BACKGROUND OF THE ORGANIZATION
MARIPHIL Children’s Village, “Atong Pinuy-Anan” Inc. Is a non-profit/non-government institution for children in need of care and protection. It caters to children who survived different forms of abuse and maltreatment, neglect, abandonment, as well as children left in the streets.
OBJECTIVES & MISSION
We are always trying to act according to our ideals: Our main attention lies on the people in need of help. Their social, religious, and cultural background, age, gender, or skin color is of no importance to us when it comes to evaluating their need for help. We are intentionally trying to set an example for peaceful collaboration, for mutual respect of all the peoples of the world, of religions and of different cultures as well as for equal gender treatment in the world. Every full-time and honorary staff member of the Children’s Village has to act in accordance with the Accord of Children’s Rights (Nov. 20, 1989) in their daily interaction with the children in and around the Children’s Village. The aim of our Children’s Village is to prepare each of our fosterlings for a self-sufficient life. Depending on personal interests and talents the children are individually promoted and supported in their academic- and leisure-activities, such as school education and vocational training. Unattached to the ethnic and social origin, religious denomination, and gender they have the chance to sustain an autonomous, financially independent, and happy life for their families and themselves.
