by Carlito C. Dar and H. Dela Cruz

Twenty-seven municipalities from the Cordillera are recipients of the Seal of Child-Friendly Local Governance for their programs, services, policies, and other initiatives that promote the protection and welfare of children.

Department of Social Welfare and Development Regional Director Janet Armas spearheaded the awarding of the certificate of recognition to the awardees during the DSWD regional sharing of lessons and regional Talakayan recently.

The awardees for Abra are Tubo, Sallapadan, Penarrubia, Manabo, Tineg, Ding-las, Dolores, Villaviciosa, Luba, Bucloc, San Juan,  Licuan-Baay, Malibcong, and Lagayan.

For Benguet, recipients are Kabayan, Atok, Tublay and Kibungan.  Awardees from Mountain Province are Sagada, Barlig, Tadian, and Bauko.

Kalinga awardees are Pasil and Ting-layan; Hungduan and Mayoyao for Ifugao, and Pudtol for Apayao.

Baguio City and Sablan, Benguet, which got the highest ratings, shall be the region’s representative in the national assessment for the Presidential Awards on Child-Friendly Local Governance.

The recognition system is spearheaded by the Council for the Welfare of Children, in partnership with national government agencies headed by the DSWD and the Department of the Interior and Local Government, to encourage LGUs to prioritize children in their planning, budgeting, legislation, and delivery of programs and services to ensure that the rights and welfare of children are protected.

To be a seal awardee, LGUs are audited based on 12 criteria that include percentage reduction on children under five mortality and malnutrition rate, increase in the number of three to four-year olds attending center-based day care services, completion rate among elementary schooling, absence or reduction in child labor cases, and safety measures for children in school and community.
