Let’s celebrate National Children’s Month this November. It is a whole month dedicated to our amazing kids, and it’s all about giving them the best opportunities for a bright future. As our national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal, once wisely said, “The youth is the future of the nation.”

We all want Filipino kids to grow up in a healthy environment, get a good education, and have access to healthcare. But let’s face it, life can be tough, especially for families in a third-world country. Often, it’s the kids who bear the brunt of financial struggles. National Children’s Month is our chance to focus on ways we can help and support them.

National Children’s Month aims to assist kids who have faced abuse, poverty, natural disasters, and violence. It’s heartbreaking that, back in 2013, many children suffered from sexual abuse and exploitation. But we’re working to change that.

Thanks to Republic Act No. 10661, in 2015, November officially became National Children’s Month in the Philippines. It’s a time when we all come together to make a positive change for our children.

So, let’s mark National Children’s Month with big hearts and strong support for our little ones. Each child deserves a future that’s full of joy and sunshine, and when we come together, we can turn that into reality!
