Comval Guv delivers Local State of the Children’s Report

Compostela Valley Province—  ”What we do now will surely make or break our children. There is no other choice but to ensure that the environment they live in is an environment that fosters hope, nurtures their talent and encourages growth,” this was part of the message of Governor Jayvee Tyron L. Uy during the celebration of the 26th National Children’s Month (NCM) 2018 at the Provincial Capitol Lobby, Cabidianan, Nabunturan Comval on November 5, 2018.

This year’s NCM theme is “Isulong: Tamang Pag-aaruga, Para sa Lahat ng Bata.”

Highlights of the Celebration are the Local State of the Children’s Report of Governor Uy and the kick-off ceremony.

Governor Uy reported the child welfare and development agenda that highlights the five core areas: civil rights and freedoms, family environment for care and alternative care, basic health and welfare, basic education, leisure and cultural activities and special protections.

“Under civil rights, we conducted the Provincial Children’s Congress. Annually, we gather our child development workers to tackle the most pressing issues and problems concerning our children. This is also chance for our child development workers to express their concerns and grievances, a chance we hear the sentiments of our frontlines in the field-our child development workers,” said Gov. Uy.

Meanwhile, during the program Provincial Director Noel C. Duarte of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) gives the rationale of the NCM 2018.

He explains that this celebration is for the victims of violence, every country’s culture, social level, abuse, neglect, exploitation, and also for the streets, home, school and institution.

“The celebration is by virtue of Republic Act 10661, an act declaring November every year as NCM. The NCM celebrates successes of children, to campaign to end violence against children and promote their physical, emotional, moral, spiritual and intellectual well-being,” said Duarte.

Attending the program were the provincial officials, employees of the provincial government, students and personnel from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

“As part of the community that believes in the capacity of the young to make positive change, it is our sworn duty and solemn obligation that they access opportunities that they deserve. As governor that belongs to the generation of the young, I vow that I will dedicate every single day in making sure that our children live in an environment that protects their rights and puts their welfare at the center of our priorities,” ended Governor Uy. (Rey Antibo, ID Comval)
