Start of the preparations for the 2017 accreditations
The MARIPHIL Childrens Village pursues high quality standard of childcare. A central milestone to reach those goals is the license accreditation audit conducted by the DSWD (Department for Social Welfare and Development). Since the Childrens Village reached Level 1 (basic accreditation over three years) during the first accreditation round in August 2013, the next audit is due in January 2017 and our goal this time, is to reach Level 2 for a four year license. The Management of the village has decided to start to preparation process for renewal as early as possible to guarantee a positive outcome. Therefore Director Shyanne Halub went to the premises of the sub department ABSNET (Area Based Standards Network) in Davao City to collect information about the latest requirements set by the department. In addition to the normal accreditation, the village also seeks to build the capacity to process international and local adoptions. So let’s get started!
