CHALLENGES FOR CHILDREN IN POVERTY

children in mountain

Sustainable Livelihood Projects Cebu (SLPC) is an organization committed to help both the children and their families in poor communities.

We are able to feed and do activities with over 120 children in each place every feeding schedule. We also provide help for the education of some of the children in these communities. We aim to have additional more scholars and consistently help them until they graduate.

Our goal is to provide long term help … Yes, helping with the education of some children and weekly feeding can help but we do not want the children and families in these communities to keep on depending on people to just hand them food or any kind of donation, as much as possible we want them to eventually stand on their own and for the parents to provide for their own family.

From time to time we welcome Food donations, Toy donations and Monetary donations as well as accepting study tours. This is how we get our funding but with the new communities that we support and the increasing number of children, these are not enough, we are not able to do it on our own.

This is why we offer an opportunity for individuals from different countries to join our organization and become a member. We are always happy to have additional help with our activities and support for our programs especially the children. In this way we can do what we do and provide the help to the communities we support more consistently.

SLPC helps children on the streets.

Defining Filipino street children [From Wiki]
According to the "A Better Life" foundation, there are three different categories of street children:

1: Children on the streets work on the streets but do not live there. They generally have a home to return to after working, and some even continue to attend school while working long hours on the streets.


2: Children of the street make their homes on the street. They often create a sort of family with their fellow street children. Some of them still have family ties, but do not visit them and some even see these ties as bad.

3: Completely abandoned children have no family ties and are entirely on their own for physical and psychological survival.
