt us unless drastic measures are undertaken to prevent the economy from sliding down. •• (Reactions at jelbacon@ or at jelbaconii@

The most eagerly awaited part of the festival last Saturday was the launch of the biggest rocket in Laos, according to the event organizers. It was 5.5 metres long, with 900 kg of gun powder. A crane was used to position it on the launch pad. The Vientiane Times team had left before it was sent skywards but it was successful in its mission and no accidents have been reported. The festival became a showcase for the best and biggest rockets, which displays the producers’ creativity and advanced knowledge. Whether or not it was the primary reason why people, including foreigners, gathered to join the festival, it had served its purpose as they were able to experience the culture and traditions of ordinary Lao people. The attendees were able to see the Buddhist temple and offer prayers and alms to monks, who also whispered prayers for the givers, while tying white strings around their wrists. Smiling villagers got reflective responses from visitors who came from different walks of life. The one day affair offered a complete experience – spiritual, social and gastronomical. Yes! A bite of sticky rice, which was cooked inside a bamboo stalk, dipped into spicy papaya salad (tammahoung) and followed by a barbecued native chicken, exploded in the mouth like a rocket.

The Role of Education to Eradicate Poverty By FILEMON MADRANGKA

The international community underscored the need to eradicate extreme poverty and gave its collective commitment to work towards this aim through education. A commitment to poverty eradication was considered a severe injustice and an abuse of human rights. Its action programme proposes to support livelihood systems and survival skills to help poor people to combat poverty. During the World Education Forum held in Dakar in April 2000, the international community underscored the need to eradicate extreme poverty and gave its collective commitment to work towards this aim through education. The role of education in poverty eradication, in close cooperation with other social sectors, is crucial. No country has succeeded if it has not educated its people. Not only is education important in reducing poverty, it is also a key to wealth creation. Within this context, one of the pledges of the Dakar Framework for Action - Education for All: Meeting our Collective Commitments - was “to promote EFA policies within a sustainable and well-integrated sector framework clearly linked to poverty elimination and development strategies”. The role of education in this process is particularly one of achieving universal primary education and adult literacy. The report made by the SecretaryGeneral of the United Nations within the context of the Decade for the Eradication of Poverty confirms that universal primary education is central to the fight against poverty. Understandably so, because this is the level of education through which most poor children pass and within which their achievements should assist them to break the cycle of poverty. In fact, education is the social institution that reaches the largest segment of the population with the goal of guiding it through a systematic learning process. Some countries have also established offices for planning and monitoring poverty reduction policies and programmes. DFID has produced a White Paper on International Development that focuses on the eradication of extreme poverty. The World Bank has published a source book of poverty reduction strategies covering most of the dimensions of poverty and is the prime mover behind the PRSPs. Similarly, many other agencies and institutions have refocused their programmes to place greater emphasis on this persisting issue. The planned investments for poverty eradication programmes should make

an impact if they are appropriately channeled and monitored. The World Bank and IMF are instituting new frameworks to address poverty by aligning social sector development closely with macro-economic policies and strategies. One of these new efforts is the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries Initiative (HIPC) which has reduced the debt burdens of many of the world’s poorest nations, and a proposal to link debt-relief to country-owned Poverty Reduction Strategies is being negotiated. In the context of macro economic programmes, special attention must be paid to breaking the poverty cycle for children. The adoption of systemic changes should be urged to ensure good quality education for all children. Individual developing countries (e.g. Indonesia) are attempting to design their education systems so as to cater for children’s diverse needs and even to provide additional support outside academic classes. Furthermore, there are schools and communities that, particularly through NGOs and missionary groups, have successfully provided for the education of poor children. Such experiences usually combine school education with health care, guidance and counseling services and income generating activities. Unlike economic strategies, the impact of education on poverty eradication tends to be less direct, although providing long term benefits. Nonetheless, education is pivotal in breaking the vicious cycle of poverty and social exclusion that is the reality for many people. Poor children have numerous disadvantages in relation to their better-off counterparts. They are usually less healthy, their language skills less developed (a factor that has negative influence on school achievement), and they are generally less well equipped - socially, emotionally and physically - to undertake a school programme. If their disadvantaged position and different day-to-day experiences are not taken into account by school education, it is no wonder that they are unable to benefit fully from the school system. In situations of extreme poverty, girls are particularly at risk as they tend to inherit the poverty of their mothers. They are prone to abuse of all forms, and very often confined to households in which they are virtually slaves. Other groups of poor children who merit special attention are children orphaned by HIV/AIDS, street children, and children of some ethnic minorities. For them, the provision of nonacademic support and security is essential in order to contribute to their total well being and success in life. Moreover, dialogue and cooperation with parents and families should improve their participation and performance in education. As previously mentioned, wealth creation is a significant aspect


in education programmes intended to contribute to poverty eradication. How can education assist learners to create wealth? Integration of school education within the economic activities of a community is one example. For instance, in a carpet-weaving village, lessons would also cover various aspects of the carpet industry. In this way, school education would help children to improve traditional trade skills of the village alongside other curricular contents. It would ensure their future employment possibilities and contribute to the (economic) well being of the whole community. Furthermore, the school would not then be alienated from the community and traditional trades would reinforce learning. For the education system to truly respond to the needs of poor children and to contribute to wealth creation in communities and society at large, it needs to take the issue of poverty into special consideration in the planning of educational services. Essentially, it has to stress the preparation of all children to achieve at school, and empower them by heightening their awareness of their rights and responsibilities, their abilities, and enhance their self-confidence to enable them to improve their lives. The challenge calls for a stocktaking of the ‘state’ of poor children (situation, conditions, reasons for poverty, etc.) so that appropriate support can be planned and targeted to them. Education systems need to heed the lessons of successful, and less successful, initiatives implemented by NGOs, private individuals, religious bodies and Governments themselves, and translate these initiatives into policies, strategies, and specific action that can be taken to scale. The purpose of the International Workshop is to bring together educators working in poverty education policy, plans and programmes and representatives of other sectors, including health and social welfare, to exchange ideas and explore options for reaching the poorest children with good quality education. It should identify a common core of strategies to be shared among countries and to which they can refer when preparing or implementing their poverty eradication programmes. These strategies will identify steps and change processes needed at the primary level to make it more responsive to the needs of the poor. They will help countries to define more clearly and explicitly the role of education and the needs of children in their national efforts to eradicate poverty.
