The choice for the greater good

THE CHOICE FOR THE GREATER GOOD

Emelia Abraham, a resident of Brgy. Kanlurang Calutan in Agdangan, Quezon, now enjoys holding the hands of her two daughters than her pails of water.

“Lahat kami dito dati, ang hawak-hawak ay container habang papunta sa kabilang barangay para mag-igib ng tubig. Doon lang kasi may supply. Pero dahil sa Kalahi-CIDSS, nagkaroon ng tubig dito sa barangay namin,” said 34-year old Emelia.

The Kalahi-CIDSS or Kapit Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services is a program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) that aims to provide communities with access to basic social services through implementing need-responsive projects identified by the people themselves. The communities are empowered to plan, decide, and implement the sub-project.

During the first cycle of Kalahi-CIDSS in Agdangan, Brgy. Kanlurang Calutan was one of the four prioritized barangays and was allocated with PhP2.15 million grant.

The community volunteers, including Emelia who is a member of the Monitoring and Inspection Team, proposed for a water system level II sub-project to provide water supply to the 313 households of the barangay. They developed proposals and procured the needed materials to install water pump and tank, pipelines, and 20 communal tap stands in the community.

Based on their estimate, 15 tap stands can be installed with the budget. But because of bayanihan, they were able to save funds and install five more.

“Marami ang hindi na nagpabayad ng ilang araw sa kanilang gawa at inilaan na lang ang makukuhang sweldo sa pagpapagawa ng dagdag na tap stand. Kaya naman nagawa naming malagyan ng tap stands ang buong barangay,” Emelia explained.

The community volunteers also constructed a one unit communal comfort room (CR) at the central part of the barangay.

“Bukod sa water system ay napagkasunduan din namin na magpatayo ng CR sa barangay dahil walang palikuran ang ibang kabahayan. Kaya madalas ay sa damuhan lang sila dumudumi. Kung minsan ay nangangamoy na ang paligid. Kung may CR, mapapanatili ang kalinisan sa barangay,” she added.

Taking responsibility

Emelia said that the community’s hands-on involvement in making the sub-project possible gave them a strong sense of ownership to it. They are even willing to take charge of its maintenance as well.

In June 2013, the volunteers formed the Kanlurang Calutan Water System Association (KCWSA) which served as the operations and maintenance group for the sub-project. They assigned caretakers on each tap stand who manage water distribution to households which costs PhP2.00 per container.

“Naniningil kami para magkaroon ng savings. Mas malaking tipid naman ito kasi hindi na namin kailangan gumastos ng pamasahe papuntang kabilang barangay para mag-igib. Tsaka mas mahal din ang singil doon na PhP15.00 kada container,” Emelia explained who is also the bookkeeper of the KCWSA.

“May mga patakaran din kaming sinusunod para sa maayos na pagkonsumo ng tubig. Ang caretaker lang ang may susi sa metro at pwedeng magpasalok para maiwasan ang aksaya sa tubig at masingil din ng tama ang mga nag-iigib,” she added.

The collection is regularly deposited to the KCWSA’s bank account for savings on future repairs of the sub-project.

“Sa koleksyon namin nakuha ang pagpapapalit ng mga gripo sa tap stand kasama na rin ang kuntador at pump nang masira na ito. Sa ganoong sistema, madali kaming nakakakuha ng pampagawa sa mga nasisira,” she said.

Continuing development, together

As the community volunteers of Kanlurang Calutan continue to manage their water system level II sub-project, they were also now preparing for another Kalahi-CIDSS cycle of implementation in their barangay.

This time, Emelia heads the community volunteers as the Barangay Sub-Project Management Committee (BSPMC) Chairperson.

“Ang proposed project naman namin ngayon ay improvement ng barangay road papuntang E.Licup Elementary School. Maputik kasi ang daan papunta ‘dun. Bukod sa kaligtasan ng mga estudyante, gusto rin naming maayos ang daan para madaling makapag-evacuate. Ang E.Licup kasi ang nagsisilbing kandungan namin sa panahon ng bagyo,” Emelia explained.

Barangay Kanlurang Calutan is allocated with PhP1.15 million grant. The project is expected to ease the travel of 300 households in the barangay.

Though happy with the new project, Emelia shared she sacrificed a work opportunity to volunteer again for Kalahi-CIDSS.

“Sa totoo lang ay dapat lilipat na kaming mag-anak sa Batangas dahil mamamasukan ako sa isa naming kakilala. Libre na ang tirahan namin dun. Pero hindi muna kami tumuloy at sinabi kong kailangan ko munang gampanan ang tungkulin ko dito bilang volunteer,” Emelia shared.

“Kung bukal naman kasi sa loob mo, hindi ka na magdadalawang isip na mag-volunteer ulit. Malaking bagay na rin sa akin na nagkakaroon ako ng dagdag kaalaman dito lalo na’t grade six lang ang natapos ko. At hanggang kaya ko, gagampanan ko ang tungkulin ko para sa ikagaganda ng aming barangay,” she humbly added.

As long as the community members are committed to improve their barangay, Emilia is more willing to offer her service even if it costs her a good chance to make her own life better. For her, it is more worthy and fulfilling to work for the greater good.

Calutan water system project.

Emelia Abraham, 34, is one of the Kalahi-CIDSS volunteers who strived to provide a regular water supply for the 313 households of Brgy. Kanlurang Calutan in Agdangan, Quezon. In 2012, they implemented the water system level II sub-project where they installed water pump and tank, pipelines, and 20 communal tap stands to distribute water in the community.

In order to ensure continuous operation of their subproject, Emelia and the other residents of the community formed the Kanlurang Calutan Water System Association (KCWSA).  To date, the group already have a total Php10,190.92 earnings.

Opportunities lit up for the community

The farmers of Brgy. Cawayanin Ibaba in Catanauan, Quezon hastily roll down their sleeves as the sun starts to set.

“Lahat ay hinahabol ang liwanag hanggang makauwi sa bahay. Nakakatakot kasing maglakad kapag gabi na dahil sobrang dilim at wala naman kaming ilaw sa lugar,” shared 64-year old Felix de Gala, a farmer and resident in the community.

More than half of Brgy. Cawayanin Ibaba’s land area is blessed with hectares of rice fields, corn, coconut, and other agricultural crops. The farmers enjoy the bountiful harvests at day but worry at night since stealing of agricultural products is typical in their area.

“Dahil walang ilaw at madilim, madalas kaming manakawan ng ani. Minsan, kahit mga alaga naming baboy ninanakaw. Ang hirap na nga ng buhay, mawawalan ka pa ng pagkakakitaan,” Felix shared in frustration.

But all these problems fade when light came in their barangay.

The light of hope

In 2013, the DSWD project Kalahi-CIDSS PAMANA assisted the electrification sub-project of Brgy. Cawayanin Ibaba. Kalahi-CIDSS PAMANA or Kapit Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services Payapa at Masaganang Pamayanan aims to empower conflict-affected barangays in the planning, decision-making and implementation of need-responsive projects that would hasten the delivery of social services and normalize the community’s living condition.

Felix became the chairperson of the electrification sub-project. He was given advice that it is hard to complete the needed permits and documents from the electric distributor before the community could actually implement the sub-project. But he was still willing to pursue it even if it would take a lot of trips to the distributor’s office in the municipality of Pitogo, which is 50 kilometers away from Catanauan.

“Minsan, dukot bulsa na talaga para sa pamasahe namin papuntang Pitogo. Pero iniisip ko na lang na malaki naman ang magiging kapalit nito sa aming barangay,” Felix shared.

After they have complied with all the requirements, they faced even more challenges with the procurement of materials. Since the supplies needed were not available within the municipality, the Procurement Team volunteers went to other towns of Candelaria, Lucena, and Tiaong to canvass for the cable wires, lamp posts, and other electric and construction materials.

“Na-delay din kami ng halos isang buwan sa implementation dahil mahirap makakuha ng mga materyales na kailangan. Pero noong nakabili na kami at mismong gawaan na ng proyekto, marami ang nag-bayanihan para hindi na rin ito matagalan pa,” shared Felix.

After months of surpassing the difficulties, Felix proudly affirmed that the willingness and participation of the volunteers prevailed in bringing the light to the community.

Brighter possibilities

The PhP366,371.00 electrification sub-project of Brgy. Cawayanin Ibaba was able to give light to 30 households and install seven street lights in the area.

The households now supplied with electricity were able to start new livelihood like selling ice, cold drinks, and other chilled products in their sari-sari stores. Poultry raisers also bought incubators for easy development of farm eggs and chicks.

Moreover, stealing was lessened as farmers put light in storage areas to easily watch over their agricultural products.

“Laking kaginhawaan ng ilaw sa hanapbuhay namin,” Felix added.

He also shared that the process of Kalahi-CIDSS PAMANA enlightened them to work hard for the improvement of their community.

Barangay Cawayanin Ibaba had coordinated with another government agency to implement the Sitio Electrification Program (SEP) in their barangay. Through the assistance of SEP, Brgy. Cawayanin Ibaba is expected to have complete electrification and 31 additional street lights this 2015.

Also this year, Brgy. Cawayanin Ibaba will be implementing another project cycle of PAMANA through the expanded KALAHI CIDSS-National Community Driven Development Program (KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP). KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP is the extension of operations of community driven development approach, which was the process undertaken by the previous Kalahi-CIDSS.

Through KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP PAMANA, the community proposes to improve their pathway along the rice fields traversing to the nearest main road. They are planning to make the pathway wide enough for vehicles to pass through.

“Binubuhat lang kasi namin ang mga sako papunta sa highway. Mahal din kasi ang upa sa kalabaw. Mas magiging madali kung makakapasok na mismo ang tricycle at motor dito sa amin,” Felix shared.

Spending most of his life as a farmer in Brgy. Cawayanin Ibaba, Felix has seen the changes in their lives and the various opportunities they had because of the community projects. Now, they have easier means to reach for a brighter future.

Farmers and volunteer workers

Aside from bringing food to the table, the farmers of Brgy. Cawayanin Ibaba in Catanauan, Quezon also gave a bright future for their community. In 2013, they volunteered for the Kalahi-CIDSS electrification sub-project, which now brought light to 30 households residing in the area. These farmers-volunteers also tapped other government agency to implement the Sitio Electrification Program in their community which aims to provide the whole barangay with complete electric supply this 2015.

San Antonio volunteers bag award in 1st “Bayani Ka!” Search

The volunteers of Kapit Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services-National Community Driven Development Program (KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP) in Brgy. Pulo, San Antonio, Quezon was hailed as the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) national winner for group-volunteerism category during the “Bayani Ka!” awarding ceremony held at Asian Institute Management, Makati on January 23.

Barangay Pulo volunteers formed the Brgy. Pulo Water System Association (BAPWASA) for the operations and maintenance of their Kalahi-CIDSS water well drilling sub-project completed in 2013.

According to BAPWASA President Gloria Rearte, the community is dedicated to maintain the good condition of the sub-project because it became the solution to the insufficient and tainted water supply of 74 households in the barangay.

This year, the BAPWASA volunteers again for their KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP water system sub-project to provide communal tap stands in different parts of the barangay.

Aside from BAPWASA, 16 winners from other regions were also awarded during the ceremony under the categories of group, individual, and local government unit that best represent the KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP core themes – gender, environment protection, improved local governance, indigenous peoples’ welfare, volunteerism, and peace.

Further, special awards were given on the categories of senior citizen, youth, person with disability, participatory governance (PLGU and MLGU), and best area coordinating team. The awardees received plaque of recognition and cash prize.

DSWD Secretary Corazon “Dinky” Juliano-Soliman expressed her gratitude to the winners for the dedication and support to improve their communities through the KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP.

“Indeed, working together is not just a dream or a slogan. You, our dedicated volunteers and partners, made it into a reality,” said Sec. Soliman in her message.

The “Bayani Ka!”  awards is one of the KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP campaigns that aims to acknowledge the hardwork of community volunteers and promote community driven development in building local, everyday heroes who are willing to put their own communities (“bayan”) before their own selves (“I”).

The winners of the search will serve as program advocates that would promote the gains of KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP to their respective circles during activities and events.

KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP is a DSWD program that expanded the operations of the community driven-development approach proven effective by the previous project Kalahi-CIDSS. The program aims to empower and involve communities in the planning, decision-making, and implementation of need-responsive projects identified by the community themselves.
