THE Tiangco brothers – Navotas Mayor John Rey Tiangco and Rep. Toby Tiangco – were all praises for the new graduates of the city’s Alternative Learning System including the 74-year-old Urbana Señal Navarrete.
“Saludo tayo kay Nanay Urbana at sa mga kasama niyang ALS graduates dahil hindi naging hadlang ang edad, katayuan sa buhay, o iba pang hamon at pagsubok para sila ay magsikap na makapagtapos sa pag-aaral at ikinararangal namin ang inyong pagpupursigi,” Rep. Toby said.

Meanwhile, Mayor JRT threw his support on ‘Brigada Pagbasa’ project designed to encourage students to engage more time in reading.

“Mahalaga po na habang bata, sanayin na po natin ang ating mga anak na magbasa. Sa pagbabasa, mas nahahasa at lumalawak ang kanilang imahinasyon at pagiging malikhain, ang kanilang critical thinking at problem-solving skills, pati na ang kanilang personalidad at karakter.”

Solo parents get financial aid

The city government has made true with its promise to continue granting financial assistance to poor residents and qualified beneficiaries of its various economic programs despite limited city funds including solo parents.

The mayor said, the latest to receive their cash assistance were some qualified 230 solo parents who each got P2,000 through ‘Saya All, Angat All Tulong Pinansyal Para sa mga Rehistradong Solo Parents,’ one of the city’s pandemic recovery programs under the Gender and Development Fund.

“We recognize the hardships Navoteño solo parents face and we hope to offer them a means to provide for their families even through these challenging times,” JRT stressed as he assured to continuously grant financial aid to them despite the city’s meager income.

School graduates get theirs too

It also gave financial aid to this year’s graduates in public elementary and senior high schools.
The distribution of cash assistance to the graduate students began during the time of ex-mayor and now lawmaker, Rep. Toby.

Of the number, the local government said 3,810 were Grade 6 and 2,067 were Grade 12 completers who each received P500 and P1,000, respectively.

“We want to honor and show our appreciation to our graduates for pursuing their education, especially despite the challenges of the pandemic,” the mayor claimed.
