This initiative is made possible through the KALAHI-CIDSS Cash-For-Work Program, which aims to provide income support and work experience to individuals in need. 

This partnership benefits the students and recent graduates by giving them valuable work experience and supports the community by addressing local infrastructure needs through the program’s projects.

The KALAHI-CIDSS Kapangyarihan at Kaunlaran sa Barangay (KKB) Cash-For-Work Program (CFWP) is a cash support in exchange for the agreed community work/ service task rendered.

It provides a short-term intervention through temporary employment or a targeted cash transfer for college graduates/ students and families affected by disasters and those belonging to economically poor and vulnerable communities and sectors such as but not limited to poor and transient poor, children, women, persons with disabilities (PWDs), indigenous peoples, and older persons.
