Pambata Magazine was launched in 1979, the United Nations’ “International Year of the Child.” This marked the start of CFA’s successful venture into educational comics and magazine publishing for children. Originally a monthly, Pambata is now published 5 times a school year, starting with the June-July issue and ending with February-March.
Pambata has received several awards, including special citations from the Philippine Board on Books for Young People (1999) and the Catholic Mass Media Awards (2000).
