CORE PILLARS OF BAYANIHAN
SOCIAL SERVICE ASSISTANCE
This service ranges from giving practical tips and advice on various issues to intensive guidance and counseling.
We provide emergency assistance to Filipinas who need and ask for immediate and direct help.
Our follow-up support activities ensure continuing guidance and assistance to those who are slowly building their lives after a crisis.
NETWORK & ADVOCACY
In general, we lobby Dutch government institutions, policy-making bodies, trade union federations, welfare and health institutions, the Philippine Embassy in the Netherlands and the Philippine government.
We provide referrals to the different Dutch institutions (e.g lawyers, municipal offices, social workers, shelters, police, etc.), and act as intermediary for the Filipina and the various institutions & individuals
RESEARCH & INFO DISSEMINATION
This includes but not limited to works such as conducting research and surveys on issues concerning Filipinas in the Netherlands and dissemination of important information relevant to living in the Netherlands, especially on matters pertaining to relevant Dutch laws and institutions.
We conduct different kinds of workshops, training sessions, awareness-raising and information seminars on various topics and issues that are important for the development and integration of the Filipinas in the Netherlands.
In general, our empowerment programme is informed by a preventive approach to addressing the problems and concerns of the Filipinas.
With no current financial structural help from the Dutch government, Bayanihan has to come up with creative ways in order to continue the organization’s valuable work. Any help in cash or in kind is greatly appreciated.
You may send your donations to Stichting Bayanihan’s bank account NL 77 INGB 0006 172781.
