PYAP sets revival in Tacurong

After its hiatus in 2017, the Pag-asa Youth Association of the Philippines (PYAP) made a resurgence this 2021 in Tacurong, catering to the disadvantaged and out-of-school youths from the 20 barangays of the city in envisioning them to become capacitated and productive members of the society.

To actualize this goal, LGU-Tacurong, through the City Social Welfare and Development Office, enforced a 3-day Orientation as well as a Leadership and Planning at Isla Jardin Del Mar, Sarangani on November 8-10, 2021.

Forty PYAP officers – 2 from each barangay of Tacurong – were given talks about Leadership and Mindfulness for the Youth complemented by a discussion on Adolescent Reproductive Health administered by Population Program Officer Judith Janiola of General Santos City.

Further, the Leadership Training and Workshop was carried out by Punong Barangay Jose Juaren Javier of New Isabela. Meanwhile, the Action Planning was delivered through the direction of the City Planning and Development Coordinator Amelia Bochorno.

As a means of lifting the PYAP members’ spirits to move forward, 3 PYAP alumni – Punong Barangay Joan Gabio of Tina, Hon. Baltazar Subando of Brgy. Calean, and Vergel Kilayco – recounted their experiences from being underprivileged to becoming successful in their chosen fields as a transformation entailed by the association.

City Mayor Lino O. Montilla and Vice Mayor Lalaine Montilla also conveyed their support by personally gracing the undertaking at Sarangani.

Mayor Lino unveiled that to further assist PYAP, the city government has allotted P1-Million worth of funding exclusive to the organization. Additionally, as PYAP is under the umbrella of Sangguniang Kabataan, another P1 million budget was integrated to the SK’s, in case PYAP needs to tap their assistance.

Also full-force in support of the group’s endeavor were Acting-CSWDO Sitrina Draug, Project Evaluation Officer Josephine Ubaldo, Local Youth Development Officer – Designate Elmer Felongco, Community Affairs Officer Laila Gulmayo-Pelaez, and CESU Marlow Anthony Buenacosa.

LGU completes wheelchair distribution to PWDs

The distribution of wheelchairs to fifty (50) more Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) in the city for this year has been completed as the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Tacurong delivered the last eight (8) wheelchairs and food packs to the last batch of beneficiaries yesterday, December 22, 2020.

Through the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO), the 50 recipients were identified from the list of the most in need PWDs from the twenty barangays of Tacurong.

The last two recipients of wheelchairs yesterday were both stroke patients, Marites Galoso and Bienvinido Cataluña of Brgy. Calean. City Mayor Angelo O. Montilla extended additional support in the form of scholarships to the children of Galoso and Cataluña.

City Mayor Angelo O. Montilla and City First Lady Cora Montilla were there on the very first up to the last day of wheelchair distributions together with the staff of the LGU. They were dedicated to reach each barangay of Tacurong that they personally delivered the wheelchairs to their new owners.

The LGU has made the distribution of the wheelchairs and food packs possible in just four dates – November 27 and December 15,16, and 22 – this 2020 despite the hectic schedule of the city government.

Though this year is closing with the LGU having distributed 50 wheelchairs, the PWDs in the city can surely look forward to more projects and assistance for them next year under the administration of Mayor Montilla. (DEC, LGUTac-Info)

Tacurong gears up for National Children’s Month amidst pandemic

With the serious threat of COVID-19 to the susceptible younger population, the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) of LGU Tacurong welcomes the National Children’s Month in a safer, new normal celebration to reduce the risk of the virus while commemorating the event.

The National Children’s Month seeks to deliver programs that attend to the needs and development of children in the country.

In the city, the CSWDO remains steadfast in the implementation of the Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) program to children aged three years old to four despite the pandemic.

Fifty-three daycare centers from the twenty barangays of Tacurong are in-charge with the distribution of educational materials and the orientation of the parents on the conduct of learning sessions to their children at home.

Also, the Department of Education (DepEd) pledged to print out and distribute Panatang Makabata – a pledge recitation on rights and duties of children – to schools and barangays within the city. 

As the National Children’s Month is a month-long celebration this November, the CSWDO along with its committee ditched the face-to-face activities and prepared various virtual events instead.

On November 20, City Mayor Angelo O. Montilla is set to give his State of the Children’s Report through a livestreaming event on Facebook to publicize the data of children aided by the Local Government of Tacurong and its partner stakeholders. 

The CSWDO does not only focus on the mental development of the children but also ensures their physical growth through a Supplemental Feeding Program in selected areas in Tacurong. 

CSWDO also eyes to implement the Comprehensive Local Juvenile Intervention Program (CLJIP) to address Children in Conflict with the Law in the city.(DEC,LGUTac-Information)
