“Protecting and Fulfilling the Rights of the Child in the Light of Faith”



  • We, the SPCC, are a group of Salvatorian Sisters and committed lay partners inspired by the founders of the Sisters of the Divine Savior.
  • We believe that children have rights and as such, promotion of children’s rights is integral to the SDS mission. Children are our future.
  • We believe in the inherent capacity of the local communities/parishes to protect the rights of the child. The Church, by virtue of its mandate from the people, assumes great responsibility in upholding the well-being and the future of the children. Thus, the major challenge is to build child-friendly parishes.
  • We believe, also, in the capacity of children to uphold and protect their rights.
  • We believe that participatory approaches will lead to empowerment of the people.


  • To facilitate the development of a child-friendly parish thru community–based interventions and strategies in child protection which consider the Filipino culture and the context of poor communities.
  • To inspire and foster a caring and nurturing environment for children within the families and communities.
  • To minimize the risks involved (both short and long term) for children who are in need of special protection through ensuring adequate emergency, basic and social services.
