Olongapo City recently bagged the Most Child Friendly City award for Region III (Central Luzon). Olongapo City Mayor James ‘Bong’ Gordon Jr. and City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) head Gene Eclarino proudly presented the award to city government employees during the flag raising ceremony held at the Rizal Triangle Multi-Purpose Center.

The award was given recently in San Fernando, Pampanga.

This qualifies Olongapo as a nominee for the Presidential Award for Most Child Friendly City in the entire country. A validating team will visit the city on December 1 and 2, 2008 to evaluate the city’s performance and programs protecting children’s welfare and rights.

“Gusto kong pasalamatan ang members ng Local Council for the Welfare of Children na pinamumunuan ng ating Mayor at sa Barangay Council for the Protection of Children dahil we achieved this award because of our unity and cooperation with other Local Government Units and other organizations,” said Eclarino.

“Napakahalaga ng award na ito para sa Olongapo. This proves na our programs for the welfare of children are effective and we are implementing it well,” explained Mayor Gordon.

It can be recalled that a regional evaluating team recently visited the city to evaluate the city’s performance and visit several barangays of the city to check their child friendly programs.
