Big changes are happening in the Philippines! Starting in August 2015, we are introducing a new agency to our Philippines operations: Children International – Bicol. (It’s pronounced BEE-col. We call it CIB, for short.)
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.
Have kids in Manila or Quezon City? No need to worry! This change won’t impact operations in those areas.
