"SEA-K is a livelihood assistance program which aims to enhance socio-economic, entrepreneurial skills of poor families, including solo parents. Aside from that, we also involve them in various skills training," Reyes added.
The city ensures to provide benefits and privileges to solo parents and their children in compliance with Republic Act 8972 or the Solo Parents’ Welfare Act of 2000.
For his part, Mayor Edwin ‘EdSa’ Santiago, applauds every solo parent for their hard work and sacrifices in raising each of their families and sustaining the education of their children.
