On October 11, 2013, the Children’s Legal Rights and Development Center (CLRDC) marked the celebration of the International Day of the Girl Child simultaneous with the celebration of the other neighboring Asian countries dubbed as “Asian Girl Campaign 2013”.  As CLRDC celebrates the significance of the said day, it vowed to renew its commitment to promote and protect the human rights of the girl child and affirm its devotion in building a better society for all children.

In its own noble cause, CLRDC observed the celebration of the said day by organizing a Poster-making contest with the theme:  “Towards Strengthening the Advocacy for a Free and Safe Environment for the Girl Child”. The said activity was held last October 11, 2013 at Quezon Memorial Circle. The Poster-making contest were joined in and participated by high school students from Cainta-based private school Roots of Learning Development Center and from members of CLRDC Support Group (composed of children survivors of abuse and violence).  The poster-making competition has two-level categories for children between the age of seven to eleven years old, and for children between twelve to sixteen years old.  Participating organizations and students were informed on the significance of the United Nations declaration the International Day of the Girl-child. Prior to the poster-making contest, CLRDC also organized on October 9 and 10, 2013 Asian Girl campaign activities such as slogan-making contest in Barangay Bagong Silang in Caloocan City, and a Discussion-seminar on Asian Girl Campaign to CLRDC’s partner youth organizations  such as Barangay Bagong Silang Children and Youth Organization (CAYO), Alliance of Peace and Unity for Youth in Caloocan City, and Children’s Legislative Advocacy Network (CLAN).
