Cathay Pacific cabin crew holds field visit in Oriental Negros

Dumaguete City (12 October) -- Oriental Negros will host some 30 delegates of Cathay Pacific Cabin Crew for a learning visit on the Child-Friendly Movement in the Philippines next month in time of the Children's Month in October.

Of the 19 provinces and 5 cities under the 6th Country Programme for Children of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), Oriental Negros is selected to showcase some of the success programs and projects for children and women.

This exercise is in line with Unicef's Change for Good corporate partnership program with international airlines. Cabin crew members solicit spare coins and unused foreign notes from flight passengers and donate the amount to Unicef. Since 1991, Cathay Pacific has raised more than US$8 million.

The Change for Good field visit of Cathay Pacific cabin crew is designed to understand and appreciate the life-cycle and rights-based approaches to child rights programming.

The 30 stewardesses or cabin crews will be divided into 3 teams to visit focus municipalities-areas with a program that provides set of health and nutrition interventions for children, basic education, water and sanitation, juvenile justice, child labor, and youth participation which they can be oriented and articulate issues affecting children in the Philippines.

6th Country Programme for Children (CPC6) is a programme cooperation agreement between UNICEF and the Philippine Government. It runs from 2005 to 2009 with direct funding and technical assistance. CPC6 aims to promote the Child-Friendly Movement (CFM). The CFM advocates putting children first at the heart of the country's development agenda. (PIA) [top]
