Solo parents hold 2nd summit

LINGAYEN– Some 250 solo parents from the six districts of the province participated in the two-day 2nd Solo Parents’ Summit organized by the Provincial Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) on May 9, 2019 at the Sison Auditorium.

 Ang pangunahing layunin po ng kaganapang ito ay para palaganapin po ang kaalaman sa ating mga solo parents dito sa probinsya, kung anu-ano ang mga benepisyo at tulong ang kanilang makukuha mula sa national agencies at provincial government,” said PSWD Officer Emilio P. Samson.

Kasama niyo po kami sa inyong pag-akyat, kasama niyo po kami sa laban niyo kaya’t ‘wag po kayong mag-atubiling lumapit sa Provincial Government dahil hindi po kami magsasawang tulungan kayo,” said Dr. Irmina B. Francisco, Chief Administrative Officer, on behalf of Provincial First Lady Karina P. Espino.

On the theme, “Empower, Engage and Educate Solo Parents in Pangasinan,” Francsiso said the provincial government seeks to boost the confidence of the solo parents in the province.

Lectures on Awareness on PhilHealth Programs and Services on the Availment of Benefits, Sustainable Livelihood Program, and Awareness on SSS Programs and Services on Membership and Benefits as a volunteer SSS member were discussed during the 1st day of the program.

The provincial government also prepared a socialization night for the attendees at the President Hotel after the symposium of Day 1.

On the second day, lectures on Basic Cookery, Basic Electrical Installation, Plumbing, Carpentry, Masonry, and Tile Setting were administered by Provincial Employment and Services Officer Manager Alex F. Ferrer; on gender gap and differences by Mona S. Alavazo, Provincial Women and GAD Focal Person.

Samson cited the activities of 27 organized Municipal Solo Parents’ Association in the province. “Looking forward po tayo na mabuo natin 44, sa 44 cities/municipalities dito sa ating buong probinsya.”
