DOLE AgSur launches Boyad Roadshow, hotline to intensify campaign vs child labor


BUTUAN CITY -- In celebration of the World Day Against Child Labor (WDACL), the Department of Labor and Employment Agusan del Sur Field Office (DOLE-ADSFO) launched the Boyad Roadshow with its first leg at the heart of the province, Datu Lipus Makapandong Cultural Center in the Capital Municipality of Prosperidad, Agusan del Sur.

"Boyad", a literal Manobo translation of “hand” depicting the theme of this year’s WDACL, is a campaign that aims to increase the appreciation and awareness of the department’s Child Labor and Prevention and Elimination Program (CLPEP) in the said province. Kaalam kits containing leaflets, merchandise like fridge magnets and stickers, hand clappers, and snacks as well as infographics about CLPEP and other DOLE programs were provided to the participants of the event. 


The participants were also involved in fun and interactive activities such as stamping their hand prints on the commitment wall, joining trivia games, and taking pictures at the event's photo booth.


“The provincial government of Agusan del Sur supports the Child Labor Prevention and Elimination Program of DOLE.  To all concerned employers, I just want to give emphasis that the provincial government is against Child Labor and other forms of abuse. Should you be caught getting involved in Child Labor, our office will respond appropriately. We will continue to promote the ‘No to Child Labor, Yes to Children Education’ campaign,” Governor Santiago Cane, Jr. said, as he led the pledging of commitment and hand print stamping. 


CLPEP aims to remove children from child labor, especially in its worst forms. The program is the department’s contribution to the Philippine Program Against Child Labor of the national government. 


The launching of the said event was simultaneously held with the celebration of Philippine Independence Day and the opening of the province’s Naliyagan Festival. (DOLE-Caraga/PIA-Agusan del Sur)
