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.
