  • Organisation

    Bidlisiw Foundation, Inc. is a social development agency operating for 28 years now. Being a community-based agency, the Foundation developed its programs and services as well as the methodologies tailored fit to the needs of children in need of special protection (CNSP) and their families. Bidlisiw’s Child and Family Healing Recovery and Reintegration (CFHRR) Framework of Intervention is an innovation and is now being recognised by various agencies for best practice. In the locality, only Bidlisiw provides community based therapeutic interventions and reintegration services aside from the Social Welfare Office whose capacity is limited due to few number of social workers, and oftentimes the psychologists are hired as retainers or on calls. Bidlisiw also implements advocacy work, organises special events to raise awareness, participates in local governance through the special bodies to lobby on issues affecting children as well as other gender related advocacies.

    • Project

      This 2-year project of Bidlisiw Foundation is a pilot to test a Community Based Recovery Program for Children Drug Users and Surrenderees in Mandaue City. It responds to the strong campaign of the current Philippine administration against drug abuse and prevention, and the situation of the local government unit being continuously confronted with drug surrenderees among whom are children or individuals below 18 years of age. The project makes use of a community-based relapse prevention program called AKAP Modelor Abot Kamay Alang’alang sa Pagbabagong Buhay Program, which was developed by another organisation. This model, however, was not tested on children drug users, thus Bidlisiw integrates modifications from its own experience in implementing the Child & Family Healing, Recovery and Reintegration (CFHRR) program.

      Aside from a session-based approach, the project also integrates the family development work – an existing approach used by Bidlisiw in its work with families of children in need of special protection. This method includes development of family-based action plans, home visitations for follow-up and referrals to other agencies for access to basic services vital for their overall functioning as a family. Lessons from this project are expected to be shared with various stakeholders through round table discussions, paving the way to the formulation of new policies in Mandaue City.
