Zamboanga to host regional congress, awarding of most child-friendly city and municipality

Zamboanga City (27 October) -- The Zamboanga Peninsula Regional Children’s Congress and Awarding of the Most Child Friendly City and Municipality, highlighting this year’s celebration of the National Children’s month will be held in Zamboanga City on October 30.

Talented children from the different provinces and cities in the region will compete in singing, folk dancing and Draw & Tell competition categories during the congress. The contestants are the winners in the city and provincial level search conducted in their respective areas.

The regional congress aims to advocate the convergence of services for children as well as providing them the opportunity to showcase their talents and express their views and perceptions on issues affecting themselves, their families and the community as a whole, even at this early stage in their life.

Pre-schoolers, day-care workers, local social workers, child advocates from various national and non-government organizations are the participants to the congress.

The awarding of the Most Child Friendly City and Municipality will be held simultaneously with the Children’s Congress. The search aims to give due recognition to the outstanding LGUs in their efforts to sensitize a child friendly environment through child friendly local governance.

The regional awardees will vie for the national level award, which is a Presidential Award, being administered every two years by the National Council for the Welfare of Children (NCWC) under the Office of the President.

The National Children’s Month is being observed every October, with this year’s theme: “Bright Child: Yaman ng Pamilya, Yaman ng Bansa!” which aims to give recognition to the role of a nurturing family and the nation in producing a Bright Child.

As a progressive advocacy at the community level, the theme specifically hopes to encourage members of the community to actively respond to children’s rights through convergence of programs and services for the child. (DSWD/PIA) [top]
