Send a Child to School, Gift for Life

by Association of Locally Empowered Youth - Northern Mindanao Vetted since 2017 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit

Summary

Libertad Highlands Day Care Centre provide high quality pre-school education to rural children in Libertad, Misamis Oriental who have no way of benefiting from an early education. Recently we are focusing on the physical survival and health of children but there is a far greater need to include psychological needs. We will implement the 'Learning Through Play' (LTP) program, with its emphasis on the holistic development of children encompassing all all aspects of child development.

Challenge

Children in their early pre-school years are sometimes deprived of holistic education and most of them stay home. They are often subjected to join in farm labor thereby losing the best part of their childhood to holistic development. There is an urgent need to change this situation by providing these children with a venue and access to high quality education that will develop their social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills.

Solution

In addition to the emphasis on basic needs, there is now an increased recognition of the importance of addressing children's psychological needs. UNICEF, for example, is shifting its programming focus to include the socio-emotional and cognitive aspects of child development. The 'Learning Through Play' (LTP) program, with its emphasis on the holistic development of healthy children from birth will be our strategy in order to develop in a holistic manner young children disadvantaged by poverty.

Long-Term Impact

Overall development of the physical and emotional capacity of children with emphasis on simple, play-based activities using simple, low cost tools that have tremendous appeal and powerful messages as well as flexible, and is easily adapted to local circumstances.
