CLASSROOM FINALLY. Prior to the implementation of Kalahi-CIDSS, students in Barangay Lagumit in Malita town, Davao Occidental held their classes in a makeshift classroom beneath a mango tree since their room could not accommodate a large number of students. With the construction of a two-classroom High School building worth P 1,488,158.00 through Kalahi-CIDSS, 90 students can now comfortably sit and learn inside their brand new rooms.
Kalahi-CIDSS or Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS) is a community-driven development (CDD) initiative of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
It seeks to empower citizens by teaching them so they can develop, implement, and maintain projects that would address their most pressing needs.(DSWD)
