The #BagoTayo Network is a coalition of organizations focused on the welfare and empowerment of the children and young people. It started on October 10-11, 2018 when the Galing Pook Foundation and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), in collaboration with the National Youth Commission (NYC), convened the Youth in Governance Summit. The Summit was participated in by members and officials of the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Councils all over the country and local as well as national youth development organizations (YDOs).
Among the resolutions of the Summit was to create the #BagoTayo Network that will provide support to the SK and the YDOs in their endeavor to participate in local governance, and develop and implement innovative programs for the children and youth sectors.
The first major activity of the #BagoTayo Network is the conduct of the Strengthening the Children and Youth Participation in Governance – a project implemented by Galing Pook with the support of the Positive Youth Development Network (PYDN), the SIKLAB Pilipinas, SUGPAT, the Youth Peer Educators Network – Pilipinas (YPEER-Pilipinas), the Youth for Mental Health Coalition (Y4MH) and the NYC.
The project was funded by UNICEF.
