After its successful launching in Prosperidad, Agusan del Sur, the Boyad Roadshow carried out its second leg in the Municipality of Rosario during the Job Fair, one of PESO Rosario’s activities in the 1st Buyawan Festival and 53rd Araw ng Rosario.
During the event, LEO III Josel-An E. Dua introduced “boyad”, a literal Manobo translation of “hand” depicting the theme of this year’s World Day Against Child Labor (WDACL). She also discussed its objectives and deliverables stressing the importance of working together to progressively eliminate child labor in the Municipality of Rosario and the Province of Agusan del Sur.
Depicting the World Day Against Child Labor’s theme for this year, Ms. Dua led the Pledge of Commitment in support of the Department’s Child Labor Prevention and Elimination Program (CLPEP). It was then followed by the hand stamping and signing on the commitment wall led by outgoing Municipal Mayor Hon. Jupiter C. Abulog, who expressed gratitude and excitement for the municipality’s celebration.
The Boyad Roadshow is one of the Department of Labor and Employment’s campaigns that aims to increase awareness and appreciation of the fight against child labor.
