Municipality of Daanbantayan thru the Municipal Social Welfare and Development (MSWD) Office celebrated the National Children’s Month with a whole-day activity participated in by Day Care centers from different barangays. The event started with an early morning parade, followed by a program held at Lamberto R. Te Cultural Center where our young children showcased their talents and skills in different presentations like draw and tell, folk dance and singing.
This year marks the 27th celebration of the National Children’s Month which is pursuant to Republic Act No. 10661 entitled “An Act Declaring the Month of November of Every Year as the National Children’s Month”, which also commemorates the adoption of United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN CRC) on November 20, 1989.
With the theme “Karapatang Pambata: Patuloy na Pahalagahan at Gampanan Tungo sa Magandang Kinabukasan”, the celebration aims to recognize the gains and successes of the Philippines in the promotion and protection of children’s rights. Joining the event were Municipal Councilors Jupiter Roy Rosell and Simplicio Mantos with Municipal Administrator Cristina E. Corro.
