KBF’s Family and Community Outreach Service uses social preparation, social mobilization, and volunteer resource development to organize the communities it serves. The importance of such organizing is to ensure collective participation and ownership of each project undertaken by the families and communities. Thus, the service encourages effective interaction among families and other social structures in the community in order to achieve its objectives (as stated below).
Rationale for the Service
KBF believes that families, if organized and empowered, can be instruments for community development and nation building. They must be helped to realize and appreciate their potentials, and to identify their needs and corresponding solutions or actions to address those needs based on available resources.
The 1986 Philippine Constitution, “Roles and Rights of People’s Organizations” mandates that the government shall respect, support and promote the rights of People’s Organizations.
Executive Order 548, “Minimum Basic Needs Approach in the Social Reform Agenda” encourages families to initiate and participate in community organizations to meet their primary requirements for survival.
