Family Week Celebration
September 24~30, 2012
The Family Week celebration aims to highlight the importance of families, enhance understanding of their functions and problems, and focus attention on the rights and responsibilities of all family members.
This was instituted by Presidential Proclamation No. 60 in 1992 by then President Fidel V. Ramos declaring the last full week of September every year as Family Week. The National Committee on the Filipino Family chaired by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) spearheads this celebration with partners from non-government organizations, government agencies, and the private sector.
