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.

WHO: We are tutoring scholars of He Cares Foundation. They are trying to maintain a certain grade average to remain in the program. They live in informal settler communities.
WHAT: We will teach basic English and Math. We will have materials that we can use to practice their skills (books, worksheets, etc) and we will have an orientation and setup at 1 to 2PM. Tutoring is only 1 hour (from 2-3PM). If there is a slight chance you will be late, please WATCH THIS ORIENTATION VIDEO.
WHY: Our goal is to encourage the children to stay in school and to build their confidence that they can do it. Many of them are really smart and talented but they face tremendous challenges due to their environment, preventing them to even want to continue schooling.
HOW: We will help you with the different ways to tutor the child. From playing the dictionary game, to spelling, to multiplication drills.
