Progress Report for OCtober to December 2013

For the reporting period, the following street children participants successfully completed their trainings as follows last December 28, 2013: 1 street youth enrolled in Entrepreneurship training; 16 street youth enrolled in Cosmetology (Manicure and Pedicure); and 13 youth enrolled in the Hotel and Restaurant Service.   Those who were trained in Manicure and Pedicure are earning income in their respective areas. Meanwhile, youth who were trained on Hotel and Restaurant Service are undergoing On-the-Job Training (OJT) at Queensland Catering and St. Joseph Catering, while one of them is now employed in Jollibee as a service crew.  A youth participant who was trained on Entrepreneurship is now managing a barbecue business in Malate area. Moreover, these trained street youth have also attended sessions on Convention on the Rights of the Child, Protective Behaviour and Personal Safety, Skills for Life and Adolescent Reproductive Health.   CHAP volunteer, Mr. Kerr Brown conducted a training session on Proper Food Serving among twenty (20) participants and also assisted the youth who completed OJT training on preparation of Curriculum Vitae and proper etiquette in applying for a job.

Out of 36 children enrolled in formal school, two (2) children dropped out due to family problems and ran away from their families during the reporting period. The social worker visited the children's families and conducted counselling sessions with the children and their parents. The parents encouraged their children to return home but the children were not able to go back to school. One of them plans to take a short term course in the next school year since the family has difficulty to sustain her educational needs in college, while the other child plans to continue her studies in high school next school year. In the meantime, the children are undergoing counselling and regularly attend the alternative education and counselling sessions to help them to come up with good decisions.     Regular meetings, group counselling sessions and home/school visitations are continuously conducted to closely monitor the children's performance in school and to help them address their issues and concerns. Regular provisions of monthly allowances to children were disbursed on time to support their daily school needs.   Fifteen (15) EAP children continuously attend a tutorial class in Math held in the Childhope office every Saturday conducted by a voluntee.
