Summary

Street children generally lack access to public school services due primarily to poverty. These children have also limited access to food, shelter, protection, and health. Through the Street Education Program of Childhope, street children will be assisted and provided basic education and meals. Childhope will also encourage the street youth to engage in different livelihood/service skills training. This will help the youth to have a sustainable job and have an income generating activities.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Based on the study done by the Government, there are 222,400 children who live in the streets of Metro Manila. Some children live with their families while some live on their own. These children have limited access to food, shelter, protection, and health; and these children don't have a chance to go to formal school. So Childhope's program the Outreach and Protection / Education on the Streets will give the street children a chance to learn basic education etc through our the Street Educators.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Street Educators are the primary care givers and serve as role models and change agents. Each one is chosen and trained to establish and sustain relationships with street children, singly or in groups, in their current environment. They facilitate sessions on basic education, alternative and values education, life skills and life goals, child rights, the effects of drug abuse, protection from sexual abuse, primary health care and nutrition and among others from Tuesday to Saturday.

Potential Long Term Impact

The street children & their families (if still applicable) as well as the communities will benefit from this project since most of the street children participants will have better direction in life and will no longer be engaged in illegal and unproductive activities but will be worthy and productive citizens of their community. The street children will have the opportunity to develop life goals and to have a better future by motivating these children to engage in service skills training.
