Adopt A PNP - WCPD (Women and Children Protection Desk)
Provides a focal point for projects of Soroptimist clubs in the Philippines. Established in 1981, this project has contributed to the impetus for Soroptimist growth in the Philippines through service to women and girls in the barangay, the smallest unit of government in the country. A sound working relationship with local officials and barangay women fosters cooperation, facilitates logistic arrangements and ensures the success of projects benefitting women and girls in the community.
