Radio Guesting at Radyo Guagua 99.9 FM
On December 9, 2021, TESDA Pampanga Provincial Office Gender and Development (GAD) Focal Person and Information Officer, Ms. Guia Marie V. Fernandez attended a radio guesting at Radyo Guagua 99.9 FM, the local radio station in the Municipality of Guagua, together with Ms. Emily G. Feliciano, the Center Administrator of the Provincial Training Center-Guagua and Ms. Ednalyn Fajardo as the Department of Education Alternative Learning System (ALS) Coordinator.
The radio guesting focuses on the promotion and awareness of the 18-Day Campaign to End Violence Against Women and their Children (VAWC) which is the Philippines’ advocacy campaign to address issues on VAWC and annually observe various mechanisms to prevent this social problem which usually starts on November 25 to December 12 as mandated by Presidential Proclamation No. 1172 s. 2006.
Moreover, the salient points of the Safe Spaces Act were also discussed to promote awareness about the said law, both for the general public and the institutions that are mandated to implement the law.
TESDA Programs were also highlighted as the agency also takes it part in elevating the campaign to positive advocacy as it enjoins everyone to pursue the common vision of a community free from violence against women and girls, and highlights what can be done to achieve such through the provision of free technical education and skills development.
