We are lucky enough to have sister organizations in different countries that work with us to advocate for children's rights and also help raise money to support our programs and services. Bahay Tuluyan currently has two sister organisations: Bahay Tuluyan Australia and Bahay Tuluyan Sweden.
Bahay Tuluyan Australia
Bahay Tuluyan Philippines Australia (BTPA) was established in 2004 by a group of friends and former volunteers of Bahay Tuluyan including Melissa Rudd, Cameron McLennan, Phoebe Hardefeldt, Clare Scerri and Belinda James. The organization is an incorporated association in Victoria, Australia.
BTPA’s objectives are to advocate for and promote awareness of the respect, fulfillment and protection of children's rights in partnership with Bahay Tuluyan. BTPA also aims to provide materials, technical and financial support to Bahay Tuluyan for its programs and services.
The main activities of BTPA are to:
- Advocate and educate about children's rights, particularly through their annual KidsView advocacy tour;
- Promote Bahay Tuluyan's programs and services, particularly through information sessions and dissemination of newsletters;
- Facilitate the placement of volunteers with Bahay Tuluyan; and
- Fundraise to support Bahay Tuluyan.
BTPA is run entirely by volunteers. It does not provide direct services to children.
Bahay Tuluyan Sweden
Bahay Tuluyan Sweden was established in 2005 by a group of former volunteers of Bahay Tuluyan including Beata Ulfsdotter, Michaela Garberg, Lisa Greger, Katrin Lilius and Karolina Rönngren. The organization is registered under Swedish law.
BT Sweden’s mission is to financially support Bahay Tuluyan's work for children in need of special protection in the Philippines.
The main activities of BT Sweden are:
