LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – This town recognized the efforts of stakeholders in doing their share to ensure a child-friendly environment.

The municipal government recognized barangays that ensure child-friendly governance and protection and welfare of children during the culminating activity of Children’s Month celebration last Oct.31.

Mayor Edna Tabanda said winners were awarded cash prizes with accompanying project proposals, which help boost children’s welfare and protection to be carried out in the barangay. Awards were categorized as major, minor, special, and consolation.

Barangay Betag heaped the most child-friendly barangay in the major awards category with P50,000.  Barangay Beckel got second place with P40,000, Puguis got third place with 30,000. Lubas placed fourth with P15,000 and Tawang placed fifth with P10,000.

Each winner received P8,000 for the minor awards. Betag garnered the best in innovative programs and Lubas was best in day care services. Puguis got the best in health and nutrition and services and best in institutional bodies. 

Winners in the special awards also received P8,000 each. Barangay Alno won the community support award; Beckel, child youth participation award; and Wangal, planning and policy formulation award.

Barangays Pico, Alapang, Bahong, Poblacion, Cruz, and Shilan also received consolation prizes of P4,000 each.

The town has been consistently awarded at the regional level as Child Friendly local government unit from 2009 to 2012 and qualified as a national finalist in 2009, 2010, and 2012.

In the same occasion, town officials turned over reference books sponsored by the La Trinidad Municipal Employees Cooperative to the 16 day care workers.

Tabanda also presented the Local Children State Report underscoring legal mandates on child welfare, profile of children, and rights-based services of the town.

Department of Social Welfare and Development Regional Director Janet Armas stressed the importance of relationships within the family and between parent and child.

A guide in managing child abuse cases called Child Abuse Prevention and Intervention Network Protocol Manual was also launched. This was signed by representatives of the LGU, Child and Family Services Philippines, Inc., Philippine Mental Health Association, departments of the Interior and Local Government, Education, Family Court, provincial government, Commission on Human Rights, and La Trinidad Municipal Police Station.
