Childhope Asia Philippines, Inc.

Childhope Asia Philippines is a not-for profit, non-government organization working to promote the welfare of street children in the Philippines.


For twenty-eight (28) years since 1989, Childhope Asia Philippines has tried its best to continuously respond yearly to the needs of about 1,200 street children in Metro Manila, who are exposed everyday to the hazards and risks of working and living on the streets. 

Childhope aims to empower street children and their families, and help them get access to better futures. It believes in education without borders, where the alternative education sessions seek to make a difference in the lives of street children by giving them the chance to read, write, and learn.

Childhope works to liberate the street children from the sufferings caused by working and living on the streets. It promotes and upholds the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, focusing on these disadvantaged children. More than teaching the street kids the basics of reading and writing, Childhope instills in them the values they need so they can grow up to be caring, confident, responsible, and resilient members of society.

Childhope has the most comprehensive Street Education Program in Metro Manila since it provides for basic but urgent needs to support and ensure the continuous and holistic learning and development of its street children participants, enrolled either in formal school or in alternative education. These include psycho-social interventions, medical and health services, paralegal assistance and skills training among street children. Sessions on the streets are conducted 5 days a week, Tuesdays to Saturdays, 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM through Childhope’s 16 Street Educators (teachers and social workers).
