We are building a life competence center that provides 600 street youth alternative learning, life skills, tutorial and income generation that bring them back to formal schooling.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The project addresses poverty, illiteracy and the impact of exploitation on the lives of 600 street children in southern Philippines. The life competence center provides free alternative learning, tutorial and life skills that give them better chances of being transitioned to formal schooling. They also avail voluntary HIV and health screening while opportunities for entrepreneurial activities that make them earn and mobilise life savings to secure own future is afforded
How will this project solve this problem?
We facilitate learning unique to each youth, engage them in dream-building, training, product development and fairs. Youth craft art pieces out of their healing therapy sent to sponsors as gifts. We bridge communication between parent and children
Potential Long Term Impact
600 street youth every year are prepared to go back to school, complete primary or secondary education, engage in income generation and mobilize savings that secure their future, end cycle of poverty and enjoy productive lives
