Project Report | Dec 7, 2016
Constuction of shelter for sexually abused girls

By Matiada Ngalikpima | partnerships manager

Opening a new center in the island of Negros is a dream for many of us since many of the girls who are under the care of Cameleon which is based on Panay island come from this neighboring island. Junavie, one of our beneficiaries was with the Executive Director to meet the governor of the province of Negros and convince him of the importance to have a center in his island for the girls coming there. She insisted on the need for the girls to be able to see their family while undergoing the rehabilitation program and also the difficulties of attending to court hearings in Negros when you study in Iloilo. The travel time is a hindrance to schooling. The Governor asked her about her background and was impressed by her courage and her achievement since she is a college student right now.

Junavie was also there during the official signature of the agreement wherein the Province gave a land to CAMELEON on may 2016, peeping over the shoulder of the executive director!

The municipality of Talisay was also consulted and the newly elected mayor expressed his strong support to our project. Right now some renegociations are going on to move our center a few meters away because it is overlapping a running track that the municipality wants to preserve. The mayor is very supportive to all sport and recreational activities for the youth. He is very interested by circus and impatient to see our girls performing in his City.

In the meantime, the plans of this new center were drafted with an architect who will supervise the construction works in Negros. The biddings are ongoing to find the best contractors. The construction works should start by January 2017. Hoping that with the support of all those who trust CAMELEON and who wants restore the dignity of young girls victim of sexual abuse, this center will open in November 2017 to give a second life to victims.
