CEAP-NCR launches “Huwag Kang Magnakaw” month


The Catholic Education Association of the Philippines National Capital region (CEAP-NCR) Advocacy Committee officially launched the “Huwag Kang Magnakaw” month at the Don Bosco Technical College in Mandaluyong City on September 7, 2018.

Rev. Fr. Atilano “Nonong” Fajardo, CM-Chairman of CEAP-NCR Advocacy Committee, said that the campaign is aimed at promoting and inculcating honesty, integrity, and generosity to the students.  According to him, it is also a way for the Catholic schools to fully participate in responding to the social issues our country is facing nowadays.

“Ngayong araw po ay nilo-launch ng CEAP-NCR Advocacy Commission na nagkataon ako din po ang head ito pong Huwag Kang Magnakaw Month, sinisimulan po natin sa lahat ng Eskwelahan yung initiative po for honesty, Integrity and Generosity para po nang sa ganun ang bawat eskwelahan po ay patuloy na magbigay ng kanilang mga pwedeng ipakita na ang Catholic School pala ay talagang bahagi nung pagbabago ng bayan…,”  Fr. Fajardo said in an interview by Radio Veritas.



However, Fr. Fajardo who is also the head of the Archdiocese of Manila Public Affairs Ministry pointed out that change must begin from within a person’s heart, by living out the slogan printed on the “Huwag Kang Magnakaw” shirt to help promote the campaign.

CEAP-NCR is consists of 173 member Catholic schools from the eight dioceses in the National Capital Region.

On December 16, 2014, the Catholic Church officially launched in the Philippines the “Huwag Kang Magnakaw” t-shirt drive that was taken from the Seventh Commandment, “Thou Shall not Steal”.

The campaign aims to show the Filipinos’ sentiments on the corruption in the government. (Reyn Letran/Radio Veritas and Jheng Manalang Prado/RCAM-AOC)
