Kaugmaon successfully presented the findings of the Child Labor Research conducted in 5 barangays in Davao City namely Callawa, Mandug, Panacan, Ilang and Tibungco. The forum was held in Grand Men Seng Hotel last April 11, 2013. The activity was well attended from various stakeholders, from academe, barangay councils, BCPC members, partner NGOs and government agencies. Part of the panel of reactors were coming from Department of Labor and Employment, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Department of Education and Department of Interior and Local Government. The findings of the research were accepted by the participants and even well appreciated for coming up with a research on child labor.
In the forum the video documentary of child labor issues was also presented which ignited a very participative discussion among the participants.
The forum was covered by a local television station which we considered a great help in disseminating the research findings and the child labor issue as well.
