SEWING FOR PEACE. Women volunteers in Barangay New Panay, Maragusan, Compostela Valley undergo a Trainer’s Training on Dressmaking specializing on Embroidery and Interior Design through Kalahi-CIDSS PAMANA. The community was granted Php 399,875.00 worth of 11 sewing machines and sewing materials for the workshop. Community residents are united because the sub-project enhances the capacities of women and provides them the opportunity to augment their meager family income.

The PAyapa at MAsaganang PaMAyanan (PAMANA), one of the modalities of Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan – Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS), aims at empowering communities and strengthening people’s capacities in order to address issues of vulnerability and peace through activities that promote social cohesion. (DSWD)
