Providing temporary shelter, education and skills training for women, children, and youth

Describe the need affecting community
The State of Philippine Education & Employment In the Philippines having a good quality education has always been considered as an opportunity to a better quality of life. It’s an equalizing instrument between the rich and the poor. Like any other developing nation-state, the Philippines have various issues and challenges on the existing educational system. Various studies on the current student dropout rates in 2012 show that of the 10 pupils entering grade 1, 66% would eventually finish grade six; 43% would graduate high school; and only 20% would successfully finish college. Thus, we are talking about 80% of the at least 55 million school-aged Filipino being considered uneducated, drop out or unemployed. This means more than half of the Filipino people can’t fully access the right to education. One of the major reason for this is poverty. In order to fully understand the context of education in the Philippines, KKFI Program Director Rex Dayao opted to teach in a public school for twenty four months, as one of the fellows of Teach for the Philippines, a network partner of Teach for America and Teach for All. He discovered the following disconnect on why students are not able to finish schooling; 1. Poor facilities and limited resources in schools resulting to classroom congestion. 2. Malnutrition among early graders resulting to drop outs or death among learners 3. Lack of appreciation in education due to unemployment of parents, who, in the same manner were not able to finish school. 4. Poverty which force learners to be engaged in child labor or income generating endeavor. 5. Lack of financial aid among learners for school needs.
