What is Kalipay?

Kalipay Negrense Foundation Inc., is a non-profit foundation working for the causes of disadvantaged children – the homeless, physically and sexually abused, malnourished, out of school and special children. It hopes to break the cycle of hopelessness in the lives of disadvantaged children by providing shelter and food, health care and counseling and introducing them to education. The image of homeless, hopeless people who work and live on the streets is a familiar sight. Forced on the street by spirit – destroying poverty and family dysfunction – the ones who suffer the most are the children.

Kalipay Negrense Foundation Inc. was conceptualized by Ms. Anna C. Balcells and some friends in 2007 and was established as an urgent and concrete response to the growing number of abused and abandoned children in Negros Occidental.

Our Goal

No child should be on the streets,
No child should be hungry,
No child should be denied education and
No child should be subjected to violence

The Children We Help

Abandoned
Neglected
Malnourished
Street Children
Orphans
Victims of Child Trafficking
Victims of Child Labor
Sexually Abused
Physically Abused
Foundlings

We support all disadvantaged children regardless of their religion, gender, race or ethnicity.
