The Share a Child Movement Inc. is a non-government organization established in 1982 by Atty. Esperanza G. Valenzona, to continue the work that she had been doing with children in the Cebu City Jail while she was president of the Cebu chapter of the Federacion Internacional de Abogadas (FIDA). A non-stock, non-profit organization registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and accredited as a child and youth welfare agency by the Department of Social Welfare and Development, as well as by the Cebu City Government, Share a Child Movement sees its role as a bridge between the "haves" and the "have-nots".
They raise funds out of donations from well-to-do individuals and families, as well as corporations within and outside the Cebuano community, for programs and services that benefit children and youth. Its unique character comes from its ability to survive more than 20 years on support from the local community, believing that the community has a stake in the rearing of all its children, including the disadvantaged and the marginalized, so that they would grow up to become self-reliant and productive citizens who are neither burdens nor a danger to society.
