Several advocates and leaders from the grassroots were inducted yesterday as Barangay Population Volunteers by Councilor Karissa Tolentino-Maxino as they vowed to intensify the campaign on Reproductive Health, Responsible Parenthood and Family Planning of the City Government of Dumaguete as part of the implementation of the Philippine Population Program.
The Barangay Population Volunteers are women leaders and advocates who will help couples realize their desired timing, spacing and number of children in accordance with their socio-economic, emotional and psychological capacity.
As part of their training the volunteers underwent a 3-day training on responsible parenting, children’s rights, development of a child, essence of children, home management, fertility awareness, family planning, husband and wife relationship, parent and children relationship and return demonstrations.
