Bong Go joins building turnover in Community College of Gingoog City in Misamis Oriental
Sen. Bong Go on Thursday, 19 January, personally witnessed the turnover and blessing of a new building in Community College of Gingoog City in Misamis Oriental.
The funding for the said infrastructure was advocated by Go as Vice Chair of the Senate Committee on Finance.
In his speech, Go maintained that he will continue to support and develop measures and programs that would benefit the country’s education sector, underscoring that education is key to a better future.
“Sinuportahan ko po talaga ang pagpapagawa ng building na ito dahil naniniwala talaga ako na ang edukasyon ang susi sa magandang kinabukasan. Kaya naman tiwalang-tiwala ako na napakaraming mga estudyante at guro ang makikinabang dito sa bagong gusali na ito,” expressed Go.
“Good facilities and good infrastructure can significantly contribute to good school outcomes. Kaya naman palagi akong sumusuporta sa mga ganitong klaseng inisyatibo dahil ito naman po ay para sa ating mga kabataan. This is my own small way of encouraging our Filipino children to study and finish their studies so that they will be productive members of your community in the future,” he added.
In line with his efforts to assist struggling students nationwide, Go and his team provided assistance to 750 students who were present during the event. Among the items given were grocery packs, masks, vitamins, shirts, and meals.
They also gave away bicycles, cellular phones, shoes, caps, watches, and balls for basketball and volleyball to select beneficiaries.
“As Chair sa Committee on Sports (sa Senado), gusto ko ipagpatuloy ang kampanya ni (dating) pangulong (Rodrigo) Duterte noon na labanan ang kriminalidad at ilegal na droga. Kaya ine-engganyo ko ang kabataan to get into sports, stay away from drugs. Ilayo natin ang kabataan sa ilegal na droga kaya namimigay ako ng bola sa inyo dito,” Go urged.
“Ang mga inisyatibong tulad nito (ay) nakakatulong sa mga kabataan. Alam n’yo kapag tinutukan natin ang edukasyon, natututukan rin natin ang kabataan na ilayo sila sa ilegal na droga. Tumutok na lang sa edukasyon,” he stressed.
Furthermore, the Department of Social Welfare and Development gave away financial assistance to each indigent student.
