Kalahi volunteers to represent Cordillera in nat’l congress
by Jasmin P. Kiaso

Eight community volunteers who served under the Kapit-bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS) of the Department of Social Welfare and Development will represent the Cordillera in the upcoming 3rd National Community Volunteers Congress and the 5th National BAYANiKa! Awards in Butuan City from Aug. 13 to 15.

The congress gathers exceptional community volunteers and leaders from the 14 regions where Kalahi-CIDSS National Community-Driven Development has been implemented. It is a venue for the participants to share their experiences and learn from each other’s strategies in implementing a community-driven development program. 

This year aside from focused group discussions with municipal local government unit reperesentatives, participants will visit Kalahi-CIDSS sub-projects in Agusan del Norte and Surigao Del Sur.

The sharing of community volunteers is also intended to help enrich and improve the practice and implementation of community-driven development across the country.

The BAYANiKa! Awards recognizes program partners who showed exemplary dedication in the implementation of Kalahi-CIDSS-NCDDP by putting their bayan (community) first before themselves.

The Cordillera participants are from the eight community groups who won during the BAYANiKa! regional search conducted by DSWD-CAR in 2018.

Four community-based organizations in Kapangan, Benguet, namely Cayapes Kapangan Irrigators Association Incorporated, Barangay Sub-project Management Committee of Pudong Kapangan, Cayapes Womens Organization, and Datakan Women’s Brigade took the pride of being the BAYANi for improved local governance, indigenous peoples welfare, gender and development, and peace promotion, respectively.

Two organizations in Pudtol, Apayao emerged as winners under the BAYANiKa! For Environmental Protection, and Youth category. These are the San Jose Upland Farmers’ Association and Amkiland Youth Organization.

The Natubleng Ladies Association of Buguias, Benguet won under the Sustained Community Volunteers Group category while the Senior Citizens of Barangay Quidaoen of San Juan, Abra was awarded as BAYANi under the elderly category.
