Inside the Bayanihan-Habitat Village in Talisay City, Negros Occidental

One of the newest project area of the Haligi ng Bata, Incorporated (HBI) is the Bayanihan-Habitat Homes in Talisay City, Negros Occidental. Located in the hinterlands of Barangay Concepcion, the area is a housing project of Habitat for Humanity, Negros Occidental for the poorest Negros Occidental families. The houses and all village facilities like a basketball court and an elementary school were constructed with the help of the STIHO Group of the Netherlands. The community is abundant in planting fields where sugarcane and fruits are planted and harvested.

Once the village’s construction was finished, a group of Dutch volunteers decided to aid the poor families of Bayanihan-Habitat through education, health and livelihood support. These Dutch volunteers are collectively known as the Dutch Help-Parents. They asked for the assistance of HBI in implementing their programs for the children and their families. Through this, a Group Sponsorship Program for over a 100 Bayanihan-Habitat Village families continues to be implemented.
