Commentary: Children as victims and fighters

For months now, I have been part of a team preoccupied with a project aiming to give cultural and creative workshops in a disaster-prone, mining community. Enabled by the support and funding of TUKLAS Innovation Labs along with international bodies, the project is being implemented in Loacan, Itogon. As far as I know, of the ten projects in Northern Luzon, this project by Dap-ayan ti Kultura Iti Kordilyera (DKK) is one of the two innovations which have a greater focus on children and the youth. The other project, being implemented by Plot and Play, aims to use board games as educational tools for Disaster Response and Risk Management (DRRM).
