CITY OF MALOLOS - In a bid to support the solo parents in Bulacan, the Provincial Government of Bulacan (PGB) will hold the annual general assembly dubbed as “Sa Iyong Pag-iisa, May Kaagapay Ka” on February 19, 2014, 1:00 pm at Hiyas Pavilion, Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center in this city.

Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado said the program aims to increase the awareness of the public about the programs of the PGB for solo parents.

“Ninanais din namin na iharap sa publiko ang Solo Parent Accomplishment Report para sa taong 2013 at upang ipaalam na rin ang mga impormasyon tungkol sa mga solo parent,” said Rowena Joson-Tiongson, head of the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office.

Tiongson added that under the program, one of the children of solo parents can apply for a scholarship when they go to college.

“Ang mga nakikinabang sa programa ay binibigyan din natin ng prayoridad sa mga programa tulad ng Self-Employment Assistance (SEA) para makatulong sa kanilang kabuhayan at tuwing Araw ng mga Puso, binibigyan din sila ng mga supot ng grocery,” Tiongson said.

Also part of the event is the oath taking of newly elected officials of Solo Parents Provincial Federation.

It will be attended by 1,220 delegates comprising of 569 barangay solo parent presidents, 569 barangay solo parent secretaries, and 82 other guests.

Further, the qualifications, duties, benefits and privileges of being a Lingkod Lingap sa Nayon (LLN) and a Mother Leader (ML) will be also be discussed in the said occasion.

LLNs and MLs act as bridges of the PGB to the barangays to promote programs on nutrition, population, social welfare and development. ###
