PIA Press Release
Friday, January 27, 2012



By Jennifer C. Tilos

DUMAGUETE CITY, Jan. 27 (PIA) -- Eleven municipalities in Negros Oriental will be included in the Kapit Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan- Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (KALAHI-CIDSS) project of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD-7).

These municipalities have a poverty incidence of at least 33 percent.

These towns are Ayungon, Bindoy, Jimalalud, Mabinay, Manjuyod, Vallehermoso, Basay, Pamplona, Dauin, Sta. Catalina, and Zamboanguita, according to DSWD-7 information officer Aileen Lariba.

The KALAHI-CIDSS, Lariba explained, is a community-driven development program that aims to empower communities by providing livelihood projects to poor families.

The project has been recognized by the World Bank as one of the top five anti-poverty programs of government in Bohol and in Siquijor.

"Finally this year, it will be introduced in Negros Oriental," said Lariba.

The KALAHI-CIDSS project begins with people identifying their needs as a community. They participate in the project development, planning and in the implementation of the project.

DSWD-7 regional director Ma. Evelyn Macapobre has announced that “in Central Visayas alone, KALAHI-CIDSS has covered 349 barangays in 14 municipalities in the provinces of Bohol and Siquijor.”

Macapobre added that “it has served approximately 80,000 households through 454 sub-projects amounting to about P350 million” in its first implementation in those provinces. (mbcn/jct/PIA-NegOr)
