WYAAP, CFO to organize youth training against human trafficking


Last May 19, World Youth Alliance Asia Pacific (WYAAP) signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) for the conduct of THE GAME CHANGERS, a youth training against human trafficking, which will be held on August 14-16, 2015 in Tagaytay City, Philippines.

WYAAP was represented by Regional Director Lord Pomperada and Director of Operations Zarina San Jose while CFO was represented by Chairperson Imelda Nicolas and Executive Director Mary Grace Tirona.

Forty youth leaders from different provinces all over the Philippines will be selected to be part of the training.  It aims to educate the Filipino youth on the various aspects of trafficking in the country, and give them enough information and training to be able to create their own advocacy plans against human trafficking. The best proposals will receive financial support and guidance from CFO.

The training camp will be free of charge to all 40 participants. The organizers will provide accommodations, meals, and  roundtrip land transfers from Manila City to Tagaytay City and vice versa.

Delegate registration will open on the last week of May. You may visit www.wya.net for more details.
