Navotas City has passed an ordinance granting incentives to graduates of public elementary, senior high and tertiary schools in the city.

City Ordinance 2019-3 states that the city government will provide cash incentives to all Navoteño graduates starting school year 2018-2019.

Vice Mayor Clint Geronimo endorsed the ordinance, saying he hoped it would encourage students to finish their studies and achieve more in life.

“We want to encourage Navoteño youth to finish their schooling in elementary and senior high. We also intend to help college graduates, who will soon look for jobs, be able to support their pre-employment needs,” Geronimo said.

Under the ordinance, graduates from public elementary schools in Navotas will receive P500. Those who finished senior high and college will receive P1,000 and P1,500, respectively.

Mayor John Rey Tiangco lauded the move, pointing out the importance of keeping Navoteño youth in school.

“Our city puts a high premium on education. We believe earning a diploma opens doors to achieving one’s dream or creating a better future,” he said.
