CANVAS and Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan later collaborated on an activity book about the rights of a child. An excerpt from CANVAS' website:
Though they may be young and small, children are intelligent, valuable, and able beings with dignity and inherent rights.
Karapat-dapat: Bata, alamin ang iyong mga karapatan! (Child, know your rights!) reminds us of this. Karapat-dapat is the latest children’s activity book of The Center for Art, New Ventures and Sustainable Development, in close collaboration with Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan (Ang INK) that celebrates children, at the same time informing them of their dignity and rights, even at a young age.  
The book was inspired by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, a human rights treaty which sets out the civil, political, economic, social, health, and cultural rights of children. It was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1989, and ratified by the Philippines a year later. It is the first legally binding international convention to affirm human rights for all children.
