    Venue/Beneficiaries:

    The project was implemented in Mandaue City, Cebu, Philippines. One hundred one (101) students availed of the program. They come mostly from troubled homes and are slum dwellers from 15 villages.

    They are between 15-25 years of age categorized as youths at risk of injustice because they have low educational level and lack skills but are co breadwinners. They are also raised in areas with distorted modeling of child support and development. Drug trade, sodomy, child prostitution, and other subhuman cultures are rampant in their communities and some students are even actively engaged. All services such as Treatment Program, Family Enrichment, Academic and Skills Training were mostly implemented in the school except during camping.

    They were run between June 2012 and May 2013. Boys and girls have equal access to the program.
