As part of DOLE’s commitment to the Philippine Program Against Child Labor (PPACL), and in celebration of World Day Against Child Labor, the Institute for Labor Studies held a policy dialogue on the theme: MAPANGANIB NA PAGGAWA, BAWAL SA BATA. The main objective of the forum was to stir-up discussion among stakeholders on hazardous work for children and deepen understanding on the emerging issues crucial in addressing child labor in the country. The forum gathered more than 70 participants from the PPACL network led by the Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (TUCP), Federation of Free Workers (FFW), Teachers Inc, Visayan Forum, ABK2, SUMAPI, Department of Education, Council for the Working Children, and Philippine National Police.
