Where We Work

In the Smokey Mountain area of Manila, thousands of families rely directly or indirectly on the garbage ‘industry’.

Jobs range from scavenging for recyclable materials to driving bike taxis. The average family income with these jobs is $5 USD/day.

Financial constraints, as well as a lack of educational and social support, mean that many children are unable to complete their education, and in turn, are unable to break the cycle of poverty.

What We Want

Young Focus wants young people to have the chance to develop themselves intellectually, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually through education.

Young Focus wants to see young people develop their (hidden) talents and, in doing so, escape the vicious circle of poverty.

Our Solution

Young Focus runs a preschool to ensure children aged 3 – 5 have access to early education and care. This is combined with training for their parents in health, nutrition, hygiene and parenting skills. Young Focus works with children aged 5 – 20 to make sure they are enrolled in schools and colleges, also providing after-school learning support. For those who have dropped out of school there are education programs to prepare children for re-enrollment. Young Focus provides individual social support and social education for all the students and their families.

Impact

A changed mindset means children believe they can have a better situation than their parents, and have the self-confidence and independence to create their own path in life to end the cycle of poverty.
