Keywords: school-aged children, risk management, mitigation, disaster-risks, extension program


Existing and emerging disaster-risks for school-aged children served as the primary consideration for the conceptualization of this study. Using the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, this study analyzed the needs of the clientele, designed, and developed a DRRM extension program for school-aged children, and implemented and evaluated the program. The study involved school administrators, teachers, parents and their school-aged children in five landslide and earthquake-prone barangays in Bukidnon. Data were gathered through questionnaires, interviews, and FGDs. The needs were the basis for the design and development of the DRRM extension program for school- aged children. The training program included lessons on introduction to DRRM; DRRM in school, child-centered DRRM and CEPC, conduct of drill, and, managing emergencies and disasters.
