    Children are dependent on their parents or caregivers for every aspect of their existence. Inadequate parenting affect every aspect of their children’s existence.

  3. Dealt with 219 cases of adult drug addiction

    Badisa Trio is first and foremost a child protection agency, so when drug addiction of parents threaten the lives of children we help parents get the help they need.

  4. Helped 211 people with relationship problems

    Last year Badisa Trio helped 211 people who had relationship or marital problems. In these cases relationships issues led to various other issues within the family. Badisa Trio aims to keep families together and therefor assist families in various ways to strengthen bonds.
