Libjo Community Driven Development

For the whole of Dinagat Island, Libjo has been chosen to implement KALAHI-CIDSS project. KALAHI-CIDSS is a community-driven development project funded by the World Bank. It aims to empower communities through participation in every barangay. The project has a budget of 4.8 million and supposed to be subdivided in 16 barangays. At this point Libjo KALAHI-CIDSS is still undergoing a series of conference /seminar to determine a project that every barangay need most. It is the policy of this program to let the barangay folks determine what project is best for them to alleviate poverty. This is not a dole out program. For example the barangay folks needs a Day Care Center, the barangay has to donate a lot area for the building where it will be constructed or shoulder 10% of the total appropriation cost.

By the way KALAHI is Kapitbisig Laban sa Kahirapan (Linking Arms against Poverty)
and CIDSS is Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services
