SP Highlights: Most Child-Friendly Barangays 2017
“The youth is the hope of the fatherland.”-Dr. Jose P. Rizal- Heavily investing in and sincerely taking care of our children is not only because of our natural love and concern for them, but also out of consideration of our country’s, our community’s future. The time, resources and energy we provide in giving our children adequate and quality education, in shielding them from drugs and other vices, as well as in guiding them as responsible, productive and capable citizens will determine how we can sustain and further boost Naga’s development in the future. Today’s children are tomorrow’s leaders. It is in this regard that the Sangguniang Panlungsod of Naga, thru the sponsorship of Councilor Elmer Baldemoro, passed Ordinance No. 2014-072, institutionalizing the Most-Child Friendly Barangay Awards. Thru this legislative measure, we encourage the barangays to provide responsive measures for the development of the youth, as well as recognize best practices in the ground that can be replicated in the entire city. In the ordinance, clear and defined criteria are set for the selection of the Most-Child Friendly Barangays and those who excelled among the rest shall be awarded with prizes consisting of project funds and trophies. For this year, we are honoured to present and, via Resolution Nos. 2017-571 to 2017-580, cordially congratulate the adjudged Ten Most Child Friendly Barangays of 2017, to wit: Sabang Dinaga Bagumbayan Norte Del Rosario Abella Sta. Cruz Balatas Lerma Carolina Concepcion Grande The first placer (Sabang) shall receive P1,000,000 worth of projects, while the second and third placers shall obtain P700,000 and P500,000 worth of projects, respectively. Meanwhile, Del Rosario (4th) and Abella (5th) shall be awarded P300,000 and P200,000 worth of projects, respectively. The sixth to tenth placers shall be given P100,000 worth of projects each. All of them received their respective trophies corresponding to their rank. As for the other barangays, those who gained a score of at least 75% in the scorecard shall be provided with consolation prizes of P50,000 worth of projects each and a plaque. This is in recognition of their hard work to provide satisfactory services to and maintain a conducive environment for our children. It is important that at the grass-roots, the needs of our children are effectively addressed. The Most-Child Friendly Barangay Awards, as a monitoring and incentive mechanism, have ensured that this is indeed the case for our young Nagueños in the barangays.
