More street children and youth enrolled in formal school

As the Philippines enters various lockdowns every month — with Manila on its third strictest lockdown this 2021 since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out last year — online classes in the Philippines will continue. Most students and teachers would like to go back to face-to-face classes, but they really can’t do anything, for now, other than follow the government’s recommendation to continue mobile learning.

The Philippine government, together with the Department of Education (DepEd), announced last August 5 that the school year for 2021 will officially open on September 13 and shall end on June 24, 2022. However, the fact remains that most youth can’t attend school, whether it is online or modular classes, due to a lack of material resources and provision. Hence, they become out-of-school youths.

How Childhope Philippines helped street children and youth in Metro Manila

Good news! The number of street children and youth enrolled in formal school has increased this year.

Based on the recent data recorded by Childhope Philippines’ Street Education Unit, a 44% increase in the number of street children and youth under their program enrolled this for SY 2021-2022.

This year, 372 students enrolled: Elementary - 184 students; Junior High School – 156; Senior High School -17; and College – 15

The struggle to get school supplies, mobile gadgets, stable internet connection, financial provision to pay bills, and other basic needs are too much to handle for parents who are truly having a hard time providing. This is most especially true with underprivileged families and children.

In light of this, Childhope Philippines continues its activities for street children, so they continue learning despite the struggle brought by the pandemic. The activities include the KalyEskwela Mobile Community Learning Hub (KMCLH), school supplies distribution, and Online Alternative Education Sessions.

The KalyEskwela Mobile Community Learning Hub has a huge impact on street children, especially children enrolled in formal school. As a result, they were able to continue their online classes. And this is the reason why other street children are encouraged to study again because they know they have reliable help specifically on educational support from Childhope Philippines.

The regular intervention or counseling of their social workers on street children has also helped a lot to address their family and school problems and encourage them to continue their education or to go back to formal school.

Help Street Children Achieve Their Potential Today

Childhope Philippines is a non-profit organization for children in the Philippines, committed to promoting welfare, upholding, and protecting children’s rights, particularly children in street situations. Empower every student, including the street children, by volunteering and helping them attain their right to education in these trying times.

Together, let us contribute to a better future by giving hope to every child who will be the next generation.
