It is a home for
school-aged boys from Negros Oriental as well as other places in the
Visayas and Mindanao region of the Philippines. Most of the boys in
our care are either orphans, street children, or from extremely poor
At Casa Miani, the child's essential needs such as food, shelter,
medical & dental services and education are provided to them at
least until their family or a foster family is able to care for them.
Casa Miani-Arvedi is one of 5 Casa Miani orphanages in the Philippines
run by the Somascan
Fathers whose founder is St. Jerome Emiliani. Casa Miani-Arvedi
is the 4th orphanage to be built. In the year 2001, Mr. and Mrs. Giovanni
Arvedi arrived from Italy to donate the funds for the building and
construction began. In 2002, the first 15 children to live at Casa
Miani were accepted and since then, Casa Miani-Arvedi, has been thriving
and growing in many ways.
The house has a capacity of 40 children and the center is constantly
adapting to the needs of the boys. Every boy goes to school and all
the boys take part in daily and weekend activities at the center to
help in their overall positive development. Life skills, tutorials,
singing with the Vox Orphanorum Choir,
and religious formation and spirituality of the Catholic Faith are
some of our programs.
The staff helps to provide a caring family environment and people,
such as students from the surrounding universities, neighbors, and
friends often come to interact with the children and provide extra
help and support.
