The MASA MASID project aims to heighten community involvement by encouraging Filipinos to participate in anti-illegal drugs, anti-criminality, and anticorruption efforts through Advocacy and Education Campaigns highlighting how these menaces can be destructive to a family and community as a whole and by encouraging the reporting of their concerns through the Information Gathering, Reporting, and Monitoring strategy of the project.; Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?: The MASA MASID upholds and promotes the OGP values. The project promotes transparency among the Local Government Units and encourages the participation of the people to also check whether the resources of the LGU goes to its intended use and make sure that resources are used properly.
