KALAHI-CIDSS: Beyond the Infrastructure

The Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan - Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (KALAHI-CIDSS) is one of the Philippine government’s primary community empowerment and poverty alleviation programs. While KALAHI-CIDSS has various modalities, they all have one thing in common: all KALAHI-CIDSS modalities are implemented through the Community-Driven Development (CDD) approach.

From successful implementation comes local CDD adoption

It’s the first time for Brgy. Bayabason in Maramag, Bukidnon, to implement a road concreting project under the KALAHI-CIDSS NCDDP, and according to its officials, their learning experience will take them far in leading development projects in the future.

Leaving a mark of unity

“Napintas unay ti KALAHI" (KALAHI is exceptionally good).

A volunteer of barangay Cabaruyan, Daguioman in the Province of Abra shares how the KALAHI-CIDSS Project changed her life as an individual and her community as a whole.

All roads lead to development

What was once criticized as poor decision-making and a waste of limited and valuable resources turned heads and proved critics wrong, gathering praise and accolades along the way.

Rise beyond the tide

Residents of Brgy. Sua, Camaligan, Camarines Sur, has a deep and complicated relationship with the Bicol river. It gives them bountiful harvest, but it is also a cause for their woes. Through KALAHI-CIDSS, the community were empowered to face whatever challenge the mighty river has in store.
