The Department of Tourism (DOT)-10 will once again hold an educational tour for the street children and child laborers on December 12 in the top tourism destinations of Cagayan de Oro City.
Charlita Ladera, DOT-10 focal person on child trafficking/child labor committee said that the educational tour has been done for the last two years as part of the agency’s contribution as member of Child Trafficking/Human Trafficking, Child Labor and HIV-AIDS Council and as partner in the advocacy of community education against child trafficking.
Ladera said that the tour is set on the date which is declared as Day Against Child Trafficking in the country with the theme "Uphold and Protect the Rights and Dignity of the Trafficked Child."
She pointed out that through the activity, the children will be given opportunity to see the beauty of the different tourist spots in the city and it will be an early Christmas party for them.
The children will start the day with a mass at San Agustin Cathedral then proceed to Mapawa Nature Park for some activities then to Gardens of Malasag Eco-Tourism for swimming, lunch and gift giving.
