Kalipay: a journey to hope

Learn about the reality of many children in the Philippines

Kalipay is not just a foundation that works on the islands of Negros, one of the areas with the highest rate of child poverty in the Philippines, but is also a refuge, a home where many children are recovering from child labor exploitation, family abandonment, prostitution and sexual violence they have experienced on the streets. In Tagalog, Kalipay means happiness.

This first exhibition, which inaugurates the social exhibition space set up in the lobby of the MAPFRE Tower, plunges us into life on the streets in the Philippines to get a closer insight into the life experiences of the children of Kalipay.

The aim of this exhibition is to provoke, to share emotions and to arouse feelings. The layout is planned to open visitors’ eyes to the reality of life for many children in the Philippines, accompanying them on a journey to hope: from a life of violence and abandonment on the streets to the warmth and safety of their new home, Kalipay.

As well as targeting your feelings, this exhibition also encourages you to share. You can help to rescue these children from misery, violence and sexual abuse by taking part in the Kalipay project.
