LGU-Camalig recently placed third in the 2021 Regional Child-Friendly Local Governance Audit (CFLGA) by the Department of the Interior & Local Government (DILG).
Out of 114 LGUs in the entire Bicol Region, Camalig bagged the top 3 spot in the CFLGA, garnering a rating of 94.12%.
The CFLGA is an assessment of the performance of LGUs in implementing child-friendly programs and services intended to promote and uplift the welfare of children.
It uses indicators covering governance and the four core rights of children, namely survival, development, protection and participation.
In a previous press statement, Camalig Local Chief Executive, Hon. Carlos Irwin G. Baldo, Jr. reiterated that his administration’s compliance was rendered not only to receive the Seal of Child-Friendly Local Governance but most importantly to underscore his commitment in establishing Camalig as a safe haven for the children.
