Challenge

Based on the study done by the Government, there are 30,000 street 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 dont have an access to go to formal school. While some of the older street children would like to have a sustainable and decent job. However, due to lack of education, no companies would like to render their service.

Solution

Under Childhope's Outreach & Protection Education on the Streets Program are Alternative Learning System (ALS) and Vocational Technical/Service Skills Training sessions. These sessions will give the older street children the opportunity to earn Ministry of Education accredited elementary & high school diplomas even outside the formal school system. Through Voc Tech/Service Skills, street children will give an opportunity to learn different skills training such as car washing, housekeeping etc.

Long-Term Impact

The street children and also if applicable, their parents and families as well as the communities will benefit from this project. The street children participants will have better direction on 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 ahead of them.
