By Venus H. Sarmiento

Bayambang, Pangasinan (19 February) -- Government, non-government agencies and private sectors agreed to cooperate with each other to form a solid front at the regional and local levels in order to plan and implement an effective campaign against women and child abuse.

The Group, known as the Regional Crusade Against Women and Child Abuse (RCAWCA) recently met with its members to plan an integrated awareness and prevention campaign in the whole Region 1, particularly in the schools and communities.

Commission on Human Rights Regional Director Anita Chauhan presided over the meeting held at the Lozano garden in barangay Buenlag, Bayambang town which happens to be the hometown of the current RCAWCA chair, Norma J. Lozano, who is also the Region 1 chair of the National Anti Poverty Commission.

The RCAWCA, as explained by Chauhan, is a crusade or movement organized in 2002 through Resolution No. 2 series of 2000 passed by the Regional Development Council

Government agencies that signed up as members include the Department of Social Welfare and Development, Philippine National Police, National Economic Development Authority, Commission on Human Rights, Department of Education, Department of Labor and Employment, Commission on Higher Education, Department of Health Department of Justice, Civil Service Commission, Philippine Information Agency, Department of Budget and Management, Nutrition, Bureau of Jail Management and Penology, Regional Trial Court, Child Protection Units of government hospitals and Gender and Development Centers.

NGOs and private sectors were also tapped as members.

Eight activities were identified by the body for the action plan: resource generation, procurement of IEC materials, capacity building, campaign to LGUs for tarpaulins, advocacy for Gender and Development, membership expansion, directory of agency/institution hotlines and member action plan on child and women abuse.

For the women's month celebration, RCAWA plans to have a motorcade from Pangasinan to Ilocos Norte on March 20, where the contest dubbed as 'Katangi- tanging Babae sa Pamayanan" will also be launched. (PIA-Pangasinan) [top]
