What is BuCor Love Foundation?
The BuCor Love Foundation Inc. (Philippines)
is your special non-stock, non-profit, non-political organization, duly registered with
the Philippines' Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC Reg. Cert. No. CN200917500),
composed of officials from the Bureau of Corrections and dedicated inmate leaders from
the various camps of the New Bilibid Prison, having one heart and one goal – "To provide
and impart to inmates who shall be released from prison – appropriate technical, livelihood,
management or entrepreneurial skills training that would match awaiting job placement
opportunities, and lessons on viable income-generating projects inclusive of the needed
capital to jump-start their own small-scale enterprise or industry; once they are
reintegrated back to the mainstream of society."
LOVE stands for Livelihood Opportunities: Volunteers for Ex-offenders.
This is in response to the call to “Reach Out and Give Second Chance, the Way to restore the Dignity of Inmates.” to address the short, medium and long-term concerns needed for this country to be at par with ASEAN neighbors, through concerted efforts from the public and private sectors.
The BuCor Love Foundation Inc. focuses on
two aspects - from the In-Care Reformation of INMATES, to the Aftercare Programs of
EX-OFFENDERS. It is only through GENUINE TRANSFORMATION that we can Make This Country
A Safer Place to Live.
