Sorsogon City celebrates National Children's Month

SORSOGON CITY– In celebration of National Children’s Month this year, the Provincial Council for the Protection of Children (PCPC) and Area-Based Standard Network (ABSNET) will be hosting a children’s forum on October 18, 2014 at the Provincial Gymnasium, this city.

Some 150 children between the ages of 13 to 17 from the 14 municipalities of Sorsogon and PCPC’s partner organizations signified to join the forum.

With the theme “Bata Kasali Ka, Ikaw ay Mahalaga,” the forum aims to bring to the children’s consciousness their significant role in all government undertakings.

Asst. Provincial Social Welfare and Development Officer Myra Relativo said the forum is a whole-day activity which will include talks on Child’s Participation Guidelines and Child Protection Policies.

Representatives the Council on Children’s Welfare (CWC) the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office will lead said discussions.

"The forum would likewise encourage stakeholders to promote and advocate children's participation in decision-making processes, in the family, school and community," she further said.

An open forum will follow after every discussion to provide an opportunity for the children to raise their concerns and share their ideas on the topics. 

Interactive games, fellowship, and bonding activities are also scheduled in the afternoon. These will be facilitated by Intervida, Good Neighbors, FACE Inc., and Casa Miani. 

The country's celebration of the National Children’s Month (NCM) every October of each year is pursuant to Presidential Proclamation 267, series of 1993. It calls for a nationwide celebration of children’s month to promote and protect the physical, moral, spiritual, intellectual and social well-being of the child as well as to emphasize the importance of the role of the child within the Filipino family and in nation building.

October 2014 marks the 22nd National Children’s Month Celebration. The annual celebration is spearheaded by the Council for the Welfare of Children since 1993 by virtue of Presidential Decree 603 or the Child and Youth Welfare Code.

Meanwhile, PCPC urged the local government units here to implement policies and programs that would protect the rights and welfare of children.—by Bennie A. Recebido, PIA
