Child rights drive mulled
BY RENE GENOVE
The Negros Oriental Child Advocacy Network has intensified its child protection program to help more than 5,000 children-beneficiaries in the province.
ONCAN consultant Kith Barrett of the Australian Business Volunteers said that, in collaboration with the local media, the campaign to protect children’s rights and other advocacy issues will have a great impact in raising community awareness.
Children who are roaming the streets, are abused, orphans, juvenile delinquents, displaced, or disabled, and those representing cultural minorities from the 25 ONCAN non-government organization members have the right to be heard and to voice their opinions, Barrett said.
