A Gift Giving Activity for Child Laborers

Children are precious. They should not be deprived to enjoy their childhood - to play, to be sent to regular school and to be cared of with love and gentleness. But with the growing poverty of today, numerous children are engaged in Child Labor. They work and earn for their families. They work in busy streets and in other places that are physically, mentally and socially harmful to them. And for some, become victims of drug abuse.

One way to make children feel loved and cared of is through a gift. On November 25, 2017, a gift giving activity for 96 child laborers, with the theme, “Bata Iligtas sa Droga” was being held at Quezon City Hall’s Covered Walk. This was made possible through the efforts of Quezon City Tripartite Industrial Peace Council (QC TIPC). The children are from Barangays Holy Spirit, Masambong, Old Capitol Site, Batasan Hills, Novaliches Proper, Bungad and Payatas. It was also participated by Quezon City Public Employment Service Office (QC PESO), Quezon City Program Implementation Committee (QC PIC), Non-government Organizations (KBCF, LINGAP and ECPAT) and DOLE-NCR Quezon City Field Office’s Director, Lilibeth T. Cagara and Supervising Labor and Employment Officer, Mr. Raymond Benjamin R. Perez. Sponsors for the meals are DOLE-NCR Quezon City Field Office for breakfast, Jolibee for lunch and St. Lukes Medical Center (Quezon City) for the snacks. The gift consisting of school supplies and grocery items were sponsored by QC TIPC and Jolibee.

This activity has brought so much joy to the kids. Shown in their smiles is a sincere love shared to them.

This may be a part of QC TIPC’s corporate social responsibility, but the opportunity to give and embrace these little ones is an opportunity to feel blessed and grateful.
