Education, Information and Training Project PAFPI will embark a three-year campaign on HIV in partnership with local government and community. With the continuing increase of Filipinos getting infected with HIV (as reported by the Epidemiology Bureau of the Department of Health), PAFPI considers it an organizational mission to contribute to national HIV/AIDS-response through education and awareness campaign for vulnerable populations (such as departing overseas Filipino workers [PDOS], community, schools, workplaces) in order to promote behavioral change and lessening negative impacts including stigma and discrimination. Psychosocial services like counseling and referral to partner-agencies are routinely done. A significant component of PAFPI’s education campaign is drug-adherence. Some treatment-naïve clients often do not obtain appropriate pre- and post-test counseling especially from diagnostic centers, and thus fail to understand or appreciate the importance of adherence to ARV-regimen (the primary goal of the Anti-Retroviral Treatment (ART) is to prevent HIV related morbidity and mortality). Others stop taking meds simply because of lack of means to go to treatment institutions or hubs; still more do not have the wherewithal to pay PhilHealth insurance premiums. Poor adherence leads to immune deterioration, and a damaged immune-system in turn makes it hard for the body to fight infections and certain cancers. It also increases risks of drug-resistance and HIV treatment failure. Another part of incidental dissemination of information is to correct PLHIV-clients’ notions about nutrition, as this is an area often neglected in hospital environments. Not eating the right kind of food often results to fatigue, appetite loss, diminutions in senses of smell or taste, nausea, vomiting, infections or other problems of the mouth or throat. 0% Funded 1 Cash goal 20 Computers for Center of Hope The Center of Hope is a long-term shelter facility, duly licensed and accredited by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).It is being run by Visayan Forum Foundation, managed by a multi-disciplinary team with an existing system of protection and with a rights-based approach. Parallel to protective services and psychosocial intervention, Visayan Forum also provides institutionalized alternative skills training for victims while pursuing their cases; such as training packages intended to prepare the survivors for eventual reintegration including a formal educational program and non-formal training for alternative sources of income. In 2017, we would like to improve the quality of education by introducing computer studies. Increasing the survivors computer literacy will prepare them for job opportunities especially today wherein more and more industries are moving digital and require such skills. In addition, their knowledege about IT will protect them from being vulnerable to online trafficking. ABOUTThe Philippines is a source country for men, women, and children subjected to sex trafficking and forced labor. 401,000 Filipinos are presently enslaved according to the report of Global Slavery Index of 2016.For 25 years, Visayan Forum has been innovating solutions to end human trafficking and modern slavery in the Philippines.

PIF hosts the Aral Pinoy Project Baon and allows people to donate online. Aral Pinoy is raising funds for a cause, a scholarship campaign for 20 Filipino graduating students both in high school and in college. They will graduate and earn their diplomas if not in 6 months, at least in a year, maybe by March or April 2017. Today we need for them Php 80,000 pesos, which is already for one school year schooling assistance of these 20 deserving students. At first level, Aral Pinoy needs to raise 80,000 pesos from at least 80 unique donors who would be sharing 1,000 pesos each, hopefully this can be raised within 30 days. At second level, once Aral Pinoy achieves this, it will make it easier to get more help from new generous donors and eventually help more students. One graduating student says: "My big dream is to be a certified public accountant and this project will fulfill my dream by supporting my schooling expenses. I will find a job right away after graduation to support my family." He wants to fly and the other 19 students too, all they need are us who will give them wings to let their hearts soar as high as they will!
