Overview

The Story

Child Safe Schools is a vital initiative focused on creating a safe and nurturing environment for children, free from abuse and harm. Through partnerships with Schools Division Offices, we aim to formulate comprehensive Child Protection Policies and Programs that prioritize the well-being of students. Join us in ensuring that schools become safe havens where children can thrive and reach their full potential.

According to the National Baseline Study on Violence Against Children, 2016, 8 out of 10 Filipino children experience some form of violence in their lifetime. This shocking reality emphasizes the urgency to address child welfare and protection within the school setting. Supporting Child Safe Schools creates a safe climate where children can grow, learn, and flourish without fear.

  1. Sustainable Funding: Your generous contributions will help sustain and expand our efforts, ensuring the continuity of essential programs and initiatives.
  2. Government Relations (SDO and Partner Communities): By fostering strong partnerships with government bodies and local communities, we can enhance the reach and impact of our child protection programs.
  3. Reaching the Children Demographics: We strive to ensure that all children, especially those in need, have access to the resources and support they require. Your support can help us reach a wider demographic and make a difference in their lives.

  6. Parenting with Love: We offer guidance and support to parents, helping them build healthy relationships with their children and create a loving and nurturing home environment.
