C-Cimpel, Alcoy unite for good governance



Volunteers of the Cebu Archdiocese recently launched a program of good governance in Alcoy town, southern Cebu.

Members of the Cebu-Citizens’ Involvement and Maturation in People’s Empowerment and Liberation (C-Cimpel) and Alcoy are partners in this first church-local government unit joint project that will run for one year.

C-Cimpel is the political education arm of the Cebu Archdiocese.

A motor caravan and general assembly last Oct. 29 kicked off the project called “Conscientization of Alcoy constituents towards integral governance in the barangay.”

The project aims to empower Alcoy residents by orienting them on the role of the state and civil society in good governance.

Through seminars and trainings, they will be made aware of the destructive effects of patronage politics and graft and corruption in the people’s quality of life.

Indicators of good governance and the need for Christian leadership will also be presented.

Participants from all sitios of Alcoy’s eight barangays will be challenged to play an active role in seeking socio-political reforms.

The project is supported by Alcoy Mayor Nicomedes delos Santos and Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma.
