Tobacco Free Generation International (TFGi) continues to congratulate and work with the people of Bataan, Philippines on the Tobacco Free Generation Endgame social movement. Starting with a community-wide, TFG tobacco prevention education curriculum in 2015, we shared our materials with the local leaders who continued the education across their entire community. Hard work and perseverance from grass-root leaders like Sir Cholo and his team, Sir Jernie and many others went out to schools to change mind-sets. It is these new generation of youths who then asked for the implementation of TFG principles and policy to protect their future generations.
After a 32,000 persons petition to the local Mayor, the community celebrated with a 16 thousand plus participants, record breaking dance event and received the World’s First Tobacco Free Generation City Award from TFGi.
TFG led a delegation of students from Raffles Institution Singapore to Balanga City, Philippines in September 2016. The program is a collaboration between TFG, Raffles Institution and the City of Balanga. RI students interacted with City of Balanga officials to learn more about the administration of a small city in the Philippines, especially in the area of implementation of a community healthcare initiative like tobacco free generation. The students also interacted with student leaders from leading schools in Balanga, exchanging ideas and working on a common themed project. Students were also given the opportunity to participate and lead in presentations to local schools, experiencing first hand community programs.
TFG express our thanks and gratitude to the various parties for making this trip a success, in particular Raffles Institution Singapore, officials from City of Balanga & Bataan National High School, Philippines.
