About Childhope Philippines’ Young Entrepreneur Group (YEG)

The Young Entrepreneur Group (YEG) is a project of Childhope Philippines that aligns with the Project Bamboo, which empowers street youth from underprivileged areas in Metro Manila to become successful entrepreneurs.

Through workshops, mentoring, and access to resources, the program equips young individuals with the skills and knowledge needed to launch and grow their own businesses, creating a brighter future for themselves and their communities.

What is Project Bamboo?

Project Bamboo provides street youth with the opportunity to address their economic needs in practical ways. This undertaking aims to equip street youth with vocational and technical skills that would allow them to become gainfully employed or to establish their own business enterprise in the future.

Under Project Bamboo, the ones in charge of the livelihood trainings will be facilitators and resource persons from partner nongovernment organizations that run social enterprises. They’ll also come from small businesses, owners who are willing to impart their knowledge and expertise on making different products which they sell for a living.
