School Scholarships and 'Back to School' Programmes for Street Children

In the Smokey Mountain area of ​​Manila thousands of families depend, directly or indirectly, on the waste industry. The Young Focus Foundation gives these underprivileged children and young people opportunities to develop intellectually, emotionally, psychologically and mentally by providing education and personal coaching in order to escape the vicious circle of poverty. Young Focus ensures that children from the slums go to school, supervises them with their homework and provides special education for dropouts and street children. The families of Young Focus children are also closely involved. Since its inception Young Focus has been situated right in the middle of its target group in Tondo Manila and, as a result, knows all the children and their families.
