  • Data fiasco causes delays in disbursement of social assistance: Study

    first_imgTopics : The government has channeled Rp 695.2 trillion (US$47.6 billion) into its COVID-19 response, of which Rp 203.9 trillion has been allocated for social safety net programs, including the Family Hope Program and the staple food card program.The government had disbursed just 34.06 percent of the social assistance budget as of June 29, according to Finance Ministry data.President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has also brought attention to the slow disbursement of the government’s COVID-19 response funds and called on his ministers to go the extra mile to accelerate the implementation of pandemic policies.Hastuti said the staple food card program was important for poor families, as it allowed them to reduce their food expenditure for up to two weeks out of every month.Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said at a separate event on July 16 that the government was facing difficulties identifying which households to target, as it relied on insufficient data from regional administrations.The Finance Ministry is now working with both the Social Affairs Ministry and the Home Ministry to encourage and assist regional administrations to update their population data.Herbin Manuhuruk, the assistant deputy head of social compensation at the Office of the Coordinating Human Development and Culture Minister, said on July 17 that the government was planning to initiative another social assistance program to provide rice to Family Hope Program recipients from July to September.“For the COVID-19 stimulus, we cannot focus only on the Family Hope Program and the staple food card program,” said Herbin. “There is also direct cash assistance and cash aid from village funds.”According to Villages, Disadvantaged Regions and Transmigration Ministerial Regulation No 6/2020, the government has allocated Rp 22.4 trillion from the Rp 71.19 trillion in the village fund budget to provide cash transfers to 12.3 million families affected by the crisis.Village administrations across the country are reallocating between 25 and 35 percent of their village funds to provide Rp 600,000 in monthly cash aid for three months starting from April. The government decided in June to extend the aid program until September. “There are poor families that the programs have not covered and the numbers are large in some places,” Hastuti, a SMERU researcher who conducted the study, said during a virtual discussion on July 17. “All these conditions show that there is something wrong with the data.”The disbursement of all state-sponsored social assistance falls under the purview of the Social Affairs Ministry’s Integrated Data for Social Welfare (DTKS), which was built upon a 2015 Statistics Indonesia (BPS) survey that sought to map the distribution of wealth in the bottom 40 percent of the population.The unfolding pandemic has severely battered the economy and the government is expecting 4 million people to fall below the poverty line this year, increasing the number of poor to 28 million, or around 10.6 percent of the population.Around 1.63 million Indonesians fell into poverty between September last year and March, as the COVID-19 pandemic took a toll on the poor across the country, Statistics Indonesia (BPS) data showed.center_img A lack of reliable data has caused delays in the distribution of government social assistance to eligible recipients, as poverty rises amid the unfolding health crisis, a study has found.A study by the SMERU Research Institute has found that persistent issues with recipient data have contributed to delays in the disbursement of aid through two government assistance programs for the poor, namely the Family Hope Program (PKH) and the staple food card program, from the original schedule in April to as late as May and June.The study, conducted between late April and mid-May in five cities and regencies, also found indications that the aid disbursement had been mistargeted, as 400 of the 2,000 listed recipients for the social assistance in a district surveyed should have been deemed ineligible, as they had either escaped poverty or were deceased.last_img read more

  • Leising Hopes Cursive Writing Becomes Mandatory Again

    first_imgState Sen. Jean Leising (R-Oldenburg) sponsored a bill that would mandate cursive to be taught in schools.A recent proposal by Senator Jean Leising (R-Oldenburg) to bring back cursive writing in schools was approved at the Statehouse.Since 2011, the Indiana Department of Education no longer requires cursive writing in schools in favor of keyboard use.Leising has explored the issue with child psychologists. “The say that children that are not taught cursive, that are not taught to connect letters from left to right, are missing out on cognitive learning and brain development,” Leising said.“That is a learned behavior, we do not automatically know to read from left to right.”Leising has said she is not opposed to keyboard use, but hopes to see each school corporation in Indiana offer cursive. It is up to the individual if they want to use it, she explained.“I make the similarity its probably like learning to ride a bike. After you have been taught cursive, you will know how to do it. Its up to you if you want to use it.Leising has authored similar bills in the past two years that passed by the full Senate but not the in the House.The bill now will go back to the full Senate.last_img read more

  • Saints run win streak to nine games with OT win over Spartans

    first_imgThe Selkirk Saints continued to dominate the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League, but this win not easy.Selkirk overcame a two-goal deficit midway through the third period to force overtime before Kam Crawford scored the winner just 30 seconds into the extra frame to top Trinity Western University Spartans 5-4 Friday night at the Langley Events Centre.With the victory the Saints move the 9-0 on the regular season and extended their league record winning streak to begin the year. “We came out slow and tentative tonight and paid the price when TWU took advantage of some defensive lapses in the second period and capitalized on their opportunities,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois.”But even after going down two goals early in the third period our group didn’t quit. We dominated the final 20 minutes and were rewarded for turning our game around.””Hopefully we’ll show tomorrow that we learned a lesson and come out with the same intensity that we finished with tonight,” Dubois added. Crawford’s goal, through traffic to complete the comeback, was necessary after the Spartans scored on an early third period power-play to take a 4-2 lead.Jordan Wood and Logan Proulx led the way for the Saints, each picking up points on all four of Selkirk’s goals in regulation. Blueliner Jake Harcoff and forward Jamie Kreller put the hosts ahead by a pair early in the second following a scoreless first period.The teams then traded goals, with Saints defenceman Brodie Gibbon and TWU’s Jamie Russell each scoring, before Proulx brought Selkirk back within one late in the frame. Saints netminder Chris Hurry received his second start of the regular season and stopped 17 of 21 shots before being relieved by Alex Sirard following the Spartans’ fourth goal.Sirard stopped all six shots he faced and picked up the win after his team scored the final three goals of the game. In the TWU net! Harry Fredeman was outstanding in turning aside 43 shots on the night. Saturday’s rematch is set for a 1 p.m. faceoff and can be viewed online at www.fasthockey.comlast_img read more

  • South Africa’s FNB opens in Tanzania

    first_imgSAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material He added that while many banks already operate successfully in Tanzania, the market is large enough to accommodate another bank and that FNB’s products and services were well suited to the environment. 8 August 2011 “Having a physical presence here enables us to tap into one of the most attractive markets in East Africa with excellent economic growth and banking sector performance,” FNB Tanzania chief executive Richard Hudson said in a statement last week. “The roll-out of branches, products and services will be on a phased approach and will be tailored to the needs of the citizens of Tanzania.” Products suited to the market According to the statement, FNB is considering expanding its footprint into countries like Angola, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and Uganda. FNB Africa chief executive Danny Zandamela said the bank believed that Tanzania’s demographic profile offered the perfect market for their innovative products and services. “FNB’s low-cost and convenient products such as cellphone banking will directly address market conditions in Tanzania,” he said. Hudson concluded that the bank was confident of success in Tanzania and remained committed to continually growing its business in East Africa. FNB will initially focus on establishing its footprint in Dar es Salaam with the intention of expanding its representation to all regions of Tanzania. In addition to branches and ATMs, the bank’s product offering will also include online banking and mobile phone banking. Beyond its South African home market, FNB currently operates in Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland and Zambia. The group was granted a licence to operate in Tanzania in March this year. South African financial services group First National Bank has launched in Tanzania with a fully operational branch in Dar es Salaam, and plans to open two more branches in that country shortly.last_img read more
