PIA Press Release

Capiz town 'shines'

by Norma Chavez

Roxas City (25 February) -- The municipality of Jamindan, Capiz has been recognized by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) as one of the best local government units (LGUs) in the country in terms of the adoption of the KALAHI process in local governance.

KALAHI, which stands for Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan, and now called KALAHI-CIDSS (Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services) is one of the pro-poor programs of the government implemented by DSWD, which presently is being tapped by the government to help Filipinos cope with the current global economic downturn through a comprehensive livelihood and emergency employment program (CLEEP).

Jamindan Community Development Information Officer Norma M. Chavez said their town mayor Ethel R. Jinon was also declared by DSWD as best Local Chief Executive for her leadership and institutionalization of the KALAHI process.

The recognition dubbed "SALAMAT PO" award includes a P500,000.00 worth of project for the best LGU category and P300,000.00 worth of project for the best LCE.

The awarding was done during the 57th anniversary celebration of the DSWD and was designed to give due recognition to partner-agencies of the DSWD innthe implementation of its programs and projects. There were recipients of the award from the Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao areas.

Mayor Jinon received the twin awards from DSWD Secretary Esperanza Cabral.

The KALAHI process is participatory and is also anchored on transparency and accountability.

The lady town mayor is one of local chief executives in the country who have adopted the KALAHI process by institutionalizing the Municipal Coordinating Team (MCT) and conducting Participatory Situational Analysis (PSA) in the identification of community problems and their solutions in every barangay.

Chavez said their chief municipal executive is adopting the process in pursuing her development agenda that is embodied in her vision of "Shining Jamindan." (PIA/CDIO) [top]
