DOLE Intensify Advocacy on Child Labor Through “Himig Para Sa Kabataan”

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Negros Occidental Field Office, in partnership with Christian Advocates for Justice and Development in Negros (CAJDEN), Inc. is holding an advocacy concert entitled “Himig Para sa Kabataan” on November 21, 2018, 7:00 PM at the USLS Coliseum featuring music industry icon, Mr. Joey Ayala and his band. This concert will serve as the culminating activity of the Children’s Month Celebration of DOLE Negros Occidental Field Office which will also highlight the Department’s 1 Million Batang Malaya Campaign.


Pursuant to the policy of the government to provide special protection to children from all forms of abuse, neglect, cruelty, exploitation, and against child labor and its worst forms, the DOLE, being the lead agency of the Philippine Program Against Child Labor (PPACL) through its banner program – the Child Labor Prevention and Elimination Program (CLPEP), works tirelessly in the prevention and progressive elimination of child labor through the protection, withdrawal, healing and reintegration of child workers into a caring society.


CLPEP also addresses the needs of the disadvantaged youth to pursue an academic or technical-vocational, post-secondary course towards becoming more employable and more productive members of the labor force.


Moreover, it supports human capital build-up by providing the youth some workplace experience while studying. Lastly, it develops the youth’s proper work values and ethics through exposure to formal workplace situations and challenges under responsible adult supervision.


In line with this, DOLE requests the support of the public for this cause. Concert tickets are at P100.00, P200.00, P300.00, P500.00, P700.00 and P1,000.00 and may be purchased at the DOLE Negros Occidental Field Office, Cottage Road, Bacolod City. The Office may also be contacted at (034) 434-2219 for further information on the matter.
