Lagoa ,  September 18, 2019

Awareness-raising actions for the dissemination of children's rights to be carried out throughout the Region, announces Andreia Cardoso

The Regional Secretary for Social Solidarity announced today in Lagoa the promotion of awareness-raising actions in all Azorean municipalities aimed at disseminating the Convention on the Rights of the Child, starting at the end of September.
Andreia Cardoso spoke at the opening ceremony of the new headquarters of the Commission for the Protection of Children and Youth (CPCJ) of Lagoa, where she stated that the meetings are aimed at target groups with direct intervention in the implementation of its principles: children and youth, parents, caregivers, family members and entities working with children and youth, especially in health and education.
With the implementation of these initiatives, "we intend to make communities aware of the children's rights," with special emphasis on their right to participate, involving the community in a decentralised perspective and taking into account responsibilities on prevention matters.
“The legislation determining the establishment of the CPCJ is based on the assumption that the involvement of a community should be safeguarded, i.e., the involvement of all actors in solving the problems that hinder the full and inclusive development of children,” stated the government official.
In this regard, the Regional Secretary highlighted the role of Lagoa City Council, “which values its Commission and has provided support over time, not only in terms of space and logistical support but also in terms of technical resources."
“Ensuring the development of a community is to safeguard the well-being and development of children. This has been the commitment taken by the Regional Government in partnership with Lagoa City Council and with all the partners involved in promoting this commission," stated the government official. 
Andreia Cardoso also stated that the creation of the Azores Commissioner's Office for Childhood has been “decisive for the improvement of our intervention, although the provision of training to CPCJ members and to all those working in areas of health and education, will remain a permanent and ongoing effort.”
