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

Solution

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

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
