History


Childhope Philippines Foundation, Inc. (Childhope Philippines) is a not-for-profit, non-government organization working to promote the welfare of street children in the Philippines. It works toward upholding and protecting children’s rights, particularly children in street situations (street children).

Childhope Philippines traces its history back when Childhope International was founded in 1986 by individuals from children’s agencies who saw the need to address the plight of children in need of special protection, specifically on behalf of street children. In 1989, a regional office for Asia was established in Manila, Philippines after the First Regional Conference of Street Children in Asia was held—facilitating networking and collaboration among agencies working for street children in the Asian region.

In 1989, after Childhope International ceased its operations, Childhope (Asia office) continued its operations through an outreach, protection and education on the streets program, and technical assistance to other Asian nations who want to address the problem in their country.

In 1995, Childhope (Asia office) officially became Childhope Asia Philippines, Inc. as registered under the Securities and Exchange Commission.

In 2013, Childhope Asia Philippines, Inc. changed its name to Childhope Philippines Foundation, Inc. to show its focus on streamlining programs and services for Filipino street children.

Childhope Philippines Foundation, Inc. is registered, licensed and accredited by the Department of Social Welfare and Development, and the Philippine Council for NGO Certification.



What We Do


We believe that street children, as human beings created in the image of the Supreme Being, have inherent worth and dignity, and therefore should be given the right to live, to be protected from any form of abuse, and to be given opportunities to express themselves and maximize their potentials, in order to help themselves and others. We envision a Philippines where urban poor children, especially children in street situations, gain access to the fulfilment of their rights, and have them protected and upheld, for them to develop and become accepted and responsible members of society. Childhope Philippines works towards the protection and fulfillment of children’s rights through integrated direct service programs in education, health, and social services, aimed at the holistic development of Filipino street children in Metro Manila.

Last June 26, we started distributing 4th wave of relief operations for the street children and their families.

Mula po sa donation galing sa Mission Inclusion, we have prepared relief packs containing rice and assorted groceries and distributed to 120 street children and their families. They also received 5kls of fresh avocados donated by Mr. Lester Joseph Castolo and his friends.

Once again, thank you so much for always extending your help to street children and their families. We still have a long way to go, pero wala pong pagsubok na hindi natin kakayanin basta’t tulong tulong tayo.
