Inspiring Street Youth to be an Entrepreneur.

As part of Childhope Philippines’ mission to empower youth in street situations, Childhope sparks and nurtures the entrepreneurial spirit inside youth and provides them with concrete skills and experience to succeed in the jobs of tomorrow.

Under its banner program, the Street Education and Protection Program (STEPP), the Vocational - Technical Skills Training Project for street youth gives opportunities to develop their skills, build their character and confidence, in the hope of finding a decent job to earn income to support themselves and their families.

Recently, training in fabric detergent making, dishwashing soap making, and perfume making was conducted wherein fourteen (14) street youth participated. Facilitated by Ms. Loida Ramos Buhian, one of Childhope’s staff and Voc-Tech Skills Trainer, the said trainings introduced new skills to the new batch of participants, which will enable them to create their own business and earn money.

“Through Voc-Tech Project, street youths gain first-hand experience starting and operating a successful business, from creating a business plan, through development, to taking their product to market.” Ms. Buhian said.

“My experience with this kind of business trainings had a profound impact on my thinking toward business. Importantly, this experience gave me a solid foundation and confidence to create my own business”, street youth Jay said.

As an important part of the solution to equip today’s youth, Childhope Philippines will continuously provide skills training to the underprivileged youth and their families to enable them to earn for independent living and provide a sustainable pathway out from staying and living on the streets.
