HALAL is a billion dollar industry. It doesn’t just proliferate in Muslim or Islamic countries but due to its nature it captures even the predominantly non-Muslim nations of the western world. And in an exclusive interview seen on this link: http://www.dzmjonline.net/dpk/dzmj-online-at-phil-embassy-in-kl/ the Philippine Government represented here in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia by the Hon. Ambassador Charles Jose is helping Filipino Companies and entrepreneurs comply with the strictest requirement to pass the Halal Accreditation to their product or company.
Sa Malaysia, ang mga Halal Certifiers ay ang Pamahalaan nila mismo habang sa Pilipinas ay napakarami at pawang buhat sa pribadong sector liban sa Department of Science and Technology Region 12 sa pangunguna ni Dr. Zenaida Laidan na bukod sa pagkakaroon ng Scientific Halal Laboratory sa Koronadal City, South Cotabato ay siya ring kinikilalalng Halal Certifier na buhat sa gobyerno ng Pilipinas.
Halal is defined as good and permissible. It doesn’t just appeal to Muslims but a vast majority of non-Muslims embraced Halal not just in food, cosmetics, medicine, pharmaceuticals etc., Halal is holistic and a vast majority of industries thrive having the halal certification marked on their products and enterprises. The Philippines though predominantly non-Muslim unlike Malaysia, encourage enterprises to be Halal certified in order to partake on the multibillion dollar booming market worldwide.///abdul malik bin ismail, +639333816694, firstname.lastname@example.org
ECCD Council, Save the Children launch Nurturing Care Framework, media packages for Filipino children
PASIG CITY, August 29, 2019 – In order to promote nurturing care for early childhood development and strengthen support among various sectors to invest on young children, the Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) Council — an attached agency of the Department of Education (DepEd) — in cooperation with Save the Children Philippines, launched the Nurturing Care Framework (NCF) and the ECCD Council Media Packages on August 20.
The launch aimed to provide an opportunity for stakeholders to work synergistically to deepen their understanding of the NCF and to bridge the gaps in integrated service delivery for children ages 0-4 by drawing experiences from successful programming in the communities.
The event also launched ECCD media packages including an animated video primer on Republic Act (RA) No. 10410 (Early Years Act of 2013), instructional videos on early childhood care and development, and an ECCD video primer.
Representing the DepEd Undersecretary for Curriculum and Instruction, Bureau of Learning Delivery (BLD) Supervising Education Program Specialist Jocelyn Tuguinayo highlighted the importance of the ECCD Council’s goals: “Guided by the ECCD Council’s targets, and by working together in implementing the multi-sectoral strategic plans from ECCD to Kinder and Grade 1 to 12 education services, we can assure to achieve our vision by the end of 2030 that no Filipino learners will be left behind.”
Dr. Teresita Inciong, Vice-Chairperson and Executive Director of the ECCD Council, underscored in her keynote address that providing positive learning environment and connection to a child influences his/her holistic development.
“Good health, adequate nutrition, responsive care-giving, security and safety, early learning and social protection are ECCD’s main components for nurturing care development for children. Investing in young children is investing in the country’s future generation,” Dr. Inciong pointed out.
Also present in the event are Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Assistant Secretary Marjorie Jalosjos; UNICEF Chief of Education Section Isy Faingold; Asia-Pacific Region Network Executive Director for Early Childhood Evelyn Santiago; National Nutrition Council OIC Executive Director, Dr. Azucena M. Dayanghirang; Save the Children Philippines; representatives from Sarangani province and Malabon City; and parents, teachers, and selected media outfits.
The event was likewise aimed at keeping with the global and national movement on holistic, multi-sectoral programming for young children and their respective families. The organizers and their partners deemed it fitting and timely to lay down the foundation of dialogue and partnership within the various sectors that support the Filipino families and children, and that key change makers and movers partake in this vision of a better future for the next generation.

Statement on the no-homework policy bills
PASIG CITY, August 28, 2019 – With its issuance of the “Guidelines on Giving Homework or Assignment to All Public Elementary School Pupils,” otherwise known as DepEd Memorandum No. 392, series 2010, the Department of Education (DepEd) reiterates its commitment to the holistic development of learners inside and outside the classroom.
The said issuance aims to enable learners to have more quality time with their parents, family, and friends by limiting the homework/assignment to a reasonable quantity on school days and by eliminating the same during weekends.
It is in this regard that the Department supports the no-homework policy proposed by legislators from the House of Representatives. By ensuring that they complete all assignments and projects in school, the no-homework policy enables our learners to find balance between their academic development and personal growth by having ample time for enjoyable activities with family.
The Department will further study the other provisions of the bills to determine the repercussions on the current teaching and learning process.
