Media Forum on Children’s Rights
Tiwala Kids & Communities celebrated Valentine’s Day by participating in the Media Forum on Children’s Rights and Welfare. The forum was sponsored by UNICEF, Child’s Rights Network and Bicol Network for Children (of which Tiwala is a member). The event was attended by more than thirty journalists in Bicol and served as an orientation and advocacy to uphold juvenile justice in the country. It also called on the government to adopt a systematic need-based and right-based approach in protecting the welfare of children. The activity was a success as the media pledged their commitment to safeguard the rights of Filipino children.
