L ove for the community and passion to serve the people are among the many reasons why they become Community Volunteers of DSWD Kalahi-CIDDS program. In my field works as a community development officer assigned in the province of Abra, often I would meet community volunteers from different walks of life. As part of my work, I enjoy talking to our community volunteers whenever I get a chance. Some of their words would just stay in my memory and that’s when I know it’s time to put those thoughts into writing. Each municipality in Abra has its own uniqueness even if they belong to the same province. It goes the same with the community volunteers I’ve met. Most of the time, their version of change depends on their development status and their political situations. One of my favorite municipality is Langiden, Abra. I recall that my visits there is often coupled with challenges of crossing the Abra river especially during rainy seasons. Whenever I arrive in Langiden, I’d always think that I’m entering a tiny place where time has stopped. While some municipalities are “developing” or changing fast, this community has maintained its rustic atmosphere. Langiden, Abra is now implementing 4th cycle of DSWD Kalahi-CIDSS under the National Community-Driven Development Program. Their first to third cycle implementation is funded through a grant by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) of the United States of America (USA). There, I met Manang Mary Bueno, 56 years old, Barangay Sub-Project Management Committee (BSPMC) Chairperson of Barangay Quiliat during our Community Driven-Development and Gender and Development Training. As the BSPMC Chairperson, she is in-charge of managing the committee in the overall implementation of the sub-project. KALAHISerye 2016|| 54
