PIA Press Release

Ifugao youth participate in National Youth Parliament

by Vency D. Bulayungan

LAGAWE, Ifugao (23 October) -- As partners in nation building, four youth here will participate in the 6th National Youth Parliament and preparatory skills training on Legislative Advocacy on October 19-21 2006 at Tagbilaran City, Province of Bohol.

Roy Dimayuga, Provincial Coordinator of the United Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) here said that the activity aims to gather youth leaders in the country to discuss the prevailing issues affecting them and to serve as venue for them to craft policy recommendations in the pursuit of advancing youth concern.

Sponsored by the National Youth Commission, with the support of the UNFPA, the young participants from the municipalities of Asipulo, Lagawe, Tinoc and one provincial representative will be trained on legislative advocacy by the Philippine Legislators Committee on Population and Development (PLCPD) to hone their skills in debating, lobbying, policy and decision making.

Dimayuga identified the provincial representatives as Rogelio Pe Benito Jr. from Asipulo; Arturo Guinaob, Jr. of Lagawe, Ringo Guyon of Tinoc and Maribelle Bimohya from the provincial government.

The overall objective of this initiative is to develop youth advocates who may effectively influence decision makers to create an environment supportive of holistic youth development.

“We hope that the participants will be able to develop their skills on legislative advocacy and be able to replicate their learnings to their fellow youth when they come home,” Dimayuga said.

“Recognizing the relevance and importance of this initiative particularly in advancing and influencing policies that would create opportunities for greater access of young people on adolescent reproductive health information and services, the UNDFPA, in partnership with the national government and non- government organizations, supported this initiative by sending participants from the province,” Dimayuga said.
