Balay Dalangpan sg Kabataan is a non-political, non-denominational charitable foundation established in the Philippines. Our goal is to provide love and support to Filipino children in need. Our primary aim is to provide a good, caring home to children who have no parents to take care of them due to the parents' illness or death, abandonment or abuse. Our secondary aim is to help the disadvantaged children so that they are empowered to help themselves via our Educational support programs which are aimed at keeping the children in education and off the streets. We also aim to hold special events such as an Annual Christmas Party, A Family Day, etc., all designed to bring joy to children in identified depressed areas. For our primary aim, we have identified a need for a shelter in Bacolod to temporarily house children who have been subjected to abuse until such time as the authorities are able to return the children to their natural families or place them with caring families through foster care or adoption.Our first home will take up to 12 to 72 children but hopefully we will go on to provide homes for lots more children in the future. Please browse through our website, but most importantly look at the ways you can help us through donating, volunteering or fundraising. The founding members and our volunteers give their time and resources completely free of charge, and therefore you can be assured that every cent, peso or penny you donate goes towards the care of children in need, and not on administrative costs. Please see 'Our Operating Principles' page for more details on how your money is used. Here’s a few simple statistics to show you why we are doing this in the Philippines.
  • 1 out of 20 Filipino children is orphaned or completely abandoned.
  • Around 6 million children under the age of 5, die of hunger each year
  • 3 out of 10 Filipino households have a child working to feed their families.
These are shocking numbers. Please help us to make a difference by giving a few of those children a home, some love and a chance to build their life.
