The implementation of the inter-country adoption program under the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) dates back to the late 60’s. In the 70’s, the Bureau of Family and Child Welfare handled the program, and then in 1991 the program was transferred to the Special Child Welfare Services Unit (SCWSU), Office of the Minister, MSSD. In 1991, the SCWSU was transformed into the Philippine Inter-Country Adoption Unit (PIAU) and operated as such for four (4) years. In June 1995, the PIAU was abolished with the passage of Republic Act 8043, otherwise known as the Inter-Country Adoption Act of 1995. Under this Act, the Inter-Country Adoption Board (ICAB) was created to act as the Central Authority in matters relating to inter-country adoption of Filipino children and as the policy making body for purposes of carrying-out the provisions of the ICA Act of 1995.
The ICAB’s so-called “conception” took nine (9) years. It was “conceived” in 1986 during the presidency of Mrs. Corazon C. Aquino and “delivered” in June 7, 1995 under the administration of President Fidel V. Ramos with the enactment of Republic Act No. 8043. RA 8043 is indeed a landmark legislation in the field of child welfare. It provided the legal base for the implementation of the Philippine inter-country adoption program.
The Board is the policy-making authority. The Board sets guidelines for the manner of selection and matching of prospective adoptive parents and verifies that a child is qualified for adoption. The Board makes the final decisions on adoption applications and matching proposals.
Last February 18-21, 2020, ICAB conducted their “Capacity Building Training for Social Workers in Handling and Preparation of Children for adoption”. Representatives from the Region III sector and some directors attended the training. Capacity building is the process by which individuals and organizations obtain, improve, and retain the skills, knowledge, tools, equipment, and other resources needed to do their jobs competently. It allows individuals and organizations to perform at a greater capacity.

This venue is ideal for seminars, workshops or trainings of 50-80pax (depending on seating and set-up). The Lakeside Hall is located near the Family Cabins, Triplex Rooms, and Bunk Cottages.
