Dolores LGU recognizes best child reading and playing centers

DOLORES, Abra, Nov. 27(PIA) –- The Local Government Unit here recognized barangays of the municipality with the best reading corners and play area in celebration of  the National Children’s Month  this November.

This year’s celebration with the theme “Sama-Samang Itaguyod ang Karapatan ng Bawat Bata sa Panahon ng Pandemya” mainly focuses on upholding the rights of Filipino children amidst the Corona Virus Disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.

Mayor Conde Turqueza said this is also a good way of raising public awareness on matters concerning the rights of children especially those who are experiencing difficulties in their studies particularly the challenges brought by distance learning modalities.

In line with this, the LGU initiated search for the Best Reading Corners and Play Area among barangays with existing learning centers. The top three barangays with best reading corners are Barangay Talogtog, Poblacion and Pacac while the barangays with best play area are Talogtog, Poblacion and Calumbaya. They will receive cash incentives in recognition for their efforts for establishing comfortable study and play places for the children.

The celebration is also highlighted by competitions such as composition writing, poster making, and tiktok challenges for elementary and high school students in the municipality.

The Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office has also distributed food packs and packed meals for the barangays which will be served to children during their feeding program activities. (JDP/CAGT–PIA CAR, Abra)
