targeted as they are able to reach out to a good number of youth in the project sites. They are also the direct beneficiaries of the majority of the activities. In the grant proposal WeDpro defined the final beneficiaries as the “general population of the cities of Angeles and Olongapo [who] stand to benefit from the project by way of improved services for trafficking and VAW victim-survivors i.e. services framed by gender responsiveness and human rights standards. They will also benefit from the increase of information available on their rights against trafficking and VAW.” During the implementation phase, the final beneficiaries are the communities / claim holders of the cities of Angeles and Olongapo who benefit from a gender and rights based governance particularly in the area of implementation of two key legislation, the Anti Violence against Women and their Children Act (Republic Act or R.A. 9262) and the AntiTrafficking in Persons Act of 2003 (Republic Act No. 9208). Given the multiplier effects of many of the Action’s main activities and spin off activities, and the extensive use of social networking sites and media, the overall total number of final beneficiaries could not be specifically ascertained. Overall, the general estimates could run to hundreds of thousands, nationally and globally. 2. Assessment of implementation of Action activities
2.1. Executive summary of the Action
For the period November 2010-April 2011 covering the Final Report, eight thousand four hundred eighty (8, 480) individuals participated; five thousand eight hundred twenty six (5,826) female participants and two thousand six hundred fifty four (2,654) male participants in forty one (41) activities. (Table 1, Project Activity Schedule, Final Report)3 . This figure does not include those who accessed WeDpro’s website, read the publicly disseminated / distributed IEC materials, watched the videos, and accessed the online releases on the project and other events which had been organized by the project implementers, participants and final beneficiaries. In the eighteen (18) months of implementation of the Action, WeDpro accomplished its intended results in terms of the action’s overall goal. The governance environment in terms of the stated goals has been enhanced, with key stakeholders at the city and barangay levels aware of the problems that beset the implementation of the laws on domestic violence / violence against women, trafficking in women and related laws protecting women’s rights, on the one hand, and establishing mechanisms to address issues and concerns including the allocations of resources on the other hand. There is a heightened awareness of the issues
An overall total of over twenty four thousand eight hundred fifty seven (24,857) individuals have directly participated and /or recipient of information and materials in the activities reported for the period November 2009-April 2011. This figure does not include those who accessed WeDpro’s website, read the publicly disseminated / distributed IEC materials, watched the videos, and other events which had been organized by the project implementers, participants and final beneficiaries.

and intensified efforts to mainstream gender and rights based perspective in programs, projects and activities. Several examples are cited in the various sections of the present report. As well, the specific objectives were achieved successfully. Examples of these include the issuance of ordinances related to the concerns on violence against women and trafficking; activation of task forces on violence against women and trafficking; the creation of antiviolence against women desks in the 33 barangays in Angeles City; the ordinance in Olongapo City mandating the allocation of five percent (5%) of the budget for gender and development mainstreaming; among others. These are explained more fully in the following sections of the present report. The project has gained credibility and support among the target groups and various stakeholders who have initiated policies, programs, projects and activities to make visible the issues of violence against women and trafficking; likewise, they have been able to expand their networks of support for VAWC and trafficking cases. There is an acceptance of the gaps and challenges related to the laws’ implementation as outlined in the research reports. (Enclosure A – one set of the Research Report and three (3) cds containing the reports) The recommendations were forwarded to appropriate local government agencies, and shared with the communities. While the mainstreaming of a gender and rights based perspective is an ongoing process, there are already various recommendations that have been taken and incorporated into the various programs, activities and projects of the target groups. From the various activities implemented and the evaluations of these activities4, stakeholders are much more aware of and are committed to sustain the cooperation and collaboration towards developing a gender-responsive governance environment. For instance, Stand AV Now!, a network composed of local government officials, the Action’s implementing partner, Buklod, and other members of the Project Steering Committee (PSC) in Olongapo City, was formed as an immediate response to a case of sex trafficking in San Marcelino, Zambales. The network has openly stated that its establishment has been inspired by and a result of their engagement with “The Red AVP”. WeDpro is supporting the network in key activities, e.g., provided contact for the inclusion of a private counsel for Charisse. The Angeles City group, on the other hand, is formalizing its network initially through the existing PSC members, and eventually to include others. Another example of the stakeholders’ commitment to sustain the Action is seen in the Project Steering Committees’ (PSCs) concrete support for and commitment to the community based theater groups, particularly in providing venues for various activities, snacks or meals, transportation, and moral support not just to the groups but to particular individuals who have sought attention and material support for their organizational and

personal needs. A recent example of this is the cash donation from the offices of Mayors Edgardo Pamintuan of Angeles City and James “Bong” Gordon of Olongapo City to two theater scholars who have been accepted to a prestigious theater arts workshop this summer (May 2011); this activity is beyond the timeframe of the present Action and has signaled the potential long-term support for one of the key project components of the present Action. The Red AVP is hoping that more support will be given even after the formal timeframe of the project. The theater development component has started to spin off into direct organizing and advocacy for the issues of VAWC and trafficking among the youth, generating not only enthusiasm among the theater scholars but providing as well a venue for the urban poor youth to discuss their issues and a space of their own to develop productively. The core group has been planning to conduct their own auditions and expand beginning June 2011. The capacity building activities were completed and served as an opportunity for the skilling and knowledge building among the target groups. The Trainers Pool which was the outcome of the fifth and last activity under the capacity building component (Training 5: Leadership and Training of Trainers) were officially recognized by both the LGUs of Angeles and Olongapo, thus partnership with the local government of both cities were strengthened. As the Trainers’ Pool has been established, eventually the beneficiaries will be the other groups including government employees and communities who are the final beneficiaries of the Action. Pilot trainings conducted by the Trainers Pool commenced a few weeks after they conducted their own training. The pilot training in Olongapo was held on 30 March 2011; the Trainers Pool facilitated the first Gender Sensitivity Training for the LGU employees of City of Olongapo. The IEC materials were distributed to the PSC members and their colleagues, government agencies, academic institutions, and the general public. Spin-off activities started even before the formal end of the project on 8th of April 2011 have been generated, to cite, the theater performances in several venues; the conduct of a digital story telling workshops and subsequent community viewings, a scholarship for two theater scholars to the prestigious PETA summer workshop. Activities and results Activity 1: Launching of the two-volume research reports, held on 14 December 2010 at Bahay ni Isis (House of Isis), Quezon City, with fifty two (52) participants (females: 47; males: 5) for one (1) day Topics/activities covered The reports are entitled "Surviving Violence and Trafficking – Stories of Women and Youth" (Angeles and Olongapo) and had its final launching on 14 December 2010 at Bahay ni Isis (Central District, Quezon City, Philippines).

The publications document the findings and recommendations, as well as feature case studies. (Annex 1, Research Report Launching photos) Specifically, the research looked into (a) the implementation status of national laws on trafficking and VAWC, in particular Republic Acts 9208 and 9262, by the LGUs and other State institutions; (b) factors affecting implementation of these laws (structural, sociocultural or political in nature); and, (c) community and civil society responses to trafficking and VAWC in the selected areas. Reason for modification for the planned activity Two mini launchings for the project stakeholders were already reported in the Interim Report. The third and last launching was originally scheduled on November 2010 but was postponed for a variety of reasons including the need for additional work on the report, editing and re-layouting, i.e., from one report to two separate reports. Results of this activity The third launching was aimed at popularizing the reports to national NGOs and governments institutions. Prof. Aurora Javate de Dios of Miriam College and the women sector representative to the Inter-Agency Council on Anti-Trafficking (IACAT), who gave the opening remarks during the launching at Bahay ni Isis emphasized the importance of the research. Founders of WeDpro including renowned artist Sandra B. Torrijos, report Editor Tezza Parel, and Ana Maria R. Nemenzo, former president of the Freedom from Debt Coalition, also graced the occasion and distributed copies of the report to the guests. The national relevance of the report is seen through two concrete examples: One day after the launching in December 2010, Prof. De Dios sent word that IACAT officials conveyed interest in the report and asked for more copies. The IACAT is headed by the secretary of the Department of Justice Secretary Leila de Lima. On May 22nd, a member of the Technical Working Group (TWG) of the IACAT requested for information about the research results, and asked for a copy of the reports, as the TWG is doing its strategic planning.
One hundred (100) in soft copies (CD format) and one hundred (100) hard copies of the research report were also distributed among the project stakeholders, launching participants and guests, and the general public. The reports were also uploaded to WeDpro’s website (http://www.wedprophils.org), facilitating broader access. WeDpro has no specific figures as to how many have accessed the reports. Activity 2: Community based Theater Development, with twenty eight (28) activities; held at various locations (Quezon City, Olongapo City and the municipality of San Narciso in Zambales; Angeles City in Pampanga), from November 2010 to April 2011, with a total minimum estimated number of four thousand one hundred thirty two (4,132) participants and audience; composed of two thousand five hundred eighty five (2,585) women and one thousand five hundred forty seven (1,547) men.
