Country: Philippines
Duration: 2 weeks to 2 months
Approx Costs: 750 to 2000 $ Dollars (US)

Located in Ormuc city, volunteer at a shelter/rehabilitation center for street kids and disadvantaged youth. Most children who have settled on the streets have families of their own but turn to the streets in search of food. 

Glue sniffing, known as "rugby" is a common addiction amongst the street children who turn to this drug to suppress their hunger pains.

Volunteers can assist the social welfare office in helping to give the simple things these children lack in life, such as compassion, trust, love, education and food. This project aims to take these youth off the streets by training them to be self-reliant or self-employed through education, support and counseling. The project addresses social and physical issues affecting youth, such as gender, reproductive health, and drug abuse through counseling and education. Volunteers help initiate talks about the existence of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections.
