CAPACITATING NEW WORKERS. RD Priscilla N. Razon emphasizes to new Kalahi-CIDSS workers their critical role as members of the Kalahi-CIDSS Area Coordinating Team during the recent Orientation-Training held at Island Garden City of Samal. “Mobilizing people to participate is already an enormous responsibility. However, your work doesn’t stop there. The people must learn to believe that they can do it. How? By keeping them involved and informed throughout the whole project cycle and even beyond it. Only then are they able to realize and learn to appreciate their empowerment journey and its relevance in their own development. And you can only attain this when you are focused and really work as a team.” (DSWD)
