EMPOWERING WOMEN, CHILDREN TOGETHER
EMPOWERING WOMEN, GIRLS, AND CHILDREN TOGETHER. As part of women’s month community outreach program, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Region 2 distributed tokens to beneficiaries of the Regional Haven for Women and Girls (RHWG) and Reception and Study Center for Children (RSCC) on March 21, this year in Lingu, Solana, Cagayan.
Through the assistance of Kalipunan ng mga Kawani sa Kagawaran ng Kalikasan (K4), Bureau of Forest Development Multi-Purpose Cooperative, and Lands Integrated Cooperative, almost 50 beneficiaries were provided basic needs such as clothing, towels, umbrellas, tumblers, papers, colored pencils, ballpen, blue-tooth radios and percolators.
In her message, K4 President Marina Malamug commended the efforts of the institutions for their hard work and commitment. She said the DENR is in support of the gender and development programs where empowering women, girls and children is one of its external activities.
Also gracing the event were Shirley Labugen and Rosario Corpuz, both center heads, and other DENR personnel.
The RHWG is an alternative form of family care to disadvantaged and abused women and girl victims or survivors, and their qualified dependent whose needs cannot be adequately met by their own families and relatives over a period of time; while the RSCC provides protection and rehabilitation services through temporary residential care to neglected, abandoned, abused and exploited children and those with special needs such as children at risk and who are in need of alternative family care.#
