Project Title: Women Organizations and Networks Delivering Assistance for COVID-19 Response (WONDER) Philippines

Project Description

Having one of the highest number of people who have contracted COVID-19 in Asia, the Philippines continues to face the adverse economic and health system effects of the pandemic. On the economic side, many businesses struggle to resume their full operations, including community-based microenterprises in the garments manufacturing sector. As an adaptive measure, many of these micro-enterprises had to shift to manufacturing of other products, particularly of reusable face masks for which there was an increase in demand. While some of these microenterprises have the capacity to produce community face coverings (CFCs), they do so without following government-approved standards and have limited access to suppliers of needed raw materials that are also up to government standards. As such, they are not able to participate in the economic opportunity provided by government's order to procure and distribute 30 million CFCs, particularly to vulnerable populations. 

With respect to the health system, government has required the use of face masks and face shields to prevent the community transmission of COVID-19. However, these are not accessible or readily available to all segments of the population. This is implied by government’s recent order for certain government agencies to procure 30 million CFCs to be distributed freely to those who could not afford it.   To date, gaps remain in the production of these PPEs and even in the provision of other essential health supplies especially to the most vulnerable sectors, including those who are in correctional facilities for women, orphanages, and homes for the elderly.

In response to these challenges, the project aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • To support the livelihood of community-based manufacturers of CFCs by providing them with
    • Skills training (community mask production following UNDP quality standards, digital skills or e-commerce, and others)
    • Production and marketing support (raw materials needed for production and market linkages, including through the Empower PH platform)
    • Guaranteed demand for quality CFCs produced
  • To catalyze critical linkages, through UNDP's EMPOWER PH local manufacturing matching digital platform and public and private networks, that will support the sustainability of the women groups’ new source of income
  • To provide CFCs and other essential health supplies to identified vulnerable populations.

The engagement of a Project Coordinator is needed to provide management and oversight support to the implementation of the initiative of UNDP in empowering women groups in the garments sector and providing essential supplies of vulnerable populations.
