CBCS through Darussalam Project conducted a two day Governance: Leadership Skills and Development Training on September 2-3, 2014 held at KFI Training Center, Cotabato City actively participated by the community leaders of Barangay Romongaob and Barangay Pandan, South Upi, Maguindanao. Fifteen (15) participants from Barangay Romongaob and Thirteen (13) from Barangay Pandan attended the training composed of BLGU Leaders, IP Leaders, Religious Leaders, Youth Leaders, Women Leaders, Teachers and Day care workers.

The primary aim of this activity is to develop the skills of the leaders and to improve their ability to lead the community especially in the different facets of barangay governance. The word “leadership” is not new to the context of barangay’s lexicon but through this training the community leaders were enabled to understand the true meaning of a leader, how to lead and why lead.

Robert M. Apadan, Project Officer of Darussalam Project facilitated the activity and explained the meaning and value of good governance the principles underlying good governance, the process and some of the tools for applying principles of good governance to the work of Community Based Organizations (CBOs) and local authorities persuade the participants to reflect on the strengths and shortcomings of good governance practices in their own communities and asked participants to identify the institutional bodies in their communities and create sustainable linkages.

This participatory activity is an avenue for the participants to air their concerns regarding their barangay. Each one committed to apply all the skills and new learning they have obtained from this training and impart this to their respective communities thanking CBCS for this initiative to improve their own abilities in governance so as to achieve a peaceful community.
