“Motherhood doesn’t really end. They tell me ‘You’re retired.’ But there’s no such thing as a retired mother. They call you retired here in SOS because your service has ended. But still, you are a mother.” -Mama Wilma, Retired Mother, SOS Children’s Villages in Manila.

Every good parent wants to be able to provide a good life for their children; make sure they eat healthily, help them finish their studies, and raise them to be good people.
But in the city of Calbayog, many families are struggling to make ends meet and provide a good life for their children. They face challenges such as finding stable employment and lacking the necessary skills for available jobs. These difficulties can lead to family breakdowns, leaving children without proper care.
In Calbayog, 300 families are working with us to build their capacity to care for their children. With their participation in SOS Children’s Villages’ family strengthening program (FSP), families changed their and their children's lives for the better.
