Camp BGen Simeon A Ola, Legazpi City--- The youth plays a vital role in nation-building because they are considered as the determiners of peace in the community that would allow the country to move towards progress and development.

However, with the health crisis that the entire nation is presently experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, children have become vulnerable of acquiring the virus. They are also placed at risk to violence amidst emergency conditions in the country such as sexual violence and exploitation.

With this in mind, the Police Regional Office 5, tasked with the primary duty to serve and protect the community is one with the entire PNP organization in celebrating the 28th National Children’s Month (NCM).

The celebration kicked-off on November 10, 2020 which was followed by a series of virtual activities. In compliance with the new normal, the NCM shall utilize quad media as a tool in tackling and educating Filipinos on Children’s rights, parenting and the concerns surrounding them.

This year’s celebration aims to provide protection of all children and their rights, provide practical support to parents and caregivers on how to care for children and themselves during the pandemic, empower children to protect themselves and report experience of abuse and guide LGUs to efficiently deliver their expected roles and functions.

This also specifically intends to intensify public awareness on children’s rights and knowledge, adequate care for children and application of positive discipline in daily dealings with children; Promote further the institutionalization of child friendly environment and governance by promoting implementation and monitoring of child related protocols and the sub-national levels; provide a platform for disclosure on persistent and arising issues pertaining to the children’s rights to survival, development, protection , and participation during and post COVID-19; empower the children as rights-holders to claim and protect their rights; and equip the duty bearers to deliver their commitment and fulfil their obligations to protect and fulfil rights of children.

To truly realize these objectives, the PNP, together with its stakeholders, shall continue to work hand-in-hand to safeguard and ensure security of our children and the youth.
