Children in MisOr urged to go back to school

MISAMIS ORIENTAL,  – The Department of Social Welfare and Development partnered with the Department of Education in the launching of the “Bata Balik, Eskwela” initiative of the Pantawid Pamilyang Program in the province of Misamis Oriental encouraging the not attending school (NAS) children to enroll back to school.

According to Provincial Link Cielo C. Alcoran, this activity is a strategy employed by the Pantawid in providing a holistic and integrated response and service delivery intervention for managing cases of NAS children including immediate family and community environments.

Alcoran said based on their data, the Division of Misamis Oriental has a total of 9,361 NAS/school leavers who are in need of the appropriate intervention and eventually enroll and attend school for school year 2019-2020.

List of schools determined by the Provincial Operations Office (POO) for Misamis Oriental consisted of 28 public schools in Alubijid, Balingasag, Claveria, Initao, Jasaan, Kinoguitan, Laguindingan, Lugait, Magsaysay, Manticao, Medina, Opol, Salay, Talisayan and Villanueva towns.

She also said a memorandum of agreement for the “Ali na! Skwela ta” project as the regional adaptation of the Bata Balik Eskwela has been signed last April 22. The general guidelines of the campaign include the conduct of Family Development Session/Youth Development Session during Brigada Eskwela. It is also open to non Pantawid beneficiaries who are in the same condition as determined by the school.

Beneficiaries with NAS children are to report to the information booth facilitated by DSWD during the Brigada Eskwela.

Pantawid, meanwhile, is a human development program that invests in the health and education of poor households that contributes to the sustainable development goals specific on achieving universal primary education. (eor/PIA)
