Palawan: launch of new forms of support to the residential center for abused girls

The Center today

Year after year the number of abused children on the island of Palawan is increasing and today local social services have more ways to take them all over.
Alouette Foundation supports them since 2007 with the opening of the Residential Center for girls located Luzviminda, one of the "barangay" of Puerto Princesa City.
Today, 8 girls living in the Center and are supported by two house mothers and a social worker who guarantee them a stable environment in everyday life and protector. This work allows them to gradually overcome their trauma.
All girls are enrolled in public school in Luzviminda and receive tutoring ever day after school during 1h30.
In addition, they receive a social care, psychological and legal until their reinstatement.
In the Center, the girls take part in everyday life by participating in household chores, maintenance of the garden and cooking. Manual activities are also organized on weekends and during school holiday. They are accountable through the manufacture of ice and the sale of garden produce.

The creation of the Centre of Palawan is a success ; it's now necessary to sustain it, thus ensuring the security, well-being, health and the education of these young girls.
