The Council for the Welfare of Children (CWC) conducted the Philippine Plan of Action to End Violence Against Children Advocacy and Communication Plan (PPAeVAC AdvoCom Plan) on June 20- 23, 2017 held at El Cielito Inn, Baguio City.

Participated by 46 representatives from government agencies, non-government organizations, and as well as partners from the UNICEF, the activity aims develop an AdvoCom Plan for the PPAeVAC, as the Philippines' response to the results of the National Baseline Study on Violence Against Children (NBS-VAC).

Dr. Dante Velasco together with Professor Rica Abad and Dr. Julienne Cubelo of the University of the Philippines Mass Communication Foundation, Incorporated served as the Facilitators of the workshop.

The AdvoCom Plan must be Practical, Doable and Possible ", says CWC Deputy Executive Director Atty. Marijoy D. Segui in her opening message.

During the four-day activity, the participants worked on the three areas of AdvoCom Strategies, namely: 1) Parenting and Caregivers Advocacy Strategy, (2) Child Participation; and (3) Policy Advocacy. The final outputs will be used as basis in drafting the PPAEVAC AdvoCom Plan.

The finalized PPAeVAC AdvoCom Plan will be launched during the 2017 National Children's Month Celebration this November.

This activity is one of the CWC’s initiatives to continuously provide a violence-free Philippines for our children.
