Si Biboy, si Ging-Ging, at ang Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act
Si Biboy, si Ging-Ging, at ang Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act is a series of five primers that tell the story of two children named Biboy and Ging-Ging who were caught stealing from the store of Mang Gusting. Discussions on the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act (JJWA), a law passed by the Philippine Government in 2006, will revolve around the story of the two children in conflict with the law (CICL). The primers aim to make certain pertinent provisions of the JJWA more understandable to lay persons, particularly CICL and people tasked to care for CICL. Written in Filipino and Cebuano, the primers are for children in conflict with law, parents, police, social workers, barangay officials, and anyone interested to gain a better understanding of the law. The Primers were published by Plan Philippines through the help of Psychosocial Support and Children’s Rights Resource Center.
