Cagayan de Oro is one of the nominees in the ‘Presidential Award for Child-Friendly Cities’ under the highly urbanized city category.
This was revealed by Patricia B. Luna, the executive director of the Council for the Welfare of Children. Cagayan de Oro is the regional awardee in the “Seal of Child-Friendly Local Governance’ which became the reason why CDO is in the shortlist in the Presidential Award for Child Friendly Cities.
The different departments at the city hall and the local council are now preparing the necessary documents and requirements that will be submitted in the National Awards Committee (NAC).
On November 25 to 28, the members of the NAC will visit the city to conduct evaluation and validation. They are expected to check the model child-friendly barangay in Cagayan de Oro which is Barangay Bugo and the other barangays as well.
