Outreach Programs

Helping out disadvantage children goes hand in hand with assisting their family.

Virlanie Foundation reaches out to children and families living in the streets and in the poorest areas of Metro Manila, such as for example those who used to live on the municipal garbage dump in Payatas, Quezon City. The Foundation also has a program in Pampanga, north of Manila, where it supports children and families victim of toxic waste.

Its outreach activities touch 800 street children annually. Virlanie plans to reach out to more poor and disadvantaged children every year.

Balik Probinsiya

Virlanie encourages families to relocate from the streets of the capital to the provinces, through the Balik Probinsiya Project (Back to the Province). This project assists families to start anew by giving them a little capital for livelihood and financial assistance for the education of their children.

Children’s Legal Rights Office

The program was established to protect the rights of the Children in Conflict with the Law through provision of free legal assistance and other measures to rehabilitate the children.

Family Program

Virlanie Foundation is present in the poor communities of Tondo, Singkamas and Estero in Manila, and Payatas in Quezon City, where the Family Program helps strengthen families and communities. It teaches parents how to take care of children and provide them with social services.

Mobile Unit

The Mobile Unit is an education and health-based program on wheels that operates in the Divisoria area in Manila. It promotes the social integration of street children by reaching out to them in the streets and by providing them with a complete support for education, health and nutrition.

Open Day Center

Open Day Center is located in a busy part of Quiapo, Manila. It serves children and their families living in the streets. It offers social services, health education, and livelihood training. The ODC team introduces children to a structured social and family life away from the streets. It is also a safe place where children and their families can stay during the day to cook their food, do their laundry, and take a bath.

Reception and Action Center

This program was set up to improve the living conditions of the children and families held in the Reception and Action Center in downtown Manila and to ensure that their rights are respected. It also provides recreational activities and social and health services to the children, adults and elderly.
