The City Government of Malaybalay, led by Mayor Jay Warren R. Pabillaran was conferred a passer for the Seal of Child Friendly Local Governance Audit (CFLGA) in the province of Bukidnon on October 24, 2022, by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).

The city was named one of the top six local government units (LGUs) in Bukidnon, receiving an 86.14% rating, and will be awarded the Seal of Child-Friendly Local Governance (SCFLG) for fiscal year 2021.

CFLGA is an assessment of the performance of LGUs designed to gauge the level of performance of LGUs in implementing child-friendly programs and services intended to promote and uplift the welfare of children.

Further, the LGUs were assessed based on the indicators categorized under the four core rights of children, which are survival, development, protection, participation, and governance.

Malaybalay City will continue to work together in sustaining a child-friendly city and, most importantly, to underscore the commitment in establishing Malaybalay as a model LGU of good governance, transparency, and accountability.
