Mankayan has been cited by the Social Welfare Department as a model local government unit in its implementation of day care service in the Cordillera.
Mankayan Mayor Frenzel Ayong received the award during the 69th DSWD anniversary celebration in Baguio.
Ayong said the recognition is because of municipal workers’ dedication and hard work.
“The award is an offshoot of the hardwork and dedication shown by our child-minding workers in providing our children with the needed preparations for their entry to formal education,” he said.
“We were not able to be given the award without the support of concerned stakeholders, especially our child-minding workers who showed their dedication to provide the needed preparations for our youth for their entry to basic education,” Ayong added.
