“BALAY N I AMBOT” was inaugurated on August 5, 2021. The activity was graced by Asec Joyce Niwane of the DSWD Policy and Plans.
Balay ni Ambot means balay ti namnama ken ragsak. Usually the name refers to a boy’s nickname. A child being a gift from God, he is the joy and hope of the parents. Asec Joseline Niwane, DSWD, graced the occassion as the guest of honor by emphasizing the obligation of parents to norture our children physically,emotionally and spiritually. Childrens in Conflict with Law must be the dealt by the blgus with care and concern before referring to the balay ni ambot. She also added, ” indeed Lamut has proven once again their mantra UMUNA ti LAMUT , to construct their own bahay pag-asa and so explains why Lamut is a consistent awardee of CHILD FRIENDLY MUNICIPALITY”.The 18M four(4) storey building balay ni ambot constructed out of the MLGU funds will now serve as the house of our children who are in conflict with the law(CICL) for behavioral treatment.In my message, “in coming years this balay ni ambot will not only cater the children who are in conflict with the law but soon will also serve as refuge of our Husbands who are in conflict of their wives. As our Sangguniang Bayan will enact our VAMC ordinance in Lamut in the coming days.( and Soon to be one of our priority bill in congress)-Dee Jay-m FB Post
