DSWD KALAHI-CIDSS hones ACTs

Legazpi City (21 February) -- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) through its Kapit Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services, Kapangyarihan at Kaunlaran sa Barangay (KALAHI-CIDSS:KKB), has conducted training for Area Coordinating Team (ACT) on Local Legislation and Facilitation and Skills Training.

The activity, conducted February 11-15, 2008 at the Casablanca Hotel here, aims to provide an overview of the local government system and enhance the knowledge of the ACT both in the procedural and in participatory dimension of legislation in local government units.

As the lead implementer of the project, ACTs need to be equipped with skills on facilitation to have the competence and confidence in interacting with the community volunteers and the stakeholders.

"The training on Local Legislation, Facilitation Skills is an expressed need of the ACT," said Liza San Buenaventura, KALAHI-CIDSS Regional Training Associate.

San Buenaventura said the ACTs are to conduct numerous on-site consultations, meetings and assemblies. "These activities prompt the ACTs to make presentations and orientation about the program."

All the Area Coordinating Teams in Bicol, composed of a social worker, engineer, financial analyst and facilitator, attended the training as required.

In other development, a Quality Assurance and Quality Control Skills Coaching was also conducted last February 6 and 8 to provide the Deputy Area Coordinators (DAC) the knowledge in implementing Community Driven Development in the context of rural development.

The workshop aimed to craft a catch up plan which will be used to fast track implementation of the KALAHI-CIDSS in their respective municipalities.

KALAHI-CIDSS:KKB is a poverty alleviation project that empowers communities, strengthens local governance and hastens development in the barangays. It is being implemented by the DSWD with funding support from the government and the World Bank.

In Bicol region, KALAHI-CIDSS covers more than 20 municipalities in five provinces - Camarines Sur, Camarines Norte, Albay, Catanduanes and Sorsogon. (DSWD 5, SMU/PIA) [top]
