BATANGAS CITY - In Batangas City Mayor Mayor Beverley Dimacuha’s State of the City Children’s Address (SOCA) for the year 2022, she emphasized the importance of education and the well-being of the youth. She highlighted various initiatives and programs aimed at providing quality education and ensuring a safe and nurturing environment for children to thrive in.

Mayor Dimacuha, the current chairperson of the City Council for the Protection of Children (CCPC), informed about the programs that have been implemented and the activities that have been carried out by the various offices of the city government, as well as the members of the CCPC that aim to give children in the city a stable, secure, and inclusive environment.

This includes the Children’s Congress held in December 2022, which was attended by students aged 12 to 15 from different schools in the city. Mikaela Joy Magnaye of Batangas City Integrated School and Nicolo Simon Balina of Stonyhurst Southville International School, who have been members of the CCPC and partners with the local government to intensify the child-friendly LGU of Batangas City, were selected as child representatives in the said Congress.

Programs for the physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being of children also became a priority last year. Proof of this is the allocation of funds for the supplemental feeding program, fresh milk, learning materials, supplies, and others.

The mayor also mentioned the ordinances passed by the Sangguniang Panlungsod for the welfare of children, such as curfew hours, strengthening the local health nutrition program for mothers and newborn children in the first 1000 days of life, and others.

She added that he wants children to continue to be given the four areas of rights, including the right to live, develop, participate, and be protected. Different sectors of society are her partners in this aspiration, including the Department of Social Welfare and Development, non-government organizations, and the education sector.

Together, they work towards creating a safe and nurturing environment for children to thrive in. The mayor emphasized the importance of collaboration and urged everyone to actively contribute to the well-being of the city's young population.

He encouraged everyone to further intensify their advocacy to ensure a bright future for children and to provide them with equal opportunities for growth and development. The mayor also highlighted the need for continuous support and investment in programs that prioritize education, healthcare, and social services for children. By doing so, the city can guarantee a prosperous and inclusive society for future generations.

SOCA attendees included CCPC Vice Chairperson Coun. Ched Atienza, who delivered the opening remarks, was joined by members of the CCPC, Vice Mayor Alyssa Cruz, city councilors, department heads, parents, teachers, and students.
