CLSU 1997-01: Nueva Ecija Women LGU Partners in the Promotion and Utilization of Technologies and Enterprises Development

The study described the Nueva Ecija Women organization particularly the Pagkakaisa ng mga Kababaihan sa Nueva Ecija (PK-NE). It focused on the organization’s operation and management of 11 women organization’s in the two congressional districts in the province. Interview schedules were formulated and used to obtain the needed information. The organizations need legal identity as they were not registered; some have no official offices and staff to perform organizational support activities. They were able to implement economic and social projects and were able to generate funds from their own fund raising and by sourcing-out funds from external sources. Women organizations have to be trained, motivated and guided by the LGUs and other sectors to strengthen their capabilities in the promotion of technologies, enterprise development and empowerment towards better quality of life. Major problems besetting the organizations were: inadequate funds to support social and economic projects, political intervention or influence which affect project activities, weak management, dole-out mentality and inadequate/lack of information. Recommendations to strengthen women organizations include: the LGUs must identify specific office in the provincial or municipal structure to directly coordinate, assist, supervise and monitor women organizations; conduct training to enhance the women’s management, entrepreneurial, leadership, communication and technological skills.
