Capiz town inaugurates P.5-M day care center
Roxas City (6 December) -- A day care center worth P500,000.00 at Barangay San Vicente in Jamindan town was inaugurated and turned over by the municipal government of Jamindan to improve pre-school education program in the locality.
The project was funded by the local government unit using the KALAHI process, said Jamindan Public Information Officer (PIO) Norma Chavez.
KALAHI is the acronym for Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan. It is a flagship poverty alleviation project of the government that supports a community-driven development approach to reduce poverty.
During the program, Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Assistant Regional Director Joel Galicia said that he will work out for the convergence of KALAHI, Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) and Self-Employment Assistance Kaunlaran (SEAK) in Jamindan town.
Galicia has also commended Jamindan mayor Ethel Jinon for being a community development oriented executive.
The lady mayor has been awarded as Best Local Chief Executive last year for the institutionalization of KALAHI process.
For her part, Jinon emphasized that pre-education is important and it is one of the priority programs of the municipal government to attain the "Shining Jamindan" vision.
She has also urged the residents to take care of the facility so that it will last long enough to cater to the needs of the children in moulding their young minds. (Norma Chavez/PIA/A. Lumaque) [top]
