Summary

HOST-NGO is striving to protect an average of 500 street children every year in the Philippines by providing them with access to basic needs (food, education, hygiene and healthcare) and offering them the chance for better future opportunities.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There are 1.5 million children in the Philippines living and/or working in the streets as their families are unable to feed them or send them to school. Often marginalized, they don't have access to good nutrition, education, healthcare and suffer from a critical lack of parental guidance and protection implying dangers or hazards. In Bacolod City, there are around 14,000 out-of-school children, which represent 7% of the total number of youth and over 13% of the number of children aged 10 to 19.

How will this project solve this problem?

Providing housing and food to street children and children at risk in public shelters, ensuring better health and hygiene, offering education and training opportunities, and helping finding a home for the kids (family reunion or childcare programs) will allow these children to benefit from better chances in the future.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project serves around 500 kids per year ensuring their protection by getting them off the streets and into safe homes (in shelters or families). Helping to remove the children from the streets and reintegrating them into the society will allow them to become responsible and active citizens. They will get the chance of involving into the development of their own communities and it will empower them to promote human values and mutual aid.
