Childhope Asia Philippines

Childhope Asia Philippines (CHAP) is an international, non-profit, non-political, non-sectarian organization whose principal purpose is to advocate for the cause of street children throughout the world. It works toward the liberation of the child from the suffering caused by working and living on the street.

There are millions of impoverished children on the street in the world. In different countries, there are various alternatives for street children but these initiatives are limited. The role of CHILDHOPE is to act as a facilitator among the different organizations and bring them together and work with them in defending the rights of the street children.

One of their programs is the education of street children. With the support of The Body Shop, who has generously provided two "Mobile Education" vans. These vans are self-contained classrooms with chairs, tables, books, educational games, and an audio-visual system. The vans go around various places in Metro Manila to provide basic lessons to the children.

In connection with the turn-over of the second van, a photo exhibit was prepared by a small group of volunteer photographers, myself included. The group was led and guided by veteran Joachim Bondoc. I was fortunate to have three of my photographs included in the exhibit.
