Kalahi-CIDSS aims to empower communities through participation in decision-making in ways that will improve their skills, strengthen their sense of responsibility and human dignity, to use community projects as a vehicle to promote representation, accountability and reduce poverty, and to strengthen the linkage between communities and their local government units.

Kolambugan Mayor Lorenzo V. Mañigos said “Kalahi-CIDSS paved the way towards empowering local communities, improving local governance, and reducing poverty. The amazing achievement brought about by Kalahi-CIDSS in every municipality, especially Kolambugan, is a great evidence of the principle of community driven development, the involvement, cooperation, teamwork and most of all volunteerism. I optimistically dream that regardless of educational background – once a community resident is given the chance to develop their potential through capacity building that certain person will bloom and will give his best to become a useful member of the community where he belongs, because learning leads to empowerment.”

To achieve sustainable growth and poverty reduction in developing countries, the World Bank commits resources to building stronger institutions and organizations in client countries. World Bank helps build capacity through a variety of means, including technical assistance, studies, equipment, and training.

The World Bank believes that individuals need trainings so that they are better able to contribute to their country’s development goals. One of the World Bank’s goals by 2030 is to end extreme poverty by decreasing the percentage of people living on less than $1.90 a day to no more than 3%. The World Bank is a vital source of financial and technical assistance to developing countries around the world.
