Did you know that today is the National Consciousness Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and Children?

In line with this, the Department of Education in partnership with the Philippine Commission on Women-Information Resource Management will conduct the annual 18-day Campaign to End Violence against Women and Children (VAWC). With this year’s theme “Violence Free Community Starts with Me”, DepEd and PWC encourage everybody to help spread awareness, strengthen their commitment to the cause, and forge partnerships that will help address and eliminate VAWC.

The campaign has officially started today and ends on December 12. Visit http://www.pcw.gov.ph/event/VAWfreePH for more details on the campaign and how you can contribute to the cause.
