Brief History of Coryville, Barangay La Paz, Makati City
It was almost 60 years ago when this part of Makati was opened by the Ayala
Corporation as its first post war residential subdivision. It used to be part of Barrio Tejeros
carved out of rice land, water lilies, kangkong, talahib and other swamp undergrowth.
But even for those who start a new home they can truly call their own, it was a good
enough place to live in. By May 1949, no more than five families have built their modern
homes.
To give us a clearer picture of the marginalized community named Coryville, we
conducted an interview with Hon. Ferdinand Concepcion, Barangay Captain of
Barangay La Paz.

Interview: Coryville
“Kangkungan ang Coryville dati ngunit nasunog siya.Yun ang isa sa
mga pinakamalaking sunog na nangyari sa Makati. Kaya naging Coryville kasi si
Cory aquino ang presidente noong mga panahong iyon. Nakiusap ang mga
residente na ibigay na lang ang lupa sakanila na pagmamay-ari ng SAN
DIEGO. Tapos, inaward sa kanila something like 1986. Ipinasok sa parang
housing project and then pinangalan kay Cory kaya Coryville”

Kadalasan early pregnancy nangyayari lalo na kasi hindi nakakapagaral lalo na yung patambay tambay. Yung sa rights naman ng babae. Mostly nagpapacheck dito sa center kasi libre naman yung pang-ospital Hinihikayat naman namin sila mag-aral. Pero ngayon mga dayo na lang yung crimes. Kaya siguro sila natatakot na. Hindi naman nila pinapalaglag yung bata. Mostly sa magulang muna kami nagaapproach pero parang ayaw nila.Interview: Rights of Children “Dyan ako nasakit ang ulo kasi minsan inaabuso na ng mga kabataan yung rights nila. Minsan maanakan lang then konting away tapos maghihiwalay na. etc. Pero ngayon minimize na rin kasi nakikita namin sa CCTV kasi pag nakagamit na di na natutulog kaya minsan pinapatawag ko and kinakausap ko.

Pero kapag may biyaya kunwari may 500 na ipapamigay dun dadagsain kami dito.” Interview: Livelihood “Fishball fishball ganun.

But poverty swallows that dream of change. One of its weaknesses is the laziness of its people to participate in the programs of their barangay for their welfare. But. Edsel: Coryville community has many strengths and weaknesses as a community though considered marginalized by many. they can start a change in their lives. We can say that if they implement these projects properly and all of the people in Coryville would actively participate then they would create a better community. hunger. But the community is capable of change because of the potential of its people to make the change and be the start of something new. When it comes to vulnerability. They should cooperate with the barangay officials because they want nothing but good for them. but it is capable of many things. With a big population. and broken relationships of different families.ASSESSMENT What are the capacity and vulnerability of the community? Junica: The community in Coryville at Barangay La Paz is capable of many things. Their community is not getting any better because of the unending hunger. has still a chance to change. unemployment. malnutrition. malnutrition. because I believe that change starts with your family. Hillary: In line with the interview we had with Hon. I personally believe that Coryville. they can start a progressive change if only they put their hearts into molding a new and brighter future. Jeanne: Coryville may be considered as a marginalized community. If only they use the benefits from the local officials. being a marginalized community. the number one weakness would be poverty. having this state of . It’s very difficult for a community with a growing number of children to somehow deal with the rapid run of the economy. unemployment and illiteracy of the people. Concepcion. They just need a little push and for their leaders to be more strict. Another is the lack of leadership in their association to implement rules and policies for their people. We have learned about the many projects and opportunities that their local officials is trying to pursue. One of this is that the population of the people living there is big.

. child labor and malnutrition.difficulty to handle day-to-day life is not a hindrance for them to rise us a community and to sail against the big currents. People from there strive to maintain their population. the people of Coryville seem to lack concern about these seminars and it is often neglected. What are the issues confronting the community? Junica: As stated above. the local government shall do an even and proper dissemination of information in a way that these people will be encourage to join and take part with the programs of the local government. unemployment and illiteracy caused by lack of education. Jubelene: The capacity of the community is that it has several seminars that assist its people in addressing the recurring problems in their community. causing more problems such as lack of quality education. hunger. resulting to more problems in the community. unemployment. drug addiction. the issues confronting the community are. However. growing population due to early pregnancies. malnutrition. cope with. resist and recover from the impact of the recurring issue. unemployment and the lack of education of the youth. As I could see. Edsel: The issues confronting the community are malnutrition. illiteracy. Sheen: The community of Coryville has been vulnerable in terms of their population growth and lack of jobs that can sustain their living. people in Coryville just lack the determination and awareness of the things that are now leaving them behind. Jeanne: Malnutrition. Ronald: The capacity of the community is that they can still have developments because of the availability of the resources. The community has the diminished capacity or vulnerability to anticipate. Projects implemented by their local government are not enough to give them a drive instead.

There are many “tambays” in the community because of unemployment. They have been a problem of the country. Jubelene: Some issues that are confronting the community of Coryville are malnutrition. of almost every community in the Philippines since long ago. Children are committing crimes at such an early age. and this time. they would do it again. what concerns recurring and what are new? Junica: Almost all of these concerns are not new. malnutrition and unwanted pregnancies of women at an early age. illiteracy caused by lack of education of the youth. out of school youth. Wood houses are built side by side which can cause maximum damage if ever a fire accident occurred. Sheen: Rapid population growth means more mouths to feed.Hillary: The issues confronting Coryville are alarming number of unemployed. The youth comprises a large part in their community and due to the hardships in life caused by poverty. There are not enough houses for people to live in. . they tend to do whatever it takes to be able to sustain their family's need even when involves doing bad things. they would stop pushing or using drugs whenever the barangay officials raided their community but as time goes by. all of the problems stated above are recurring and therefore. Jeanne: Drug issues are recurring. thus increasing the community's crime rate. becoming worse. they planned to have a watchman that serves as an alarm when officials will raid their community again. Actually. Ronald: The issues are the number of out of school youth / “tambays” and malnutrition. teenage pregnancy and drug abuse. Based on the interviews and walk. Cases of drug usage and robbery is still continuing.

Although the "main man" was already caught. Why do you think those issues you mentioned are happening in the community? Junica: It is a half-half fault. teenage pregnancy seems to be the problem that local officials find it hard to restrain. Sheen: Based on the interview we conducted. coordinate governance. Ronald: A recurring concern is about the reduction of the malnutrition percentage among children in the community and about the effective utilization of the volunteers as a factor in helping the parents to care for their children. Concerns such as unemployment. . People there are pretty much aware if there is a watchman ahead and they could easily act upon it as if everything’s in a normal state. Those are just normal for the current state of our country. if people are not responsible enough for their own actions then a proper government would be of no advantage. All problems are recurring but the barangay officials are doing its best to avoid and halt these concerns. they are still others who buy outside of the community then sell it inside. the issue of drug use of the people in Coryville is recurring. Even with a full. And the problem of possession of illegal drugs is a new problem. On the other hand. Hillary: Concerns with regards to this community are never new to us. All have been a talk of the town but there were little improvements to those cases. Government has been acting slowly to resolve these alarming concerns. 50% of it is caused by improper governance and 50% is irresponsibility of the citizens.Edsel: Most of the concerns where pertaining to the use of drugs inside the community. early pregnancies and such are evident even on the wider scope. We don’t want to put all the blame on the government. Jubelene: The problem of malnutrition is recurring given that the percentage of it was lessened before. Dozens of young people gives birth at an early age and it continues to be the prevailing problem in the community.

They just depend on the local officials and in our government to improve their living condition and not act on their own to help themselves. must move to start a change in their lives. Ronald: There are lots of issues happening in the community but the main conflict is in the problem of malnutrition. Hillary: Looking at a two perspective: local government and the people. too. the people of CoryVille should not always depend on the barangay officials. people shall take part and be responsible enough to resolve the issues of their own community. Edsel: I think those issues are happening in the community because of the lack of leadership. What possible solutions can the local government do to address these issues? Junica: Offer the community a better service and never stop on encouraging the people to do something good for themselves and the community. they. We’re not putting all the blame on the local government because I know that they’re doing their part as the officials entrusted by the people. it could be because of the shortcomings of the local government but it could also be due to the lack of cooperation and the responsibility of the residents. And. On the other hand. Due to this. especially the out of school youth. . Jubelene: I think these issues are happening in the community because most of the people have nothing to do.Jeanne: I think the barangay officials need to double their efforts to have the problems under their control and the citizens of the community must cooperate with them also. they become involved in drugs and pre-marital sex resulting to teenage pregnancy. The officals should put more effort in organizing and controlling their people but I also think that the people should cooperate to fix these issues. Sheen: Those problems keep on happening because of lack of discipline and irresponsibility of the youth.

And also. they need to double their efforts and encourage the people of CoryVille to change for the better. what possible solutions can you do? We can help implement and support the local government and nongovernment programs and/or projects to help the people of Coryville in building a better. Allocating also funds from the government's budget and raising money from the other sectors of economy could help fight the poverty. As a group. This entails revisiting and studying the poverty framework to form a strategy that would result to easier access of the people addressing their vulnerability. brighter future ahead them. By means of lending and extending our hand. Hillary: It has something to do with the proper and regular dissemination of the program and/or projects of the local government. . at least. then all else follows. try to encourage people to join and participate in their community welfare programs. Edsel: The local government should be strict in implementing their rules and policies in the community and encourage the people to participate to make Coryville a better community. Sheen: There is an urgent need to enhance government's programs. Jubelene: One possible solution that the local government can do to address these issues is by proper dissemination of information to the community regarding the several seminars. If there’s a proper dissemination. we could.Jeanne: As what I have said. aligning other sectors with nutrition goals. there should be a continuous monitoring and assessing of the community in order for the local government to execute services to be handed to the people in Coryville. devoting funds to nutrition programs. free health checkups and free medicines they have for their community. Ronald: The local can solve this by sustaining global commitment.

It is the key to attain a better future. Edsel: Education and poverty is the main issue about the community that has been touched by the UNIK seminar. Jeanne: Poverty. if not to the greater extent. Because education has been the primary key of knowledge. As far as I can remember. we’ve moved a block closer. Sheen: One of the speakers in UNIK Seminar named Grace Santos discussed the issue of poverty and helped me reflect on the community walk we conducted. there are a lot of organizations doing their best to improve the life of people in marginalized areas through social innovation. we are able to comprehend things around us but we lack the interpretation of it. If we treat these issues seriously we can prevent it and fix it immediately. The project became the people’s hope for a better future. a speaker proudly showed us their projects about livelihood for people who can’t afford basic necessities every day. . Without education. How are we going to be responsible enough if we don’t value education? Through educating people. According to her. we are a step nearer to change. We believe that education is the key to our goals. We just need to cooperate as one and be as one in solving these issues for Coryville to be better as a community Hillary: One issue touched by the UNIK Seminar was about education. there is a great chance that all will be ignorant of worldly matters. but at least. Those alarming issues will never matter simply because we don’t have enough awareness and knowledge about it. She said that poverty is a wicked problem and we need to find new ways of working together to move people out of poverty. If we start educating the people of Coryville and if we help all the children living there to be able to attend school then somehow we are one step in helping them face the continuing issues of their community.Is there an issue that has been touched by the UNIK seminar and how did the speakers addressed them? Junica: One of the issues would probably be about education.

. talked about how UNIID-SEA uses social innovation to address each problem. Ronald: I think the issue that has been touched by the UNIK Seminar is the right to vote. The people must know how to vote wisely for greater improvements in our country. one of the speakers from UNIID-SEA.Jubelene: Yes. Grace Santos. some of the issues have been touched by the UNIK seminar. Ms.

Therefore. we propose to have a seminar that will teach the people in Coryville what to buy and how to prepare healthy foods for the children.

it is clear that Coryville belonged in a marginalized sector of our country. A much more restriction and discipline are needed by the youth and they must act to help themselves so that they might be able to improve the living conditions of their community. we can say that their barangay has adequate facilities and good access that can sustain their living. Based on our observations. but it does not mean that their local officials aren't doing anything to improve their condition. The only problem we have seen was the rapid population growth of the people living there. Through our community walk. The possible challenges that we might encounter in the formulation of our CDP is the participation of the people in our plans and how will they react to it. which has social change as its end goal. And this will be very helpful to attain the objective of lessening the percentage rate of malnutrition in Coryville. Because for our CDP to work. The possible outcome of our proposed project is that the parents from the Coryville will learn how to prepare a healthier food plan for their family. . it gave us a clearer picture of the big problem our country has been facing right now. Poverty and inequality in the Philippines remains a challenge. Although difficult. Upon visiting the community of Coryville in the city of Makati.REFLECTION Community development is generally considered to be a core competent of social work practice and knowledge. One way is conducting a lot of community development. we need the community to cooperate and another problem that we might face is our lack of knowledge of the community. You can see crowds of young people who are victims of teenage pregnancy. I have seen with my own naked eyes why Philippines is experiencing a widespread poverty. poverty may still be solved and thus we must act quickly to solve this problem. The difficulty we had encountered in the preparation of our CDP for the community is that there are several problems in the community and we have to choose which one should be solved now. We should know how to interact to them and how to get their attention so that we can discuss and implement our proposed project for them and for their welfare. which helps students to see the perspective of the people belonging in the marginalized sector of our country and awaken us to serve more in our country. We reflect on the responsibilities we have within our work.
