Wanted: Anti-VAW awardees
Roxas City (29 April) -- The National Council on the Role of Filipino Women (NCRFW) is accepting nominations for its two anti-Violence Against Women (VAW) awards.
These awards are the Gender Justice Awards II (Search for the Most Gender-Sensitive Decisions on VAW Cases) and the Outstanding VAW-Responsive LGUs which were simultaneously launched last year.
"The awards aim to strengthen the awareness of public officials in handling cases involving women's rights and give merit to those who create positive impact by involving women and men in transforming their lives and the societal structures," said a NCRFW portal news.
The nominations for the Gender Justice Awards II will be accepted until May 31, 2009 while the Outstanding VAW-Responsive LGUs will be received until June 30, 2009.
"Nominations should be forwarded at the NCRFW Office 1145 JP Laurel Street, San Miguel, Manila," the news noted.
The awarding on both searches will be held on November 25, 2009 during the annual celebration of the 18-Day Campaign to End VAW.
