Masbate LGUs demand for more community-driven dev’t projects

by CL Martinez

LEGAZPI CITY (4 April) -- With the phasing out of the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (KALAHI-CIDSS) program in the province of Masbate, people’s organizations as well as local government units (LGUs) from the barangay to the provincial levels are asking for more projects with a community driven development (DCC) approach, if not a possible extension of KALAHI-CIDSS program..

Community folk in the towns of Aroroy and Batuan in Masbate expressed hopes that development projects such as KALAHI-CIDSS would continue to be implemented in their respective areas.

Aroroy Mayor Arturo Vicente P. Maristela, Jr. said “development efforts have given the people a chance to change values and attitudes towards their growth.

Maristela stressed “we are willing to work and we have allotted P2 million for the localization of KALAHI-CIDSS in the town.”

He also committed the municipal staff in sustaining implemented community projects under KALAHI-CIDSS with the Municipal Planning and Development Office (MPPDO) as lead in the monitoring of projects.

A municipal sustainability plan was launched by the LGU to ensure the continued operation and maintenance of the sub-projects.

In Batuan, townsfolk are saddened by the phase-out of KALAHI-CIDSS program, said Alfredo Yuson, Jr., community volunteer in said town.

Yuson while expressing “deep gratitude for a number of community projects that has empowered the residents in their community,” said an extension of the program would help a lot for the improvement of the community.

KALAHI-CIDSS is implemented in there cycles in every target area with each cycle lasting for one year. (KCRSMO/PIA) [top]
