A day of reflection and sharing was devoted for the staff and prison guards from the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor), both from the minimum and medium security unit, last November 20, 2016. Held in one of the BuCor conference rooms in Bilibid, Muntinlupa City, forty-four (44) men and women underwent the Ninoy and Cory Aquino Foundation (NCAF)’s Journey Recollection.

Throughout the day, the participants were given time to look back at their lives and remember crucial moments that inspired them to dedicate their lives in service of others. Participants were also broken into groups and were given numerous opportunities to share their life-stories with one another. Finally, the participants participated in an affirmation activity, where each individual is given a chance to say “sorry” and “thank you” to anyone he or she wished to address. The recollection ended with a mass that was officiated by the Philippine Jesuit Prison Service (PJPS)’s own Fr. Eli Lumbo, SJ.

The Ninoy & Cory Aquino Foundation (NCAF) traces its roots to the Benigno S. Aquino, Jr. Foundation (BSAF), established by the late Senator’s widow in November 1983 to perpetuate his legacy.  It seeks to build on the legacy of Ninoy and Cory Aquino by supporting activities that embody the spirit of People Power as a strong and positive force for social change in a robust democracy. Since 2008, the Foundation has made a deliberate effort to strengthen this advocacy through leadership formation development.

The Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) aims to protect the public and prevent crimes in partnership with stakeholders by providing persons under custody opportunities for reformation, decent environment, and secure settings. The BuCor also aspires for a system that promotes a safer community, adhering to international standards and representing exemplary public service.
