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 โ€œschool on the streets.โ€ 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.

Letโ€™s connect on Facebook and share stories of how we can help the street children through your donations. Please like, follow and share our official Facebook page to help us educate and engage more people about our cause and update them about our organization.

This year has been difficult for all of us. As the holidays approach, street children and youth continue to face food insecurity, unable to access basic health services, and mental and emotional distress. Moreover, with the opening of classes, primarily shifting to online platforms, these children are all the more marginalized due to lack of or poor access to technologies that will greatly aid their learning.
No matter the obstacles, we remain committed to transforming street children into productive citizens through the care, love, and education of street educators and social workers and holistic programs–giving the street children hope and a future.

We need your help.

This December 1, from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59 ET, GlobalGiving is giving away one million dollars to nonprofits around the world. Your gift will help us unlock a greater share of those funds!

Together, we can continue to protect and support children and youth in street situations we serve throughout COVID19 and beyond. We need your support, now more than ever. Mark your calendars today!
