History

DSC04210The work began on January 22, 2010 with the first BB orientation seminar held at Grace Christian College, Quezon City, Metro Manila. This led to more orientation seminars when news travelled to others who wanted to know more about the ministry. By the end of 2010, five new BB companies were formed.

A further ten more companies were formed in 2011 and by the end of 2011, BB Philippines has a total membership of 1500 Boys and Girls.

The BB Philippines was officially registered with the government on May 4, 2012 taking on the name of “The Brigade, Philippines”. BB Philippines was officially admitted as full member of BB Asia on 29 December 2012.

One of the major milestones achieved since the inception was the partnership with a Christian NGO, The Center for Community Transformation to recruit five-hundred street and homeless Boys and Girls into the Brigade ministry. They were recruited in January 2011 and were officially enrolled as members of the Brigade in April 2011. Lives were transformed and today we see a more discipline and purposeful life in them. The first batch of twenty Boys and Girls attended the Leadership Development Course Basic level (equivalent to NCOs Proficiency Star) in Taygaytay from August 27th to 28th, 2011.

In 2012, the Center for Community Transformation decided to adopt the BB ministry as one of their main vehicle to reach out to the children and youths in their centres throughout the Philippines. Two trainings were conducted on March 11, 2012 and July 2, 2012 to equip their officers to run the BB program in their respective centres throughout the country.

About Us

On 7 May 2002 , at the East Asia Regional Fellowship meeting held in Bangkok , Thailand , the idea of BB Asia was first mooted and a Pro-tem Committee formed under the chairmanship of Mr Michael Moorthy, the Brigade President of BB Malaysia. The paper entitled 'Extending The Boys' Brigade', proposing the new international confederation came from Mr Lim K Tham of BB Singapore.

BB Asia was officially inaugurated on 26 July 2003 in Johor Baru when BB representatives from Hong Kong , Indonesia , Malaysia , Singapore and Thailand signed a memorandum of agreement giving birth to the regional association.
