Children advocates learn from Zambo practice

Zamboanga City (February 21) -- Members of the Child Abuse Protection and Intervention Network (CAPIN) from Legaspi City and Masbati Tuesday visited Zamboanga to learn about the city's best practices in children protection.

The group headed by officials from the Social Action Center in Legaspi City dubs the Zamboanga tour as "Project Exposure Visit" aimed to get a glimpse of how Zamboanga City addresses its problem on street and urban working children.

Mayor Celso Lobregat welcomed to Zamboanga the children advocates who paid him a courtesy visit Tuesday. He briefed the CAPIN members about the city's on going programs to protect children from abuse and exploitation.

The city government, through the City Social Welfare and Development Office under Francisco Barredo in coordination with non-government organizations is serious in its campaign related to children welfare and protection, according to Lobregat.

Just last week, Lobregat said, he created and convened the Council for the Protection of Children, a body that will oversee all programs concerning children.

The Council, led by the mayor, is pursuant to Ordinance 275 and existing national laws. It is the umbrella organization of all children councils including those formed by non-government organizations.

Barredo said the group visited the different centers in the city that cater to children's problems and interventions.

He said the group chose Zamboanga City as the target of its exposure visit because of the city's best practices in child protection.

The 17-delegates on exposure visit to Zamboanga on Feb. 19-21, is hosted by the Archdiocese of Zamboanga and Barredo's office. (CIO/PIA9-zc)[top]
