What is a Non-profit Organization?

Non-profit or non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are citizen-based groups that function free of profit and independent of government. As the name implies, they operate on community, national, and multinational levels driven by a specific social or political purpose.

Childhope Philippines in Teaching Street Children

Despite the efforts of the government to improve Manila, the capital city remains one of the places in the country where people live in abject poverty. As a result, most girls end up getting mired in prostitution and many kids live in the streets. What’s more, although the Philippines placed high in English proficiency, these out-of-school youth barely speak English and know basic skills needed for an office work. Therefore, these handicaps minimize their chances of finding a proper job that will help sustain their needs.

Out of all the given charity types, Childhope chose to be an NGO for the children in the Philippines. Our goal is to empower these street kids and their families, and help them get access to better futures. To realize this, since 1989, we have continuously tried our best to respond to the needs of street children who are exposed to the risks of working and living on the streets. Most importantly, we believe in education without borders. Thus, our alternative learning sessions aim to make difference in the lives of street children by giving them the chance to read, write, and learn.

Childhope Philippines works to free these children from the suffering caused by working and living on the streets. More than teaching street children the basics of reading and writing, we hope to instill in them the values they need to grow as caring, confident, responsible, and resilient members of our society. To continue doing this, Childhope needs funds and passionate people to help our cause. Are you the one we’re looking for? Become a part of our growing family—volunteer and donate today.
