As Proclaimed by United Nations General Assembly resolution 1386 (XIV) of 20 November 1959, The DECLARATION OF THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD;

Principle 7 states;

The child is entitled to receive education, which shall be free and compulsory, at least in the elementary stages. He shall be given an education which will promote his general culture and enable him, on a basis of equal opportunity, to develop his abilities, his individual judgement, and his sense of moral and social responsibility, and to become a useful member of society. The best interests of the child shall be the guiding principle of those responsible for his education and guidance; that responsibility lies in the first place with his parents. The child shall have full opportunity for play and recreation, which should be directed to the same purposes as education; society and the public authorities shall endeavor to promote the enjoyment of this right.

Verdict: VIOLATED, The picture tells all.


  1. That is a sad story and the photo is so poignant. No words can ever express the sadness that I feel for the not-educated children in PI.

  2. I enjoy so much the views and comments from my fellow bloggers from the Philippines as this is my only chance to see your wonderful, beautiful country and people. This is a most excellent blog!

  3. Aww, poor kids. I hope the barangay decides to fix or replace them soon.

  4. I hope somebody with a good heart could fix this up!..

  5. dala ng kahirapan minsan hindi na nakakayang papag aralin ng mga magulang ang kanilang anak..ewan kung sa ngayon ay tama pa ang salita na ANG KABATAAN ANG PAG ASA NG KINABUKASAN..

  6. I believe in the Youth! But in our time right now, I really really hope that we should be motivated into oneness. Helping each other build up our nation for the better. Set aside personal interests and promote the common good. Imagine if we all think like this? We just don't help other people, they do give a hand for us :D

    PS I hope somebody fixes this ASAP! Thank you so much for Linking Cavite Daily Photo! It means so much :D

    Mabuhay! God Bless You and Davao!


  7. Poor kids. Was this shot at a school?

    Lots of love,
