Based in the Philippines, the Virlanie Foundation was founded in 1992 by Dominique Lemay and his Filipino social worker friends. Virlanie is a non-governmental organization working with street children in Manila. It takes care of children in need of special protection; those who have been abandoned, abused, exploited, neglected, the orphans and the poorest of the poorest. Through its various programs and thanks to its family atmosphere, the Foundation provides daily support to its many beneficiaries by offering them the opportunity for personal development and reintegration into social life. Virlanie strives to build a better future for these children by giving them a smile.
