DOLE CAVITE CONDUCTS ADVOCACY TO END CHILD LABOR

Dr. Arceli P. Petrasanta, Principal of Naic Coastal National High School poses with the students and Ms. Myrose B. Basila and Engr. Jasper L. Boneo of DOLE CPO during the advocacy campaign on RA 9231 in celebration of World Day Against Child Labor.

As part of the anti-child labor campaign, DOLE Cavite Provincial Office (CPO) conducted advocacy on Republic Act 9231(RA 9231). The advocacy campaign was conducted on June 23, 2015 at Naic Coastal National High School located at Calle Cena, Barangay Labac, Naic, Cavite. Ms. Myrose B. Basila, child labor focal person of DOLE CPO conducted lecture and gave information on the salient features of RA 9231. The activity was attended by 67 participants coming from the students, officers of Student Governance, teachers and non-teaching staffs. Dr. Arceli P. Petrasanta, school principal, gave her support to make the activity possible. According to Dr. Petrasanta, many of their students do not attend school which causes a high percentage of drop outs last school year. She also thanked DOLE for giving information to their students that helped raise their awareness on the issues of child labor.

Education has a key role to play to prevent children from engaging in the worst forms of child labor. Through the Philippine Program Against Child Labor (PPACL), one of the flagship program of DOLE, the Constitution also recognizes the vital role of youth in nation-building and shall also protect children from economic exploitation and from performance of work likely to be hazardous or interference to their education, health, physical, mental, spiritual, moral and social development.
