Six local government units (LGUs) in Region X (Bukidnon) passed the 2021 Child-Friendly Local Governance Audit (CFLGA).
Out of the 372 conferred LGUs for the seal of child-friendly local governance nationwide, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) named the city/municipality of Manolo Fortich with a rating of 93.82%, Cabanglasan 90.80%, San Fernando 86.58%, Malaybalay 86.14, Maramag 85.50 and Malitbog with 80.09%.
The LGUs were assessed based on the indicators categorized under the four core rights of children, which are Survival, Development, Protection, Participation & Governance.
The CFLGA is a mandatory audit chaired by the DILG and a results-based assessment tool designed to gauge the level of performance of LGUs insofar as implementing programs and instituting measures to uplift the welfare status of children. (PR)
