Preda Opens New Children’s Home

Inaug.ribbon cut

To kick-off the month-long celebration of National Children’s Month, the Preda Foundation inaugurated on November 7 a new and bigger children’s home which it called Victoria Children’s Home, a Preda Human and Social Development Trainign Center. Friends and supporters of Preda attended said event during which the Preda children and youth showcased their talents in singing, dancing and acting.

The Victoria Children’s Home can accommodate as much as 80 children and is an open and therapeutic center where the children receive comprehensive care and healing through the unique Emotional Expression Therapy and counseling, education and empowerment training and legal assistance in filing cases against the traffickers and abusers.

It is an open home. The children choose to stay and be healed. Children are referred for care and healing from trauma to the Victoria Children’s Home from all over Zambales, Central Luzon, Pangasinan and as far away as Metro Manila.

The Victoria Children’s Home as well as the community-based preventive education and child rescue projects is a response of Preda to the growing menace of child abuse, exploitation and trafficking. Recent statistics indicates that Philippines ranks fourth among nations with the most number of “prostituted” children. According to the DSWD, anywhere from 60,000 to 600,000 street children are victims of child prostitution. A study by the Psychological Trauma Program of the University of the Philippines notes that prostitution may now be the country’s fourth largest source of GNP (gross national product).
