DSWD gets into children vs violence campaign

Davao City (2 April) -- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has widened its crusade on child protection and has recently embarked on Children against Violence campaign.

DSWD Secretary Esperanza I. Cabral led the campaign's recent launching at the Museo Pambata in Manila that was graced by singer/actor Gary Valenciano who rendered a song and delivered a message as the national ambassador of United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).

The Children Against Violence is a joint advocacy and social mobilization campaign to support the National Strategic Framework for Action of the Philippines regarding concerns on violence involving children.

The campaign wages a crusade to further raise public awareness on recognizing forms of violence at various settings and situations involving children and on reporting cases of violence against children to proper authorities.

The Children Against Violence seeks the participation and involvement of children in helping other children realize that they are in a violent situation so they would be able to protect themselves from becoming a victim of any form of violence.

Aside from the DSWD, other partner-agencies in the campaign are the Council for the Welfare of Children (CWC), Christian Children's Fund, End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and Trafficking for Sexual Purposes (ECPAT) Phils., Save the Children - Sweden, Open Heart Foundation, Philippine National Police - Women and Children's Protection Center, Plan Philippines, and UNICEF.
