DOLE Cavite celebrated the 2018 World Day Against Child Labor (WDACL) on June 13, 2018 at Audio Visual Room (AVR), FCIE Admin Building, Dasmariñas City. On this year’s World Day Against Child Labor (WDACL), it focused on strategies at all levels to end hazardous child labor and address the specific safety and health risks faced by young workers. WDACL 2018 global theme is “Generation Safe & Health” and translated as “Ligtas at Malusog na Batang Malaya.”

All children have the right to be free from all forms of child labor and all workers have the right to safe and healthy workplaces. Many factors contribute to hazardous child labor and the high rate of work-related injuries and illnesses among children and young workers. What is certain is that much more can and must be done. All children must be protected at all times.

As part of the anti-child labor campaign and enjoining on the global celebration of WDACL, DOLE Cavite Provincial Office (CPO) conducted advocacy campaign and learning session to private companies in Cavite including Project Angel Tree program partners. Ms. Ma. Angelique E.

The activity was attended by a total of 46 participants from private companies, non-government organizations and government partners. A total of 21 private companies composed of HR Managers and Safety Officers participated in the learning session.
