House Deputy Speaker for Mindanao Beng Climaco has reaffirmed support to day care centers in the barangays stressing this is part of her education advocacy program.

Congresswoman Climaco visited various barangays in District I the whole of last week to distribute kiddie chairs in different day care centers.

A total of 265 kiddie chairs were distributed to 13 day care centers in the barangays of Sta. Barbara, San Jose Gusu, Baliwasan Calarian, Sinunuc, Cawit and Capisan.

Gulod del Medio day care center in Barangay Capisan, a facility that can only be reached after a 45-minute trek, was the farthest day care center visited.

“I want the children to be hopeful especially in their first step of early education. In our visits in the centers, we see the basic need of these children. Most of them, would still carry their own chairs from their homes to bring to their schools. Chairs in their schools are big help already to make the place conducive for learning,” the lady legislator said.

Climaco together with her team and barangay officials distributed the chairs, benefiting more than one day care center per barangay.

This kiddie chair distribution project supports the intensification of literacy in District 1. This will continue to all other barangays in the district, Climaco added. — Marvin Segura
