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.

We are about to finish school year 2020/2021! Yes, it has been such a challenging time for our students, studying online (with limited internet access) and using printed modules. As far as we know, the next school year 2021/2022 will start in a similar way – i.e. distance learning. The Philippine government doesn’t seem to have any intention of opening up schools yet because of Covid-19 restrictions.

But, whatever the restrictions and uncertainties, as Young Focus, we want our students to be prepared for the next school year. As with last year we will provide them with the school materials required by their schools. We are therefore launching an annual summer campaign BACK TO SCHOOL to raise sufficient funds to provide for all our 700 elementary, high school and college students. Also we will provide school materials for students in our Catch-UP program – which reaches out to school dropouts.

Please join our BACK TO SCHOOL summer campaign and donate towards uniforms, school bags, shoes, books and other school materials. You can donate via our website www.youngfocus.org/back-to-school: or via this crowdfunding link: www.whydonate.eu/donate/back-to-school/en
