Filling his shoes: Rodelyn’s CDD Story

Story by Necil H. Bigno, DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS Community Empowerment Facilitator


Rodelyn D Cabrera, 37, Purok 2, Lower Sagadan, Baroy, Lanao del Norte taking a break from construction work at the site of the 120 Linear Meter Seawall community sub-project.

Rodelyn D Cabrera, 37, Purok 2, Lower Sagadan, Baroy, Lanao del Norte, is married to Enrico Cabrera and is a mother of two. Enrico is a fisherman, however,  this is not enough to sustain their family’s basic needs.

Rodelyn accepts “labada” (laundry services) from their neighbors. There are times when she even accepts all-around household cleanups. Rodelyn exerts more effort in ways to produce income – other than their children, they are raising three other children, abandoned by her sister who is a widow.

Rodelyn’s family is a Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) beneficiary, and falls under the level one (or survival stage) based on the social welfare assessment. This means that the family belongs to the poorest of the poor.

Jenny Cabatingan, a 4Ps Municipal Link endorsed the family for prioritization in the work once the construction of the DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS Community Sub-Project began.

In September of 2016, the community sub-project of Lower Sagadan started, Enrico was among the workforce. Enrico, however, only lasted for a day, fallen ill and unable to continue. The Barangay Sub-Project Management Committee (BSPMC) of Lower Sagadan, on the other hand, acknowledged that the family needs the opportunity to work in the construction considering the number of children they raise.

Rodelyn was then advised to continue the work for her husband. This housewife in turn blossomed into a graceful yet vigorous construction worker as the implementation of the community sub-project progressed. Other laborers noticed that Rodelyn was doing the work faster than the others, one enthused that “grabe na si Rodelyn, kung mopala mas paspas pa kaysa sa lalaki, murag wala sa bokabularyo niya ang bughat (Rodelyn is really good, she shovels faster than the men, as if the word relapse isn’t found in her vocabulary).”

Rodelyn says, “pagkahuman nako diri sa construction, moadto pa ko sa bukid para mangahoy kay dili nako masaligan ang akoang bana nga moadto didto kay naay sakit (after I work in the construction site, I still need to go find firewood, I cannot rely on my husband for that, now that he has an illness).”

The community sub-project follows a “shifting” method of cycling through the workforce who are also members of the community, each laborer is allotted a 1-week schedule due to the bulk of interested takers. However, a foreman can recommend for a laborer to continue for other schedules to expedite construction progress, in turn, the laborer will be able to continue working on the following shift.

The foreman took notice of Rodelyn’s hard work and enthusiasm as she is always on the foreman’s list of laborers, “kung naa ang akoa pangalan sa lista maam, motrabaho ko (if my name is on the list, I would really work)” Rodelyn says.

Though the pay she received from working on the sub-project was not enough to sustain daily needs and her husband’s medication, Rodelyn says she is still thankful for the opportunity, and hopes that there could be more community-based projects where the community can earn while implementing the projects.

“Bahalag init o maulanan ko pagkahapon basta tagaan lang ko sa Ginoo ug maayo nga panglawas, motrabaho jud ko para sa akoang pamilya (I don’t mind the heat or rain, as long God gives me good health, I will work for my family)” Rodelyn concludes.

The DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS community subproject in Lower Saganan, Baroy, Lanao del Norte is the construction of a 120 Linear Meter Seawall which stretches from Purok 2 through Purok 5 of the barangay and costs P2,825,874.00. The DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS grant of P2,509,291.94 and a local cash counterpart from the Province of Lanao del Norte of P46,946.00.

The Municipality of Baroy also provided a total of P169,853.00, both in cash and in-kind local counterparts. The Barangay Local Government of Lower Sagadan also contributed 10% of their barangay development fund amounting to P32,083.06.

The community of Lower Sagadan also provided a total of P67,700.00 in-kind contributions. The community also accomplished the sub-project within the 90 calendar days stipulated in the sub-project implementation from September to December 2016.

Community-Driven Development (CDD) is an approach that gives the community control of the development process, resources and decision making authority and regarded as the best assessors of the needs that their communities. The communities also have the responsibility of implementing, managing, and operating the sub-projects they have planned as well as maintenance. In the Philippines, CDD is implemented through the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services – National Community-Driven Development Program (Kalahi-CIDSS NCDDP) under the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

A CDD Story: Tatay Eslao

Story by Necil H. Bigno, DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS Community Empowerment Facilitator

TATAY ESLAO. Estanislao “Eslao” Singgo, 78, of Purok 1, Lower Sagadan, Baroy, Lanao del Norte was once a farmer in Gingoog City. However, alcohol dependency forced him to return home to Baroy. Having no family of his own, Tatay Eslao lives with his two sisters who are 50 and 54 years old respectively. They were all raised in poverty which he puts it as “isang kahig, isang tuka” (a Filipino term used to describe extreme poverty liking one’s daily life to that of how a chicken gathers food), and were unable to finish their education.

as a construction aide of the DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS
Community Sub-Project in Barangay Lower Sagadan.

Tatay Eslao and his sisters rely heavily on “utang” (loan) from neighbors to sustain their basic daily needs, without any assurance of actually obtaining a loan on a daily basis – or how to pay back the debt.

Neighbors have lent Tatay Eslao, “pasalamat ko kay naay mag-pautang, bisan og bugas, pero kung wala, wala pud ko’y mabuhat (I am thankful that some would lend me some, even rice, but if they can’t, I also cannot do anything about it).”

Prior to the commencement of the implementation of the DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS Community Sub Project of Lower Sagadan, which is the construction of a 120 Linear Meter Seawall, all purok leaders together with the established Barangay Sub-Project Management Committee (BSPMC) convened and informed all skilled and non-skilled residents of the labor opportunity during the construction.

Rollybeth C. Santiago, purok leader of Purok 1 and a member of the BSPMC, immediately informed Tatay Eslao about the opportunity. This sparked Tatay Eslao’s interest and grabbed the chance.

However, on his first day of work shift, Tatay Eslao unfortunately got injured. His left pinky finger was accidentally hit by a sharp, uneven stone during hauling. Because of this, he was relieved from work and was only able to receive a day’s work compensation.

After weeks of being in medical treatment, Tatay Eslao was given a go signal by the BSPMC and the foreman to resume another scheduled work load.

Despite his age, he is optimistic that he would be of help to the community – in ways that he can. He believes that as long as life gave him the strength and perseverance to continue living, he would work to earn, and be grateful.

This gave opportunity for Tatay Eslao to repay his debts to some of the kind-hearted community residents who have also helped him. He is hopeful that other opportunities would come along to uplift his current situation and that of his sisters.

Lumad Women learn their value through CDD

By Nico B. Capistrano , Former DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS Community Empowerment Facilitator

“kasagara kaming mga babaeng lumad sige ra’g burosan sa among mga bana, ibilin ra sa balay ipagbantay og bata, usahay pasakitan pa… pero dire sa Kalahi-CIDSS gitagaan kami og bili ug importansiya nga naay daghan nga mga butang nga kaya sa mga babae sama sa mga lalake”

Jeraline Arion
BSPMC Chairperson
Barangay Palacpacan,
San Fernando, Bukidnon

Barangay Palacpacan is an isolated barangay of the Municipality of San Fernando, Bukidnon. The road is difficult to access especially during the rainy season. Most of the residents of the barangay are people of the Matigsalug Tribe.

Like the other tribes in Bukidnon, most of the lumads are given less priority from the government projects that would uplift them for a better life.

This is because they have minimal support and most have no access to basic social services within their communities. With this, the only priority they have is to eat and survive.

Time passes and now some of the government agencies are now reaching and responding to address the needs in the community.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is one of the agencies that help address the development of lumad people, providing them basic social services. Among the myriad of programs is the DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS.

Jeraline Arion, DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS BSPMC Chairperson of Barangay Palacpacan, San Fernando, Bukidnon, performs during the Regional Community Volunteers’ Congress in Cagayan de Oro City, March 27, 2018.

Jeraline Arion is the Barangay Sub-Project Management Committee Chairperson (BSPMC) of Barangay Palacpacan, who strives to help the community by participating in government programs provide basic social services and empower the communities.

Jeraline is a Matigsalug and an active Parent Leader of the Pantawid Pamilya Pilipino Program (4Ps) and Sustainable Livelihood Program Association (SLPA) leader.

Jeraline Arion says Daghan kaayo kog natun-an sa programa sa Kalahi-CIDSS, dili lamang ang katungod nga magpartisipar sa kalambuan sa Barangay kun dili apil usab nga gitagaan kaming mga Lumad og higayon nga magpartisipar sa programa bisag wala kami nakahuman og skwela (I learned a lot from the Kalahi-CIDSS program, not just having the right to participate in Barangay development, also, we, the Lumad people are given the opportunity to participate in the program even if we have not finished any degree)”

For her, DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS is the first government program that gave opportunities to the Lumad people in handling the processes of the activities and giving them the power of decision making.

Women laborers of Barangay Palacpacan, San Fernando, Bukidnon sack aggregates for delivery to the sub-project site.

Through the Kalahi-CIDSS, Jeraline felt that she and her Lumad community now have the voice through the program.

The Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services – National Community-Driven Development Program (Kalahi-CIDSS NCDDP) is a program under the DSWD that empowers communities. The program uses Community-Driven Development (CDD) as an approach to let the communities identify problems, use available resources, and decide solutions to help the community in order to have access of good basic social services.

The communities are given the opportunities to voice out their needs in the barangay by participating in the local development processes with the help of the non-government organizations, Local Government Units, Area Coordinating Teams (ACT), Sub-Regional Project Management Team (SRMPT), and Regional Project Management Team (RPMT) to ensure that they become actively involved in the local processes.

 “Dili sayon gayud nga mahimong leader sa Kalahi kay kaming mga Lumad wala na-anad magpadayag sa kadaghanan, kay kabalo kami nga wala kami grado nga ikapaghinambog pero tungod sa mga meetings ug trainings sa Kalahi ug pagdumala sa sub-project namo nga Farm-to-Market Road nadasig ako og taas na akong paglantaw sa akong kaugalingon karon kaysa sa una (It is not easy being a Kalahi leader, as we the Lumad people are not used to addressing a lot of people, because we know that we do not have educational degrees to boast for, but because of the meetings and trainings provided by Kalahi and the implementation of our Farm-to-Market Road sub-project – I am now enthusiastic and I now have high regard for myself as compared before)” says Jeraline.

This inspired her to continue schooling and graduate from the K-12 program of the Department of Education (DepEd) at the Halapitan National High School, San Fernando, Bukidnon.

Jeraline draws inspiration from the Kalahi-CIDSS community empowerment and gender equality perspective of the program“kasagara kaming mga babaeng lumad sige ra’g burosan sa among mga bana, ibilin ra sa balay ipagbantay og bata, usahay pasakitan pa, pero dili tanang Lumad, og mao ra gyud ang among mabuhat isip mga babae, pero dire sa Kalahi-CIDSS gitagaan kami og bili ug importansiya nga naay daghan nga mga butang nga kaya sa mga babae dili lang ang mga lalake (usually, we, the Lumad women, are just being impregnated by our husbands, left in the house to care for the children, and may be hurt at times – but not all Lumads, and that is all we could do as women, but here in Kalahi-CIDSS we are given value and importance, that there are a lot of things that women can do equally as men do)” Jeraline said.

The program requires women to participate every activity especially during Sub-Project construction of at least 30% of the labor force in order to promote gender equality and importance. 

The implementation of DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS in Barangay Palacpacan is not without challenges, Pasalamat mi kay taas kaayo og pasensiya ang among facilitator sa pagtudlo sa amo unsaon paghimo sa mga minutes, pagprepare sa payroll ug bayronon sa mga materyales, pag-inventory sa materyales ug uban pang butang. Bisag lisod kami pasab-ton tungod kay walay nahuman sa pagskwela apan sa among mga kasaypanan wala kami nagmahay kay daghan kamig natun-an sa programa og nabati namo mga Lumad nga kabahin kami sa pagpalambo sa among barangay (we are thankful that our community empowerment facilitator is very patient in teaching us how to draft the minutes of the meetings, payroll preparation, payment and inventory for construction materials and other things. Even if we are very difficult to teach since do not have any formal education, we do not regret being in the Kalahi program. It is here that we Lumad women felt that we can contribute to the progress of our barangay)” Jeraline said.

The program is a good venue for learning different skills such as financial management, Environmental and Social Safeguards, Social Development, Construction Management, Basic Legal Documents, and other things that may help the Lumad community to educate themselves and to boost their confidence.

According to the community, the DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS is a blessing to Palacpacan and San Fernando especially to the Lumad people. The Lumad community is given the opportunity through the support of the DSWD and local government units that help them grow and be part of nation building. Jeraline is hoping that the program will continue to help not only the Lumad people but also for those community or tribe who has been left behind that needs support to achieve a better and humane society.

Ang Tulay sa Kinabuhi (The Bridge of Life)

By Danna Jill Ebiza – Pagaling, (former CEF of San Fernando) DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS Area Coordinator

Each community has different and unique challenges, some with great challenges yet easily resolved, some appear so easy and simple yet it wounds so deep that the community itself couldn’t help but seek help from others.

Completed Construction of Vented Spillway Bridge in Barangay Da-o, San Fernando, Bukidnon

This story gives us a picture of the experiences of the residents in the community specifically at the river where the sub-project is located.

Barangay Da-o in the Municipality of San Fernando, Bukidnon has a population of 1,145 with 353 households. It has five puroks and two sitios; one of it is Sitio Kiranggel. The Barangay is home to the Matigsalug Tribe. Farming (Corn, Rice, Banana among others) is the main source of income for the communities here; small-scale mining is also a source of income in Da-o.

The barangay is 29 kilometers away from Poblacion Halapitan. The modes of transportation are jeepneys and hired motorcycles. It takes an hour and a half to travel to the barangay proper. Thus, there is difficulty on emergency responses because of its terrain and distance. Barangay Da-o was then affected by an armed conflict; in 2004 there was an encounter between New People’s Army and Philippine Army. Many soldiers of the Philippine Army were killed, but there were no civilian casualties. Currently, the security of the community is considerably safer than before according to residents.

According to the Punong Barangay, Medy M. Mancilla, during year 2010 & 2015 there were flash floods that devastated the communities killing adults and children who were then crossing the river just to get home from their farm and from neighboring barangays.

The main reason that the community volunteers decided on the Construction of Spillway Bridge as their number one priority is knowing that this intervention answers the need of the people.

Community volunteer, Marivic Palo says “Dili na namu gusto nga aduna pay mga kinabuhi nga ma kalas ug masayang panahon nga muabut na usab ang daku nga baha (We don’t want loss of lives again, should there be floods again)”. This was based on Barangay Participatory Situational Analysis result and as decided by the Barangay assembly, it was approved. Before year 2016 concluded, there are 4 rivers to cross before reaching Barangay Da-o, and one of these is the specific location of the current sub-project.

Barangay Da-o is one of the nine recipients of DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS NCDDP with P20M grant in San Fernando for the 1st cycle. Barangay Da-o has a sub-project of Construction of 12 meter vented spillway bridge with reinforced concrete pavement having a total cost of P1,357,686.95.

The spillway bridge sub-project started its implementation on February of 2017 after months of trying to solve the problem by the community volunteers and Barangay officials. The implementation was delayed for more than a year since there were uncontrollable situations that arose in the community the moment it started the implementation. The community itself could not help but seek assistance from other partners just to solve the problem.

All residents are the direct beneficiaries of the sub-project thus, everyone is excited to work and be involved with the implementation. The target of the sub-project is not just the physical structure but of the purpose that the community people has involvement, responsibility, accountability and ownership towards the sub-project.

In August of 2017, the sub-project was 100% completed. The community people involved during sub-project implementation is very grateful for the success completion of the sub-project. As what the Barangay Sub-Project Management Committee (BSPMC) chairman, Josar M. Acain, said after the completion of the sub-project, “Ang kahumanan sa proyekto kadaugan ug kalampusan usab sa mga lumulopyo sa komunidad (the completion of the project is victory and achievement of the residents of the community).”

There is now an easy access going in and out of the community. Residents and children no longer feel in danger as they pass the spillway bridge be it day or night. The farmers are more grateful since the sub-project totally addressed the need for convenient transportation of farm products to the market.

Damage to the community sub-project brought about by Tropical Storm Vinta

Four months after the sub-project completion, on December 22, 2017, a flash flood came with Tropical Storm Vinta, residents of the community attested that for many years they lived in the place – it was the first time they have seen the flood seemingly wanting to destroy everything. This damaged the sub-project spillway bridge.

The BSPMC and the Barangay Council yet again encountered a problem after the incident because the headwalls of the spillway were damaged and boulders that blocked the flow of the water. The Kalahi-CIDSS community account is already fully utilized and has since been closed leaving the community to fend off for themselves or find ways to fund the repair of the affected parts of the spillway bridge.

Damaged repaired on the affected parts of the community sub-project with the help of the local government unit of San Fernando, Bukidnon

The barangay, with the community, sought help from the Local Government Unit of San Fernando which responded to their request in 6 month’s time.

Volunteers of Barangay Da-o have learned how to help and work together in times of challenges, be it light or heavy; today, the community maintains positivity, with the belief that through unity, hardwork and dedication, any challenge they encounter can be resolved.

Awards, October 2-4, Cebu City.

Pagsaulog 2018 provides a venue for community volunteers and Bayani Ka! Awardees to freely share and exchange stories, initiatives, and unique practices that helped realize CDD in their localities as the event facilitated breakout sessions. Pagsaulog also recognizes the efforts and initiatives made by the community volunteers, partner LGUs, and other stakeholders in pushing for the institutionalization of Community-Driven Development (CDD) in their respective municipalities.

Una sa tanan dako kaayo akong pasalamat sa Kalahi-CIDSS NCDDP, tungod kay nakataak gyud ko ug Cebu nga wala damha ug akong nahimamat ang mga nagkalain-laing tribu kabahin sa ilang tagsa-tagsa ka implementasyon sa programa, akong napamalandungan sa akong kaugalingon nga luyo diay sa akong pag-antos ug pagsakripisyo naa diay kalipay nga akong matagamtaman nga dili nako mahikalimtan sa tibook nakong kinabuhi (first, thank you very much to Kalahi-CIDSS NCDDP, I reached Cebu because of it, here I got to meet different tribes and listen to their experiences in the implementation of the program, I said to myself – there is happiness after all hardships and sacrifices, I won’t forget this for the rest of my life) ” says Charlyn.

Nievan said “the 2nd National Community Volunteers’ Congress is a once in a lifetime experience in which the volunteers had field trips to different places where Kalahi-CIDSS exist for a sharing of experiences and practices in the implementation of Community-Driven Development (CDD) approach. As a volunteer, I learned a lot, like community empowerment – in many aspects which I thought was impossible from the very start.”

“I learned how to deal with different people in the community compassionately and patiently. I learned how to be a volunteer-leader in the community with a heart. Best of all, I learned to love to be a volunteer. In my whole life, I always carry this simple quote of mine which serves also as my energizer in doing my tasks (both as a volunteer and as a mentor) untiringly, When one loves, no service seems too hard” Nievan continues.

“Definitely, when we love our work, when we love to volunteer, when there is love, no matter how hard the work is, no matter how there will be conflicts of time and resources, and no matter how heavy the loads we carry, it seems all of these is just a light, simple and easy task to do” Nievan concludes.

Geraldine also shares her experience during Pagsaulog 2018, “sa dihang niabot na ang panahon sa paglarga padulong Cebu, October 1 pa lang sa gabii tua na ko sa airport – didto na ko natulog kay mahadlok ko nga mabyaan sa eroplano, doble akong gibati, kahadlok ug excited, excited kay first time pa nako makasakay sa eroplano (when it was time to travel to Cebu, I was already at the airport on the night of October 1, I slept there because I was afraid I might miss my flight, I had mixed emotions – both scared and excited, excited because it was my first time to be on an airplane).”

Nagadto mi sa Municipality sa Moalboal, tulo ka oras kapin ang byahe but enjoy ra kay daghan view among nakita nga sa TV ra nako usahay makita, nakita usab namo ang Naga nga diin daghan nakalas ng kinabuhi tungod sa landslide, makasubo (we also went to the Municipality of Moalboal, it was a three-hour trip but we enjoyed it because we saw different landscapes that we only get to see on TV, we also saw Naga where there were many lives lost due to landslide, it was heartbreaking)” continues Geraldine.

Rozgoni, welcomed us and revealed that she also hails from Don Carlos, Bukidnon)” enthused Geraldine.

Niadto pud mi sa Barangay Saavedra, Moalboal para sa usa ka field visit, didto namo nasinati ang experiences nila paagi sa us aka focus group discussion, adunay kasakit ug kalipay, makarelate mi sa ilang mga gipangbati isip volunteers (we then went to Barangay Saavedra, Moalboal for a field visit, there we heard their experiences through a focus group discussion, there was pain and happiness, we could really sympathize with them as we are also volunteers)” says Geraldine.

Isang karangalan ang ma imbita ng National Community Volunteers’ Congress dahil doon ko nakita kung gaano ka ganda at epektebo ang programa ng DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS sa ating gobyerno. Dito, may mga bagong tao akong nakikilala at naging kaibigan sa iba’t-ibang lugar ng Pilipinas na nakasama ko sa congress (It is an honor to have been invited to the National Community Volunteers’ Congress, it was here that I saw how beautiful and effective the DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS program of our government is.

Busa, ako mapasalamaton gyud sa Kalahi-CIDSS nga maoy ni tubag sa among panginahanglan, ug bahin usab sa akong kaugalingon nahimo kong lig-on ug mapaubsanon sa tanan nga mga pagsulay, during implementation sa maong project (I am thankful for Kalahi-CIDSS that paved the way to facilitate our needs, and I learned to be humble in the face of challenges during the implementation of the sub-project)” says Evelyn.

“A potpourri like experience where different stories uncluttered in one bowl, stories that are canvassed from aspiration and authored with integrity” says Jabonillo.

“Learnings are the best experience, you don’t just learn by your own experience but hearing all those testimonies and experiences from different people uplift and motivate you to continue volunteerism, inspiring and priceless efforts” shares Bete.

“National Community Congress is an opportune event. Opportune in the sense things happen amazingly, where meeting new people, getting together for a while and eventually become friends, shared happy and tearful experiences about being a volunteer, I am even more motivated to encourage more people in the community to be a volunteer” enthused Damming

Blaya also shares “during the congress, I have seen and observed the cultures of the Filipinos. The Ifugaos are a kind people and based on my interview, their manner of planting is still organic and do not use any chemical fertilizer. We just realized that gaining knowledge is more valuable than money it can’t be compensated by anything.”

“The activity was exemplary it enabled us to fathom and appreciate the experiences and hard-earned success of the community volunteers in engaging and implementing Community-Driven Development (CDD) in their respective communities. Personally, it motivates me to exert my efforts to continue assisting the volunteers and in delivering the social services to the people in order for them to feel the government’s aid that was once labeled as abstract. Also, the community volunteers are the activity’s highlight, showcasing the outcomes of collaborative efforts of the different stakeholders to empower the communities and bring development in their place. Lastly, the activity signifies the community volunteers as agents of change that in the future will influence other people and communities to do the same” says Avelino.

Pagsaulog 2018 also gave birth to the national network of CDD champions dubbed as the Kalahi-CIDSS Community Volunteers Association of the Philippines. Each regional delegation selected a representative to the said association that will be formalized on December 5 this year during the celebration of the International Volunteers Day. The Northern Mindanao delegation will be represented by Nievan Llacuna, community volunteer from Barangay Sindangan, Talisayan, Misamis Oriental. Nievan is also a public school teacher by profession.

Pagsaulog 2018 aims at providing an opportunity for the community volunteers and program implementers to promote CDD institutionalization.

Some Community Volunteers from different regions visit Barangay Saavedra, Moalboal in Cebu during the 2nd day of Pagsaulog 2018: The 2nd National Community Volunteers’ Congress. Here, volunteers shared their experiences in the implementation of the DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS community sub-projects.

DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS in Region 10 covers 45 municipalities in the Provinces of Bukidnon, Lanao del Norte, Misamis Occidental, and Misamis Oriental with a total of 1,105 barangays funded since 2015, amounting to Php 992,386,007.41. This covers Cycles 1 through 3 of the implementation, with a total of 112,279 community volunteers involved in the sub-project implementations.

The 1105 community sub-projects include roads, water systems, health stations, flood control structures, electrification, school buildings, pre/post-harvest facilities, foot paths, sea walls, training centers, public markets, and spillways among others. Topping the list of community sub-projects are roads with 599 and water systems with 92.

The DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS and its community volunteers are advocating for Community-Driven Development institutionalization in the local governments for the continuation and sustainability of its gains and empowered communities.

CDD in Action: DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS holds Knowledge Management Forum

MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) through its community empowerment program, Kapit-bisig Laban sa Kahirapan Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services – National Community-Driven Development Program (Kalahi-CIDSS NCDDP), holds a Learning Event and Knowledge Management Forum, Sequoia Hotel, Quezon City, Manila, September 18-19, 2018.

DSWD Undersecretary Maria Lourdes T. Jarabe emphasized the importance of data and researches for program implementation and how this would help streamline the Kalahi-CIDSS successor program. This, as the Kalahi-CIDSS is in its closing phase in 2019.

The learning event dubbed as CDD (Community-Driven Development) in Action: Empowering Communities through Research and Knowledge Exchange is facilitated by the Kalahi-CIDSS Monitoring and Evaluation Unit (M&E) headed by Deputy National M&E Specialist Abigail de la Cruz.

DSWD Undersecretary Maria Lourdes T. Jarabe emphasized the importance of data and researches for program implementation and how this would help streamline the Kalahi-CIDSS successor program. This, as the Kalahi-CIDSS is in its closing phase in 2019. Undersecretary Jarabe also said that with researches conducted for the program – its results can help address the gaps in the program implementation. Undersecretary Jarabe also acts as the Deputy National Program Director and OIC for Kalahi-CIDSS NCDDP.

CDD in Action showcased national and regional studies conducted on Kalahi-CIDSS, and gathered comments and feedback from the program’s partners and stakeholders on these studies, mainly on ways to promote CDD and determining the challenging areas of the program.

The plenary sessions provided an avenue for the participants to organize a community of practice for continuous and regular exchange of information on community-driven development.

Alongside with the implementation of Kalahi-CIDSS since 2003, various studies were also conducted to assess program effectiveness at different levels through qualitative and/or quantitative approaches. Some interesting facts generated through these researches include: Kalahi-CIDSS was projected to generate a conservatively estimated economic internal rate of return of 21 percent and a net present value of P1.03 billion. (Measuring the Costs and Benefits of Community Driven Development: The
KALAHI-CIDSS Project, 2007)

It was also found out that Kalahi-CIDSS is an effective platform for integrating key elements of an effective local poverty reduction strategy. It provides citizens an experience in project management that gave them voice, held leaders accountable and able to demand transparency. (The KALAHI-CIDSS Project in the Philippines: Sharing Knowledge on Community-Driven Development, 2012)

Roads and water systems were the projects most desired by households and barangay officials. Barangay assembly attendance was reportedly high, with 68% of households indicating having a member attend in the past 6 months. (Impact evaluation of the Kalahi-CIDSS: Baseline Report, 2014)

Kalahi-CIDSS National Communication Specialist Ma Rosario Consuelo Lagman presented Knowledge Products and endeavors which are produced by the different social marketing officers of DSWD regional field offices.

Volunteers have become more confident, had leadership opportunities, acquired construction skills, and had found employment as staff in the barangay or in Kalahi-CIDSS. (Process Evaluation of Kalahi-CIDSS 2015)

In a case study conducted in July 2016, it was notably observed that there was a fast-paced organizing done by the community people. As the time of data collection, all (28), except two barangays had established women’s organizations in less than a year. Some organizations were reactivated (Kalahi-CIDSS NCDDP Process Documentation: Assessing Philippines’ Community-Driven Development Fast Tracked Response to Natural Disasters, 2016)

Kalahi-CIDSS National Communication Specialist Ma Rosario Consuelo Lagman presented Knowledge Products and endeavors which are produced by the different social marketing officers of DSWD regional field offices.

“What the studies tell us is that the poor, especially the marginalized such as the indigenous peoples and people living in conflict-affected areas, can truly benefit from the community-driven development approach. The results prove that giving communities control over decisions and resources makes people-centered development possible even in the most challenging contexts”, Lagman says.

She also said “the feedback given by the government agencies, representatives from the academe, and civil society organizations that now comprise DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS’ newly-formed Community of Practice will also help us address the challenges and strengthen the program implementation”.

The learning event dubbed as CDD (Community-Driven Development) in Action: Empowering Communities through Research and Knowledge Exchange is facilitated by the Kalahi-CIDSS Monitoring and Evaluation Unit (M&E) headed by Deputy National M&E Specialist Abigail de la Cruz.

This event highlights the different Kalahi-CIDSS national studies: TECHNICAL ASSESSMENT AND ECONOMIC ANALYSIS FOR THE KC-NCDDP PHILIPPINES (World Bank 2016) by Maria Loreto Padua, Social Development Specialist – World Bank; ENHANCING COMMUNITY-DRIVEN DEVELOPMENT THROUGH CONVERGENCE: A Case Study of Household and Community-Based Initiative in the Philippine Villages (ADB 2015).

CDD in Action also featured three regional studies by Todd Lucero, Rodolfo Nillosguin Jr, Christine June Arapoc, regional monitoring and evaluation specialist of DSWD Field Offices 7, 9, and 12 respectively.

Undersecretary Maria Lourdes T. Jarabe, in her closing message, highlighted the value of convergence, as evidenced by the national and regional studies presented in the forum. Policy reform agenda is a step closer when partners in development continue to do research and share what they know on CDD.

These studies add to the knowledge base of community-driven development. The good practices and lessons learned by the implementers serve as benchmark for other communities yet to adopt the participatory approached in lifting households out of poverty by providing them access to basic social services. More than their official publication, these good practices and lessons are meant to be shared to partners and stakeholders to inform program evaluation and policy reform agenda, through a learning event and knowledge management forum.

DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS in Region 10 covers 45 municipalities in the Provinces of Bukidnon, Lanao del Norte, Misamis Occidental, and Misamis Oriental with a total of 1,105 barangays funded since 2015, amounting to Php 992,386,007.41.

P500 matag bulan ang madawat sa Social Pensioner, dili P6,000 – DSWD

File Photo: UCT Payout to DSWD Social Pension beneficiaries in Gingoog City.

Giklaro sa Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) nga P500 ang matag bulan nga madawat sa mga benepisaryo ilalom sa Social Pension Program ug dili P6,000 sumala sa nikatap nga fake news sa social media.

Ang Social Pension Program ayuda sa mga kabus nga edaran nga mga lolo ug lola subay sa Expanded Senior Citizens Act of 2010 or Republic Act 9994. Ilalom sa nasangpit nga balaod, ang mga mag-edad og 60 anyos pa taas kwalipikado nga makadawat og P500 nga pension kung siya hinay, masakiton o adunay kabilinggan; walay gidawatan nga pension sa Social Security System (SSS), Government Services Insurance System (GSIS) o uban pang social security institution sa gobyerno; ug walay permanente nga income o wala gisuportahan alang sa iyang mga panginahanglanon matag adlaw, sama sa tambal.

Ang DSWD gahatag og ayuda sa mga social pensioners matag tulo ka bulan o P1,500 matag quarter, hinungdan nga mokabat kini ngadto sa P6,000 sa sulod sa usa ka tuig.

Gihangyo ni DSWD Secretary Virginia N. Orogo ang publiko nga dili i-share ang sayop nga impormasyon aron dili na makahimo og kalibog sa publiko.

Iyang gidugang nga bukas nga DSWD sa pagtubag sa mga pangutana lambigit sa mga programa ug serbisyo sa ahensiya.

“Using inaccurate data is not helpful to the public. Much as we appreciate efforts to help DSWD in information dissemination, it would be best that fact-checking to be done first with reliable sources before sharing,” matud niya.

Sa pagkakaron, adunay 2,906,079 ka mga social pensioners nga nakadawat na og ayuda sulod sa ikaduhang quarter ning tuiga.
