Marikina City continues to prioritize the safety of its residents as it launched its "Ilaw ng Pag-asa" program, a streetlighting project aimed at providing better lighting and security to its streets. According to Mayor Marcy Teodoro, the streetlights are not just for aesthetic purposes, but also for the safety and security of the residents.

"Hindi kosmetiko o ayestetiko lamang ang mga pailaw na ito. Mas maliwanag, mas safe ka. Mas panatag ka na may kaligtasan," Mayor Marcy Teodoro said.

Congresswoman Maan Teodoro also emphasized that the project is not limited to well-lit and long streets but also includes small alleys and callejons that need proper lighting for safety.


"Hindi lamang po ang mga malalaki at mahahabang kalye ang iniilawan natin. Ang binibigyang pansin po natin ay yung mga hindi nabibigyang pansin tulad ng mga maliliit na kalye, loobang eskinita o callejon. Ito po ang pinaiilawan natin dahil higit sa lahat mas nangangailangan sila ng liwanag para sa kanilang kaligtasan at kapanatagan," Congresswoman Maan Teodoro said.

The "Ilaw ng Pag-asa" project continued even on a Saturday as Congresswoman Maan Teodoro and Mayor Marcy Teodoro led the lighting of streetlights in the Holy Family Homeowners Association in Diego Silang St. and Gardenia Homes in Barangay Parang. The event also witnessed the swearing-in of the new officers of the homeowners' association. Last night, the project was also launched in Victory Hills and Kawayan Village in Barangay Fortune, where residents warmly welcomed Cong. Maan and Mayor Marcy.

Marikina City is fortunate to have received funding from Congresswoman Maan Teodoro, which the city government has used for beneficial projects such as the "Ilaw ng Pag-asa" project. The project aims to provide better safety and security for the residents of Marikina City.
