We officially started the National Children’s Month activities through “𝐏𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐚 𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐠𝐚 𝐁𝐚𝐭𝐚: 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐍𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐂𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐧’𝐬 𝐌𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐡 𝐊𝐢𝐜𝐤-𝐨𝐟𝐟 𝐂𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐲” at Valenzuela City Amphitheater, November 6, 2023.
It was indeed an opening festive celebration to highlight children’s rights to survive, develop, participate, and be protected with the guidance of their parents, guardians, teachers, and duty-bearers. Wearing their favorite fruits and vegetables, everyone was amazed by their creativity and eye-catching OOTDs, in line with the NCM 2023’s theme “𝐇𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐡𝐲, 𝐍𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐡𝐞𝐝, 𝐒𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐝: 𝐄𝐧𝐬𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐚𝐥𝐥”. The maximum participation of children, parents, and the messages from and attendance of the Council of the Welfare of Children’s Executive Director Angelo Tapales and our partners and visitors from the Valenzuela LGU, DSWD, DOH, NNC, UNICEF, and PhilHealth fulfilled the whole event.
Maraming-maraming salamat po sa lahat ng dumalo!
We also encourage everyone to join and support our month-long programs and activities this November. All LGUs are encouraged to celebrate NCM in their respective local areas based on DILG MC 2023-152.
