The Dolores Aboitiz Children’s Fund of the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI-DACF), in partnership with the Local Government Unit of Argao, turns over a Child Development Center (previously Day Care Center) in Barangay Casay in the Municipality of Argao.
The Child Development Center project was initiated after a study conducted by the RAFI-DACF Team last 2010 in the Province of Cebu and saw a need to construct a child-friendly environment since most of the Child Development Centers in Cebu are either dilapidated or need repair.
