2 FILIPINO NGOs PROTECTING KIDS GET INT'L AWARDS


DECEMBER 12 BahayTuluyan -Australia/ Stairway Foundation-Denmark
Two Filipino non-government organizations (NGOs) – Stairway Foundation and Bahay Tuluyan will receive the 2015 Stars Impact Award at the Philanthropreneurship Forum, “The New Frontiers of Philanthropy,” which will be held at the Palais des Congrès de Versailles, Paris, on December 12. This year, “Stars” is awarding 24 organizations from countries, ranging from Colombia to Iraq, for their work with disadvantaged children. As part of the prize package, each will receive US$50,000 of flexible funding and capacity-building support. Stairway Foundation works to protect the rights of children in the Philippines with particular focus on the issue of child sexual abuse and exploitation, particularly on Mindoro Island, a busy tourist destination where poverty has driven thousands of children and young people into trafficking. The organization runs a residential program for former street boys using art, theater, and other creative means as a tool for rehabilitation and empowerment. It provides residential facilities for former street boys, who undergo a year-long recovery process aimed at giving the life skills and support they need to end street life and remain off the streets. The second recipient, Bahay Tuluyan Foundation, provides emergency shelter, residential care services, and alternative education to hundreds of children who face homelessness, lack of education, malnutrition, physical, and sexual abuse. Bahay Tuluyan was set up in 1987 as a drop-in center for abused and exploited children in Manila’s red light district. It has since expanded its work to provide emergency shelter, residential care services, alternative education, and children’s rights awareness to hundreds of children and adults. Through its three program sites in Manila, Quezon province, and Laguna, Bahay Tuluyan has reached 8,905 children in 295 child-to-child education sessions in the past three years alone. Muna Wehbe, CEO of Stars Foundation, praised the awardees. “Once again this year’s Impact Award winners have demonstrated exceptional work in responding to the needs of children, and in the strength of their institutional and management practices.

ABOUT 'THE NEW FRONTIERS PHILANTROPHY'


The New Frontiers of Philanthropy Project (NFP) is a major initiative to broaden the base of knowledge and boost awareness about the new actors and tools surfacing in the leveraged philanthropy and social investing arenas. To do so, the project is producing comprehensive, objective new content examining the full range of these developments, brought to the widest possible audience through an aggressive dissemination and field broadening initiative. How is the project defining philanthropy?

We are defining philanthropy, broadly, as the mobilization of private resources towards social and environmental objectives. This framing includes traditional grant-making but also the larger world of social investing, including impact investing, microfinance, community development finance, and the new approaches to corporate social engagement. 

Why now?

Enormous social, economic, and environmental problems confront the world today, yet the resources of both governments and traditional philanthropy are barely growing or in decline.

It is increasingly clear that new models for financing social and environmental objectives are urgently needed. In response to this need, an enormous proliferation of new actors and tools is emerging on the frontiers of traditional philanthropy that could usher in a new phase of social purpose finance.

However, these new developments remain nascent and largely uncharted. For the new approaches to philanthropy and social investing to achieve the impact of which they are capable, they will need to make the jump to a broader network of participants.

How will New Frontiers help make this leap?

The project is designed to provide a clear and accessible roadmap to this emerging field—increasing its credence and traction, deepening understanding of its potential, and ultimately bringing this expanded knowledge to the attention of much larger audiences who can act on its message, including nonprofit managers, business leaders, corporate social responsibility officers, public policy experts, microfinance providers, social entrepreneurs, philanthropists, impact investors, CRA-motivated banks, private investors, accountants, investment advisors, bankers, insurance companies, pension funds, public officials, and community development finance institutions.

What outputs is the project pursuing?

1. The initial product of this project was the 2011 book Rethinking Corporate Social Engagement, which offers a new roadmap for advancing the interests of companies and the communities in which they operate.

2. The primary output for the project is a major book on the New Frontiers of Philanthropy, which provides the first authoritative and comprehensive overview of these new actors and tools—deepening the knowledge base from which to inform, educate, and train. This volume, published in June 2014 by Oxford University Press is available from Amazon and oup.com. In addition, a shorter volume carrying the introduction and overview chapter by Center Director Lester Salamon is available in hardback, paperback, and Kindle editions at Amazon and oup.com.

3. Finally, an aggressive field-broadening initiative will bring the material in this book to a wide audience in easily accessible, understandable formats, presentations, and training sessions. In the process, the new content and broader framework produced by this project will reinforce efforts in the impact investment, community development, social entrepreneurship, philanthropic, and academic fields, significantly enhancing the capacity to mobilize private resources in support of social and environmental objectives.

What we aim to accomplish

The overall goal of this project is to improve our ability to address the world’s growing social, economic, and environmental problems by increasing the resources available to the social entrepreneurs effectively coping with them. To do so, the project will broaden and strengthen the field of leveraged philanthropy and social investment that is tapping new sources of social finance. More specifically, the project will:

•Bring greater coherence to the field, helping its pioneers represent their innovations more effectively to each other and to philanthropists, social investors, and capital market players globally in order to bring new developments fully into the mainstream. Boost the profile of these new actors and tools among key stakeholders, including public policymakers, the media, investment advisors, investors, and the general public.

•Identify policy changes needed to lower barriers to utilizing these new tools and increase incentives for their operation.

•Enhance the knowledge base and legitimacy of the field by producing an authoritative, analytical volume, produced at a respected academic institution and distributed by a well-known publisher.

•Build a community of knowledge by creating an information platform for signaling new innovations as they emerge.

•Introduce this next generation of ideas to the next generation of social purpose leaders by creating high-quality teaching materials for students of business, nonprofit management, and public policy.

A POPULAR HEALTH TIP: If You Drink Warm Water With Lemon For A Year Here Is What Will Happen March 19, 2015 By Angica Dumova-Author of 'House Of Health'

It is becoming clear that lemon does not only decrease thirst but also takes care of the body in general. The effects it provides are simply amazing.House of (5)

From the moment we wake up our body tissues require immediate hydration to renew their cells and just refresh.

Controls the pH Balance

Lemons are typical alkaline foods. Despite their acidic properties, when consumed, they behave as alkaline.

Helps Digestion

Gastrointestinal tract and peristalsis, the waves of the muscle contractions inside the intestinal walls that move things around, can be immensely stimulated by warm lemon water. The digestive tract can easily defend itself from toxins and destroy them when lemons are part of our everyday nutrition.

Clears Skin

Blemishes and wrinkles can be induced by regularly consuming vitamin C. Blood toxins, which are also harmful for the skin, can be cleared by drinking lemon water on a daily basis.

Empowers the Immune System

Colds are very easily treated by taking vitamin C. Since lemons are full of potassium, the brain gets stimulated and the nerve function improves. Potassium also has a task of regulating the blood pressure.

Aside from this, it has strong anti-inflammatory properties, and has a key role in fighting asthma and several other respiratory diseases. In addition, it initiates the iron absorption in the body; the iron is known to be extremely important for the immune function.

•Supplies the body with electrolytes that help the body hydrate
•Reduces the joint and muscle pain It is more effective than food in producing enzymes •Modulates the blood pressure Provides cancer protection
•Controls the weight loss
•Enables dissolving of gallstones, kidney stones, pancreatic stones, and calcium deposits •Helps to relieve heartburn
•Dilutes uric acid, which if built up, may cause joint pain
•Promotes healing. It enables the skin to recover from scar tissues and blemishes.

Also, it protects the bones the body tissues and cartilages. Despite the fact that lemons are extraordinary beneficial for the body, it is recommendable to dilute in water; another reason for this is because the water-lemon duo provides additional beneficial characteristics to the body. Combine half a cup of warm water and one half of lemon’s juice and enjoy.

The best way to consume this is early in the morning before any meal.

Keep the lemon water bottle on your nightstand and this will become your routine in no time.
