Press Release

29 April 2016


The Council for the Welfare of Children (CWC) warns everyone, especially the students and parents, to be vigilant on suspicious advertisements preying on girls.

A concerned citizen reported to the CWC an online advertisement on the internet on April 13, 2016 while on search for rooms to rent.

The report came with the screen-captured advertisement, captioned with “Free room and food for school girls.”

It was also stated “I would like to offer free room and food for school going kids and girls. No rent required. Just for kind. God bless. Text me (+xxxxxxxxxxx).”

Further, the CWC deeply encourages everyone to be vigilant and report too good to be true advertisements to the proper authorities which could prevent victimization of girls and women.

The orientation covers CWC mandate, vision mission, the basics on CWC's framework for a Child-Friendly Philippines which include the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN-CRC), National Plan of Action for Children among others.

Most importantly, the RC/SCWC Technical Staff were oriented on the RC/SCWC roles and functions and its functionality indicators and were clarified on their critical roles as

RC/SCWC Technical Staff.

As expected, the RC/SCWC Technical Staff came up with their respective workplans based on the 2016 Work and Financial Plan and Indicative Plans developed by during the Chairpersons and Members' Cluster Conference in 2015.
