What is Kalipay?

Kalipay Negrense Foundation Inc., is a non-profit foundation working for the causes of disadvantaged children – the homeless, physically and sexually abused, malnourished, out of school and special children. It hopes to break the cycle of hopelessness in the lives of disadvantaged children by providing shelter and food, health care and counseling and introducing them to education. The image of homeless, hopeless people who work and live on the streets is a familiar sight. Forced on the street by spirit – destroying poverty and family dysfunction – the ones who suffer the most are the children.

Kalipay Negrense Foundation Inc. was conceptualized by Ms. Anna C. Balcells and some friends in 2007 and was established as an urgent and concrete response to the growing number of abused and abandoned children in Negros Occidental.

Our Goal

No child should be on the streets,
No child should be hungry,
No child should be denied education and
No child should be subjected to violence

The Children We Help

Street Children
Victims of Child Trafficking
Victims of Child Labor
Sexually Abused
Physically Abused

We support all disadvantaged children regardless of their religion, gender, race or ethnicity.

Give LOVE this Christmas season...


Dear Friends and Partners,

Season's Greetings from the Kalipay children and staff!

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for the unbelievable support you have shown Kalipay this year. We currently have 84 children and I still can't believe that we have managed to make it this far, yet, there is still so much to do. There are still so many kids out there that need our help.

As we prepare for the most awaited time of the year, I would like to knock on your kind hearts and share with you our Kalipay Christmas Wishlist. Inasmuch as our kids would want to ask for toys, they need more than that. Kalipay provides what they need on a daily basis and these are the basics needed in any home: appliances, kitchenware, toiletries, medicines, school supplies and more.

You can also help us by sharing this WISHLIST with your friends and family. Link: http://www.kalipaynegrensefoundation.org/images/stories/kalipay-christmas-wishlist.pdf

For more details or inquiries, you may call us at +63 34 4352496 and +63 917 7002345.

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
