The Coordinating Cabinet of Social Policies through the Unified System of Beneficiaries (SIUBEN), under the direction of Vice President Rafael Alburquerque, initiated a pilot program this past weekend in which it will gather census information, using a new mobile device, among poor homes in the municipality of Santo Domingo East. The pilot plan involves the use of new technology from the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the Commercial Office of the People’s Republic of China. The pilot plan will gather information in some 700 low income homes in the Los Mina North neighborhood.
Ms. Rodríguez de Simó said that with the incorporation of this cutting edge technology, SIUBEN guarantees high level efficiency and an improvement in the quality of data collected by census takers who deal with the forms filled out by families. This, she added, helps to determine the living situations of families and how or if their level of poverty has changed since they last did a manual census.
Valerie Julliand, resident representative of the UNDP, stressed the importance of this pilot plan and praised the contribution of the Unified System of Beneficiaries. She called the plan an important step for the Dominican Republic in that it allows the country to develop a social policy focused totally on the country’s poor people.
Julliand said that since 2004, the UNDP has been working closely with SIUBEN in that the role of this organization is to collaborate with the government to make certain that social policies are developed and that they achieve their desired goal.
The operation began in home of an undocumented single mother who lives with her three children and nine grandchildren in a small house on a small street known as “The Boulevard of Three Cardboards” in the Los Mina neighborhood which was visited by representatives of SIUBEN and other international organizations.
