With Mayor Santiago’s administration, the city has always been very instrumental in the provision of welfare and development programs for the children particularly on education and health. Programs are laid down in adherence to the four basic rights of the children which are survival, protection, development and participation.
“This made San Fernando an environment for children to grow and develop their full potential in every stage of development, from conception in the womb to adolescence period” said Mayor Santiago in interview.
He added that the city believes that the prime indicator of a successful child – friendly local governance is its institutional transformation that is rooted to a significant change in values and practices of the community, in which the family, the church and the school institutions plays a vital role.
“Investing fully in children today will ensure the well – being and productivity of future generations for decades to come” said Mayor Santiago noting that the “programs are geared towards an enabling environment for children to grow and develop their full potential in every stage of development, from conception in the womb to adolescence period.”
