YOUNG FOCUS gives underprivileged children and young people the chance to develop themselves intellectually, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually by providing education and supporting their personal growth.

YOUNG FOCUS believes working with the whole family is the key to enhancing the lives of children and future generations.

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

Pre-school, elementary, high school and college education

Special education for school drop-outs and street youth

Nutrition and nutrition education to prevent and eliminate malnutrition

Social care, education on family care and community development

...children and students enrolled in all our programs

...students in our regular sponsorship program

...children in our preschool

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 for a family 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.

ALS PASSERS 2019

Here they are - the ALS (*) students who passed their A&E (**) exam!!! 🙂

More than half of them plan to enroll in college, while the others will continue with skills training courses.

ALS Coordinator, Angelo Elsisura was satisfied with the results, but expressed regret that some students were only a few points away from the passing grade. They were encouraged to re-enroll and continue with the program.

Taking VJ dela Cruz’s example who is a former YoUNgLI (***) participant, and then joined ALS. He took the A&E test in 2018, but failed. Yet he did not allow his failure to stop him from trying again. With strong determination, he finished another year in the program and passed the recent exam. He now plans to take Automotive Servicing at a technical vocational school.
