Metamorphosis_Kalahi-CIDSS Compendium 2015

53 In the early morning

53 In the early morning of August 20, people began showing up at the Municipal Hall of Besao, Mountain Province. By early morning, around 400 people coming from 13 barangays of Besao started to gather in front of the Municipal Hall. Their purpose: to create the longest human chain of the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan- Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS), with funding support from the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC). Their goal, however, goes beyond merely setting a record as they aim to help construct a school building for high school students in one of the town’s barangays. Using the vehicles lent by several barangays – 4x4s, trucks, and jeepneys – the volunteers, most of whom are from the other 13 barangays of Besao, proceeded to Barangay Tamboan, where the school building will be constructed, heedless of the fact that Typhoon Ineng was threatening to batter Northern Luzon with strong winds and rain. Undaunted Bayanihan spirit leads to the longest human chain in KalahiCIDSS history By Strelle Quejado Besao is considered one of the best-performing communities in Kalahi-CIDSS, a program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). Tamboan, one of its barangays, is bounded by Quirino, Ilocos Sur and some villages in Tubo, Abra. With the implementation of the K-12 program of the Department of Education (DepEd), schools with limited classrooms needed to expand to support the larger number of students. Tamboan National High School is one of these, particularly since some students coming from Quirino and Tubo also go there because of the barangay’s proximity to these towns. One of the buildings used in the campus was old and decrepit, putting the lives of the students at risk. “Iyong Grade 7 at Grade 8 na mga estudyante namin, doon sila sa lumang building. Dilapidated na at unsafe na, lalo na ‘yung foundations ng building. Makakatulong talaga ito sa mga bata (Our Grades 7 and 8 students use the old building. It is already dilapidated and unsafe,

Chain of development. Age, gender, and profession saw no bounds when the bayanihan spirit pulled the Besao residents to work together, hauling sand for the construction of a school building in Barangay Tamboan. Together, they formed the longest human chain in Kalahi-CIDSS and Besao history* especially its foundations. The new building will really help the children),” said Teacher Gwen, who teaches at the school. At present, Tamboan High School has more than 30 grade 7 students in the old building. In the recent cycle of Kalahi-CIDSS in Besao, the community of Tamboan proposed the construction of a one-unit two-classroom school building, amounting to P1,222,826, for their high school. Of this amount, P780,426 will be funded by Kalahi-CIDSS and MCC, P337,000 by the local and barangay local government units, and P105,400 through the inkind counterpart of the community, majority of which will be for 60 cubic meters of sand that will be used during construction. Unfortunately, the proposal of Tamboan was not prioritized during the Municipal Inter- Barangay Forum for Participatory Resource Allocation (MIBF-PRA), the activity in Kalahi- 54
