Our team

Permanent team

 

The management is ensured through an Executive Board and a local permanent team which is looking after over 400 children, by providing them safety, care and education.

The mission of the 40 employees based on Panay Island (Iloilo – Passi) is to facilitate the personal reconstruction and the reintegration into the society of the young girls and to ensure that the activities and the programs run smoothly for all the beneficiaries. The Management particularly ensures the professionalization of the Filipino team for the implementation, the follow-up and the evaluation of the projects.
To ensure the quality of the supervision and the support to the beneficiaries, the Management targets the accountability and the loyalty of the team and relies on the continuous professional training.

Under the Executive Director’s supervision – Heide Foulc, French-Filipino – each Project Manager implements the actions defined with the support of the social workers, the liaison officers with the village communities, the housemothers and the psychologists.

In order to meet the specific needs of the beneficiaries, the association regularly uses the services of other professionals: lawyers, psychiatrists, psychologists and doctors, etc.

CAI was given the status of “public interest association” in March 2013 by the Philippine Council for NGO Certification: it allows the association to publish its tax receipts. This certification strengthens the credibility of the association and increases interest among partners and Filipino donors.
