DOT to launch Child Safe Tourism program on Nov. 15
MANILA, Nov. 9 (PNA) -- Some 200 adults and children alike are expected to participate in a fun walk to show their commitment to promote the advocacy of protection and welfare of children in the tourism and travel industry.
The fun walk, slated on Sunday, is one of the highlights of the Child Safe Tourism Program under the Department of Tourism (DOT).
The walk will begin from the Bayanihan Park and Walking Street in Angeles City, Pampanga towards SM City Clark.
The program is a joint effort of the DOT, local government units (LGUs), and private sector groups which seeks to form the so-called Child-safe Tourism Network now posted on social media.
The same program has previously been launched in other tourist destinations including Boracay, Cebu, Bohol, and Puerto Princesa.
Expected to be tackled during the launch of the program is the symbolic presentation of the “7 Travel Tips” and signing of covenant on child safety.
Representatives from partner national government agencies, non-government institutions, academe, and stakeholders from the tourism and hotel sector are also expected to attend the event.
