“The Search for the Outstanding VAW-Responsive Local Government Units is on”

The National Commission on the Role of Filipino Women (NCRFW) has launched the search for the Outstanding VAW-Responsive Local Government Units. The search is for any barangay, municipality or city within the Philippines that has a systematic, holistic and gender-sensitive approach to address VAW in the area of (1) policies, (2) programs, services and facilities, and (3) monitoring and client feedback.

The search aims to give credits to government officials who are really dedicated on their fight against violence on women. It also serves as an encouragement for other public servants to make a stand and do something to protect the rights of Filipino women.

Mayor James “Bong” Gordon is all-out in support of the campaign. “We have programs like Joint local Inter-Agency Council for Anti-trafficking and Violence against Women, Women’s Council and other programs that are created to support and protect women of our city”, Mayor said.

The screening period is on-going and the Awards day will be on November 25, 2009.

For inquiries, contact: The Outstanding VAW-Responsive LGU Awards Search Committee at tel. no (02)7358918/ (02)735-1654 ext. 109/128 or log on to www.ncrfw.gov.ph.
