DSWD Bicol hosts songwriting contest on community-driven development

LEGAZPI CITY–The DSWD Field Office V invites all talented Bicolano musicians and bands to write songs about community-driven development (CDD) and join the agency's songwriting contest.


Song entries, according to Regional Director Arnel Garcia, must entice the public to support and appreciate the the CDD strategy of KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP and Payapa at Masaganang Pamayanan (PAMANA) programs that DSWD has been implementing in Bicol since 2003.

“We would like to engage the public to appreciate CDD by coming up with a song which simplifies the message of success in engaging ordinary citizens to participate in the planning, implementation and management of resources for local development,” Garcia declared.

The contest is open to all Bicolano amateur and professional songwriters with a band that will interpret the composition.

KALAHI CIDSS which stands for Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services, puts the power back in the hands of the people by giving them the opportunity to make informed decisions on locally identified options for development and manage resources to implement sub-projects that address needs identified by communities themselves. Consequently, the National Community-Driven Development Program (NCDDP) scales-up CDD which was used and has been proven effective by KALAHI CIDSS in its past 11 years of implementation in Bicol and in the Philippines as a whole. The program is now called KALAHI CIDSS NCDDP.

On the other hand, PAMANA project under its second pillar is implemented by DSWD to facilitate the delivery of basic services at the community level through CDD, and community livelihood interventions.

Both KALAHI CIDSS NCDDP and PAMANA aim to reduce poverty, empower communities and improve local governance.

In these programs, community residents consensually decide on what type of poverty-reduction projects they prioritize for funding based from the collective analysis of their needs. Community proposals can vary from public goods/access projects, enterprise or livelihood projects or human development projects.

KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP is one of the core social protection programs of DSWD along with Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (Pantawid) and Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP). –DSWD-5
