Daba calls on interfaith to share word of God in dev’t centers


“NAKITA nako karon nga kulang ang mga kabataan sa pagrespeto ug pagtahod nila sa ilang mga ginikanan”.


This was stressed by Councilor Reuben R. Daba, chair of the City Council committee on social services, during the regular session on Monday presided over by Vice Mayor Raineir Joaquin V. Uy, as he expressed his desire to include moral recovery program through trainings and orientation for the children and the youth of the city.


In his special report, Councilor Daba cited the need to collaborate with the interfaith in order to visit Child Development Centers in different barangays. This is to train the children ages three to seven years old through religious education so that they will remain God fearing, he said.


“Dili deperensya atong culture, deperensya ang atong religion. Pero isa lang ang kulang, training”, he said.

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it,” he quoted.


Councilor Daba said children from the past generations were respectful and obedient.


“Akong makumpara ang kabatan-onan sa among panahon nga kun magkatagbo sa mga ginikanan dako kaayo ang ilang pagrespeto pinaagi sa paghatag katahuran,” he said.


With this, Councilor Daba requested the legislative body for a resolution appealing to interfaith to conduct religious trainings to children.


Vice Mayor Uy referred the special report to the committee on social services chaired by Councilor Daba for further discussion. (SP/JBD)
