Watchmen Daily Journal - - Front Page -

Ev­ery Novem­ber, the Philip­pines ob­serves Na­tional Chil­dren’s Month, which was es­tab­lished by RA 10661, or the Na­tional Chil­dren’s Month Act, signed into law by then-Pres­i­dent Benigno S. Aquino III.

Ac­cord­ing to the Coun­cil for the Wel­fare of

Chil­dren (CWC), the ob­ser­vance cel­e­brates and rec­og­nizes Filipino chil­dren for their im­por­tant role in so­ci­ety.

This year’s ob­ser­vance will pro­mote the Philip­pine Plan of Ac­tion to End Vi­o­lence Against Chil­dren, which was launched last year and is ex­pected to run un­til 2022. The project plans to for­mu­late strate­gies to end vi­o­lence against chil­dren.

CWC also dis­cussed ways to cel­e­brate the month-long ob­ser­vance, in­clud­ing hang­ing tar­pau­lins, which are avail­able for down­load on their web­site; recit­ing the Panatang Mak­a­bata dur­ing flag cer­e­monies; dis­tribut­ing in­for­ma­tion about Na­tional Chil­dren’s Month, among other sug­ges­tions./
