CSF Continues To Empower Solo Parents, Children Through Education [ Thursday, 11th of April 2019 | 1 week ago ]
An educational assistance is now at the hands of Fernandino solo parents and their children, a fruit of the effort in the education aspect of the city government led by Mayor Edwin “EdSa” Santiago.
Tagged as “Educational Assistance to Solo Parents and their Children,” this newly-established project was a brainchild of the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO). It was staged on March 21, 2019 at Heroes Hall.
Solo parents in this capital city, whose children are currently in Grades 1 to 8 in schools, were granted with a P2,000 assistance which will be used for the children’s education expenses.
“Malaki ang paghanga ko sa mga solo parent ng siyudad San Fernando. Sila ay bahagi ng lipunan na dapat kilalanin dahil sa angking tibay ng kalooban. Kaya bilang rekognisyon, susuportahan natin ang pag-aaral ng kanilang mga anak,” remarked Santiago during his speech.
For the project’s premiere, some 500 solo parents were able to avail, and the CSWDO said it hopes for the project to be staged annually so more beneficiaries will be accommodated.
“Isasama namin sa amendment na maging ganap na sana siyang program ng city at ma-stage siya yearly para maipagpatuloy yung assistance sa mga solo parents,” said Catherine Obra, Solo Parent Focal Person.
With education being among Santiago’s top priorities, thousands of young Fernandinos have been granted educational assistance, from scholarship and subsidy programs to free college education.
