"TO BE STRONG, TO BELONG" Bukid Kabataan Center (BK), which means children’s farm in Filipino, is a special place for children who have been placed in foster care. Located in Sitio (sub-village) de Fuego, Barangay (village) San Francisco, General Trias, Cavite, a suburb of the Philippines, BKC is about two and a half hours’ drive from the city of Manila. Which opens up more access to jobs and opportunities for the ambitious members of BKC. As part of CPC's give-back program, we aim to make a positive change, working with organizations that align with our goals. We know that the well-being of a child's physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being is important. Despite their painful past, the team at BKC works with the children to enable them to thrive and succeed to become productive members of society. We were elated when the opportunity for us to support and work with the team and children of BKC was presented to us. We provided them with school supplies and art materials for the children to design their own vision boards and thank you cards “Pasasalamat ay alaala ng puso [Gratitude is the memory of the heart],” a popular saying from Sr. Mary Euphrasia, is now a line from a song that the children of BKC often sing. It goes with the heart-rending refrain, “Pamilyang nawala, dito namin natagpuan (The family that we lost, we have found here).” Their voices rise to a crescendo and their hearts cry out, “To be strong, to belong.”
