August 4, 2010
Municipal Development Center
Alegria, Surigao del Norte
The office of the Municipal Population of Alegria, through the all-out support of the local chief executive, Hon. Dominador G. Esma, Jr., conducted a pilot training on Learning Package on Adolescent Health and Development (LPPEAHD) held last August 4, 2010 at the Municipal Development Center, Alegria, Surigao del Norte which was participated in/attended by fifteen (15) couples of whom were the chosen few from among the students’ parents of Alegria National High School.
The training is an apt and timely response to the challenges of our young people who are living in an environment of constant change. Adolescents are exposed to various kinds of vulnerabilities, particularly those related to sexuality and reproductive health. As such, they need understanding, guidance and support from their parents. Specifically, the parents should provide these needs to their adolescent children.
The implementation of this program will highlight the role of parents as the primary source of accurate and sound information as they prepare their children to become responsible adults and citizens, equipping parents with sufficient knowledge and skills in promoting the program and strengthen the bonding between parents and adolescents, and also a recognizing that parents should invariability be the perfect role models for good and responsible behavior to their children.
The training cost amounted to Ten thousand eight hundred thirty- eight (Php 10,838.00) extracted from the 20% development fund (Support to Population) budget. We have five (5) facilitators including the Municipal Population Officer of this municipality. These were Mr. Juan T. Naldoza, CAO-III, Mrs. Perla S. Quisido, CAO-I, Mrs. Emma Aguila , CAA-I, Mrs. Joan R. Langtao, Mun. Population Officer of Placer, and Mrs. Janice A. Arellano, Mun.
