The Street Education and Protection (STEP) Program

Childhope Philippines actively responds to the call on how to help the street children and youth through its Street Education and Protection (STEP) Program. Guided by the Caring-Healing-Teaching framework, the STEP Program has 4 major components. We put the best interest of the child at the center of the program and their holistic development as our main goal.

Education

The KalyEskwela literally translates to “school on the streets.” This part of the program uses a mobile van with audiovisual equipment to conduct alternative education sessions and basic literacy and numeracy classes. Under the DepEd-accredited Alternative Learning System (ALS), street children and youth learn through modules guided by our street educators trained as instructional managers.

We also provide educational aid to children who go back to the formal school system. For our older participants, we conduct trade and tech skills training (Youth Empowerment Project) to help them gain income to support themselves and their families.

Psychosocial Interventions

This section includes psychosocial aid and counseling. We help the kids and their parents cope up with stress and the challenges that they encounter while learning. Moreover, we provide assistance to shelters especially to those with completely neglected and abandoned children.

Health and Medical Services

The Mobile Health Clinic (KliniKalye) provides primary preventive medical care, consultations, and treatments. This ensures that the children are healthy and in full physical capacity to learn.

Skills Development

We train the street children in leadership, computer literacy, sports, arts, and other skills. We help them develop these skills, nurture their good traits, and apply the values they have learned in life planning.
