Read on and discover how they became key to the success of a community-led project in their barangay. CONCEIVED DURING BARANGAY ASSEMBLIES Following the empowerment cycle of the Kapitbisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services, Barangay Catlubong realized the importance of barangay assemblies. According to DILG’s code, barangay assemblies should be held twice a year. However, in Kalahi- CIDSS, the barangays are asked to meet five times a year to conduct specific activities as part of their empowerment. “The barangay assemblies required by Kalahi- CIDSS help in organizing people to target and address the real problem in the barangay,” Punong Barangay Melchor Guesey said. However, “gathering them in this barangay proved to be a challenge since, culturally, Benguet people usually build their houses near their farms thus away from each other” Guesey added. “This makes it difficult to call for assemblies and satisfy the 80% participation rate, one of the implementation guideline of Kalahi-CIDSS,” he continued.
