San Fernando Christian Community hosted the Youth Forum On the Rights of Children and Other Related Laws conducted by the Commission on Human Rights. Youth ages 13 and above were introduced to the Basic Rights of Children and Other Related Laws. The seminar attendees were surprised that they were not aware of most of their rights. They expressed their gratitude that their awareness and knowledge have been greatly enhanced. Julie Madriaga, one of the participants, said that the thing that struck her most was this: “Ang bawat karapatan ay may kalakip na responibilidad.” (“Every right has a corresponding responsibility.”)
Knowing that their rights are protected and that they do have a voice that can be heard has greatly empowered this budding young generation.
Let’s hear it for tomorrow’s leaders!
