PIA Press Release

Gov. Dimaporo turns over P1.8M check to Lala LGU

Tubod, Lanao del Norte (24 September) -- Gov. Khalid Dimaporo handed over a check amounting to P1.8 million to Lala Mayor Allan Lim representing the provincial counterpart fund for implementation of the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan- Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (KALAHI-CIDSS) program in the municipality.

"We are so happy and we consider ourselves very lucky that we have a very dynamic Governor who fully supports the municipalities especially in laudable programs like the KALAHI-CIDSS," Mayor Lim expressed.

The KALAHI-CIDSS is the brainchild of Social Welfare and Development Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman. It is the Philippine government's flagship poverty-alleviation project implemented by the Department of Social Welfare and Development through the financial support of the World Bank.

KALAHI-CIDSS' built-in transparency mechanisms have nearly attained for the Project a nil record in graft and corruption. Through a complaints and grievance system, issues pertaining to the project are addressed expeditiously.

All of the 27 barangays will be granted projects totaling to P450 thousand each bringing the total project cost for the municipality of Lala to more than P12 million.

Funds for the approved projects will be released directly to the barangay's KALAHI-CIDSS bank accounts. Residents also manage, monitor and supervise the implementation of sub-projects. These sub-projects have been observed to be implemented faster and cheaper compared to traditional implementation of projects in the Philippines.

"During the municipal inter-barangay forum, at least 80% of the residents must agree on the project that they will endorse. It is the people in these communities who will decide for themselves the projects they want," Municipal Planning and Development Coordinator Ramonito Liwanag explained.

The greatest legacy of KALAHI-CIDSS is not in the number of structures it is able to provide the communities. It is in the number of people transformed to become more proactive, empowered, and resourceful members of the community who could determine their own paths of development and raise themselves from poverty.
