CRIBS Foundation was established in 1974 to provide temporary care to dependent, neglected, abandoned and surrendered infants, and abused and exploited children. It was the first organisation to implement foster care in Manila and has since expanded to provide rehabilitation services to sexually abused children. CRIBS provides immediate support to the children it accommodates while advocating for child rights on a community level. Through its programmes and services, CRIBS offers an alternative home environment through residential care facilities for abandoned or neglected children up to four years of age and girl survivors of sexual abuse ages 7-17. It also facilitates the placement of children within family care, addresses the healing and recovery of sexually abused girls, helps reintegrate girls with their families and provides education and information for the promotion of women’s and children’s rights.
