Welcome Sponsorship's Newest Edition: Bicol

Date: 08/01/2015

Big changes are happening in the Philippines! Starting in August 2015, we are introducing a new agency to our Philippines operations: Children International – Bicol. 

Children International – Bicol will replace the Tabaco and Legazpi agencies that currently operate in the Albay province of the Philippines. While the change will consolidate our administration, it will have little to no effect on sponsored children in the area.

Sponsored children will continue to use the same community centers, see the same friendly volunteers and – most importantly – have access to the same great benefits and programs made available through your support. The only functional difference for families is that our organization will have a different name.

So, why are we consolidating Legazpi and Tabaco into one agency? Efficiency and cost-savings.

One administrative office will help us better manage staff, benefits and programs.

It will be easier for sponsors to visit their children in the region – one stop instead of two!

We’ll save money – money you generously provide – on administrative costs, electricity, security and all those expenses associated with having two offices.

Have kids in Manila or Quezon City? No need to worry! This change won’t impact operations in those areas.
