E very year, the municipality of Asipulo, Ifugao celebrates their town fiesta called Kulpi’d Asipulo by showcasing their culture and tradition. But this year, there’s a twist in this town’s usual celebration as they incorporated their triumph in community-driven development. With the theme “Celebrating culture and community development,” Benilda E. Redaja, National Project Manager of Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS) graced the event as the keynote speaker. Kalahi-CIDSS is a poverty reduction program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development that uses the community-driven development (CDD) approach in implementing projects. THE “LITTLE PEOPLE” AND CDD As part of the celebration, Redaja visited Barangay Nungawa where she went for a road trip and a ceremonial marker installation to the completed Amduntog-Duit core road improvement which was built through the volunteerism of the villagers. She also listened to the stories of struggles and successes of the villagers on community-driven development. Describing Nungawa, she said that more than the physical structure they built, they also “stand tall for their indomitable spirit when they fought hard to gain both voice and vote” to be prioritized for the Kalahi-CIDSS projects. Salcedo Pugong, a sixty-year old veteran described his people as “little people” to mean a humble village with small population. The barangay has 607 residents with 112 households. Lakay Salcedo defined his experience with a community-driven development program as life changing. He expressed that they nearly quit on Kalahi-CIDSS because of its tedious procedures. However, while thinking of changing the course of their lives, they persevered and sacrificed to complete 6 cycles with Kalahi-CIDSS. Further, Celia Dulnuan, one of the women KALAHISerye 2016|| 2
