ABOUT US


CLIENTS AREAS OF COVERAGE

Our primary target clients are poor, indigent male and female children from 4 up to 12 years old. Most of them live in makeshift structures or shacks of hollow blocks, cement, wood, cartons, board, iron sheets and various scrap materials built beside railway tracks, under bridges, on roads and sidewalks and any other land, which is vacant.  In most instances, these communities do not have running water or proper sewerage.  The people are often exposed to health hazards such as poor lighting and ventilation, accumulated garbage, foul odors, mosquitoes, flies, roaches, rats and other insects and pests.

Almost all of these children are studying in public schools.  Most of them finish 6th grade elementary school and go on to high school.  However, not all of them complete 4th year high school.  A number of them drop out after some time due to poverty or if they choose to help support their family by working as beggars, vendors, scavengers or other menial jobs.  Our services are not limited to them though.  We also serve elder youths and adults.

There is a high level of unemployment in these areas because there are not much vacancies or jobs suitable to their skill or education attainment and also because of laziness and hopelessness.  Many pass away their time or ignore their problems by gambling and drinking alcohol or taking drugs.  Many of those with a livelihood do not earn enough income to support their basic needs of food, clothing, shelter, health and education.  Most men are vendors, scavengers, construction workers and daily laborers.  Most of the women support by doing laundry or maid or tend store aside from taking care of the household.

Because most are busy making a living or trying to survive, many children are not attended to by parents or relatives.  Thus, they grow up hungry and malnourished, dirty, dishevelled or undressed.  They are not exposed to and are not able to learn proper and correct values by themselves.  What they mostly see and come to accept are wrong values and habits from the environment they grew up in.  All these factors contribute to their being potential street children, runaways and criminals, if no one will care for, listen to, teach, and love them.
