The Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte through the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office organized the province-wide Child Development Workers Forum last December 18, 2019, at the Grandstand of Mindanao Civic Center Sports Complex, Sagadan, Tubod.

Provincial Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza-Dimaporo despite her hectic schedule made time to personally thank the volunteer workers for their passion and dedication in helping parents nurturing the children ages 3 to 4 years old.

The Provincial Chief Executive recognized how important the role of these daycare workers whose patience and devotion are beyond ordinary.

Governor Angging understands that children at these ages, 3 to 4, are energetic and sometimes hyperactive which needs special attention and guidance.

“As a mother, I have experienced the difficulty in watching over children at these ages, you really have to exert more effort and patience. But it is satisfying and heart-warming experience because we love our children,” said the Governor.

The Child Development Workers were also encouraged by Governor Angging to include in their teaching and inculcate in their young minds how important Mother Nature is in our lives, and taking care of it is the essential role of each and every one of us. And one way to show that we care for the environment is to teach these children the proper way of managing solid waste, especially plastic materials.

The Governor added that “This is the perfect age to teach these children good values and right conduct that would guide them as they grow and gradually shape their character to become good and responsible citizens of this country as well as to be efficient and effective constituents of this beloved province of ours.”

Mr. Jephunne Shem H. Resabal, the Provincial Child Development Workers Federated President, on behalf of the whole CDWs in the province expressed his gratitude to the Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte through the active leadership and support of Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza-Dimaporo, and the two Congressional District Offices of 1st District Representative, Congressman Mohamad Khalid Quibranza Dimaporo, and to 2nd District Representative, Congressman Abdullah ‘Bobby’ Dimakuta Dimaporo, and to the Honorable Members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan headed by Vice Governor Maria Cristina ‘Cristy’ N. Atay.

Governor Angging was also happy to see CDWs from the interior municipalities have come to join the forum and participated in the activity.
