KALAHI-CIDSS:KKB vies for Best Practices Award

Tacloban City (November 18) -- The KALAHI-CIDSS: KKB Project which is being implemented by the Department of Social Welfare and Development is one of the contenders for the Best Practices Award.

DSWD Field Office 8 Assistant Regional Director Jaime Eclavea informed the Philippine Information Agency that representatives of the National Economic Development Authority Central Office were at Balangiga, Eastern Samar on Tuesday, November 16, 2010 to interview the volunteers of the KALAHI-CIDSS:KKB project which was implemented in the municipality during the period 2003 to 2006.

The interview was part of the rigid screening for the Best Practices Award, a competition contested by eight government agencies in the country, ARD Eclavea said.

Balangiga was chosen as the area for the validation of best practices because of the successful implementation of the KALAHI-CIDSS: KKB Project and the learnings and lessons learned by project stakeholders.

The interview which was held at Barangay Uno was participated by the volunteers and barangay officials who figured prominently during project implementation.

Mr. Marciano Deladia Jr. Who accompanied the NEDA representatives said he was confident that the volunteers and the barangay officials would be able to answer the questions confidently as they have mastered the KALAHI-CIDSS processes. The volunteers led by the previous Barangay Chairman Natividad Catuday were able to answer all the questions asked by NEDA representatives Ms. Aleli Lopez and Grachel Manguni.

The search for Best Practices Award seeks for the best government project that responds to positive project impact and project sustainability. The questions asked probed into impact of the projects, community participation, and how the volunteers can use the additional skills they learned from project implementation.

ARD Eclavea is confident that the KALAHI-CIDSS: KKB has the best fighting form to cinch the award.

"The people will speak for the project. This is the project that seeks the poor and gives the intervention needed provided they participate and follow the process that calls for participation, transparency, and accountability," ARD Eclavea said.

It was learned that the KALAHI-CIDSS: KKB of the DSWD was the third of the eight contending government projects interviewed and validated.

Other contending agencies are DepEd, DOH, DTI, and the ARMM Social Fund. (PIA 8) [top]
