The Virlanie Foundation is a non-government organization reaching out and giving-not only shelter in the form of physical structures- but also love, support, education and care to abandoned, abused, exploited, neglected, orphaned and poor children like those kids from my school. Since 1992, Virlanie has been empowering and extending developmental services to Filipino children, allowing them to become self-reliant, productive and independent citizens through its 12 different homes and 13 programs. Apart from food, shelter and clothing, Virlanie provides them with opportunities to study, find ways to re-unite them with their families (when parents become capable of caring for their children), and gives them psychological support and counseling, and assistance with their legal cases. To date, Virlanie has helped 13,500 children become self-sufficient and responsible adults.
