NAVOTAS City Mayor John Rey Tiangco said they’ve launched the Citizen Registration Program called ‘NavoRehistro’ which was marked by a ceremonial commitment signing with the concerned sectors.

It aims to identify efficiently and accurately the individuals and families residing, working, or registered to vote in Navotas.

NavoRehistro also seeks to streamline citizen’s access to vital public services and improve the city’s service delivery across various sectors, including social services, healthcare, education, livelihood and peace and order.

“We urge every Navoteño to take part in this initiative. Through this program, the city government will be able to build and maintain a comprehensive database. This, in turn, will enable us to allocate resources effectively and implement services tailor-fit to the needs of our people.”

The partnership the local government forged with the Department of Social Welfare and Development has resulted in the granting of financial subsidy to nearly 4,000 ‘Navoteños’ who are registered fisherfolk and tricycle ‘de padyak’ drivers.

Each fisherfolk and motorcycle drivers got P3,000 cash subsidy from DSWD’s Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situations program, Tiangco said.

He then reminded the beneficiaries to prioritize the needs of their families and save up for the future.

He also encouraged them to avail the services of the city government.

Meanwhile, it distributed the educational assistance to 355 public special education students or students with disability.

The beneficiaries received P1,000 for the months of March and April.

         Internship Program

The city government has employed 30 young talents who would work for seven months and would receive P610 a day under the Government Internship Program (GIP), Mayor JRT said.

“Start strong and work excellently from your first day onwards. By cultivating positive habits, we build good character that we will carry wherever our journey takes us,” he told the interns.

The local government said the GIP primarily aims to provide opportunities and engage young workers in the field of public service.

Under the same program, he said the young talents would find opportunity to gain work experience as added requirement in applying later for other regular jobs.
