outside of Nagcanasan

outside of Nagcanasan which could help them ferry goods easier and bring them home faster and more comfortably. The First Step The initial step towards the realization of a concrete pavement in Nagcanasan came in 2012 when the Kapit-bisig Laban sa Kahirapan Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS) of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) was introduced. The program, which is funded by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) and the Millennium Challenge Account - Philippines (MCA - P) through grants, aims to help impoverished municipalities attain solutions to their problems for the welfare of their people. It was the answer to Nagcanasan’s dream to have a concrete access road for the improvement of the lives of its residents. Without much fuss, the Municipal Local Government Unit accepted the assistance, and implementation started after a mass participation of the 19 barangays of Pilar through successful information dissemination from the Kalahi-CIDSS staff. During the first barangay consultation, the residents were very much impressed with the proposed sub-projects. With determination and eagerness to finally have a concrete road, the community in unison concluded to the farm-to-market road sub-project. On their part, the residents complied to the all requirements and other matters taken during the barangay consultations in their topmost capability. The dream of a concrete road connection in Nagcanasan inched even closer to realization when the project was billed the top priority based on the approved criteria through a voting during the MIBF-PRA. Finally, the 2, 580 linear meters of the Nagcanasan to Gapang Farm-to-Market Road was given a funding of P7, 351, 823.69. Paving Reality The project was officially started on December 8 last year through the concerted efforts of the Kalahi-CIDSS staff in coordination with the MLGU, barangay officials, and the entire community of Nagcanasan. 21

Again in a show of unity and determination, the community pitched in for the fare of the materials to the construction site. After almost a year, the road is now at virtually complete. As of November 21, the long stretch of concrete pavement that connects Nagcanasan to the outside world only needs inspection before this can finally be turned over to the community. The success and benefit of the road pavement is felt deeply and enjoyed not only by the community of Nagcanasan but by other barangays as well. People can now comfortably travel from one barangay to another at ease or ferry their produce to town and go home faster, regardless of what season of the year it is. The trouble of carrying ill residents by foot is now history and emergency situations are now easily answered by responding agencies or authorities. The agony of inaccessibility will no longer be passed on to the upcoming generations because Nagcanasan’s dreams have now been paved to reality. The first step was taken and the journey of a thousand miles has reached its end.// 22
