As advocates against child sexual abuse and abandonment, we visit our babies and girls six times a week to ensure that they get the love and care they deserve. By preparing structured activities, we aid in their psychosocial development, which fosters their growth and healing. Aside from this, Tugon also executes several campaigns in and outside of the Ateneo to spread awareness on child abuse and abandonment to prevent its occurrence and to encourage proactivity in the issue.

The pinwheel, Tugon’s icon, symbolizes change or “turning one’s luck around.” As we share time, love, and hope with our girls and babies, we aim to bring about change in their lives. Despite the adversities they have faced in the past, the pinwheel serves as a reminder that everyone deserves a happy childhood and a life free from harm.

Here in Tugon, we work hand in hand towards fighting for a country free from child sexual abuse and abandonment.


To be at the forefront of the transformation towards a country free from child abuse and abandonment and an icon that serves a constant reminder of our purpose.


Tugon advocates against the existence of child sexual abuse and abandonment in the country. We organize activities that suit the developmental needs of the children and foster the recovery and growth of the survivors. By raising awareness, we engage and empower the community in the prevention of these realities.
