The ROHEI Foundation Pre-adoption and Foster Care Forum for February will be held ONLINE on February 15, 2023 (Tuesday) from 6:30PM to 9:00PM.
Here are some things you should know prior to the event to help you prepare:
1. Zoom room opens at 6:10PM. Please log on before 6:30PM as we will be starting promptly.
2. For married couples, BOTH of you should attend if you wish to obtain a Certificate of Attendance, but only one of you needs to register through this link.
The Certificate of Attendance is one of the requirements for pursuing legal foster care or adoption in the Philippines. While registration is free and you can join the Forum without availing a certificate, ROHEI Foundation is offering the Certificate of Attendance for a fee (P1000 for Foster Care, P1800 for Pre-Adoption & Foster Care for singles, P2000 for Pre-Adoption & Foster Care for married couples). This fee includes an e-certificate, a printed certificate, and a physical copy of our Adoption Journal. This journal will serve as a guide for your adoption journey. If you wish to avail of the certificate, kindly indicate so in our evaluation form which will be sent during the event.
3. Kindly keep your cameras on for the duration of the event as proof of your attendance. This is required for the issuance of a Certificate of Attendance. However, should you have any technical difficulties in relation to the opening of your camera, just let us know.
4. As of the moment, ROHEI Foundation can only accommodate the adoption and foster care processes of those with permanent residences within the National Capital Region. This is as per the guidelines of the DSWD regarding our license as a Child-Placing Agency (CPA), which has not yet expanded beyond NCR. HOWEVER, our Forum is open to ANYONE and our Certificates are valid nationwide. They will be recognized by the DSWD and other CPAs in the country.
Thank you so much and looking forward to seeing you there!
