ORGANIZATION/ COMMUNITY
CONTEXT

BPCFI establishes, maintains, and operates as agency primarily for the
marginalized and less privileged families of Mabolo, Cebu City. For the
past several years, members and families of BPCFI have grown in
numbers. Some migrated to different places in Cebu, while the houses
of some of the families were demolished and thus they were forced to
transfer to other places. In spite of these obstacles, the relationship
between these families and BPCFI stood firm through communication,
especially through home and school visitation.
At the start, BPCFI operated in the sitios and barangays of Cebu City,
specifically Barangay Mabolo. As the years went by, its work spread to
different municipalities of Cebu and the different islands of the
Visayas region. However, the bulk of its beneficiaries still come from
Mabolo.
The beneficiaries of BPCFI are mainly children and youth from age 3 to
24 belonging to underprivileged and under-served communities and
families. These children and youth are part of the BPCFI Educational
Programs, and about 85 percent are given support through the

Support at a Distance Program (SAAD).
In recent years BPCFI expanded its services to cater to a wider range
of clientele that covers not only those children and youth who are
part of the SAAD Program. BPCFI, through its services, reached out to
the parents of the children and youth and their communities,
providing some health services and skills training services.
