and Integrated Delivery of Social Services
Called as Cidss, it is a program that caters to the most impoverished communities in the country. It was introduced by the Department of Social Welfare and Development in Region 7 in 1995, particularly in the province of Negros Oriental, and it was replicated in the provinces of Bohol and Cebu two years after its initial implementation.
The program offers livelihood opportunities; skills training; construction of a Day Care Center for pre-schoolers, waterworks and toilet; electrification and other innovative projects. It was initially implemented in fifth and sixth class municipalities.
The municipality of Anda became a Cidss beneficiary with two targeted barangays: Talisay and Sta. Cruz for water project costs P218,582.80.
Now Cidds has radiated to cover the fourth and third class municipalities throughout the region giving focus to the 100 poor families per
If there’s one thing that Cidss teach to the people, it is to believe in themselves and to trust in others because without these, no government or community endeavor is possible.
