Recovered Treasures Home
Imagine opening up a treasure trove filled with gems polished and sparkling. You know that it was God and Nature who provided the raw material, but you also know none of these treasures would have shone as brightly had they not been picked out of the rough and lovingly polished. Every treasure took time and work to be molded into the best it can be.
Every child is a treasure.
But not every child springs from a corner of the earth that takes care to lovingly mold it. There are children who have been left in the rough, in dark places where no light can allow anyone to see how much they can sparkle. There are children who were never valued for what they are, even though they too are treasures.
These children—neglected, abandoned, abused, or devalued—are the treasures that we at Kalipay Negrense Foundation, Inc. aim to recover through our Kalipay home, Recovered Treasures.
Recovered Treasures sits on a vast 4.9 hectares of lush greenery and is surrounded by the peaceful scenery of thriving farmlands. It is a residential care facility intended for children aged four to 18 who are survivors of physical abuse, emotional and sexual abuse, abandonment, neglect, malnourishment, orphanhood, child trafficking, and child labor. There is a school inside Recovered Treasures. Educators are licensed professional teachers hired by the school’s administration. They are in-charge of the formal schooling of the children.
Recovered Treasures is run by a passionate, hard-working team of home manager, psychologist, social workers, home parents, and home staff who toil around the clock to ensure that the needs of the children are met. Security guards patrolling the facility offer added peace of mind. Recovered Treasures is more than just a care facility, it is also a venue for children to express themselves as well as showcase and develop their talents in sports and the arts.
