A Marist organisation helps integrate children back into society



The Marcellin Foundation helps give children a better future

01/03/2017: Philippines

A Marist organisation in General Santos City, Philippines, is helping children living in poverty and in conflict with the law to integrate back into society and obtain a better lifestyle.

“The ultimate aim is to integrate these kids into a more permanent home structure where their self-worth and self-respect are enhanced, and with the larger objective of transforming them into productive members of society,” affirmed Brother Karl Angelo Labio, one of its members.

“The Marcellin Foundation is indeed the fruit of the Holy Spirit working in the process as it develops and progresses through the years,” he added. “The ideals of Marcellin Champagnat in educating children about the Good News have also inspired Brother Crispin Betita to incarnate Marcellin’s dream of evangelization.”

The Marcellin Foundation, which marked its twenty-sixth anniversary on Jan. 29, also provides shelter, education and job placements.

During its anniversary, it inaugurated and blessed a new school, the Yamaha Training School, sponsored by the Yamaha Corporation.

A Brother involved in the work, Brother Dominador Santiago, noted that “the success of this foundation is not merely on the material things received, but on the number of lives touched by this Institution.”

“Many children have been helped to achieve their dreams and accept the goodness of the Lord in their lives,” he continued.
