The Philippines is home to a staggering number of children who live on the streets. Faced with a multitude of every day challenges, many stop schooling. Some have taken on the task of encouraging the children to dream big for themselves and their families. These are the life and times of a volunteer tutor in the Philippines.

You've been for us this past 2014 with your time, talent, thoughts and treasures and we really do appreciate it!
So what's the OYOTT project?
We know that you know (that we know that you know) about the help we give the children from He Cares foundation. These children live on the streets, a very challenging environment to flourish in. The support they get from the short times of chatting and talking about school and homework brings a load of difference in their lives!
BUT sometimes our BUSY SCHEDULES get in the way of our trying to spend time with them.
Now we thought of a way to help YOU and help the CHILDREN more effectively and that is to have OYOTT ... On Your Own Time Tutoring.
You get to tell us when you wish to help a child with his studies and we coordinate with the children. You will get 1 child to help (or let us know if you want more children to help). You may tell us which grade level you prefer (usually Grades 1 to 6). The child will bring his own books and you will just need to bring scratch paper and a pen. You may bring a book to read together if you like. Take note that English is the subject they need help with the most and Math comes in second.
Venue will be in the He Cares Foundation center at #9 Mines St., Project 6, Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines.
To join send an e-mail to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you!
**** An important reminder: You don't have to be a teacher. We appreciate everyone from all walks of life. We encourage you to practice conversational English if ever their studies are not familiar to you.
