WHAT WE DO
Kalipay Negrense Foundation, Inc, is a non-profit foundation working for the causes of disadvantaged children – the homeless, physically and sexually abused, malnourished, out of school and special children. The Kalipay Negrense Foundation, Inc. hopes to break the cycle of hopelessness in the children’s lives by introducing them to education, providing shelter, health care and counseling.
Recovered Treasures Home
Recovered Treasures Home is a residential care facility that caters to children ranging from ages four years old and above. The home is located in Bago City. The home staff team implements the basic components of residential care namely, home life, medical and dental, social services, and education.
Haven Home serves as the half-way home for the newly rescued children. This also serves as a home for Kalipay’s College kids studying in Bacolod City. Similar to Recovered Treasures, Haven Home also provides the fundamental components to assist every child with his or her specific needs.
Independent Living Program (ILP)
This program caters to Kalipay’s young adults, those who graduated from high school, now ready to proceed to higher education (Senior High or College). They are prepared for reintegration to the society and independent living.
Volunteers are seen as local and international partners in Kalipay’s vision of providing for the needs of disadvantaged children and protecting their rights. The services that they render create a good impact on the development of the children and they, in turn, are given unique, life- changing experiences.
Community Based Program
The thrust to help the poorest of the poor is part and parcel of Kalipay’s mission. This program empowers communities to create a sustainable and equitable solution to address their needs, using a participatory approach to community development.
Kalipay Learning Center
In August 2018, our Kalipay Children have adopted the Re-Entry Education Agenda for the Poor or REAP educational system in partnership with University of Santo Tomas – Angelicum College. REAP was created with the vision of helping those who are not able to utilize the traditional learning system. It caters to out of school youth and adults who are motivated towards completing their primary and secondary education.
