Kawit gets 2nd ‘Child Friendly’ award
The municipality of Kawit, represented by administrator, Dr. Norberto Victa Rayupa, received the ‘2017 Seal of Child Friendly Local Governance’ (SCFLG) award, during the regional awarding ceremony at the Quezon Convention here on Monday.
The award, conferred by the Council for the Welfare of Children (CWC) chaired by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) as partner, is based on the results of the mandatory Child-Friendly Local Governance Audit (CFLGA), which is conducted annually and covers all cities and municipalities throughout the country.
Rayupa was elated by the town’s second SCFLG. “The the award is the needed ‘pat on the back’ to show that our hard work has paid off,” he said.
Kawit, is among Cavite’s 7 cities and 16 towns which passed, 100%, the mandatory Child-Friendly Local Government Audit (CFLGA) as announced by the DILG last January.
Rayupa, former dean of Emilio Aguinaldo College, Dasmarinas and Manila campuses, Christian College of Tanauan and PIMSAT Colleges Bacoor, said the award would “serve as inspiration to be better, give more, in the service of the Kawitenyo children, people.”
The program audit is designed to enhance the delivery of social services for children as the government aimed for Child-Friendly Philippines and consists of 12-point indicators to assess the overall performance of LGUs.
Top indicators include reduction in deaths among under five year-old children; reduction in children under six years old with below normal weights; percentage increase in day care/early learning center attendance (public and private); and completion rate for elementary schooling (public and private).
